Its Never too late to Join Us!
This was truly an amazing trip. Who knew there was so much to do in Las Vegas.
While some visitors fly in to only see a boxing match and others visit just to hit the slots, there is so much more to do. In fact, there is so much more to do that it definitely requires more than one trip to do everything.
This trip included the usual music, food, people and casinos. However, we enjoyed so much more.
Here are the highlights for this Las Vegas Trip.
We stayed at the Polo Towers. This hotel is located on the strip and is near lots of shopping. The rooms are very nice. We enjoyed our VIP checkin and our free check-in gift upon arrival. The Polo Towers do not have an on site restaurant.

If you are in search for a nice breakfast and don’t mind waiting in line, walk over to The Cosmopolitan and visit The Egg Slut! Get ready to wait in line for about an hour.
After an amazing breakfast, we quickly changed into more rugged ware and headed off to the Hoover Dam. A word of caution, if you are wearing a hat, be sure it is strapped on. If not, you will loose your hat. Also, don’t pour water down over the observatory ledge. It will just splash back up into your face. Fun facts!
There are plenty of tour buses and vans that you can book for a trip to the Hoover Dam. We had a rental car and it only took about a 45 min drive to get there.
So glad we brought our hiking shoes. The second day in Vegas included a trip to Red Rock Canyon.
Red Rock Canyon is only about 45 minutes from the strip and even just the drive through Red Rock Canyon is a must. We drove to a few trail heads and enjoyed some amazing hikes. This helped us burn all those calories we had been consuming!
Remember to hydrate and take some snacks with you.
We will focus on the wilder side of Las Vegas on our next Vegas post. We hope you venture further off the strip next time you are in Vegas. You can also canoe the river/lake that connects to the Hoover Dam. You will find several caves that you can wander into. And don’t get me started with Havasu Falls! They are near the top of my bucket list! Stay safe and in touch! Join our travel team as we sometimes take over entire resorts and party like rockstars!
