A Stroll Down Vegas

There is so much to see in Vegas on the Strip. We hiked one end to the other end hoping to give our children a taste of all the different hotels and activities Vegas has to offer. It was like hiking through Disney World. We were exhausted! We started near Treasure Island. We watched the show Sirens of TI our last night in Vegas. The hotel is themed like Pirates of the Caribbean. You think at any moment you may see Johnny Depp.

Caesar's Palace and the fountain! Breath-taking. I felt like I was back in Rome.



Inside Caesar's Palace...the Forum Shops with the cool escalators that are curved. Miss Hayden was in shopping heaven. She made 2 purchases at Marc Jacobs. A practical swim cap and a netted swim bag. She will be the most stylish swimmer on her team.
We had to stop and watch the statues come to life in the Forum Shops. It is a Vegas must!
Sutton waited all day to ride the roller coaster at New York New York. He was too short. Oh, was he mad to say the least. It was going to be a long day. We even tried to mend things by playing video games at Coney Island. Sigh!


Finally, a beacon of hope...M & M World! Sutton's spirits were up. We toured the 4 story world of M & M's and watched a funny 3-D M & M movie. Hayden found rainbow socks with the toe spots in them for our neighbor Sabrina. M & M world is free and I recommend it!!!


A short walk to Paris ( you can go up in the Eiffel Tower and the Bellagio....


This is another amazing hotel. The Bellegio has a fountain show during the day and at night. Both are spectacular. It is to music. It also has a neat garden off the hotel's lobby. Frogs and Lady Bugs made of flowers, a flower life-size Ferris wheel-just a gorgeous place to visit.


This is the glass ceiling in the hotel's lobby!




Closer back to our hotel was Venice...the Venetian
I hope you enjoyed the stroll down the Vegas strip!
Come back at night for the Volcano at the Mirage and the Bellegio Fountains.
I need a nap!

It has certainly changed since I was there last. Haha (that was in the 90s)! How nice you were able to take time out like that with your family!
