10 Random Observations From A Weekend in Las Vegas

  1. There are signs posted up around almost every bar I went to discouraging pregnant women to drink. I found this very disturbing because there must be enough pregnant ladies trying to drink to justify the signs.
  2. The view from the rooftop restaurant at The Rio is stunning.
  3. The Boyz II Men show at the Mirage was so amazing! Easily the highlight of my trip.
  4. Limos are more fun to take than taxis. Especially hot pink Hummer limos.
  5. Even though I’m an aisle girl, the window seat is worth getting for the views of the Grand Canyon coming in.
  6. Vegas is a great place to live if you want to wear a costume, stand on the street and take pictures with people all day.
  7. The air is dry… so dry. Bring your own eye drops instead of buying them there – (they are super overpriced).
  8. Speaking of overpriced… $6 for a mini bottle of water?!
  9. Next time I go, I’m going to spend more time watching shows then wandering around casinos.
  10. As much as I like playing poker, I’m pretty much too cheap to put up my own money.

What do you like and dislike about Vegas?

    Hah, Vegas is a really interesting place, but I feel like it tries to funnel all the tourists in some set directions whereas most of the interesting stuff lies outside of it. Some cool stuff, if you rent a car, can be found right outside the city, like Red Rocks Canyon and several abandoned towns from when they were doing nuclear testing out in the desert in the 50’s.

    And I totally agree about your poker comment!

  • Wow interesting… if ever I’m there for a longer period of time I’ll have to check some of that stuff out.

  • What do I dislike about Vegas? Lol, that’s a hard question. I must have been there at least a dozen time, either staying in town for an event or passing through for the night on my way elsewhere. I suppose I enjoy the fact there are quite a few places outside of Vegas that is easily accessible within a hour’s ride or two, like the Valley of the FIre State Park, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, etc… just to name a few. As for inside Vegas itself, I haven’t really found anything I like yet, well, that’s not true. I enjoy the dry country more than the humidity so that’s one thing Vegas got going for me.

  • Interesting. I grew up in Florida so the dry heat there and in LA at the moment are killers.
