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 …

Missing Our Happy Place

As usual, we have the next trip booked within weeks of returning. I know how lucky we are to go back to Vegas so often. I love the excitement, the noise, the people, and the equal amounts of familiarity and unpredictability. Here’s a few more things we love about our Vegas Nevada adventures.

Golf isn’t my thing, but it is fun to do with hubby and it’s so beautiful being out on the golf course it’s hard to not do it at least one morning on our vacations.

Did you know you can drive out to Boulder Creek and try out your golf swing?

 Here I am at Boulder Creek on a beautiful July morning. I have no idea what I’m doing, but it’s fun anyway!


 Don’t get me wrong, I love the dingdingding of machines and the whooping and laughter of craps tables, but part of why we love Vegas is because we enjoy the other things.

One quiet place on the strip in the gardens at the Flamingo. Waterfalls, fish, birds, and there a delicious pizza place right there too. It’s wonderful to find a quiet place on the strip once in awhile.

Another picturesque place that people often consider a perfect place for a few selfies is right outside the Mirage.

So before you go racing in to the casino, take a moment like we did and get that romantic self shot!

Of course a favorite thing to do is gamble. My husband experienced his first hand pay at the Venetian. A quick stop in before a show and BOOM!
