Vacation Time....and Yet another Place to Go!! VEGAS!!!
Sadly, the original Rat Pack is Gone, but there's
some really, really great impersonators out there. If you were lucky enough to ever see Frank, Sammy, Dean, Joey and Peter when they were alive, you'll thrill at being able to see some of the great tributes these impersonators can do. Close your eyes and go back in time. You'll think the realy guys are still with us. Oh, Yeah. Wish, wish, wish.
And we could never forget Elvis. In his prime he was one of the most handsome men alive, with a voice that could touch your heart and make you smile, cry, or swoon. And, though he's gone, there are those impersonators who can make you forget that for just a little while. Hopefully when you go to Vegas, one of them will be playing there.
Wayne Newton and Liberace have taken their leave as well, and the Magic of the White Tigers has retired. So, what is there in Vegas? How about the roller coaster atop the Stratosphere. SCAREY! The M & M Store. Oh good gracious, I never knew M & Ms came in so many different colors. And a lot of these are never in the store bought bags, so you’ll have never seen them except here in the store. Every color of purple, lavender, violet, chartreuse, burgundy, cream, dozens of pinks, reds, greens, oranges, blues, grays, blacks, …….so many varieties of every color imaginable you’ll want to grab them ALL. And who can resist M&M's anyway?
Every Casino/Hotel has something to offer besides gambling. Pink Flamingos at the Flamingo. White Tigers at the Mirage. The Luxor is like a huge, shiny black pyramid with so many adventures inside you could stay in there all day. Then there’s the Excalibur, like a fairy tale castle. New York New York, with another roller coaster. Treasure Island, with pirate ships, Cesaer’s Palace with fountains and statues that come alive, The Venetian with canals and gondolas, complete with singing gondoliers, Paris with a quaint Parisien village and the Arche de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. And of course everyone also offers shows…..singers, comedians, dancers, plays…they are all in Vegas…all you have to do is choose which one you want to see. And if you want to get away from the “strip”, head out to Hoover Dam and take a tour underground to see what keeps the dam running in tip top shape. Take a ride on Lake Mead’s “riverboat”. Rent some ATV’s and roar through the desert. Get yourself out to one of the old west horse rentals, put your boots on and experience the desert the way the cowboys did years ago. If you like museums, Vegas has those too. Wax museums, Liberace museum, Wayne Newton's home, the Casa de Shenandoah museum, Elvis museum, Star Trek museum, and on and on and on. Gangster Bugsy Siegal may have had a vision for Vegas…..Nightclubs, gambling and booze…..but the Town has long outgrown those restrictions so that now it offers something for everyone.
What? you ask. How about a Mob Museum! Want to fire a machine gun, you can do that in Vegas.
Helicopter Tours? Roller Coasters. Hike Red Rock Canyon.
Ever seen the Titantic Exhibit? How about driving a racecar!
Go the the Neon Museum, which has every neon sign ever displayed in Vegas!
Just want to Party? Okay. Gamble? Okay.
But don't forget, for all you Cowgirls and Cowboys out there, the PBR and the NationalsRodeo are here every year. November and December.
Or, if you just want to relaxxxxxxxx, how about a good massage, a facial, a different color hair, a mani and pedi? Just pick up your room phone….every hotel/casino can accommodate. Love to laze by the pool. They all have those too. And the pools in Vegas are some of the most luxurious you’ve every seen.
And don't forget the shows........ every kind...they're here! Dancing, Singing, Theatrical plays, impersonators, Cirque soleil, strippers---male and female, comedy....it's all in Vegas!!!!!!!
So what are you waiting for? Plan that vacation.
PS: If you think that roller coaster pictured above is the only ride......think again..........
