With the federal government partial shut down, the federal park and attractions around Las Vegas and throughout Nevada are closed.

A small portion of my trip is to federal parks that surround Las Vegas  I think it  is a shame the government is so messed up that we have to close these visitor entertainment areas.  I will continue to come to Vegas but not happy with the parks closures.  David J.  Denver CO.

On past trips I have visited Death Valley, Yosemite, Red Rock Canyon, and the Grand Canyon, just to name a few. This trip is strictly for glitz, glamour, gambling and bonding time with my daughter. I certainly hope he Congress has learned something from their shutdown. The American people want them to compromise and keep this country running, not least among the reasons is that we LOVE our National Parks. Debbie Westerville OH

It does not impact our visit this year so far but as the time nears for our vacation from Oct 23 to Nov 10 if the government does not fix the problem then I will have to reschedule and try again next year. I did not go to Vegas last year due to breast cancer Tx but this year would be a let down if things are closed. Love Vegas. Elizabeth LaZella  Gold Bar, WA

Under usual circumstances it would most certainly have. I generally travel with a group and there is always one or two who have never been to Vegas so we make sure they see everything including Lake Meade and the Dam. I would have been very disappointed if my next trip (Nov 17th,2013) involved that type of travel. This trip is just for my husband and I to celebrate our wedding vows renewal ceremony that we were so thrilled to do with our children, grandchildren, immediate family and best friends.  JoAnn Cathcart  North Attleboro, MA

We will be arriving in Las Vegas on December 25th. The issue of closed parks will not effect our visit.We will tailor or activities to all the things that are available to do....thanks to your news letters, that list is long. Dan Ballard Manteca, CA

although the national parks are always on our to do list when we visit LV, they are not must sees & knowing that they will be available to visit in the future I would have to say that it would not affect our next visit to LV.  Richard Setter  White Rock, BC Canada

The government should shut down all the wasted money programs and then we would have a surplus, not a debt.  Coming to vegas anyway, be there next week.  Janice Hodges 

This would absolutely affect my coming to Las Vegas. Each year, I plan a trip to the area just to visit the parks in Arizona, Nevada, and Utah. The natural beauty is the draw and gaming makes it more exciting. With the parks being closed, I would choose to stay in Texas and vacation on the beach.  Marie Fischer  Houston, TX

It won't affect me but what this dictator has done affects most everyone by keeping them away from important history that Veterans have fought for. That is out and out wrong what was done. This was just done because he wants his own way. He wants to make sure that an unaffordable health plan goes through. Nancy Sexton  Port Jervis
