The Las Vegas Strip

A July 2003 trip to Las Vegas by floridaorange

Quote: It was wonderful, located in between the Aladdin and the MGM. We could walk everywhere. The rooms were very nice, and the personnel were extremely helpful and pleasant.

The Las Vegas Strip


We made friends with a couple from Canada while we were riding from the airport to the Carriage House. We rented a car and took a couple of side trips with them. That was a lot of fun. Quick Tips: The Carriage House has a shuttle that will take you to Harrahs and then pick you up there later in the evening. There are about four different departure times. This was really nice when it was so hot!Best Way To Get Around: One of the best things about the Carriage House is that it is located on the strip. It takes only a few minutes to walk to the MGM or the Alladin. From either of these hotels you can walk along the entire strip, stopping to gamble, eat, or just enjoy the scenery.

Top of the World Restaurant

Restaurant | "Top of the World Restaurant and Lounge"

We had met a couple from Canada that was staying at our hotel. All four of us decided to go somewhere exciting for dinner one night. The Top of the World was the perfect place. We had a table at the windows. As the restaurant turned we were able to see the sunset and the lights of Las Vegas getting brighter and brighter with each revolution the restaurant made. The food was marvelous and the service was wonderful. It was worth every penny!!

First we were picked up in a luxury limo and taken to the helicopter. The helicopter ride was about 45 minutes over to the Grand Canyon. It was a beautiful flight. We were able to see Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, The Colorado River, and the Grand Canyon. Pictures do not do it justice, you have to see it in person to really get it into perspective.

landed in the Grand Canyon and boarded a pontoon boat for a quick lunch and cruise down the Colorado. We returned to Las Vegas, here we took a quick flight over the strip. It was not dark so we could not take advantage of the bright lights of the strip, but it was still a great trip.
