Las Vegas




These are some my snaps of Las Vegas. It is a very scenic place where else can you go and see New York, Venice, Egypt all in one stop. I do not like to gamble but Las Vegas has a lot to offer the traveler. The lights at night are beautiful and just amazing on the strip. The restaurants are wonderful too. The Paris has a great breakfast buffet, I would highly recommend this buffet.





Each hotel has some kind of free attraction and some for a fee. The MGM had lions,





Mirage had tigers and even dolphins, the Flamingo had some cool birds,




                           New York New York had a rollar coaster.






                                 the Luxor had a King Tut museum





 Bellagio had a cool fountain and a Botantical Conservatory,






 Venetian had gondola ride on their canals,





Paris had the Eifel tower, Caesars palace had talking statues of the Roman Gods,




Treasure Island puts on a cool pirate show.






We stayed almost a week and two of the days we rented a car... one day we drove to the Grand Canyon and the other day to Zion and Bryce National Parks.  I think I should quit my day job and become a travel agent. I love to travel and we try to go somewhere different every year.

Thanks for stopping by to see my Scenic Sunday and for more great Scenic Sunday photos go and visit our host the Holleys at Scenic Sunday

  1. I can identify with Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion. Yet you've opened my eyes to a different side of Vegas. I'll have to reconsider a summer trip there to see some of these free, non-gambling sights. Which you captured with excellence. Thanks.

  3. I never went to LV, the first time, I was visiting my aunty at SF, she told me to go, I was worried about spending my Dad's money.

    The second time my husband went for a conference, I wasn't asked if I wanted to go, (we were in Singapore)

    So I never got to go to LV, thanks very much for your photo and your tour. I don't have to to to LV now.

  5. It's been a few years since we have been to LV. Looks like you captured all the great attractions! I think my favorite is the changing 'sky' (ceiling) at Caesar's Palace. What time of year were you there?

  10. Vegas is a great place to play even for those who don't gamble. We were there in August but only for couple of nights before and after the Vegas to Reno desert race.

    Your photos are beautiful.
