Inside the hotel and casino is like a city, with street signs, coney island, coffee shops, even a rollercoaster. Since I love New York City, this was a great reminder for me. The room was nice and very comfortable. Park Avenue Deluxe w/ King Bed.
Most of that amazement was in the architecture and everything being bigger than life on the strip, a.k.a. Las Vegas Blvd. Even in the middle of the week the strip was jammed with people from every part of the globe.
I met two separate couples that flew to Vegas from Australia. For me this trip was mostly for discovery. discovering what everyone loves about Vegas. Now I didn't catch any of the shows or win any significant amount of money, but I did enjoy the atmosphere and some great food.
When I go back, yes I am going back, I will go to see a couple of shows and visit a few more fabulous restaurants. It would not be Vegas if you don't see at least one Elvis Impersonator Or two.
