Yeah L.A was meh.

On SM-G925I using BigFooty.com mobile app
Loved Santa Monica the first couple of times but when I went back about 2 & 1/2 years ago I found it a bit meh.

Hollywood is a dive

Stayed outside LA in San Clemente and Temecula (near the wineries) both were really nice and would go back again

Las Vegas.

Granted, I went there alone, in July, had to limit my spending, and was there specifically for an event related to my sports autograph collecting projects so I was focused on that first. But being in the middle of the desert in the middle of summer, hobbling around on an ankle that I had re-sprained the day before wasn't exactly fun. Maybe If I had put aside a couple hundred dollars to get into some cheapo poker tournaments, and more time to see a show or two, or had my wife and/or friends with me it would have been more fun. But I just didn't see the appeal to it.

The event I was there for was good at least.
Yeah, I don't get the Vegas thing. Casinos, clubs, booze and parties. We have that here in Oz.

That's pretty much the case for any pub, club or casino. The things you do in Vegas can be done in almost every city in the world.
I doubt many would make the effort to fly all the way from Australia and just go to Vegas. From within North America though, it’s a cheap sunny destination to go party for a couple of days. Or catch a show, watch Raiders, Golden Knights etc.

An aside, is anyone here starting to contemplate overseas travel for this time next year, or is the feeling that we will be waiting longer?

I would love to but with 3 os trips curtailed in the last 2 years I don't have it in me to be disappointed again.

As for OS travel in 2022…it may be possible to certain places, but there will still be strict measures in place on your return to Australia. My guess anyway.
