Fabulous Las Vegas

I recently went to Las Vegas and what a fabulous place to be.  We spent three days and four nights and stayed where the action is, right on the Strip.  My last visit was ten years ago and many positive changes have happened since then.  They've built new hotels like Aria, the Cosmopolitan, and the Palazzo Hotel.  And two years ago The High Roller was built.  The biggest Ferris Wheel in the world at 550 feet, now stands proud behind the hotels on the Strip.  I never thought I'd return to Vegas but if they build it I will come and I couldn't resist checking it out again.  The food scene alone was worth the trip with new additions being Shake Shack, Pink's Hot Dogs, Sprinkles Cupcakes, and celebrity chef restaurants everywhere you look.  We just walked around for three days and looked at everything.  We ate tons of foods and did some day drinking.  We even took a spin on the High Roller and got a view we'll never forget.  We saw the iconic fountain show at the Bellagio and walked around Crystals Mall.  It was a fun time had by all and I feel grateful to get to experience Vegas in all its glory.

The High Roller, taken from the Promenade- a long strip of restaurants and shops leading to the wheel.  

A view from the top- the High Roller ride takes thirty minutes and each compartment holds forty people.  We lucked out and got our own.  What a blast and super memorable.  The 360 degrees views didn't stop and we enjoyed looking at all the hotels below us.  The daytime rides are less busy but the views at night would be incredible, too.

The Miracle Mile shops at Planet Hollywood has over 200 stores.  

You can't visit Las Vegas without seeing the fountain show at the Bellagio.

These water sculpture's inside Crystals were fun, too.  





Nothing beats hanging by the pool on the Vegas Strip.  This is Planet Hollywood's pool. 


The Venetian Hotel.


The Venetian has many things to look at.  You'll feel like you're in Italy for sure.
