We went to Las Vegas for the second time this year this weekend. Yes, I didn’t really like it there last time and I still don’t like it, but we had concert tickets so we decided to go for two nights. We also had some friends over from Germany last week who wanted to visit Vegas, so we all decided to go together. I left work early on Friday so we could get to Vegas at a reasonable time and not in the middle of the night. We arrived in Vegas at around 9pm and all decided to immediately go out and not take little naps. We got settled in our hotel rooms and hit the Strip as soon as possible. We stayed at the Hilton Hotel, which is located right behind the Planet Hollywood. We had a beautiful view of the Bellagio Fountain from our room, but one of the first things we did was to actually watch the Fountain from up close.
Our friends actually aren’t the biggest Vegas fans as well, so the whole weekend long we did pretty mellow things like walking around instead of gambling, drinking or partying. I probably don’t have too many good tips for Vegas for you after that trip. The only thing I can say is that the Bellagio Buffet is pretty amazing (we went twice) and that they just opened a new Haunted House like attraction called “Goretorium”, which we will definitely check out next time we go to Vegas.
On Sunday we drove to the Arizona border to see the Hoover Dam. We did that when we visited Vegas in April and suggested it to our friends. If you are in Vegas, you should definitely make this 60 mile trip to the Dam. It is an amazing sight that doesn’t get boring the second time around at all! After visiting Vegas for the second time I have to say that I kind of understand what people like about it, but also it is just not for me!
