Our Viva Las Vegas trip.
It was a 2 flight trip to Vegas and 2 flight trip back home.
We arrived in Vegas at 11.39 Vegas time. We made a previous reservation for a car rental. We were informed that the car rentals were about 1 mile away from the airport and we were to board a shuttle to pick up the car. Okay.
After we picked up the car we were off to Caesar’s Palace to check in. Okay. Simple enough….not. Not wanting valet parking we looked for a spot to park. It was almost invisible. Ha! Greg decided to pull over near the hotel entrance and park. There were “no parking” signs, but since I was in the car while he went in and the car flashers were on…..we were not parking, BUT standing. (At least that’s the way it is in NY)
Great…were are registered and once again looking for parking. Finding the area would have been much easier if cabs, buses, people were not competing. LOL Wow! We expected congestion, but it was like going to the NYS Fair with freeways inside the fair. Yikes.
We found the parking area and followed the elevator signs. Great.
The elevator took us to the casino. Not wanting to do the slots until we dropped off our luggage in our room we searched for our room. Found out we had to walk through the casino to take another elevator to the room. Okay.
After unloading our luggage we headed back to the casino. Won some …lost it. Won some..lost it. Trust me not huge amounts. Perhaps, $20.00 total for all the days.
I watched on woman on the slots. When no attendant was near she hit the “bet ” button then tapped the other buttons very fast and won many, many times. If there was an attendant around she tapped the bet button once and lost. Hmmm. Made me think..it did.
The next night was The Reba, Brooks and Dunn concert. I would say there were close to 5,000 people at the Palace Coliseum and yet there was not much of a wait. Wow! What a show. The audience was very appreciative.
We went to the Hoover Dam, too. Outstanding site to see.
There are no Jack in the Boxes here. We had to try that. Also, we hit a few buffets. One was far too expensive for the quality.
All and all traveling rookies that we are…we had a nice time. We are happy we ventured out.
