Vacation Ideas in Las Vegas #9:
We would relax by the pool and get a tan during the day with free alcohol provided to us, and then at night we would go out and party in different clubs and dance the night away. Even on the nights we didn't party in clubs, it was fun and interesting just to walk down the Las Vegas strip and see all of the lights and activities going on during the night time.
We saw several shows, including Cirque du Soleil, which was fantastic. Even though we didn't have our fill of Vegas yet, we took an excursion to Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon, because they were only a couple hours away and they were amazing sights to see! I would tell everyone they need to visit the Grand Canyon once in their lifetime; picture just do not do it justice, it is absolutely breathtaking. - Dallas from Philadelphia
