Talking about the “World Food Championships” reminded me of all the good Vegas moments we had several months ago. There are many great places to see around the world but Vegas is one-of-a-kind. The ways it’s depicted on TV and in movies, believe it. It really is like that! If anyone tells you he or she was bored in Vegas, run away as fast and as far as you can. There’s so much to do. As we mentioned in the last post, Vegas has great foodie events. We attended one of them and that was a definite highlight of our entire trip. Outside of that, we got into the usual, never-ending activities and had a ball! Even though the saying goes “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas” we brought back some moments to share….shhh don’t tell anyone ;-).
There’s a casino in almost every hotel. Ebony took a shot at it. She won a little (the trick is quitting while you’re ahead ;-)).
Day parties are one of the highlights during the season the pools are open. Catch a ball, catch a tan, you can even catch a man lol. Here, you have great lighting to get a good look at him…food for thought.
Speaking of food, there are endless options of finding good eats in LV. We had the chance to get a taste of several different restaurants’ cuisine, in one venue: Vegas Uncork’d. This is an experience worth another trip back all by itself. My sweet tooth was well beyond satisfied.
See how long you can last riding the mechanical bull. That was the beginning. Jeta lasted for a good while. I’ll leave it at that.
There are soooo many shows you can check out. Any kind you can think of from music to comedy to acrobats and plenty more. If you have the patience to sit through a sales presentation, which are offered by the hundreds, you can score free tickets. We used our freebies to go to “Absinthe”, which was suggested to us by a Vegas local. Survey says: bing, winner!
Shopping might be a close second to gambling for reasons people visit Vegas. Though the hotels have plenty of shops, you may want to stray from the norm and go somewhere different. Thanks to a couple of our blogger friends, Christie Moeller and Laura Coronado, that’s what we were able to do. “The Gypsy Den”, a vintage shop, is a hidden Vegas gem that probably only locals know. We bought some accessories and clothes that we’re sure could only be found at a hip place like this.
The list can go on and on, but eventually we left so that’s all we can share…. until we go back
