Seeing as we had just crossed over the border into Nevada, we had to stop by Las Vegas. Speaking of going into Nevada, it’s actually really easy to tell from far away when you’re about to get into Nevada. All you have to do is look for the huge flashy lights signifying that there’s a casino nearby. Once you reach the casino, you’re in Nevada. No joke.
Anyway, we made it into America’s Sin City and were greeted by bright flashing lights, shady wedding chapels, and billboards advertising call girls and special nightly “shows” for gentlemen. All very typical things, I imagine. There’s also a replica of the Eiffel Tower…It’s a lot smaller than the original in Paris 😉
There’s even an Arc de Triomphe! Again, it’s quite a bit smaller than the one in Paris. The Vegas Arc is even smaller than the towering hotels!
The best part of Vegas, in my opinion (take it with a grain of salt because I don’t gamble and hate it), is the fountain show put on the Bellagio Hotel. The Bellagio fountains have a beautiful show every 15 or 30 minutes – the multiacre fountains dance and light up to classical music and are overall quite pretty.
Unfortunately, the fountains aren’t enough for me to want to come back to Vegas any time soon. Maybe ever. It’s just not my kind of city.
