The Admiral and I did something completely different for our 25th wedding anniversary.
Instead of a vacation on a boat like we usually do, we went to Vegas for a week.
It was a wonderful and tiring trip.
There is so much to do that you get sucked into doing too much.
Bring your walking shoes... everything is soooooo farrrr. Heck, it took us 10-15 minutes to hike to the valet desk from our hotel room just to get to our car!
Highlights for the trip were:
Dinners at Nobu (at Caesars) and the Eiffel Tower Restaurant. At Nobu we got the chef's 7 course sampler meal, and it was the best meal we've had in our life. The Eiffel Tower restaurant was a close second. Our surprising meals of the week were the $12 crepe we shared at a pastry shop in The Bellagio, and the Fix restaurant at the Bellagio.
Staying at the Bellagio. Beautiful, elegant.
Fountain view room: we never got tired of watching the fountain.
Aquarium at Mandalay Bay (jelly fish exhibit shown)
Helicopter ride into the Grand Canyon
Hike into the mountains south of Red Rocks at First Creek Canyon (behind the burro).
We can't wait to go back. There was soooo muuuuuch we didn't get to do.
We saw 4 shows - Defending the Caveman, Terry Fader, Blue Man Group, and La Reve. All highly recommended.
La Reve was simply spectacular. By far the most amazing show that I've ever seen.
