Las Vegas: loved it!

I had a wonderful few days in Vegas, but I have to admit...that was enough. For now, anyway. I arrived at almost midnight on a Tuesday and left early on that Saturday. Mid-week is definitely the time for me because the smoke and crowds grew steadily as we got closer to the weekend. I'm not a big fan of either.

We spent one day driving the roundabout way to the Valley of Fire and the other days exploring the hotels, sights, and casinos. Lots of fun sites and people!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Always something to do...and something new to see!
  • Cons:Lots of smoke, over-priced food, crowds.
  • In a nutshell:Fun in small doses!

    Your photos are amazing, but several of the Valley of Fire ones could be better in a travelogue since there aren't any comments with them.

    I enjoyed reading the Las Vegas pages, game me some good ideas for our trip to LV this Summer, especially the drives outside of the city.

    I am sorry that you did not share those pool-side photos. Did you discover the tram from Bally's to MGM Grand? Nice pages. Enjoyed.

    Congratulations, $84 is more than I ever won while living here :) You may be the only Newyorker who thinks NYNY is cute. Striking pictures of the Valley of Fire.

    Very useful info and great pics, thanks for showing other cool and (at least to me) unknown aspects about Vegas :)
