Vegas, baby!

My husband has a business trip that he has to take to Las Vegas in February. He had a grand idea that I tag along, so now I am! I am very excited because I have never been to Vegas before. I’ve always wanted to go. The perk of it being a business trip is that we only had to pay for my plane ticket. You can’t beat that. He said that he should have enough free time that we can take in a show and do dinner 1 or 2 nights.
We’ll be going over Valentine’s weekend, so we’ll try to do something romantic while we’re there. We are staying at The Bellagio and I heard that it is supposed to be very nice. If anyone has any suggestions of things that I must do while I’m there, I am all ears!

We're going to Vegas in March! I can't wait.
I love the Bellaigo. It's such a pretty hotel. Their buffet is good. The buffets are my favorite part of Vegas.
I also like the outlet mall in Pimm.
You'll have so much. Vegas is a lot of fun.

Yay for Vegas!!! The Bellagio is REALLY nice so that's awesome that the room is free! It's been a few years since I was there last but I've heard the Cirque du Soleil shows are really good if there is one running while you're there. Mandalay Bay has an awesome aquarium if you like that sort of thing. Fremont street downtown is cool too.

We're supposed to be going in March too!

Bellagio is fantastic. Can you pick your own room? The Spa Tower is the brand new one, however it's closer to construction (although you can't hear it from inside the rooms) and the older tower is the one facing the fountains. If you can upgrade to a fountain view, DO IT! It's so nice.

<3 Vegas. If it wasn't so far away, I'd go every month.

There are so many great restaurants there too. My gosh. I'm jealous! You can walk the strip for hours and see so many free things. Definitely plan it out ahead of time since you only have a couple days to cram it all in :)

OMG! I love Vegas...!!
I have many suggestions but mine may be a bit outdated.
I stayed at the Luxor both times I've been.
~Bellagio is AWESOME~ :)

Oh..FIVE days! That's awesome. I've never spent that much time there...usually just 3 nights. There is so much to do, that will be awesome!

If you are into shopping at all, there is a very upscale shopping mall on the outskirts of town (hard to say, since I have no sense of direction while there) that has AWESOME deals. I'm not sure of the name, but there is a Coach Factory Outlet store there that literally had doormen working the door and letting people in one at a time...that's how freaking crowded it was. There were a ton of designer stores, and of course, the regulars.

Vegas is cool. I went twice while i lived in USA. Theres lots to look at.
Most of the hotels are stunning to go look at and have their own attractions.
