It was an absolute blast. And this is how last minute it was... we booked our flights on Saturday (yep for the big V-day we hung out on the computer finding the best deals!), and we left Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. and arrived at 9:45 a.m.!!! We couldn't check in until 3:00 so we left our bags at the good ole Excalibur and went off site seeing. This was my first time being in Vegas and I was so excited! We walked from the hotel clear down to Treasure Island and back, not to mention we went through all of the hotels to see all of their amazing attractions. I bet we walked 4 miles that afternoon and probably 8 miles total! (my feet hate me right now!) We had a great time - - - I recommend to everyone taking a vacation where there is absolutely no schedule involved!
Seeing the sites (the Wynn was amazing!)
I was awe struck with all of the magnificent structures and detail that went in to each of the hotels. My favorite is the Venetian. I loved walking through there and feeling like I was on the streets of France or Italy (which ever its supposed to be!) I got my picture with one of the human statues. He scared the crap out of me. We were walking along talking, laughing, not paying any attention - - I glance over at this amazing white statue that looked so real. I thought nothing of it so I kept going, but then his eyes caught mine and I screamed a little and jumped! He was amuzed and so was I so for a buck he let me stand with him for a pic. Then there were these tree ladies. They were amazing! I took a little video of them. Watch it, they were so graceful in their movements, it was hard to believe they were on stilts. I guarantee I couldn't move like that 5 extra feet in the air!
Inside the Venetian
To condense our trip for everyone we got to witness a great marriage to a very happy couple at "A Special Memory wedding chapel", see the water show at the Bellagio, the volcano at the Mirage, the light show on Freemont Street, eat the best chili cheese fries ever :), wander through each hotel and gawk at everything! It was so much fun, and a much needed vacation for the both of us!
The wedding - - Chase and I took a taxi there, but didn't think about how we would be getting back to the main strip. So we walked through scary "old Vegas" in the rain! It was fun!
"Old Vegas" Freemont Street - - We love it there!
I LOVE LAS VEGAS!!
