Viva Las Vegas

 Okay third post today but I wanted to tell you guys about our upcoming travel plans. So far this year,  Johnny and I have been to Destin, Atlanta (both small weekend getaways) and now Vegas this summer. I know, I know, it will be deathly hot but, I’m still very excited!

So we will be staying at the newly renovated Tropicana Hotel. Based on the reviews I’ve seen, it’s an older hotel with a multi-million dollar renovation just this year. So prices were in essence lowered to drive traffic to the hotel. Don’t you just love the picture of the pool?

Let me tell you a little about plans. We plan on visiting EVERY free attraction you can think of; including: the Bellagio Fountains and Conservatory, the Las Vegas Sign, the Silvertron Aquarium, the Lion Habitat at MGM Grand, the Mirage Volcano, Flamingo Wildlife Habitat and the Circus @ Circus Circus. Restaurants we are considering include: Raffles Cafe at the Tropicana, BB Kings, Harley Davidson Cafe, and Pampas Churrascaria. For those of you who have been to Vegas, feel free to make suggestions regarding what we should do and where we should eat, gamble, and party! I’m also interested in information on travel on the strip, safety, etc.

The picture below is supposed to be representative of our hotel room. Like some hotels it could be completely different. Once we get there, I’ll post the REAL pictures and constant updates on our venture.

    Hey Nel, you know I am an expert, well not really, but I go to Vegas at least twice a year for work travel. The Jabawakeez show at the Mirage is a must see! I can do my best to get you guys free tickets, I know their promoter.

    Also if you go to Flamingo in front of the sidewalk enterance to the casino, there is a booth which gives you free tickets to shows, you just have to sit through an hour demo on something like house renovations, time shares, etc. No money down, just sit through the boring demo. Love ya
