I am no longer a Las Vegas Virgin. It was definitely a place on the mental bucket list to visit.
This place is awesome!
Our hotel was amazing, we stayed at the Palazzo. This was the first 5 star and largest hotel I have ever stayed in. Our room was also large at 700 sq2 feet, on the 42nd floor with a great view. It was clean and I was able to confirm with the our room maid that the room was bedbug free. But of course I stripped the bed, threw up the mattress, moved the bed away from the wall and checked everywhere with my flashlight that I brought just for this specific purpose.
The best value for great quality food was at 800 degrees pizza. I also loved this place because it had an outside patio right on the strip, it was a great atmosphere.
I would also try Buddy’s Bakery just to say been there, done that.
Wasn’t expecting to…..
To go to minus5 degree bar being we were there to get some warmth and all but I just had to see inside and those damn white fur coats got me. I was so cold we didn’t even stay for a drink. It was a quick in and out. BTW the white fur coats are the upgraded package we got some brown ugly things.
Also note, we went to the bar first and she gave us a coupon for 800 degree pizza 2 for 1 and 800 degrees pizza gave us a coupon for buy one get one for minus 5 degrees.
Enjoy Madame T wax musuem. I wasn’t interested at all but hubs wanted to go so I did. I was pleasantly surprised and down right freaked out when I saw Sandra Bullock standing in the middle of the floor she looked so real. I hammed it up with all the wax celebs and send my kids a pic of myself with wax Britney Spears. They freaked out a bit cause they thought I got to meet her for real. LOL
That brings me to BRITNEY SPEARS!
I was super excited about this and wasn’t going to let any bad review ruin my night and just to make sure I ordered a double rum in a keepsake Britney Cup to get the party started. It was super entertaining watching people come into the theatre in their shoes and dresses. Wholly heels and sparkles! Loved it! I didn’t take my eyes off her the whole time and danced just about every song and when she changed costumes I ran to the bathroom ( damn double rum). I think she may have actually sang 2 songs. At times she was on fire with the dancing and it was young Britney. There were a few times I noticed that awkwardness. BUT GOD she is not 20 anymore give the girl a break people. I loved it and it all feels like a dream. If you go expecting to see a concert you will be disappointed, it is a show not a concert. A Britney Show!
What I loved…
The weather, the atmosphere, the lights, the excitement
What I didn’t love
The four hour time change caused me to wake up at 4am and be ready for bed at 7pm, all the shopping in the hotels was pretty high end fun to look at but out of my budget. The only purchase I made was a coach purse.
The shows are pricey.
I’d love to go with the gals or a group of people
Take more rest stops or a rest day
Budget for more shows
Maybe stay at Ceasar’s Palace ( this was another really nice hotel)
Wear comfortable sneakers and comfortable clothes to walking during the day
VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!!!
