Last Day in Vegas

We did not have anything planned  on our last day in Vegas so we decided to  roam around.   We had a whole day to kill since our flight wasn't until in the evening.  I wanted to go to the residential facilities for veterans in Las Vegas but my husband said that we might need an appointment for it so we just abandoned the idea.  It would have been a good opportunity for the kids to  greet veterans.
Even early in the morning, the heat of the sun was already setting in so our  strategy was to go in some of the shopping building to cool off then go out again and explore.  
 Being able to explore  on foot is a lot better than driving around as you get to see a lot of things and also experience it.  A lot of walking and sweating is a great exercise.
We got to roam around Vegas on a hot summer day but it was a lot of fun.
Las Vegas  is a beautiful place to really explore.  You get to see different  building structures that you would see visiting different places but it is all there in Vegas.
Caesar's Palace is what captivated me the most.  It's beautiful, I am sure it cost a fortune just to build what's on the exterior of the building.  I used to admire it from movies but seeing it in person is  awesome.
When we were walking around, there were many instances where sales people  were trying to entice us with "freebies" again but  we never fell for it since we knew the drill already from what we experienced on our second day of our vacation.
We do our  vacation during summer time when our kids are off from school so it is always super hot.  We also do it  during this time to celebrate  either our daughter's birthday or our wedding anniversary.  
I can't believe it's been over a year since we last visited Vegas, time do flies!   I think  one of the   shocking experience my kids  had during our roaming journey is when they saw a man lying on the sidewalk, he seem lifeless and we didn't really know if we will try to help but he seemed so drugged out that my husband said don't bother him.  
We don't gamble and we didn't really  watch any of the shows in Vegas so exploring the city and the nearby  natural beauty like the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead was really awesome.
I think our son's favorite is  the car show that we went to.

We stayed in Vegas for our vacation but the most memorable that we did was our roadtrip to Grand Canyon.  It's true that we've seen  so many beautiful things in Vegas but the  beauty of nature still wins for me.

Sometimes it is nice not to have any plans and just roam around and take in the sites. Tons to see in Vegas that is for sure.

I need to get to Vegas with my family. There's so much we want to see and do. There's a Haunted Museum there that just opened.

It sounds like you had a lovely last day in Vegas even with nothing planned! I would love to get to go and visit myself one day as it seems like there is so much to do there other than just the casinos and that's the side I would love to see.

I had a great time when I visited Vegas many years ago. I agree with you that traveling on foot is the best way to see the city.

My husband will be in Vegas in November. I don't get to go. I would go and see Donnie and Marie any time!

Such a good idea to explore Las Vegas in this way! A lot of people just do the casinos and shows and forget that there is SO much else to see there!

Vegas is awesome, huh? We had a great time when we went there last year. I'm glad you enjoyed it, too!

I like to just roam around different cities I visit and explore too. And you're right about those salespeople who entice you with "freebies." Best just to avoid them.

Shannan Powell said...

I have never been to Vegas! Seriously considering for our 15th anniversary next year. Looks like you had a wonderful time!

My oldest daughter has Vegas on her bucket list. I love all the pictures, I especially love the ones with the angel's playing the trumpets.

I have a travel before that I just booked a ticket and hotel and no plans about itinerary. Still, I managed to be able to enjoy it. No pressures on where to go and time schedules.

Rika Livingston said...
