It’s Vegas Baby!

Coke Museum and Store, Vegas Baby! With my husband

It had been twenty years since I had last been in Vegas and my husband was experiencing it for the first time this last October. We both were wowing at the sights for very different reasons. I was amazed at how much it had changed but some aspects had stayed the same. My husband couldn’t believe all that was going on.

The great thing about Vegas is that it’s ever changing. New improvements to the guest experience. Need a new hotel and casino, build one. If there isn’t space, implode an old one. I was amazed at how many more things had been crammed into the stripe. In the 90’s the casinos had grand sweeping pieces of real-estate that guests had to travel through to get to the casino. It was all part of the experience. Now that real-estate has other small hotels on it, or retail shops and drink carts to get your adult beverage as you walk the strip.

Walking the strip has become a lot easier. I love the pedestrian bridges that are at almost every intersection.Now you don’t have to worry, as much, by getting hit by a car when crossing the street. You just take a bridge over. Even on street level there is a barrier between the side walks and the street. Depending on the time of day there are still a ton of people walking and that makes it a challenge to walk around but over all a lot easier to explore.

My husband and I had a great time walking the strip. We wondered in and out of casinos, played the slots, ate and drank. It was a fun experience. Every once and a while we would get behind some one who was smoking pot, which is legal in Nevada. That wasn’t a pleasant experience but there was always room to get around them or just pop into a casino.

If you haven’t been to Vegas in a while, or have never been, take a trip and experience it. It’s like no other place. It’s Vegas Baby.

Until next time.
