I have a complicated relationship with Vegas. I used to think I hated it but 2 years staying away have added a rose colored tint to those glasses. Previous company I worked for sent me there for a week every year for a conference. Changed companies and they wanted to send me there for a week every year for a different
conference (You want me to go where? Sonofa....). It's the airport and city I've traveled to most outside of where I've lived, which I've always found a bit depressing - especially since I don't gamble. It got to the point I'd change hotels a couple times during the week just for a tiny change of pace. However - I've had some experiences there that would be hard to get anywhere else. I saw a sumo match and got to meet several wrestlers. We bonded over the challenges of airtravel for larger than average people. I'm 6'2 with very broad shoulders but clearly not in the same league as them. I have a photo with me and 3 of them. Concerts, shows, great food, trips to Red Rocks, tour of the Hover Dam, trips farther afield than the strip for normal priced food etc. Vendor party which grossly underspent their minimum so the Pappy 23 year flowed freely.
So you can find some interesting things to do and the concentration of shows\events is great if the timing and right events for you line up with your trip. I also recognize the fact that I've paid for very little of these experiences myself could add a bit of bias to my viewpoint. I doubt I'd ever travel there on my own dime for a vacation given the number of times I've been there

I like large cities. I like European cities - large and small. But Frankfurt was an exception.

The airport was the highlight of Frankfurt. I was so bored that I visited the ECB.
Agreed. We had a 8 hour layover there on our way to Africa and, since we transit FRA often, seemed like a good time to see if we should spend more time there in the future. Easy answer - nope no need to go back. Very nice Lufthansa arrival lounge and plentiful lounge showers if you're continuing your journey onward.
