Travel with Me: Weekend Edition / Las Vegas

Travel with Me: Weekend Edition / Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada (B)

After a long break, I’m back with a Travel with Me: Weekend Edition post, a shortened version of my Travel With Me posts. These posts are for trips that are just a weekend or a long weekend – I share what we did, what we ate, and where we stayed with short descriptions. I hope that these posts can help you plan a short trip yourself or at least inspire you to visit a new place!

For this post, I’m sharing our very short weekend in Las Vegas at the beginning of May. We were actually in Las Vegas for almost a week, but most of our time was spent out at a resort by the lake where my husband had a conference and I worked. Saturday morning of that week we left the lake and went out for two days and one night on the Strip. I’d say we did a good job making the most of our short time there.

Vegas is known for its affordable luxury hotels, so for our one night on the Strip, we decided to take advantage of the opportunity and stay at one of the nicer hotels available. The Venetian is gorgeous! Even if you aren’t going to stay the night there, I highly recommend just walking around to see all of the dining, shopping, and decor that the massive hotel has to offer. The location on the Strip cannot be beat – it’s near several of the other major hotels and casinos that most people want to visit while in Vegas, and it is a short walk to a Las Vegas Monorail station that will get you to other parts of the Strip you may want to visit. I really wish we had had one more day there because we would have loved to spend a morning out by the hotel’s gorgeous pools. ......
