Las Vegas has changed a lot over the years that we have been visiting. From wide open spaces, and manicured lawns between hotels and casinos, to not a single inch of spare space for miles. We used to gamble with coins in the slot machines, but now tickets are the only currency. I have a box of keepsakes at home with $1 coins from each of the old casinos on the strip, some of which are not there anymore. One day I will frame them all as a reminder of a day gone by.
This trip, our 5th or 6th, John and I were able to spend two days at Caesar’s Palace, and another two days at Treasure Island. Treasure Island is our favorite by far because of it’s smaller size, and ease of getting in and out. We were able to see Beatle’s Love Cirque du Soleil at the Mirage, eat at the Craving’s buffet at the Mirage, and the Bacchanal buffet at Caesar’s Palace. My tip for you is to go to the Half Price Show Tickets kiosk’s around the strip and take advantage of the food and show deals. You get buffet discounts, tickets to just about any show at a HUGE discount, and passes to attractions such as the High Roller observation wheel. Click on the links above for more information!
If you are on the move as much as we are I highly recommend wearing super comfortable tennis shoes versus sandals. Trust me, your feet will thank me! Also, bring hand sanitizer so you do not end up with the crud for the last day of your trip like we did. Another lesson learned!
My Love and I took tons of selfies, and had a ball wandering around both day and night. One of my favorite nights was at the RIo hotel and casino where we listened to the cover band, drank, and danced for hours with our friends. Go to the first floor area under the Voodoo Lounge, and hang out there.
If you are thinking about going to Las Vegas I love April. Having been there in September, and February as well I speak from experience. The weather is amazing! Not too cold, not to hot, just the right amount of perfect to make April my Vegas go-to month from now on!
Lastly, download the Uber app, and use it. It link’s to Paypal, and is super affordable compared to taxi’s and shuttles. Have any questions? Let me know!
Now, on to our next adventure…………………
