The City that never sleeps, Las Vegas

7 Comments

Las Vegas is one of the cities that offers elite nightlife with some of the most popular night clubs and casinos. It is also called the ‘Sin City’. Being a day person, I was not very excited about Vegas at first.But the best thing about this city is it can be molded in the way you want it to. It is one of the prettiest cities that I have ever been to and there is just so much more than gambling and clubbing.

In the heart of the city resides the Vegas strip with all the casinos at a walk-able distance from each other. Catch a sight of the famous Bellagio fountain which goes as high as 460 feet with dramatic music, lights and the Eiffel tower Restaurant in the backdrop. Cross the street to canoe into the magnificent Venetian waters with the splendor of Italian serenade music.

Drive to the Hoover dam through the Lake Mead National Park which is a stretch of about 13 miles of mountain and lake. Cross the Hoover Dam bridge that runs over the Colorado river and manifests the Arizona Nevada border. I was very fascinated with the two huge clocks on both sides of the border which had time difference in spite of being a few meters away from each other.

Old Vegas is definitely something that you do not want to miss and has spectacular street shows and plays. Zip lining across the casinos is also one of the major attraction in Old Vegas which is also the Vegas Downtown.

  2. hmmm…brought back memories of trip taken last year with a plan made 2 days prior to that. Bellagio Fountain, Mirage Volcano, View of LV from Stratosphere top floor, mesmerizing shows- David Copperfield magic show and Le Reve acrobatics with story. Not to forget drive along mountains to Hoover Dam and witnessing story of hard work that lead to its creation. Yup, spot with 2 clocks of different time zones was unique and fascinating :). Missed going to Grand Canyon…

    Did you see any shows ?

    • Hi Iva,

      I am sorry I haven’t been very actively posting my stories as my parents visited me for a month and all my time was pretty much spent with them.

      But the good news is I traveled a lot and I have lot of exciting stories to share. I will soon resume my posts and look forward to solving your puzzles too.
