Viva Las Vegas! Part 1

Welcome to Las Vegas!
I know, what happens here, stays here, but this was my first trip and I have to share- it is such an awesome city!
We took off from LA at 9:30pm, and made our way to the downtown area- which is where all the casino's built in the early years are- beginning with The Golden Nugget.
You are looking at the pool, which has a 200,000 gallon shark tank in the center- with a WATER SLIDE that goes though the tank!

It has 300 animals in the tank- including sandtiger sharks, brown sharks, nurse sharks...

What an incredible introduction to Las Vegas!

I played $1 at a penny slot machine- and won once- (won ten cents as you can see) but lost it all- stopped at a penny and cashed out.

The we went to Binion's- there's a crazy story about the owner and he was murdered possibly by the girlfriend and police think it was her because she knows where he buried his silver in the desert....

Tell you one thing- they have good salad- I really enjoyed dinner there!

Fremont is another casino in this area- then we took a cab to the Vegas Strip

Planet Hollywood

I love this hotel- Paris, the Venetian

The Bellagio and Ceasar's Palace (where Celine Dion has her show)

Cirque du Soleil's "O"
There are these automated long sidewalks that take you down to the Bellagio- and this is the entrance below

Honestly, it is the most beautiful hotel I have ever seen

The ceiling when you walk in is glass flower's- pictures don't do it justice


Keep reading- there is a whole other post!
(I couldn't fit it into one)
