Viva Las Vegas!

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Jeff and I went to Las Vegas a few weekends ago for a conference. I just laid around and was a bum for most of it. It was kind of the perfect vacation.

On our first day we went to Red Rock Canyon, Bonnie Springs Ranch, and Hoover Dam with the Lomurro's. I usually just stayed on the strip when I go to Vegas, so it was fun to go our and explore new things.

Red Rock Canyon was absolutely beautiful. We drove the 13 mile loop and made quick stops for pictures a long the way. We realized when we got back to the hotel that we could see if from our room as well :)

We then went over to Bonnie Springs Ranch. It was cool seeing all the old buildings, but a little creepy at the same time. There was a petting zoo that we went too that totally creeped us out. They had animals in cages and some really managing looking animals roaming free.

We then headed down to Hoover Dam. Totally reminded me of Transformers (I'm obsessed with those movies) It was really amazing to see in person.

We stayed at the Aria and totally recommend it. The room was great and the view was amazing.

All in all it was a great trip to Vegas....well, unless you include the flight home when we were stuck in Utah on the runway for an hour and then stuck in the air over Jersey for forever! Longest flight home ever!
