Loco for Las Vegas
I’m not a gambler but I love Vegas. It’s such a crazy place. There’s so much to do and see. If your first idea of Las Vegas is gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife, you are totally right. Vegas is certainly the Entertainment Capital of the World.
Here’s some info:
- Strip, the central part of Las Vegas Boulevard, is lined with huge, themed entertainment palaces, home to performance venues, and luxury hotels. So, you can travel the world in Vegas – to Luxor (Hotel), New York (Hotel), Paris (Hotel) and the Eiffel Tower. You can take gondola rides and stay at Venetian Hotel or visit Roman Caesar's Palace and the Colosseum.
- You should also visit the old downtown Las Vegas and walk down Fremont Street, a pedestrian-only area. There are some characters there to see so have your camera/phone handy. We threw axes and a bunch of other fun, non-gambling activities.
- Believe it or not, Las Vegas hotels are rather cheap but keep in mind that you will probably spend quite a lot of money on additional services. Some things are free, though, like free booze that Vegas casinos serve to all gamblers. BTW, booze can be bought anytime in Nevada.
- Las Vegas is pretty much as safe as any other city in the US. Unless you count the Tupac incident that they still haven't solved. )-:
- When you get tired of the city, take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon which is close.
- The best months to choose for a visit to Las Vegas are March, April, and May as well as September, October, and November. Summer months are HOT!
You should check to see if the Seven Magic Mountains exhibit is still there. It’s in Jean, Nevada. If my memory serves me correctly, it took us about 45 minutes to get there in the car.
Don’t get FOMO and miss out on Vegas!
