Las Vegas

Las Vegas

Everyone should go to Las Vegas at least once in their life if they can.  Not for the casinos, necessarily – although it is a bit startling to see slot machines all around in the airport!

But it is like a fantasy land that has been built out in the middle of a big empty country.  Amazing.

Mirage Hotel, Las Vegas

I stayed at the Mirage when I was there – and their attraction was white tigers – just like any old 5 star hotel - not!  Close by Treasure Island had its regular re-enactments (think Miss Congeniality – or was it the sequel?) and at Caesar's Palace I saw young people dressed up as Romans hopping up onto slot machines to declaim – and there wasn't a smile on their face.

And it's a good jumping off point for going to the Grand Canyon as well.

It is hot so the fine mist sprays they had at pool side were a bit of a life saver.

  1. I agree.. everyone needs to go once. People love it or hate it. No middle ground I don't think!!


  2. I've been once. That was enough. But my sisters and several friends go there often!! It IS an experience!
    So - did you have fun? Are you there now?

  3. I agree with you, everyone should go at least once just to look at the Architecture of the Hotels~ My husband and I got married there almost 17 years ago:) We went back on our 15 year Anniversary~ Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines

  4. I stayed at the Treasure Island Mirage back in the 90's - a trade show for the company I worked for. Amazing city and it's grown and changed so much since I was there.

  5. I'm going there in November for my 40th!! MGM grand we have booked x
