Vegas, family style

Overview

Quote:
Las Vegas is known as the City of Sin, but to me, it will always be a family vacation spot. I have the best time hanging out in Sin City with my sister, grandma, and my mom. We enjoy the great food, good shopping, and fun games. I LOVE 5-cent slots like Wheel of Fortune and Price is Right. They are soo fun, you must check 'em out. Wynn is pretty nice, so I would check that place out and if you get a chance go to the Guggenheim in the Venetian.

This place was very nice. When you first walk in there is a jelly fish tank with three different colors. The food was okay. Do not try the soba noodles. It was too bland, but I do recommend the shrimp tempura roll, the shrimp appetizer (I forgot the name), and especially the green tea creme brulee. It was the best creme brulee I have ever had.

It's a nice casino decorated in rich reds and colors. Nice sights, especially the flower gardens and the outside views. Shopping is more on the luxury, high-end stuff.
