Mum's 60th Birthday in Vegas

Overview

Quote:
Fremont Street was a wonderful experience and very energetic. There were artists in the center making beautiful artwork, bands playing music, you just wanted to dance to the music! The casinos were fun and we enjoyed playing the games. The food was fantastic too!

Quick Tips:

We used the coupons for several shows which were great shows. Enjoyed the Secret Garden at the Mirage and the tigers.

Best Way To Get Around:

We rented a car and found that is best for us because we could get around easy and go anywhere without waiting for buses or monorails.

Best Things Nearby:The Las Vegas StripBest Things About the Resort:The one-bedroom was clean, comfortable, and spacious. It was close to everything. Staff was helpful.

We enjoyed blackjack, craps, slots, roulette, and the thrill of winning. Also the sadness of losing. It was fun to spend time with my mum playing slots, having a drink, and enjoying time with her in Vegas.

Ronn Lucas (The Performance)

Attraction | "Ron Lucas Show"

Quote:
This is a fantastic ventriloquist show that I highly recommend. We got tickets for a free show, but you had to purchase two drinks for the show, which was approx. $18. Well worth the price, and Ron Lucas is the best performer in his class. Go see it, you won't be disappointed. Clean enough for the kids too, and funny for all.

Siegfried and Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat

Attraction | "Siegfried & Roy's Dolphin Habitat & Secret Garden"

Quote:
The large cats were beautiful and well taken care of. To see the work of Siegfried & Roy with these animals is amazing. They have helped keep these animals from near extinction. The dolphin habitat was very relaxing to see. We enjoyed watching the trainers interact with the dolphins. It is a nice place to visit if you like animals and big cats.
