After experiencing Las Vegas for the first time this summer, I figured I would give you the good, the bad and the ugly guide to the "Fabulous Las Vegas".
Amazing hotels. It seems one is always trying to "one up" the next, which means they are all simply incredible.
Great Food. I am not normally one for buffets, but Vegas does this well. We received some great advice from our Blackjack dealer (Alex) the first night....NEVER eat anywhere on the strip that is not fine dining (i.e. in a hotel). So, we played it safe and ate in the hotels and buffets are everywhere. In our hotel they had a breakfast buffet that had eggs, red velvet pancakes, prime rib, sushi and a full dessert bar! That is just the beginning. I have never seen so much food in one place on display.
Phenomenal Return on Investment. You can double, triple and make great money QUICK. On the last night we were there I bet all the chips I had in roulette and tripled my money in 2 minutes!
Lack of Sleep. Vegas is always open. They never close up shop and when you are inside you can really lose track of time. Bottom line, come prepared to not sleep and leave needing a vacation from your vacation.
Return on Investment. Sometimes you see a "phenomenal" return on investment. Most times, the casino sees a better return. When your are losing every hand and you think your luck is coming back, it's not. WALK AWAY.
It's all for fun though, and fun is exactly what we had!
