I somehow have written this blog for over a year and a half and never shared anything about my trip to Las Vegas. I think I mentioned that it wasn’t exactly somewhere that I connected with, but I can say that I am very happy that I went. The happy part stemmed from the fact that I got to meet many of my blogging friends that I’ve made through Weddingbee.com (for those of you who don’t know, I started blogging by blogging about my wedding. Check the tab above). It was wonderful to meet so many of these ladies from across the country in person. Links to their blogs are in my Blog Love section.
For my first time in Sin City (as it’s called), I just wanted to see the casinos. I’m not a gambler, and I wasn’t interested in spending a ton of money that weekend. “Over the top” is really all you can say about the Las Vegas Strip of major hotels and casinos. To me, the casinos are attractions themselves. Here’s a run down of what I saw in photo essay form:
The Paris Hotel & Casino. Still sad I missed Manilow. Okay, I’m not.
The fountain show at the Bellagio. Lovely! I got the Ocean’s Eleven feeling. Unfortunately, neither Matt Damon nor George Clooney were with me.
A flower show inside the Bellagio
Outside of Treasure Island (Do you see me?)
The Luxor. This casino hotel blew me away.
A replica Brooklyn Bridge outside of New York, New York. They did a pretty good job. The real one is definitely better.
The replica Statue of Liberty at New York, New York
I took no food pictures!! I wasn’t blogging about food then anyway. I went mostly to buffets and hats off to the buffet at the Wynn, which was beyond ridiculous. Imagine unlimited king crab legs and more dessert than you could stomach.
I think the next time I go to Las Vegas, I’d like a totally super luxurious 36 hours of spas, great food and a show or two. Now I just need someone to pay for it.
Have you been to Las Vegas? Do you have a favorite casino hotel? What’s your favorite thing to do in Las Vegas that doesn’t involve gambling?
