We went to Las Vegas for Spring Break. It was a great trip and really fun even though I was getting over the flu. We didn't actually gamble in "Lost Wages" but we definitely spent a lot of money. Bottles of water were like $3.00 everywhere we went.
We stayed at the Rio. On Thursday, our plane left Phoenix around 4:00 p.m. so we didn't get to our hotel until close to 6:00. We decided to relax and not go out that night because we were so tired. Both of us were really hungry so we ate at the cheapest restaurant we could find in our hotel. About $12.oo/person. Not too shabby. I had the BEST BLT with avocado and Michael had a yummy mushroom burger.
The Rio only has suites for rooms. We got lucky enough to have a corner room--2 of the 4 walls were windows! This is the view from our bed. We LOVED our room and enjoyed looking out on The Strip at night.
We were on the 15th floor and our room was at the very end of this HUGE HALL:
Needless to say, we did plenty of walking on our trip. Luckily, the Rio has a FREE shuttle that took us to the strip. On Friday we were the only ones on our shuttle. I guess nobody was out and about at 10:00 a.m. like us. We wanted to see the sights!
Once we got to The Strip this is what we saw on the way to Caesar's Palace:
The fountains in front of the Venetian
The Eiffel Tower in front of Paris
We finally made it to Caesar's Palace and this is what we saw inside:
The Trojan Horse (F.A.O. Schwartz Toy Store)
There are toys inside of the horse!
There is a HUGE fish aquarium with some cool fish, but we couldn't get any good pictures, see:
Next, we went to the free show there in the mall. It was really funny. There were animatronic robot people like Pirates of the Caribbean. It was definitely a "free show" if you know what I mean. CHEESECAKE FACTORY!!!!!!!
I'm not posting any more pictures of the show because I am so bored just thinking about it.
NEXT! We decided to head over to the Venetian to see if we could get tickets to Blue Man Group. We walked around the Venetian and the Palazzo for HOURS before our show started. We were EXHAUSTED by the end of the night, but this is what we saw:
Wax Blue Men
The Living Garden
FINALLY we got to the show!
