    Southwest flies out of Minneapolis and to Vegas (not direct though, at least not daily) and they don't even release flights until 6-7 months in advance. They will open up flights in September through mid April, so you might have to wait til October or November for May travel dates. While they're not as "discount" as they once were, I appreciate the free checked bags. And would think that their flights being available might create competition, bringing other fares down some. You have to search on their site - their flights don't show up on Expedia, kayak, etc. 

    Thank you. I will keep that in mind.

    Can you play with the dates? We once flew to Vegas for a wedding. Be changing the number of days in our trip our ticket prices dropped dramatically. It was weird. Staying for just a 3 day weekend was the most expensive option. 

    Yes, I've been playing with dates. We are hoping for a 10 day vacation and trying to work around everyone's work schedule.

    Depending on where you are flying out of, Vegas flights have jumped in price in the past 6-8 months.  We started looking at flights (late June trip) in March and didn't book until April and got hit by a 30-40% increase.

    My guess based on planning in the past is you are looking a little early.  I think there is a decent chance prices could come down if fuel costs continue to trend lower.  I would probably gamble and wait a bit.  

    I was thinking that too. I'm sure gas prices have increased flight costs. Hopefully gas prices keep going down. What websites do you look at for finding cheaper flights?

  4. Dh and I plus two of our adult boys plan to fly to Las Vegas, rent an RV, drive to Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion National Parks then back to Vegas to fly home.

    I was hoping for cheaper flight to Vegas, but am not finding any. Is it better to wait a while? Am I looking too early? We are hoping to go the end of April or early May, so we still have time. Anyone have any suggestions?

  5. I really like the Marvel movies including the first Dr Strange. I wanted to see the second one, however two of my son's saw it and didn't like it. One of them said I wouldn't like it either. I looked up the review on Plugged-In and decided not to see it. So disappointing, Disney took Marvel to the horror level.

    This magnetic wrist band for tools is also a good idea.
