"Disneyland for grown-ups," my friend said when we arrived. That pretty much sums up the Las Vegas experience. This is a city of excess. Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in a casino? Why have a regular rollercoaster when you can have one on a roof?Before I arrived I was a bit wary of the whole 'Vegas' thing. I imagined lots of glitz and gambling, with a simultaneously seedier side. Well this all definitely does exist, and it's definitely not a city of substance, but apart from just gambling and alongside the sparkle we quickly found that there was plenty to do.A city tour brought us right along the strip and in the evening this is something that has to be seen.

We first noticed the Coca-Cola shop while driving down the strip at night. The big green Coke bottle opposite 'New York New York' fits exactly into Las Vegas' crazy landscape and sums up exactly how commercial this place is.

Yet another example of how crazy Las Vegas can be! A three storey shop dedicated to m&m's! I hadn't thought that sugar-coated chocolate could be attractive enough to fill so much space but once I stepped inside I soon found out why!My favourite part of the store was the pic'n'mix that lined one of the walls. Every colour, every size, even every flavour seemed to be accounted for here. Never liked red sweets? No problem - fill your box with pink ones. Always thought m&m's were too small? Fill a bag with giant 'Shrek' size sweets!Round the rest of the shop, the different sweets developed personalities, made into soft toys, mugs, cushions, everything you could possibly think of. Speci...Read More
