Viva Las Vegas

How can you spend 3 days outside Las Vegas and not cruise the strip? We said we wouldn't, but curiosity got the best of us. Our first adventure was just trying to find the strip. We parked at The Rio and walked over. We entered from a parking garage belonging to Caesars Palace and had to ask how to even get out. When we finally did.......WHOA!!!
To make a not so long story shorter we walked up one side of the strip and down the other. Certain blocks required hands over Kaleb's eyes. Mouths wide open staring up. Free shows. Lions and M&M's. Water shows. Pirates. Volcano's. PEOPLE EVERYWHERE. We spent 3 hours total in the city before rushing out. Now we can check that off on the been there, done that. Although not even a penny spent in the slots. Hmmmm...

Spent a few years there as a child and don't recall a thing about the place. I'm told back then the Howdy Dodey Man still waved his hand and boomed out greetings.
How you made it through without touching a slot machine is a wonder. A bunch of those gamblers want to know the secret!
