Hi, my name is Becky and I am from the blog Because Chocolate Can’t Get You Pregnant. My blog is a little bit of everything. I like to cook, sewing, craft, decorate and talk about my amazing family. Storm and I are participating in a blog swap through 20 Something Bloggers.
Recently my husband and I went to Las Vegas, NV for the first time. We had the most amazing time! We arrived in Vegas on a Tuesday evening through Saturday afternoon. I think it was the perfect amount of time. We were able to enjoy ourselves during the week before the crowds all arrived on Friday. We stayed at the Excalibur over looking 4 pools.
Each day we would walk to look around the hotels & casinos. They are truly amazing! It is amazing to see all the details at each place. My favorite hotels would be the Venetian and Caesars Palace because they had blue skies painted on the ceilings.
One evening at the Excalibur we went to the Tournament of the Kings dinner show. It was an interactive medieval show with dancing girls, kings, sword fighting, fireworks, horses and jousting. They served a cornish hen, potatoes, a head of broccoli and a roll; however, they didn’t provide you with silverware. You had to eat the entire meal with your fingers! They had the audience interact throughout the entire show. We had to cheer our king on when he was jousting or sword fighting. Unfortunately our king didn’t win.
At New York, New York they serve New York style pizza, have the Statue of Liberty made out of jelly beans. MGM has an exhibit with real lions. The Bellagio Hotel has a water show every 15 minutes outside the front of the hotel. Caesars Palace has statues that move. Cosmopolitan has draped crystals hanging throughout the hotel in white & pink. There is soooo much shopping in Vegas. High end stores to little tourist shops. The shopping is out of this World! Some of the hotels have a wave pool or a moving river where you can sit on a tube down the river.
It was one of the best vacation my husband and I have taken together. We had so much fun together laughing, seeing all the hotels, a little gambling, and being together. There is something for everyone to do in Las Vegas and I can’t wait to make another trip!!!!
