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.

The Valley of Fire State Park in the Summer My husband and I love to hike in New England so it’s only natural that we share this love with the locals in Nevada and ask for suggestions on where to go and what to do.

Although making this trip in the summer is not ideal, when we share that we are going to embark on this adventure in July we are still given friendly, great advice Take plenty of water! and Have a great time! (which is all we needed to start planning our next adventure). Because of the dangerously high temperatures of the summer, a hike in The Valley of Fire can be somewhat last minute, but with careful planning. Since the heat can rise well into the 100’s, the best time to visit is in the morning. And, since we are from the East Coast, we thought why not plan our visit around the 5:44am sunrise.
