After riding and writing, travel is my next favorite thing to do, so of course I want to share photos of our trip. We've been to Las Vegas a number of times, Hubby more than me as it is certainly a guys' favorite, but we always do something a little different. Some of you must be wondering how far Vegas is from Bakersfield. If traffic is relatively normal, it's about a 4 hour drive, but on a Sunday afternoon, it can be twice that.
If you've never been, prepare to be wowed, spend a lot of money, and experience serious sensory over-load. We always arrive with excitement and anticipation, but we're always just as eager to get the heck out of there. It's a strange city.
We stayed at the Bellagio, the casino with the big fountain show out in front. We've stayed there before, but I really like it. Last time we splurged and got a suite with a view of the fountain and The Strip, but since we were only staying one night this time, we got a less pricey room, but we still had a nice view.
Tickets can be bought from ATM-like machines for about $20 bucks for a regular, daytime ride. The evening trips are a bit more expensive, but I know it's worth it. Next time we're there, we're definitely going up at night. It takes 30 minutes to go around once, which was the perfect amount of time to spend enjoying the view. Which, by the way, was nothing short of spectacular.
