Las Vegas Pt. 2

New York New York Las Vegas

Here goes the second part!

The second or third day, we decided to do the other half of the strip as people probably know it as the older, but original Las Vegas. Obviously this has changed massively from back in the day, when it was all the rave and famous people like Elvis use to play here.

We drove past so many ‘Little White Chapels’ and some cool vintage cars!IMG_4007
We even drove past the pawn shop from Pawn Stars and went in for a quick look! (My dad is a fan).IMG_4031
I saw the Golden Nugget and had to do this..

We then went for a walk down Fremont Street where they now do a zipline, that go through the whole building – which is pretty cool!

They do these great animations that go across the screens above your head and really light the place up! This is now sponsored by Red Bull and they do some cool stuff like aeroplane shows and memorials on these screens..IMG_4061
This has to be my favourite room, in the whole of Las Vegas. This was inside the Belaggio, it was a display for fall/autumn and it was incredibly beautiful! I love stuff like interior design, environmental design and animation so I fell in love with this room. All of the flowers were real, too. Beautiful.IMG_4111 IMG_4113 IMG_4115 IMG_4132

We were walking down the strip one night and this zombie guy came creeping out from behind a wall and scaring people (even without jumping out on them or making any noise, just the sense of being watched and actually realising!) – we got addicted to watching him in the end, we must’ve sat there for about 2 hours filming him and I eventually had the courage to have a photo with him and throw him a few dollars tip! He was actually a lovely guy, with a very soft, friendly voice!IMG_4354
The next morning, (our last full day) we went on the rollercoaster in our hotel. It was a lot of fun, did a loop and some corkscrews – a little bumpy and rackety though as it was pretty old, great fun though!

We went for a drive to the famous Las Vegas sign, as we couldn’t seem to find it the night before. It is actually a lot smaller than I thought, I was surprised! There was also a huge queue to have a photo here, as an Elvis impersonator was there trying to get tuts and making people think that they HAD to queue up! So.. we just snook down the side and snapped a few photos – cheekay cheekaaay!

And obviously, we couldn’t resist more Taco Bell as usual..IMG_4410
On the last night, I decided that I HAVE to gamble whilst in Las Vegas to say that I have and cross off the bucket list! We probably spent about $3, I know, I know.. We need to chill out on the gambling, CLEARLY!
Well, it turns out that it’s a lot more complicated than I thought! I thought you just pull the lever on the fruit machines and voila! Not quite.. turns out that I lost all of the money and ended up getting some of the remainder back..

I sadly didn’t win, and this was my own money, back to me..

On our last night, we went into the Excalibur hotel as we heard that they have a Dick’s Last Resort restaurant there, so we thought of giving it a try..
If you don’t know what Dick’s Last Resort is, it’s a restaurant where the staff treat you like crap. They are hired, to treat you like crap, give bad service and basically wind you up! It was a great experience, luckily we didn’t get it as bad as other people! (I would post photos, but I don’t think they would approve of it and I have no consent!).

We did have one nice waiter though as he noticed that we were Welsh, so we had a full on conversation with him and he was trying to impress us by being able to spell ‘llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch’ (a small town in Wales, famous for it’s ridiculously long name and everyone non-welsh like to ask if you can pronounce it – yes, we can).

At Dick’s, they like to give you very sexy paper hats with a charming comment on them. I was pretty thrilled to get a hat, and I must say, a lot of people say the same thing about me. I’m cute until I open my mouth 🙂

It was our last day in Las Vegas, so we decided to go to Hard Rock Cafe for our last breakfast here and it was the best breakfast we had yet! We then set off for Los Angeles for our last 5 days of the trip.
