This was my second visit and Ty’s first visit to Las Vegas and it has to be one of our most favourite cities. I fell in love with Vegas in a big way over a year ago when I visited with my family and I must admit, it was a little unexpected for me.
While I always thought it would be a cool place to visit, it never really enticed me that much because I’m not a big partier, I don’t really enjoy the nightclub scene and I’m not into gambling (gosh I sound boring…).
But Las Vegas blew me away! The bright lights, the iconic resorts and casinos, the shopping, the vibe, the craziness, the excitement and the incredible shows all captivated me and Las Vegas will always be one of my favourite cities to visit.
After a long day walking the strip and visiting all the resorts and casinos, I’ve put together my Best Of Las Vegas Awards! All opinions are my own, but of course I consulted Ty as well!
