Las Vegas Travel Diary - Caesar's Palace

Las Vegas...

Home of divine cuisine, bustling casinos, elaborate shows and massive amounts of crazy people walking along the streets. Yeah, it's a good time.

The afternoons were sunny and the hotels were buzzing as we made our way around The Strip those five days. But, not like Florida's sweat-your-butt-off-looks-like-you-just-came-out-of-a-pool sunny. I'm talking easy, breezy and beautiful (*typed while singing like the Covergirl commercial*).

I'm the type of traveler that could have a fantastic time by simply sight-seeing. Hotels, restaurants, historic sites - you name it, I'd love to see it. SO, Vegas just melted my traveler heart with its enormous and amazingly decorated hotels and shopping areas. P.S. Don't go to Vegas if you don't have money to blow (though this should be known already by most), you'll be tempted to try that genuine Italian gelato at The Venetian, pick out some killer designer heels from Caesar's Forum Shops or add a new Fendi to your collection while visiting The Bellagio.

It took some serious self-restraint on my end, people. SERIOUS RESTRAINT.

Anywhooooo. Since we landed in Vegas around midnight on the night of our arrival, we got the chance to see The Strip in full swing.

Lights. Dancers. Drunk idiots. Oh yeah - the gang was all there.

Such a change from the laid-back Florida atmosphere, but we absolutely loved it. There's something about going to an environment that is on the complete opposite end of the spectrum from what your accustomed to. It's sort of like unleashing a hidden identity... You realize that you're suddenly a daredevil and open to trying exotic foods, riding roller coasters over skyscrapers and consider rock climbing a nearby canyon. But, that's the beauty of traveling.

For our first day in Vegas, we decided to start off by having a family workout session at our hotel (A-Team, as we like to be known), followed by a delicious breakfast (photo above) at Citizen's Cafe and then showered to tackle The Strip during the afternoon hours.

We began our daytime extravaganza by visiting Caesar's Palace (keep in mind, THE FORUM SHOPS). Not only is Caesar's one of the largest hotels on the strip - take notice of how long it takes you to completely walk past the hotel's premises - it offers a number of things to do and see. Here's a few pictures from inside and around the hotel:

Needless to say, it took us a while to navigate all areas of the hotel - because obviously, I wanted to see everything. *Sidenote: The last time that my family and I were in Las Vegas was about 7 or 8 years ago. So, a lot of the new areas or hotels since then I definitely wanted to see. But, since I was much younger, I wanted to revisit all of the old places that I had been, too.*

Curious to see what other places we visited later that day and evening? Stay tuned for my next post visiting The Venetian, The Palazzo and other locations! 

Hope you're having a lovely Monday (or at least the best one possible... )! Start off the week strong!!
