Places to Stay:
A few people have asked if there are places to stay close to the events center. The Events Center has RV spaces available (see the bottom of the show application page) and there are several motels close by and the casinos are close too. Kayak.com lists some close by ones. You can narrow the search in the location box:
A friend of mine stays at the SandsRegency Hotel Casino when he visits. They usually have some good deals going. I did a quick check and found their deals page:
Once he visited the first time they keep sending him free nights tickets.
Motel 6 is about a block away:
Days Inn is just a little further:
Americas Best Travel Inn is right at the freeway exit too:
There is a 24 hour Denny's and a Carrows restaurant very close. (walking dist. from motels, right at the freeway exit)
Let's make this a fun forum to keep interest and excitement up for the shows!
