Las Vegas in March
If you’re thinking of flying to Las Vegas then March is a great time to go. What can I say about the place? Well, I love it. Vegas is a unique multi faceted oasis. It is well known for many things such as quickie weddings, excesses of every variety, everything from shopping, entertainment to gambling and a more risque lifestyle. I personally have never enjoyed gambling but Vegas is one of my favourite places on Earth. I can just ignore all the casinos at the front of the hotels and take from it what I enjoy, that being the opulence, the OTT settings and even it’s vulgarity has a special kind of charm that you only understand once you’ve been there.
The hotels on the Strip are magnificent. From the MGM Grand to the Luxor, the Venetian to the Bellagio, there are many to see and they are all pretty amazing.
When we went for the first time, my daughter couldn’t comprehend why we would want to spend an evening looking round hotels and she needed a fair bit of coaxing to come out. Thank goodness she didn’t miss out on what was on offer. With a full scale reproduction of Tutankhamen’s tomb in the Luxor, the best that Paris and New York can offer, a replica of Venice with canals through the hotel in the Venetian that is incredible; to say nothing of the best designer shops to be found from Gucci to Prada and with more places to eat out than you can imagine, there really is so much to see and do here. Vegas draws in the top entertainers also with Elton John, Celine Dion and Cirque de Soleil being firm favourites. For free entertainment get down to the light show outside the Bellagio. The artificial lake houses thousands of fountains and puts on a spectacular display as streams of water dance to music lit by a rainbow of coloured light.
There’s so much to see and do here but make sure you don’t miss out on a trip to the Grand Canyon. It’s about a 4 to 5 hour drive from Vegas. Man may be able to accomplish many architectural feats but what nature can do far outweighs that. This place is guaranteed to take your breath away.
I know they say that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas but Vegas seems to be a place that people either love or hate and I’d love to hear what your views are if you’ve been.
