Travel Tuesday

Helene in Between

In March 2008, six of us met up in Las Vegas for a four day weekend. My boyfriend (at the time) Daniel and I stayed at Stratosphere and our friends Tessa, Ronny, David, and Ryan stayed at Caesars Palace.

The first night it was just Daniel and me so we went to downtown Vegas. I would definitely recommend leaving the strip and going there one night. Totally different vibe and better deals! We drank for free for hours at Mermaids while playing penny slots. (The fancier the casino, the stingier they are with the free alcohol.)

On Sunday we met up with our crew at Bellagio for for their buffet champagne brunch. It was amazing! We stayed as late as possible (they kicked us out because the dinner brunch was starting) and drank and ate our money’s worth for sure.

That night all of us besides Daniel went dancing at Pure at Caesars Palace.

Daniel was addicted to the $3 blackjack tables at Circus Circus.

On our last full day in Vegas we ate at the Top of the World restaurant at the Stratosphere and celebrated St. Paddy’s Day that night.

We also walked up and down the strip and went into every major casino. Warning: Casinos appear closer than they are! Everything is so huge that what looks like not a very long walk actually is. My favorite was Luxor and that’s where I’d like to stay next time… I’m planning on going to Vegas again next summer. I also want to visit Hoover’s Dam and see a Cirque du Soleil show!

  1. I would love to go to Vegas with friends- I can`t get over the fact that they give you free booze! I would just drink and pretend I was going to gamble šŸ˜‰

  2. Looks like you had a blast!! I think doing Vegas with friends is the way to go! I’ve only been there with family. Didn’t get to experience much outside of the slots!
