Do you prefer Vegas in the "Classic" days like the 60's-70's or now. Personally I thing Vegas has a lot more class in the old days when the mafia called the shots and the rat pack performed shows. I really dont care for all the Disney crap they have now..

Ya, Vegas has changed so much since when we moved there in 1995. But then again, it's weird to live there and try and go do stuff, it feels so weird being with all the tourists. Now it is way too much of a gigantic amusement park, rather than the glamorous jet-set city that it used to be. Just my opinion.

I would say the old way. From what my dad tells me about the place from back in the day, it was more about the gambling. Even watching the movie "Casino" makes me believe that the old days were probably better than now. Vegas is just like a giant Disneyland now, it lacks some of the class that it had around 30 years ago, and I believe it has lost some of its luster.

Twenty bucks says you weren't in Vegas "then" and you haven't been there "now".
