Vegas: More than casinos!


If you are anything like me on my first visit to Las Vegas, you only stayed on the strip and you gambled, partied and ate at the buffets. Now, while there is nothing wrong with that itinerary, there is so much more to Vegas and the surrounding areas!

I took my 2nd trip to Vegas recently and made sure to venture out and see new and exciting things- and boy am I glad I did!

Here are a few things I suggest on your next trip to Sin City:

  1. Go inside some of the super expensive hotels and look at the beautiful decor. I went inside of the Bellagio and the artwork was beautiful and amazing!
  2. Go on Fremont Street! I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised with all of the entertainment available!
  3. Take the 45 minute drive to the Hoover Dam
  4. And then take the 3.5 hour drive to the Grand Canyon (If you don;t prefer to drive, there are shuttle bus companies you can choose from)
