Las Vegas

We usually stop in Vegas for a few nights when traveling out west and for the last several years have gone the first week of December when the NFR Rodeo Finals are going on. They usually have lots of great shows going on and the town is full of cowboys and cowgirls.

Here’s some Vegas strip snapshots…

View from our room at the Bellagio – be sure and ask for a fountain view!

Our favorite place to stay is The Signature at MGM, which are the three towers located behind the MGM. It’s a bit inconvenient to walk a couple of blocks to the strip but for the price, their suites can’t be beat and you get a balcony too! You can request a strip view suite or a mountain/airport view where it’s fun to watch the planes coming and going. Like them on Facebook (and all your favorite hotels) for special offers and you’ll be amazed at the savings. This past trip we got great rates plus $75 towards food at any of their restaurants.

Wally loves to eat at Todai Japanese and Sushi Restaurant located just up the block in the Miracle Mile Shopping Mall behind Planet Hollywood Casino and Hotel. For those of you that love to shop, this is a cool mall that even has a recurring rain storm.

It was fall when we went so the conservatory was decked out in fall motif.
