A Little Las Vegas


We saw very little of Las Vegas on our Vegas road trip in January. The outdoors were more appealing to us that was why we spent daylight hours in Zion one day and in Valley of Fire on another day day (post coming).

Surprisingly I only took a handful of shots, mostly while we were driving out of the city. I did catch beautiful sky though.

We stayed at Exalibur on the Strip.

It's an older hotel and its age is showing, but it was clean and comfortable. This was my view from my room.

On the day we drove to Zion, the sky in Vegas was simply lovely.

After dinner one night we window shopped at the Miracle Mile shops, walked the Strip a bit, and went to see the aquarium at Treasure Island.

And into the night, we took pictures of what Vegas makes Vegas.

  20. I've only been to Vegas once, Maria, and that was when I was pregnant with Amy back in 1972. I had morning sickness the entire time but we had free lodging and used it as our jump-off to go to the sites around, like Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon, etc. If I ever go back, I'm sure I'll be short of eyes. The thing is, however, that you see so much of it already because of all the movies or TV shows filmed there. I'll probably just take your word for it via your own wonderful images! :)

  21. Great shot of the windows! I don't blame you for not seeing much of LV if you have the Zion park. I would much prefer the latter as well.

  22. Thanks for your kind comments on my post and thanks for sharing your great collection of Vegas photos, I agree the great outdoors provides lots of natural entertainment

  23. Those were beautiful shots! And now I know what you were talking about on my Venetian Macau post. The Venetian - Vegas is more beautiful! :)

  24. It's fantasy land! Fun to photograph though. We stayed in the Excaliber Hotel with my son when he was young. Las Vegas is ever changing!

  25. Hi Maria, I don't blame you for seeing less of LV during the day. It's smart of your to head our to nature during the day. I would have done the same. But you captured great images of LV at its best - at night. Love your sky shots though.
