Here or Vegas?

My husband and I always go to Vegas every March. We are "considering" Black Hawk instead in 2010, since we heard about this place from an acquaintance. Is it warm there in March (I know I could look it up but figured I'd ask as long as I am asking other questions - we are from MN and have enough cold all winter). Does anyone do both and which would you recommend. We usually just do casinos and sightseeing, occasionally a show. I love the excitement of Vegas and don't want to change our routine just to be disappointed, but we NEVER win anything in Vegas and this acquaintance told us he has good luck on the slots in Black Hawk. Thanks in advance.

Two very different places. Vegas always has something going on. The casinos in Black Hawk are now open 24 hours but they are not as thrilling as Vegas. It's a nice place for us locals but for a vacation I don't know that it would be my choice. As far as March weather, it's usually snowy that time of the year but a lot warmer than MN. It might be good for a couple of days in Blackhawk, longer and you would be wishing you were elsewhere.

nevera - thanks for the info - I love Vegas and I think I would be disappointed not going there for my annual vacation. Black Hawk would be OK I think, as you say, if we just did a long weekend but I am not ready to give up Vegas Yet - my husband was actually the one that mentioned trying something different. I've got it - - a girls long weekend in Vegas and a week in Black Hawk with him - ha!!
