It’s been three years since I’ve been to Las Vegas, so I guess you could say right now I’m on the wagon. But every time I see a movie like the Hangover or an ad for the town of glitzy showgirls and neon lights, I feel its gravitational pull just a little bit. It may just be time for another visit!
The thing is…. Vegas tends to bring out the crazy in just about anyone. Normally, I’m a very fiscally responsible person. I go to bed at a decent hour. I don’t usually wear sequins in my normal life. But take me out of Florida or my normal travel sphere and plonk me in the middle of the desert and I am ready to party ’til the break of dawn, y’all. Throwing money around like an NBA player on leave. It’s not healthy.
Surprisingly there are things to do in Vegas other than play poker... like blackjack. Craps. And the old faithful slots, which somehow never bring money my way but are usually big boons to my grandparents.
Aside from gambling though, there are world class shows, musicals and famous entertainers from yesteryear in residence at all the large resorts. Of course, there are 100000 iterations of Cirque de Soleil, none of which I’ve ever seen, that are top of the list for my return visit.
And for the traveler in me, of course I want to check out every hotel there is. On past trips, I’ve stayed at the Wynn, Luxor, Tropicana and the not-so-fabulous Circus Circus, but I’m keen to check out the Bellagio, the new Trump and the Aria on the next go. What’s your favorite place to stay in Las Vegas?
