By staying at the Wynn, you also gain perks like free entry into the nightclubs that they host. For example, we spent a lot of time at XS. Most of our time went in the opposite of what most go to Vegas for, hotel hopping!
We are not much of the gambling type. We rounded the Strip and went from casino to casino on foot.
The sights and sounds that you experience by walking are very memorable. There is always a bar with a lot of party people enjoying themselves.
Passing the older, more historic casinos always bring back memories of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack. These are the old time tourist attractions in Las Vegas. The lights, especially at night make you feel like a kid again.
The free outdoor shows that are put on by some casinos are also well worth watching. We passed through Treasure Island's Sirens Pirate show, Mirage's famous volcano, and the Bellagio fountains. Las Vegas is a city to be enjoyed by singles, couples, and families.
Many more family friendly locations have taken the lead to entertainment as well. Circus Circus has their own indoor amusement park!! If you have not been, please visit Las Vegas!
As a result, I got my first Vegas experience and my first NASCAR experience rolled into one. We stayed at Circus Circus, a relatively inexpensive hotel/casino on the northern part of Las Vegas Boulevard ("the Strip").
We saw the marvelous fountain show at the Bellagio, as well as the live pirate show at Treasure Island. We went to the Stardust sports book and listened to the crowds cheering or booing every move in a college basketball game.
We gambled at about half a dozen casinos, including Caesar's Palace and the Luxor. On the day of the race, we took buses from the Strip to Las Vegas Motor Speedway. To get to the track, all the buses had to go through Nevis Air Base. (Most bus trips don't feature up-close-and-personal glimpses of stealth bombers.)
The race itself was incredible, from the prerace flyover by a stealth bomber to the thunderous sound of cars passing by you at nearly 190 miles per hour -- a sound that was felt as much as heard. I became a fan of both NASCAR and Vegas that week, and I would go back to either the city or the track tomorrow. Who's up for a fun weekend?
My husband and I also visited the Venetian as I wanted to visit Ca'd'Oro Jewelers to see the Wellendorff jewelry line. The Venetian is so cool inside. I told my husband that we need to stay there on our next trip!
Every time we visit Las Vegas, there is always something new to see and do. We haven't been to any shows as there usually aren't any that catch our interest. The Fremont Experience is free and interesting and there are a lot of shops and casinos located there. We expect our future Las Vegas vacations will be even better than the last!
The rooms were clean and the food was good. The best attractions in that hotel were definitely the cat house nightclub and the unbelievable show called Fantasy. The crew of the show was recently modified and they were joined by Lorena the singer. She is really a nice addition to the show.
You can hang out in the night club there or you have the alternative option to go outside your hotel and explore the city. David Copperfield the magician perform there with his magnificent tricks and illusions, I spent around 250$ to sit in the front row and besides, I got a photo with him.
There are lots of other magician shows like Chris Angel who is a clever performer but not as good or famous as David Copperfield of course. Exploring the city by bus and wandering in the hotels alone is a joy of life. Do not miss to see Bellagio and MGM hotels, they are a must see. Overall, the trip was like being to paradise.
Everything is geared towards luring you onto a fun ride for a lot of money until you realize that it wasn’t as fun as you thought and you’re out fifty bucks. Feeling a bit strip-weary, my group and I decided to spring for a couple of bus passes (about $20 for a group of 4) and took the public bus all the way down the strip to the older part of Las Vegas on Fremont Street.
The older part of Vegas embodies the classier and sophisticated Vegas that you expect after seeing movies like Ocean’s 11 or The Hangover. Fremont has cheaper food and buy-ins, but gives you the service and excitement that I expect in a place I’m losing all my money to. A smart person knows you can’t beat Vegas, but you can sure as hell have a good time losing!
