The City of Lights

Our view Atop the Wynn Hotel and Casino…image

I don’t know what it is about Las Vegas, but I can’t get enough of it, and gambling has nothing to do with it.  I’ve been there close to a dozen and a half times, and each and every time that I arrive back home, our next stay is usually ‘in the works’.  The past couple of visits, especially, have been exceptional and I would definitely recommend the Wynn, if you haven’t been; though, our absolute favourite was the Aria–one of the newer hotels beside the Bellagio.  Both the Wynn and the Aria are a little more quiet and laid-back–a big draw for us.

The Wynn, located at the north end of the strip area is far enough away from high-traffic areas, yet close enough to the indoor Fashion Show Mall (I am a girl after all) and other casinos, such that you don’t feel isolated.  Within a ten minute walk, we were mid-strip in amongst all the ‘haps’, as they say.  While we usually try to take in a show of some kind, we opted out this time and just enjoyed some fancier meals out; sometimes an experience in and of itself, since we don’t normally treat ourselves.  Sure, we gambled a bit here and there, and I even won a bit, but really we just went there ‘to get away from it all’, as cliché as it sounds.  Plus, there are so many things that you can do from basic sight-seeing to shows to shopping to all-day tours.

I love the above picture taken from our hotel room because of the dazzling lights and their indescribable allure–the most probable reason that we end up there a few times each year.  Maybe we’ll see you around?!
