Read Las Vegas Part 1 here.
More casinos! Starting with Caesars Palace, we managed to get a tour guide leaflet that had a small map of things to see, including places to shop, statues, and animatronics.
We ventured into the Mirage to see where Cirque Du Soleil’s LOVE is so we knew where we were going the following day.
Then we decided we’d head up the Stratosphere all 1149ft of it, we decided it was safer to watch the rides up there rather than actually going on them. The views were brilliant though, you could see for miles.
We headed to Fremont Street to see the Burlesque Hall Of Fame and to see the absolutely massive LED canopy. It was bonkers, live street entertainment, topless women, people over-head on the zip line, lights everywhere, people in stunning costumes, you name it, it was there! We even popped inside the Mob museum.
To finish the day, we went to see Absinthe, Melody Sweets was second on stage with a singing burlesque routine as the sultry absinthe fairy.
The whole show was superb, I laughed until I cried, watched more burlesque, saw some insane stunts and trapeze artists, I was also given a fortune cookie saying that I’d develop a drinking problem in the next few days.
Whilst we were staying in Vegas we also went to the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon.
On the last day, we went to see Cirque Du Soleil’s LOVE and took a last walk down part of the strip, we went up the Eiffel tower to say goodbye to all the bright lights and watch the water show in front of the Bellagio. It was a bitter sweet way to say goodbye, the lights all twinkled in the night.
