Las Vegas part I
" Las Vegas looks the way you’d imagine heaven must look at night" – Chuck Palahniuk
As weird as this may sound.. I always knew I would love Vegas even before seeing Vegas. Remember I’m a European girl and we usually see Vegas in movies only! AI always knew that, after New York, Las Vegas must be the city in US that I HAVE TO visit.
I visited Las Vegas in January for about 10 days and this summer I decided to spend here 2 more months. So as you can imagine I’m pretty much an expert now when it comes to what to do in Vegas and where to stay.
First off you should know that, as a tourist, you don’t want to stay anywhere else but near the strip. So whether you’re on a budget trip and you want to stay somewhere affordable like Hooters or you want to stay in a luxury hotel such as MGM, Grand Bellagio or Wynn you have got to pick a location that is really close to the strip. Same goes for picking an airbnb.
I have stayed in all types of accommodation and my favorite one was The Signature at MGM Grand. If you do want a luxury vacation, I suggest you pick the one bedroom balcony suite. Not only because of the floor to ceiling windows, the oversized bathroom with a whirlpool spa tub and a mini TV, but also because you’d have a spectacular view over the city from the 38th floor.
This is a 950 square foot suite with one bedroom and a living room area with a dining table and an entertainment system, a full kitchen and 2 bathrooms.
I fell in love with this place as soon as I walked in. If you’re visiting Las Vegas during summer, you won’t be able to stand the heat. The Signature towers have an indoor passage that goes all the way to the MGM Grand. If you want the full summer experience, you can get your tan at one of the 3 pools of the Signature towers or at the main pool of the MGM Grand hotel.
One of the best views in Las Vegas is the Bellagio fountain show that runs every half hour from 3 pm until midnight. I suggest going to the alley on the left side that takes you to the main entrance, that’s the perfect spot for enjoying the show!
My favorite street in Las Vegas is the little street where the High Roller is – the Linq Promenade. Lots of lovely little restaurants and pubs and an awesome view of the High Roller lights after sunset will make your day incredible!
Here’s a tip: They have a lovely little show going on there! The same song will be playing on every speaker on the street and all restaurants, bars and the High Roller will synchronize their lights to the music.
