We traveled to The Vegas a few weeks ago for Joe’s 30th birthday! We prepared for this adventure by reading novels such as, “Las Vegas for Dummies,” “Learning from Vegas,” “101 Things to do in Vegas without Gambling” and “Las Vegas The Untold Stories.” Unfortunately, we did not learn much from them.
We succumbed to the sun, slot machines, mojitos, nightlife, and pools. Everything these novels told us to stay away from.
We spent each day by a pool, including Aria’s Liquid, The Palms’ Ditch Fridays, Caesars’ Venus, and Mandalay Bay’s Bare. I will warn thee, some of these pools were more European than others (hint: boobs!).
It was impossible to not drink at least 4 Red Bulls after each day by the pool to stay awake for the night time (I’ll tell you a secret, one night I fell asleep in my Filet Mignon).
The Vegas I experienced this time around was a much different world than the one I saw when I was with my Mom at 17 years old.
Next time, we will limit our Vegas vacation to 2 days long, if that.
