The anticipation, the merriment, the copious of amounts of toys, games, and candy, and the guilt-free nature of the unabashed materialism of it all makes it the best day of the year for a kid.

I’ve broken down my latest trip to Las Vegas into Thumbs Up and Thumbs Down ratings to accurately convey where you should and shouldn’t go and what you should and shouldn’t do. This is my eighth trip to Las Vegas in four years, so I have a decent handle on where to go and what to do. See if you agree with my assessment. Did your favorite place make the list?
