I'd love to go to America one day. The only thing that puts me off is that it's full of Americans.

Easy. The wifeís American bless her.

You could also take a trip to Parump which is a sprawling low rent suburb just over the hill (so you canít see it from downtown) - itís where the workers (including the prostitutes live). I stopped when driving through for a Big Mac at the Golden Arch and Ö. got moving right on out of there pretty fast!

Isnít Adele doing a residency in Las Vegas?


Aye. f*ck Vegas. Not worth the risk. You could get offered free tickets, or worse, win them.

Must admit that places like Vegas and Miami are high on the list of places I'd never want to visit.

Would love to go to Chicago, New Orleans and San Francisco. Could pop to all 3 on a day trip...

Sadly you would spend an awful lot of time in the air.
There are some cool places in Miami, I think Vegas is one of those places you have to see once. I would have been very happy if my first trip was my last, it wasnt.
Chicago is the most under rated city in America.

As someone who has spent a bit of time there (in fact created this account there 15 years ago), my opinion is is somewhere in the middle. I do gamble (poker), so I personally love that side of it (the fake skill games like blackjack do nothing for me personally though).

I would say itís pretty good for 3 days - as others have said thereís loads of stuff to see and do, including some surprising stuff like Red Rock canyon. The scenery is immense in scale basically any direction 10 miles out of Vegas.

But I would have it behind New York, LA, San Francisco, Chicago, New Orleans, Austin, even Seattle and Boston as a destination for someone who hasnít been to the US, unless they really like pool parties and strippers.

Also (not having a go at the poster above particularly, I think this is fairly common) itís still amazing to me how people can say ďI would love America if not for the AmericansĒ in a way they wouldnt dream of saying about say Spain or India or Nigeria or anywhere else. Like anywhere there are twats, but there are also some of the kindest, warmest, most reasonable people Iíve ever met.

An American said to me that as long as you avoid California then Americans are lovely . Bit like the UK and London.

I haven't been back to Vegas since the shooting, but if you are thinking about a visit, then a trip to downtown Vegas is a must. Downtown is not so much a rip off like the main strip and it is a whole lot cheaper (gaming/beers/food etc). Great atmosphere too.

Never been so I can't comment. I took him to mean California is almost a separate entity from the rest of the country and the media image that annoys Americans and rest of the world largely emanates from California.

Dunno.

I am always dubious about castigating a certain region of people.  Is there not twats everywhere

Classic H&v thread drift!!

There's some odd folk in central Florida, my Mrs has a villa near Orlando and trips to Wal-Mart are eye opening!

Anyway, Boris permitting we are flying out to Miami 30th Dec.
