  • Fremont Street Experience

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    We had taken the city bus to Freemont street and I guess we might have went down there too late. Most of the kiosks were closed - which was probably a blessing in disguise. Also they were doing maintenance on the lights so the middle third of the lights were out. I had been looking forward to seeing the light show since so many friends said it was...

  • Venetian Hotel - Casino

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    For $18 per person, you can enjoy a gondola ride at the Venetian Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Even though I have actually gone on the real gondola in Venice, Italy, I was excited to take my daughter and husband seeing as we were spending a night in Vegas. The inside of the Venetian Hotel and Casino is dramatic, artistic and exciting. The water way...

  • Treasure Island Hotel - Casino

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    So, I said, let's go and see the pirate show outside Treasure Island. Fair enough - along come the boats and ....goodness me, what are they wearing? I've never seen pirates looking like that. You know what, I just didn't get it - I certainly didn't like the way that the male stars were lured to their doom by the lap dancing style performers on the...

  • Caesar's Palace

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    I am trying to figure out how to explain this show. We were given tickets by our resort, so it was not something we had planned on doing. It located in the huge tent outside the casino on the patio area out front. We were seated (not comfortable seats), but suitable. We had no idea what we were in for. We did notice before we went in, that you had...

    The Circus Circus actually has live circus acts as well as an arcade that features live carnival attractions. Those too young for the casino can be entertained by the circus.

  • Lake Mead and Hoover Dam

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    After the Hoover Dam experience we got into Lake Mead, we had wanted to go on the paddle steamer ride but got there too late, you need to get there around 2pm for that. First you have to pay to get into the area, that appears standard for national parks and recreation grounds in USA. We headed for the marina for a bite to eat in the restaurant,...

    I love the fountains at Bellagio! The way the water dances with the music is mesmerizing. Make sure you can get a good spot for the show. Once people know the show is started they begin to crowd in. The shows are every 30 minutes starting at noon Saturday, Sunday and holidays, and 3:00 pm on Monday to Friday. At 7:00 pm the shows are every 15...

    On our first evening in Las Vegas we headed for the New York New York with one thing in mind, the Big Apple roller coaster. Said roller coaster is at the front of the building but we took the car there and from the parking lot we had to embark on one of those legendary Las Vegas treks from one end of the hotel to another, getting lost on the way....

  • Stratosphere

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    We had a top time at the top of the Stratosphere Tower. The one thing that I noticed was at least there was somewhere to sit down which is very rare inside a LV hotel. Mind you you have to pay to get to the top of the tower first. It was around 6pm when we got here and it was fairly quiet, no queues at all and the view is great. The rides are...

    Fun place to visit. It's a mid level casino hotel located a little too far from the actual Strip. It is connected to Excalibur and Mandalay Bay Hotels by passageway.

    Walking past Napoleon's Lounge, my friend and I stopped because we thought we recognized the man playing piano. So we had to stop in and take a closer look. The place was packed, all seats taken, what was going on? The dueling pianos! We hadn't planned to stay and were standing in the way of the other patrons. The excitement in the room was...

  • Wynn Hotel

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    While staying at the Encore, I wanted to explore the amenities the hotel had to offer. So I ventured to where the Spa is located. Decorated in an Oriental and Moroccan theme, the spa is opulent and glows in gold and silver tones. I have only been to one other spa, but this one looks absolutely gorgous. I am not surprised it was rated by Forbes as a...

  • Mandalay Bay

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    The hotel is nice and modern. You do not need to walk through the noisy casino to get in and out... Do not miss the Wine tower in Aureole restaurant. It located at the far South of the Strip, but there is a tram that runs from Mandalay Bay to Excalibur, and then if you cross over to MGM there is also another tram that runs down further.

    You pass by so many vendors asking you many questions. We stopped to talk to one and he offered us 2 tickets to Mystere for $99. That is an amazing deal.

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    You can do a variety of day trips to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas. Our favourite over the years has been a helicopter trip. You can take a coach, or a light aircraft, but a coach takes a long time and the light aircraft made us feel seriously sick. The Helicopter trip we went on took off from Vegas airport which means no lengthy coach journey...

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    Right next to the MGM there are a couple of pretty massive logo stores worth checking out. The Coca-Cola store has everything you could ask for with the Coke design. M&M World is four floors of candy and logo related shopping. Both are worth a peek, especially when you want to escape the heat. The Coke store used to sport a really cool museum,...

    This hotel looks outdated and old but it's a good place to stay if you want to go to Las Vegas on a budget. It's location on the South end of the Strip (opposite MGM & New York New York) is pretty good and walkways tie it to other hotels for convenience. It is a pretty long walk from the center of the Strip but there are shuttles, buses, a...

    We arrived in Las Vegas between Christmas and New Year at Bally's Hotel. We were happy to find that our bags had arrived ahead of us, after being lost on flight to LA, and that all our wedding clothes were still OK. We thought it would be a great idea to marry in Vegas, as we had both been married before, and this way we could have our honeymoon...

  • Madam Tussauds Wax Musuem

    Madame Tussauds wax museum is very interesting. I would never have thought that a wax figure could look so real. You can see sports stars, music stars and hollywood stars. Madame Tussauds is open all year long. They begin selling tickets at 10:00am and the last tickets are sold at 9:00pm. The general admission into the Museum are $29.95 but if...

  • Aladdin

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    Would it be because we were tired? Would it be because the mixture between Arabic and Indian look didn't work well? I don't know, but Alladin was, for us, the least appealing of all the big hotels. Anyway, it also justified the time, and the performed storm seemed real.

  • Aria Hotel - Casino

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    Very modern high class Hotel; very convenient with fair value and confortable staying. The shopping area is full of the high end shops. We were very impressed with this beautiful, luxurious Hotel. Casino is very nice and has good variety of slots and table games but the gambling was a little bit more pricy than other places.

    Do you remember the old days when coke was still sold in small glass bottles? Well, Coca cola still sells them but not at regular stores anymore. They sell them at the Las Vegas' Coca cola store. So, if you want to collect them, you must check out the Coca cola store. At the second floor of the store, they have a snack area. You can buy the coke...

    The Flamingo is not the high end hotel, it looks very old and worn but located right in the middle of the Strip and the price is unbeatable. It was the 3rd resort to open on the Strip (1946), and now days it's the oldest resort on the Strip still in operation. This Hotel has 3,626 rooms and 77,000 sq ft (7,200 m2) casino, it's garden courtyard...

    Las Vegas Things to Do

    Tucked away in the MGM is an aquarium that houses an alligator, various lizards and fish, sharks, jellyfish, a huge octopus, and a stingray touch pool. I quite enjoyed the jellyfish and the octopus (I wonder if they have a hard time keeping him in his tank). The sharks actually bored me a little--maybe I'm just at that age. :-) A very entertaining...

    Not only were the costumes and the wigs authentic, but the guitars too. They also changed the sound of the amplifiers according to what song(s) they were playing.

    In the afternoon of one of the last days we spent in Las Vegas, I talked my friend Mickey into walking from our resort to Hard Rock Cafe Hotel and Casino. It was a lengthy walk, and it was the warmest day we spent there. I feel that one of its drawbacks is its location, unless you wish to be quite a distance from the "Strip". I must say that the...

    We brought my mother-in-law to see "The King" starring Trent Carlini, and we really enjoyed the show. Trent really does evoke "Elvis" in his moves and his voice, and if you squint a little, he looks like Elvis. This is an "intimate" show - the showroom is small, and the stage is mostly bare. There is a woman who does "interpretive" dance, sometimes...

    The neon lights of the Paris Hotel is also very nice. I could not take a better picture of it because I was in a bus at night- I chose the front seat at a double decker bus. I sat at the front to be able to take most of the pictures of the neon lights of the hotel. I had a two-day bus pass so I made used of it... A couple years ago, we stayed at...
