Overview

We were in Las Vegas for a few days during the PBR(professional pullrider) finals. This was our first visit to Vegas. We were here without the kids, but would like to return with them and see some of the surrounding area like Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. There really isn't enough time to take in Vegas and the area in one visit over just a few days.Some of our time was spent at the Mandalay Bay at the PBR FanZone where we got to meet some of the riders, and we spent one evening at the finals competition. We strolled the strip and watched the volcano errupt at the Mirage and the fountains dance at the Bellagio. We got to see the gondolas at the Venetian and the roller coasters at New York ...Read More

Hotel | "Hilton Grand Vacations Las Vegas Strip"

Quote:
We really loved the Hilton Grand Vacations Las Vegas Strip. It was luxurious and the perfect resting place for us because it is a non gaming resort on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip---close enough to all of the excitement, while remaining a retreat when we wanted to rest. The resort is centered between the Stratosphere, Sahara, and Circus Circus with nearby public transportation available, allowing easy access to everything on the strip. The Deuce, double decker bus, stopped across the road near the Sahara, and there is easy access to the monorail at the Sahara. We stayed in a one bedroom condo with a full kitchen, washer/dryer,a luxurious bedroom with a king bed, a television and ...Read More

Restaurant | "Fatburgers"

Fatburgers is a nostalgic hamburger stand located on the strip close to the MGM Grand (just a little north on the same side of the strip). They are open 24 hours, which is how we came to eat there. Las Vegas strip and casinos may be awake all night, but many of the restaurants keep the same hours as equivalent restaurants in other cities, especially on weekdays. After arriving on Wednesday night, we found several restaurants closed by the time we were checked in and ready for something to eat around 10PM. Lots of fast food places were still open, but we really wanted something more than McDonalds or Subway. We found Fatburgers and, even though this is a burger joint, it ain't McDonalds. ...Read More

Attraction | "World of Coca-Cola and M&M's World "

I put these two together because their locations are side by side on the strip at Showcase Mall with an inside door that leads from one to the other. The location is close to MGM Grand on the same side of the strip. We went into M&M's world first. This is a fun place with nothing but M&M merchandise throughout the store. There are two levels with an upstairs that features a wall of M&M's of every color. The wall is ceiling to floor bins filled with M&M's divided by color. You can fill and purchase a bag of M&M's with just the colors you want. The store also has clothing and gifts, so this makes a good place for souvenirs, especially for the kids. Now on to Coca-Cola world, whi...Read More

Las Vegas Strip

Attraction | "Free (and Cheap) on the Strip"

We stayed on the north end of the strip across from the Sahara, where a roller coaster zooms by just above your head as you walk onto the property. Inside the Sahara is Nascar memorabilia and the Nascar Cafe. We took pictures in front of one of the cars. If you are into Nascar, this is a must free visit. Also on this end of the strip is the Stratosphere and Circus Circus with circus acts every half hour. It helps to mentally divide the strip into three sections(north/middle/south.) Walk from here or use the monorail for fast transportation. Use the deuce bus for slow observation of the strip. You can do each for around $5 and both stop(or in this case, begin) at the Sahara.
