7 Lessons Learned on Leaving Las Vegas …


1. Wind speeds effect many aspects of your vacation. From roller coaster style rides to fountain shows, be careful and watch the weather, anything over 30 mph can ruin your plans. I made the mistake of planning to see the fountain show, in front of the Bellagio, for my last night. I never saw it due to wind speeds.

2. Leaving Las Vegas without seeing a white tiger is almost impossible, I suggest going to a magic show. Ticket prices range from around $20 and up, and the entertainment is extraordinary.

3. Staying at the Excalibur, you can walk to Luxor and Mandalay Bay without going outside because they are linked together by underground walkways. Each hotel has something unique to offer, for example, the Excalibur has a great arcade for children too young to be on the gambling floor.

4. If you visit the Playboy Club at the Palms, you are so far up in the sky that you can see great views of the city, but can also feel the building sway! I suggest talking to the bartender for a remedy to ease the awareness of the motion.

5. Sometimes buildings look a lot closer than they really are. This does not mean it will be easy to get to them by foot. Give your feet a rest and take a cab occasionally. There is nothing worse than wearing your feet out on your first day, and having blisters for the remainder of the trip.

6. X-Scream is the meaning of a thrill ride! If you ride this roller coaster 900-ft. above the ground, spend the extra money to buy the personal picture and frame. You will need it to prove you rode it!

X-Scream: That's me in the second row, holding on for dear life!

X-Scream: That's me in the second row, holding on for dear life!

7. Playing the black 17 on the Roulette table can eventually pay out. Remember to only spend what you can afford to lose…but if you have $5 left to spend before leaving, play one number on the roulette table, it’s like one last roller coaster of emotion before you leave.
