Las Vegas is America's No. 1 vacation destination for Thanksgiving, according to Triple A. One reason is because the word got out I am NOT cooking, only eating.

The Nevada Department of Transportation estimates 318,000 people will show up in Sin City starting tomorrow.  The state estimates 60 percent of 'em will be driving in.  So watch out for those lost out-of-towners.

Why Vegas? The weather will be beautiful in the high 60s. Each hotel buffet is gearing up for a feast.  One year we didn't cook and ate at the Bellagio buffet. OMG. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority is betting those hungry tourists will spend $201.1 million on food, hotels and gaming from Thursday until Sunday. Isn't that the GNP of some countries?

And then there are the sports books. There are football games this weekend, right? Watching them at sports books is really fun because people behave so badly when their teams lose. 

Here is the list of the top five Thanksgiving destinations:

  1. Las Vegas

  2. San Francisco

  3. San Diego

  4. Orlando

  5. New York

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. We in Las Vegas have a lot to be thankful for.
