Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas! We camped at Samâ€™s Town Casino in the RV area. The first day we caught a cab to the strip and walked from MGM Grand to the Venetian. We saw dancing waters, beautiful botanical gardens, a show about the fall of Atlantis and so much more. We wandered through casinos with Mom and Dad. I was amazed with how large the hotels were and how packed everything seemed. Being nearly solitary for the last several weeks made it all a bit overwhelmingâ€¦ not to mention the HEAT! Grand Canyon was around 65F the entire day but at 3pm in Las Vegas it was near 100F! UGH!
We walked around and saw all the flashy lights and chaos. Mom zip lined with B down Fremont street. I was too light to go. Maybe another time!
We called it a night as the streets were becoming more and more crowded with drunk people and ladies dancing on bars, again, HUH?
We were up early and off to Hoover Dam for a tour. I loved seeing where they generate power from the moving water. We got to go into some dark hallways and see some neat things. I liked the seismograph in the hallway and all the holes I could look into.
We walked out a giant spill way and were able to take photos out of a grate at the end.
We went back and cleaned the camper and did laundry and caught up on all the tasks we have to do to make sure we have a neat organized place.
We tried to catch a cab to go back to the strip but there were NO cabs available for over an hour. Dad ended up driving us into town. We went to Excalibur to see the Tournament of Kings show. We sat in the dragon section, the bad guy! I got a special meal of ravioli with no sauce. I was a happy kiddo, it was YUMMY! The food was great and the entertainment was fun. We saw jousting, fire, horses, jester and so much more! What a fun evening!
Goodbye Las Vegas.
