Las Vegas: part 6 - the rest of our trip.

22.5.12


So you have seen the hen night, the wedding, my Instagram photos, our helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon and you've heard all about our hotel but what else did we get up to? Loads!

We visited most of the hotels and had a nosy inside, we went to the Shark Reef inside the Mandalay Bay, saw the volcano show outside the Mirage hotel and the pirate ship show outside Treasure Island. We watched the fountains outside the Bellagio a million times, day and night.


We decided that apart from the Bellagio our favourite hotels were New York New York and Paris, and proceeded to take hundreds of photos of them throughout our trip.

We visited the flamingos at the, erm, Flamingo hotel!

A big group of us went to see Penn and Teller and had drinks on the rooftop of the Rio hotel to take in the views.

On our last evening we went to the top of the Stratosphere hotel (just the two of us) and ate dinner at the Top of the World restaurant which slowly rotates round to give amazing views of Vegas, oh and a few bungee jumpers! After we ate we went up to the viewing platform and laughed at the people putting themselves through the horror of the rides up there. I'm a fan of rides and heights don't really bother me but there's just something about being thrown off the side of a tall building....


Luckily between all of the sightseeing we had a cheeky couple of afternoons by the pool at the Bellagio and soaked up some sun (there was plenty of it to go round.. scorchio!)

We did a little bit of gambling but mainly on the roulette tables and the machines. We were never going to walk away millionaires with our sensible gambling but it was fun to have a go and get into the Vegas spirit! Plus free drinks while you're playing always goes down well!

I was in my element especially at the Forum Shops inside Caesar's Palace surrounded by Victoria's Secret Pink, Juicy Couture, a MAC Pro shop, an Ugg shop, and a whole host of other places. I bought a few things including this scarf from Juicy which I adore.


We tried to squeeze in as much sightseeing, shopping, sunbathing and shows as we could and at the end of the trip we were happy with the amount we managed to fit into 1 week. Our feet were weary and oh boy it was hot, but it was all brilliant.

We had such a great time and we came home with some good memories plus a few extra pounds. I blame Cheesecake Factory!

Viva Las Vegas!

  2. I went on the rides at the top of the Strat the first time I went to Vegas - absolutely terrifying so it's no wonder I didn't do them again this time around! I didn't know there was that restaurant though - sounds fab, would have loved to have eaten there xx

  8. Ah this brought back so many memories of my trip there, we stayed at the New York New York and it's wonderful isn't it?! Pizza at 4am, yes please.
    The Stratosphere rides are unbelievably scary, but the views are something else.
    I still have the fountain display video on my phone, watched it about a million times whilst we were there.
