Las Vegas was my husband and mine's first major trip together. I'd gone to New York the December prior, and begged for him to take me somewhere first. I'd never flown, my mom hadn't either, we were deer in headlights. Luckily, we made it through everything easy peasy, and did just fine sans airport experience. So when we finally got the chance to take a big trip together, I was ecstatic!
Vegas is another place I didn't expect to like to much. I'm not really a gambler, I work to hard for my money, and I'm honestly not much of a drinker, other than the occasional social drink. But wow! Las Vegas, Nevada is about so much more than that! There's the glitz and the glam, the shows, the history, the stunning nature surrounding the city, and even right smack in it, the family friendly air (yes! family friendly! If we had children, we'd load 'em up to go to Vegas), the architecture, even culture--so much more beyond booze and casinos! While we were there I said on several occasions that I'd felt like I'd traveled all over the world in one day! The casinos are each truly a work of art, and submerse you into new worlds. Soon I'll share more in detail of our experiences "abroad" in Vegas. For now, I hope you'll enjoy a few highlights.

We packed so much into this 1st Anniversary trip, and we're hoping to make it back there soon. Would you believe I can still smell it? Yes, Vegas is covered in Jasmine, and it is so incredibly fragrant and lovely! We visited in mid to late April, and the weather was perfect, just warm enough! What are your must see spots in Vegas? I'd love to hear your suggestions for our next visit there.
