Traveling to: Las Vegas

Good Morning!

 

Is anyone else counting down the days till Christmas!?! I feel like such a big kid but I can’t say I’m never not excited for Christmas!  It’s such a fun and awesome holiday and every year around this time I feel like the jitters start to get to me.  Last night I started wrapping Christmas presents and that’s when it all hit that this week is it!  Luckily, I finished all my Christmas shopping last week so this week is all about wrapping.

As many of you know I’ve been MIA because I took a trip out to Las Vegas! I went for two reasons 1. to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday and 2. to watch the Las Vegas bowl game that the Cougars were in.  Sadly, we lost the game but that didn’t mean our spirits were down I mean IT’S VEGAS!!

We stayed at the Stratosphere on the strip and the hotel was awesome! It wasn’t as close to the strip as we wanted it be but it was still on the strip and close enough to other things that we were interested in! (And I mean there is always Uber, Lyft, and Taxis so…) Of course, it’s a casino so that’s the first thing you see when you walk in the door but it offers so much even for families!  It has an arcade room upstairs for kids and they have three different thrill rides you can choose from!

Of course, for those of age they have the casino and bar downstairs and if you want to see an amazing view of the strip you must check out their 107 Lounge!  You get one of the best views in Vegas! We were treated to some delicious drinks and appetizers (you must go for their happy hour SO GOOD!) The drinks, the food, and the view were absolutely amazing!  It was very romantic and they even had a live DJ! Put this place on your must lists when you visit!

Later we checked out the strip and it was so beautiful.  Literally every casino has their own little twist and was absolutely gorgeous.  They have something for everyone and again with it being Vegas everything stays open so there isn’t a real need to rush.  We went to nightclubs, so many casinos, did a lot of touristy sight-seeing (MUST SEE THE FOUNTAINS AT BELLAGIO!).  I mean anything you can think of we did it! One place that was so yummy that everyone must go to is Serendipity 3.  I mean the Frozen Hot Chocolate speaks for itself! It’s so yummy and they have an adult version if you are wanting to go down that route. 🙂 And finally the shopping.  Guys! It’s kind of overwhelming with all the stores but I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it completely.  I felt like Louis Vuitton was on every corner like a CVS would be (haha!).  It was so beautiful and the shops everywhere were amazing.  Definitely check out the Canal Shops, all the shops in the casinos, and of course the Fashion Show mall! We had such a great time and I can’t wait to go back!  I hope you guys enjoyed and I would love to hear what were some of the things that you did when you went up to Vegas!

XOXO,

 

Silvia M.

Thank you to the Stratosphere &  107 Sky Lounge for providing us with their hospitality and drinks.  As always opinions are my own.

    The last time we were in Vegas was in September for the Labor Day weekend. It’s quite expensive to stay within The Strip area, so we booked a hotel in Henderson, which is not a long drive from there. Unlike most people traveling to Vegas, though, we went there to see nature. We went to the Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire State Park. 🙂

    I love Vegas so much! I have been once a year for the past 3 years. I was going to go next year for my bachelorette but my sister won’t be 21 yet and she is my MOH so I might have to skip out on Vegas this year. =( Serendipity is my favorite word. So it is also my favorite movie and it also happens to be the name of the place that I found my wedding dress. So…I love going to Serendipity 3 when I am in NYC and Vegas. Looks like y’all had a great time despite the loss.

    Reading this brought back some great memories! We went to Vegas 3 years ago and it was the most amazing trip. We stayed at Mandalay Bay and it was such a gorgeous hotel. We shopped til we dropped, ate at some amazing restaurants and saw some brilliant shows! The shows were the highlight for me…especially Michael Jackson One at Mandalay Bay and Penn and Teller at Rio All Suites. We will definitely be going back!

    I went to Vegas a few times as a kid and loved all the fun shows there! A few months ago I went for the first time as an adult and even though I don’t drink, gamble, or club, I still had a blast there with my friends. There’s just so much to see and do and eat lol.

    Vegas is an amazing place. My parents took my brother and I there for family vacation when I was a teenager. We had a fantastic time. I still haven’t made it back now that I’m an adult. Soon though.
