Travel is great in small or large doses (I prefer larger doses). But when you can’t get away for that long trip, a couple shorts trips can certainly suffice; which led my husband and I to lively Las Vegas. The best part about Sin City? Just two days is plenty! It’s long enough to get away from the daily grind, but short enough that you don’t feel totally exhausted.
We arrived Friday mid-morning and started the day by exploring our hotel resort. This weekend we chose to stay at Bellagio (I found a good deal on our site). We shopped, then dined in the Palazzo’s Dos Caminos–A New York restaurant we love, now also living on the West Coast. We finished dinner in plenty of time for Holly Madison’s super fun show at Planet Hollywood.
The next day began with massages at Bellagio Spa (any spa service gives you all-day access to the lovely spa), lunch next door at the new Cosmopolitan Hotel, shopping at nearby Caesars Palace, back to the spa to take advantage of the relaxing sauna (quite a nice retreat after the barrage of crowds on The Strip), and we finished the night with dinner and a show at our hotel.
All that in two days! What would you do with just 48 hours in Vegas?
