Vegas is a city that practically runs on the permanent influx of tourists from everywhere across the globe, over 30 million a year as reported by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. The city is centered around luxurious hotels with a combined room number of over 100,000! Las Vegas boasts and impressive list of traveling concerts and shows, as well as some permanent companies such as Cirque Du Soleil. The acrobats are second to none, and will leave you in awe of their performances as well as the stage decor. If you have a trip planned to vegas I definitely recommend catching one of their shows.

Decadent decor and food are plentiful throughout Vegas, and leave you with more choices than you know what to do with. The casinos often have several restaurants inside for patrons, with easy access and close proximity to the slot machines and card tables. Shops filled with luxurious products are not hard to find, just don't touch the glass, you may set off the alarm. The Bellagio Fountains are a well known attraction and worth the walk to see them put on their impressive display. The trip to Vegas was overall a great trip, although, by the end, I was ready to be home. The big city life is a normal day for some but I do like my peace and quiet at the end of the day. You will likely do a lot of walking while you are out in Vegas so bring comfortable shoes and don't forget the blister bandages for those special occasion shoes.

We also visited the Las Vegas Springs Nature Preserve, another top recommendation from me to you. The Las Vegas Springs Nature Preserve is a great place to be right in the middle of Vegas, just a few minutes from the downtown hustle and bustle. The sun was out and the weather was great. The preserve has lessons on sustainability, water preservation, Las Vegas history, and even a library with books to check out.
Towards the end of our trip we took a drive outside the city to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, saw a horseback riding outfit, and decided to stop in. I was on halfling and enjoyed the ride. It was a nice way to decompress from being surrounded by the neon lights of Vegas for a week. The ride was smooth and the scenery was awesome!
