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…

2 Days: Sedona Vacation


Sedona Vacation


I love visiting the southwest and usually my focus is in Nevada, but for this trip I wanted to visit Sedona. For over a decade, I have heard family speak of the majestic colors and mountains in Sedona. 

We traveled from Boston to Phoenix first. I do not enjoy flying, but I love to travel. We use JetBlue for many reasons: the tv's on every seat-back, the kind employees, and the reliability. 

Having three kids and working, we find it incredibly important to spend some vacations just you-and-me style. Here we are happy to be able to go on vacation together. Leaving for Sedona! 


We enjoyed one night in Phoenix before traveling to Sedona. Unfortunately, the rain was relentless during our two day stay. 

Driving in the rain


We made the best of the driving and turned up the radio or just talked and laughed together feeling relaxed and having a good time. 





We booked a room at Poco Diablo Resort in Sedona. Poco Diablo has a great location and easy to drive to many restaurants and shops. Too cold to swim while there, we did enjoy the outside jacuzzi located next to the heated pool. 

We went into town and enjoyed great food and some window shopping. My daughter and I love the story of Sacajawea so when I saw this sign I had to take a picture.


After checking out of our hotel in Sedona, we started our road trip to Vegas. It is about a 5 hour drive. Take 89A and plan on making quick stops along the way to take pictures. 


When we left Sedona, we stopped at various places to just take pictures and enjoy the views...how incredibly relaxing.

Despite the weather, we enjoyed our trip and was sad to go. We cannot wait to try again.
