Vegas Vacation

Exactly one month from today we will be flying to VEGAS! Dr. Hubby has a conference there. We are taking Manga Dork with us and unfortunately Lil Sis can't join us this time...sniffle.

This will be our first trip to Vegas. Our hotel is the Venetian. I want to ride a gondola..and smooch while being serenaded. Ahhh...romance.

Other things we are thinking about...Garth Brooks concert...Cris Angell's Believe...Cirque de Soleil...pirates...day trip to the Grand Canyon...Vegas Stamp store...

Oh yeah! I just found out that David Spade will be performing at our hotel while we are there. VIP seats {$175} AND you get to meet him. I have great luck with comedians...first Joel McHale on Conan while I was in the audience...and now David Spade! Not sure I will go to the show...probably above a PG rating. Maybe I can catch him on the 4 acre pool deck! Think I can get him to sing "Fat Guy In A Little Coat?" I miss Chris Farley.

Any suggestions? {Remember we don't drink or gamble}

The Luxor and the Mirage....they're so much fun!!! They've got animal shows and the Luxor has these cool Egypt rides....and of course, Treasure Island...and if you like Star Wars, the Hilton has a ride and amueusm thing and klingons and aliens walk around...my mom is a huge Trekkie so we always stayed there...

Vegas can be a lot of fun. Living in Utah and California, I've been many, many times. I would definitely see a Cirque du Soleil show.

When hubby was there on a business conference, he went to the Hoover Dam on a tour. It stopped by a chocolate factory too!

As fellow non drinker or gambler, I find I get bored in LV pretty quick. We are headed there next month for a quick stop on the way to cali, and I can't think of one thing I want to do.

Althought David Spade would be fun

We've been to Vegas many times. One thing you and Manga Dork can do during the day is just go to every hotel on the strip. Seriously they all have a theme, many have incredible shopping, The Belagio is just a beautiful thing to see - very fancy schmancy.
There is alot just to look at that will be new and different for you!!

Shows are fun. The Venetian is a fun hotel.

Le Reve!!!! Love, love, loved it! When Cher canceled on us, we saw that instead. After we saw it, I found out that my boyfriend choreographed all the ballroom dance scenes. It was amazing!!!!

Vanessa said...

My boyfriend would be Maksim from DWTS.

My favorite is the water show at the Bellagio. I love the choreographed fountains. The inside of the Bellagio is beautiful. A must see.

My husband and I don't drink or gamble and had a blast there. We went to most hotels, walked around,sat poolside, saw a few shows, went to the Hoover Dam, went to Miss M choclate factory, outlet stores, etc. We are going back next March. Hope you enjoy yourself and have a great time.

My favorite thing is to hit the Ethel M chocolate store in the airport.

Okay, and shopping. Love to hit the outlet stores. That's my kind of gambling, throwing it away in the shops.

You need to ride that roller coaster at The Stratosphere. Do you do roller coasters?
