At this point I’m pretty sure you’ve all realized that we just returned from another Vegas adventure. So I figured it was about time I stop being lazy and fill ya in on the rest our our trip! We flew out of Detroit on a nasty winter morning. Blistery cold rain/snow mix, ugly grey skies…. Let me tell you how amazing it was to get above the clouds and see blue skies and sunshine!! Plus a little bit of alcohol helps too 😉
Our SLS Casino host scheduled us a complimentary stay at The W Hotel as part of our casino comp package (yes, we like to gamble). Everything started off good, they picked us up from the airport in a sweet ride and promptly delivered us to the casino. Unfortunately that’s where the good experience with them stopped. As soon as we checked into our hotel our casino host went MIA. Wouldn’t return our calls or texts, in regards to the remainder of our comp package. Funny how they will promise you the world to get you out there just so you spend money in their casino, and then vanish when you arrive. Needless to say as much as I enjoy the swanky luxury of The W hotel, we won’t be spending a penny more in their resorts or casinos ever again.
After a couple nights of being avoided by our SLS casino host we packed up our bags and decided to spend our time with the tried and true MLife group. This time around we stayed at the Luxor, and it was seriously the best choice EVER! They put us up in one of their Tower One Bedroom Suites. They are recently updated but still have the Egyptian feel to them.
Speaking of the Luxor. Did you know that Criss Angel has a show there?! I’ve been obsessing over him for what seems like forever!! We scored front row seats, and I was all geeky fan girl awkward at being so close to him. Unfortunately you aren’t allow to take photos during the show so I don’t have any pics to share with you. BUT you can find him on Instagram where he has clips from his shows. Here’s the link. I did learn that his last show in Vegas will occur in October of 2018. So if you are thinking about seeing him, I recommend booking your tickets soon.
Over the next couple days we visited Madam Toussad’s (you can read about our experience here) and went rafting down the Colorado River (read about this epic adventure here). I had such a great time I thought they both deserved their own posts ❤
We had the awesome opportunity to visit Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden And Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage.
Tickets are $22 a crack but you can get them discounted or even free if you play My Vegas Rewards Slots. It’s a serene little oasis tucked right in the middle of all the craziness the Vegas Strip has to offer. The dolphins have two huge pools filled with toys to play with. They were chasing each other, tossing balls at each other, doing basically anything possible to melt your heart ❤
The day before we left we took one last adventure outside the casino, to Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay. Similarly priced to the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habit at $25 a ticket. You can also get this deeply discounted or even free through My Vegas Rewards Slots. My husband and I had a ball at this intricately
designed aquarium, observing the massive variety of marine life. I love love love aquariums, and up until now my favorite has always been Ripley’s Aquarium in the Smoky Mountains. At this point, I’m not sure that I’m ready to say that I like Shark Reef better…but it’s definitely a contender.
I can’t wait until we take another trip to Sin City. It’s always such a fun time exploring all the hidden gems the city has to offer. What are some of your favorite things to do in Vegas?
