Las Vegas

I just got back from Las Vegas Wednesday night....It was a quick trip just 3 days. I went to visit a friend who moved out there sometime ago....This was the first time I've been back in almost 25 years..Things have sure changed.   My friend Gail and I decided we had enough NE winter weather and  booked a package. We stayed at the new city center Aria Hotel.  Very modern, lots of glass very little pizazz. Lobby is fairly boring. Anyway nothing is all bad they have a very nice pool & spa area.  The room was large and very nice. Very High Tech. All kinds of buttons for the lights,TV, Radio and even the drapes.
Our room with a King size bed. We asked for 2 queens but apparently they have very few of those.  I've never heard of hotel not having many rooms with 2 queen size beds..
                                                    The was a lounge area outside the spa.
these are 2 very nice fiber art pieces

I think this was the best part of the hotel.   I lost a big $5.00 on the penny machine..LOL I'm not exactly a high roller.. We saw 2 shows Barry Manilow and Elvis Cirque l'soile .  We had a nice time. Would I recommend this Hotel? Not really. I spent one day looking at the other ones, Venetian and the Bellagio especially, were much nicer. I also like the Wynn. 

Now I will get ready for Italy and the Verona Show.


  1. Did you get a photo of the canal and the gondolier???

    The time is ticking by so nicely now.

  2. Of course I took pictures of the Venetian and the gondola's I'll post them next

  3. I remember about 10 years ago I met a couple of my friends in Vegas for a week. It was the first time I had been there in around 30 years. What a difference! So I know how you felt. Isn't it amazing?
