Las Vegas Experience

Overview

Quote:
The last time our family visited Las Vegas was 7 years ago. Aside from the expected "adult town" theme of this city, it still had plenty of fun stuff geared for families with children that didn't cost an arm and a leg. Not so much anymore, unless you want to count Circus Circus with the Adventurdome (indoor amusement park... or so for an all-day pass) and a few other minor activities.Quick Tips: Here are a few changes...MGM removed the theme park that used to be located next to their hotel, the city now charges for the monorail (not reasonable for such a short ride either), and the free pirate show is now adult oriented. Seriously, what used to be a fun outdoor show for families with pirates ...Read More

Hilton Grand Vacations-Las Vegas Convention Center

Hotel | "Hilton Grand Vacations Club at the Las Vegas Hilton"

I can only recommend this timeshare to people who love to party. We own timeshare and have traded our week to stay at the Flamingo a few times in the past.

Quark's Bar & Restaurant

Their pizzas are even shaped like triangular shields. The decor is awesome. The cafe itself is best described in their website www.startrek.com, "Sit in the midst of a gigantic starfield, with lifesize spacecraft hovering above, while true-to-space details are everywhere, including a plasma plate wall." Even though it is moderately priced, I found it to be a bit pricey for being basic fare. Customers pa...Read More
