Vegas is probably our favorite place for a little getaway. There’s so much to do, and we never get sick of doing the same things each time we go.
The Fabulous Las Vegas sign
This famous sign is a must see! It’s located on Las Vegas Blvd South. You can type “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign” into the maps app on your phone and it will show you right where it is. It’s a little South of the main part of The Strip, but it’s not too far of a drive. When you come up to it there will be a turn out on the left side of the road where you park to see it.

Singing gondolier on the gondola
The gondolier sings in Italian the whole time, and it’s a pretty long boat ride.
The Venetian's town square
Inside The Venetian, you really feel like you’re outside and we love the Italian architecture.

The pirate ship outside of the Treasure Island Hotel. They no longer do the shows at night here.
Trying the Cokes of the world
You have to try the Around the World Tray for $8 at the World of Coca-Cola Store. You get 16 sodas that are flavors they sell in other countries, like Italy, Peru, and Japan. Our favorite flavor is Bibo Kiwi Mango from South Africa.
Statue of David replica in Las Vegas
Replica of Michelangelo’s David in Caesar’s Palace. This was so hard to find! We asked about 5 workers where it was before giving up and hunting it down ourselves. It is located outside of the casino on Appian Way. It is not in the Forum Shops like the workers will tell you. It is an exact replica of the original in Florence, Italy.
See flamingos and other wildlife at The Flamingo
Bellagio Water Fountains
We go watch this every night whenever we are there. We usually watch them from the sidewalk in front of The Bellagio, but in this picture we were watching from behind the fountains. We loved this view because it wasn’t as crowded on that side and you could see them just as well.
We used to go to Chevy's a lot, but they've since closed. Our new favorite place is Slice of Vegas. Haagen Dazs is the other place we always go. We usually go to the one in the Venetian, but they are also located in the MGM, New York New York, and the Fashion Show Mall.
Next time we go to Vegas, we want to see a Cirque du Soleil show, a Blue Man Group show, and we want to ride the High Roller ferris wheel. For dinner one night, we want to eat dinner at The Eiffel Tower Restaurant in the Paris hotel.
