In Las Vegas
Wednesday, Aug 4, 2010
South Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas, NV
We left early morning from home and flew to Las Vegas via Atlanta, Ga. Our first segment of the flight was on time. But when we left Atlanta we were one hour behind schedule but the pilot was able to make up 30 minutes. We arrived at McCarran International Airport just before noon PDT. We took the car rental shuttle and by the time our rental car was ready and we left the airport it was another hour later. The weather was hot and dry it was different from Florida.
Finally we checked into the hotel and ate some lunch near by. After taking some rest we went toward "The Strip". Originally we wanted to make a quick trip and return in the night. But we decided to stay the whole evening. We saw Mandalay Bay, Luxor, MGM Grand, New York New York, Paris, Planet Hollywood, and The Bellagio.
By the time we decided to go back the night had fallen and we ate dinner at Planet Hollywood's Earl of Sandwitch shop. After dinner we walked around the Strip near the Bellagio Complex (The Bellagio, The Ceasers Palace and The Mirage). We also watched the dancing fountain in front of the Bellagio.
