Vegas – what to do?

24 Aug

Just in case you missed

Waking up in Vegas aka Schadenfreude



Read on dear people read on…

Now!  While in Vegas, what did we do?  Where did we go?  Be forwarned, this post is photo heavy.  So if you don’t want to look at my pictures, you are a jerkI’ll understand.

The short story is that we stayed mid strip (TWSS?)  The long story is…

Defending the Caveman, Blue Man Group, Cirque du Soliel Beatles Love, The Venetian, Caesars Palace, The Mirage, and Madame Tousseds.

Let’s start with the casinos…why not?  I’m the one running this blog, right?  Well, mainly.


The Bellagio is awesome!  It was my favorite, I’m pretty sure.  I mean Chihuly glass in the lobby?


Fresh flowers  inside a Vegas hotel/casino?



and check!  It smelled like flowers!  I was floored!  Also the Bellagio has their famous fountain display at night…


The Bellagio also plays host to Jean Phileppe Patasserie, how can a girl be mad about that?

Caesars Palace

Caesars is very opulent.  This is where Mesa Grill and the delicious buffet with all the desserts are.  Caesars also has the Forum Shops, it’s like a very expensive mall…fun to look at, but I could never afford 3/4ths of those shops.  Oh!  And the escalators at the Forum Shops curve.  I know, I know it’s the little things.

And oh yeah, they have a pool…

If you can call something like that a pool…

The Venetian

We/I spent a lot of time at the Venetian and it’s adjoining Palazzo.  This is where Leanne’s conference was, so it was pretty easy to drop in.  If you didn’t see my previous blog Get on a Gondola then you don’t know that they have gondoliers inside the Venetian!  It’s actually pretty cool.  Sitting by the canals and listening to them sing (the gondoliers not gondolas) was almost relaxing.  Another thing that is relaxing is the ceiling.

It looks like the sky, whoa.  They also paid someone a lot of money to create this masterpiece.

In between The Venetian and the Palazzo there is another place to kinda sit and chill.  There is a waterfall, which I didn’t take a photo of, and cool garden features.

Nice family photo...right?The wishing well above the waterfall

Pretty, right?  Okay, I guess that’s enough with the photos and casinos.  I’ll keep going with what shows we saw tomorrow!
