One of our most memorable holidays has been our most recent one – our visit to Las Vegas. It was a last minute booking as we were headed to Los Angeles for the New Year and we decided to fit in a quick Las Vegas trip. We don’t regret it one bit.
I booked our tickets from Los Angeles to Las Vegas from the UK and got a really great deal on both the tickets and accommodation. We were looking forward to visiting the city we had heard so much about. And after trying out some of the best casino sites online, we were looking forward to trying our hand in a live casino. We had booked into the Marriot Grand Vacations and landed ourselves an apartment in the hotel. I had checked out the photos of the accommodation but nothing prepared us for the sheer grandeur of it. The apartment was large with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. One of the bathrooms boasted a jacuzzi and a wet room and it was huge. The view was amazing as we could see the planes taking off on the runway.
I don’t think there’s any other city in the world like Las Vegas. It’s so full of life and the atmosphere is electric. Indeed there seems to be so much electricity around that we would keep getting little jolts of electricity run through us when we touched metal and even when we touch each other. Go figure!
There’s so much to do in Vegas that the quick trip was definitely not enough.
The real appeal of Las Vegas lies in the casinos of course, or should I say the hotel casinos. Modeled after famous landmarks and cities, there really is nothing quite like them that I’ve ever seen. The opulence and the sheer grandeur will take your breath away. And then there are the slot machines and the blackjack tables. It looks like the movies have come to life. We did try our hand at the slot machines, putting in pennies and feeling smug when we won a few dollars. I can quite see how it can swallow you up and make you want to play more and more.
The hotels also serve up the most amazing buffets and that’s something you shouldn’t miss. The food that is laid out is a banquet fit for a king. Stuffing your face becomes a reality. And the desserts!! No words.
No doubt, nowadays you don’t really need to be in Vegas to try your luck. There are casino sites that you can try online itself and see if Lady Luck favors you. The best casino sites give you great bonuses too and these can help make you put forward that first bet. It just means you have more to spend and more ways to win.
Have you ever been to Las Vegas? What are your thoughts on the city?
