The Park MGM

The Park MGM
Have you been to Monte Carlo in Vegas lately? Well, it's not the Monte Carlo anymore. It's The Park MGM.
Inside the Monte Carlo Summer 2012 (now The Park MGM)

The Monte Carlo was beautiful with fountains and statues at the main entrance on the strip. As much as I miss the fountains and statues, I do like most of the changes. It is convenient to walk from NYNY to The Park aka Monte Carlo. You can easily walk across from one property to the next which is great for us because these are two of our favorite properties.

Yes, that is snow! This is a picture on the strip from February 2019. Once your eyes get beyond the snow, you can see that this walkway is still a work in progress. Always sometime new because Vegas is always changing.

Between NYNY and The Park MGM is The Park. There are new restaurants inside and out, a giant arena, and a fun area outside to sit, eat, chat, walk, and just enjoy being with…

Top 5 Bonuses on Slot Machines

Image
Slot players love bonuses!  Here's a list of 5 games we love to play just based on the bonus games. Having fun while winning money is the name of the game.

In no particular order:

1. Simpsons Slot Machine: Double seater (already a plus), three screen slot machine with a variety of bonuses. There's a random monorail bonus, donut bonus, and bonus based on your favorite character appearing in all four corners of the game. This is a colorful and noisy machine. Plus, what could be more fun than hearing Homer antagonizing the player to hit the button and making the infamous "Doh".

2. Buffalo: One of the most popular games with slot players. There are many versions of this game from one screen old games to giant large screen game with two seaters and then there is a four screen versions with a mix of buffalo and other classics. On this newer version, this is what the player is hoping for along with hoping to get the grand prize won by a spin when you trigger the bonus. The …

The Best Four Days in Vegas

The Best Plan With Four Days in Vegas 
Fly in on a Wednesday night. If you come from the east coast like us, you'll arrive starving. Forget the idea that you'll be tired when you arrive; you won't be when you pick up your bags and feel that southwest night air. You'll be wide awake by the time you see the lights of the strip.

We always stay near NYNY so our first stop is there. Go grab some late night dinner (or breakfast) at America's in NYNY Casino. We love this place. There's an amazing 3D map of the United States to look at as you marvel at the fact that "I'm in Vegas!" They have breakfast all day, a late night menu, gluten free options, and delicious desserts.

After a good meal, walk right over to the piano bar. Wednesday nights are quiet so sit down and relax at the bar slots, throw in a $20, and have a drink or two.

Leave NYNY out the exit by the Zumanity Theatre and take some pictures there with the Zumanity props. It's fun. This exit …

Enjoy New Hampshire, Jackson Falls

Image
In a world that is fast moving, this is a moment of joy. A moment to relax and enjoy each other.

Next time you visit the White Mountains and North Conway area, consider adding Jackson Falls
to your list of places to see.





Jackson Falls, although well-known to locals, seems less well-known to those visiting the area.
Santa’s Village, the Saco River, outlet shopping, and Zebs all deserve to be on the must see list
and so should Jackson Falls.
Small kids. Teens hard to please. A young couple in love. Generations of family and friends.
Jackson Falls is a fun afternoon for everyone.





Jackson center includes a quaint library, restaurant called Yesterday’s, and a small school with soccer
fields and a gazebo across the street. There is parking across from the school and when we parked
there we just had a nice, quiet walk over a small cross over bridge and then up the hill to the falls.
This is on sidewalks so it is a safe walk, but families with small children should consider parking at the
Falls…
