Vegas!

Overview

There is just so much to do and see in Vegas that you have to go for several days. I suggest visiting all of the hotels. It doesn't cost anything and each one is different. It's easy to get lost once inside though, that's how they get you to gamble. Quick Tips: I suggest you wait to buy show tickets. Near MGM, there is a big Coke bottle with 1/2 price show tickets for the same day. As long as you are flexible you can save a lot of money.You should make note of all the free shows and the times. It is a lot of walking around to see them all, but you can't beat FREE!Stick to gambling at only a few resorts and get the rewards card. By focusing your spending in one spot, your point...Read More

StratosphereAtmosphere: The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere. It is comfortable and the employees are pleasant. It took a while for the cocktail waitress to come around, but after I tipped for the first drink, she kept coming back. There are a few bars there providing entertainment and a shopping area on the second floor. The excitement of this hotel is at the top of the tower. They have three different rides up top for the thrill seeker. I did not try the rides, but they looked really scary!Rooms: The rooms were standard in their size and look. It was kept clean. The only downside to my room was the noise. Every 2 minutes or so, I would hear a roller coaster sound as if it wer...Read More

Roxy's

Restaurant

Roxy’s Diner was a '50s style diner with basic American sandwiches and burger type dishes. It is an inexpensive place to catch a meal. The atmosphere was cute. It had a DJ playing oldie music and occasionally would have a waitress singing live as they dance around the restaurant. The food was good and it was just a pleasant place to go to get away from all the gambling. I ate there twice while staying at the Stratosphere. I recommend this place if you have kids or are young at heart and like rock-n-roll.

I believe that reservations are required. I suggest dressing up for this dinner because it is truly a night you will never forget. The restaurant sits atop the tower and revolves with floor to ceiling windows so that you see the breathtaking view while dining. You can sit in either a booth or at a table. The tables are closest to the windows, so if you’re in a booth, you might have to look through other people to see some of the view depending on how crowded it is. The booth sits on a higher platform, so the view is not completely obstructed.While you wait for your dinner, a photographer comes around to take your picture. They’ll develop the pictures and put it in a tri-fold type frame by the ...Read More

Bellagio Fountains

Attraction

I did not stay at the Bellagio because it is very expensive. Even though I was not a staying guest, I took a tour of the hotel lobbies and the grounds. This is a must see while in Vegas. It is a gorgeous hotel. The best part is the fountains out front. It’s best to see it at night and you should stay for more than one show. The fountains project water to the tune of the music so it can be slow or fast and have different patters as it flows nicely with the song. The reason I say to stay for more than one show is because they play different songs. You will not believe the size of this fountain until you see it for yourself. It seriously looks like a lake in front of this massive hotel. Ev...Read More
