Las Vegas Travel Guide: Adventure Of A Lifetime

Since last week hubby and I have been actively searching for perfect destinations and planning our summer vacation in 2016. It's a very exciting thing but also can be quite challenging: picking a place (or places), finding affordable flights, planing the activities, calculating the expenses, etc. Plus, there are just so many options! We both agreed we want to go across the ocean to North (or South) America (the actual places are still in the process of being figured out). While some say that spontaneity is the essence of pleasure - and I agree with that - it is thrilling to do something on a whim, yet the perfect trip is the one planned out well. That way you are not going to miss out on anything. No one wants to come home from NYC and realize they haven't been at the Times Square. Itinerary plus adventure makes it all happen. By planning it all, you still have to leave room for the impulse decisions and have fun with it. It's what we did when we chose Las Vegas as one of the three locations for our honeymoon. It is an absolute must-visit location and I hope this guide shows you the city in the light it deserves to be presented in. 

If you follow me on Instagram you probably have seen this photo. Let's be honest, we all want the winter to end (that's IF it's winter now where you live). And what is more perfect on a cold winter evening than looking through your pictures from a holiday in a hot climate while sipping your hundredth cup of tea and planning what to watch next on Netflix. That's what I did and this post was born. It wasn't easy to choose one location but I am sure I will share our other adventures with you guys in the future. Meanwhile, I am giving you a LAS VEGAS TRAVEL GUIDE.
After two flights and an amazing week in Cabo San Lucas, we landed in Las Vegas. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't humid (#yas) but boy, it was HOT! Vegas is located in the middle of the Mojave Desert and it sure feels like it. It is roasting hot! You walk insane mileage while you're there (will explain soon why it's the case) and a good bit of time is spent outside. Drinking plenty of water is an absolute must. There are many cases of severe dehydration some people may experience, especially if they have never been in a similar climate. Have you ever had to breathe over the boiling pot? Air in Vegas is pretty much like that in temperature BUT there's no humidity, only the heat. Always carry a bottle of cool water with you and chill in the perfectly air-conditioned (and absolutely gorgeous) hotels. Why hotelS and not A hotel? It's the next tip ;) P.S. We never drink Coke at home, especially a 2l one in one go lol.

It's not a revelation to anyone that Las Vegas is also called Sin City. It's got its name because there are various adult attractions available there, including gambling, public drinking and the services which I won't even mention on the blog. My take on it is everyone makes a choice on their own. You can make a "sin city" out of any place depending on your social behaviour. You can have the time of your life in Vegas without clubbing and downing those drinks like they are water. My hubby and I experienced Vegas as one of the most entertaining places on the planet and enjoyed it to the fullest without a single drop of alcohol. Remember that you always have a choice.
If you are familiar with The Entertainment Capital of the World (as Vegas labels itself) in one way or another (gotta appreciate the knowledge we have from all the movies shot there), you have probably heard of The Strip. That's where everything happens and everything IS. The Las Vegas Strip is a 4.2-mile (almost 7km) long stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard South. Humongous hotels, breathtaking resort properties, massive casinos and shopping malls - anything and everything you can possibly imagine is all there! That's the reason Vegas is impossible to describe. Because how do you describe a hotel which has a river inside (The Venetian), a hotel which is a copy of the Eiffel Tower (Paris Las Vegas) or a hotel which occupies the territory equivalent to 7 football fields (Caesar's Palace)? 
{photo taken from the helicopter ride we took overlooking a part of The Strip}
 {The Venetian}
All the hotels are located close by and some are connected so that way you don't have to go out into the heat. Each hotel is open to public and is like a mini city on its own. Each has an absolutely gorgeous and unique style. The Venetian is probably one of my favourite ones. That's the one with the river running INSIDE the hotel (I mentioned it above) and you can even take a gondola ride - again, INSIDE the hotel! There are also many restaurants at each resort, lots of shops and attractions. One thing you also have to remember - after Vegas you will feel strange staying in any hotel because you will get used to casinos being everywhere: in the lobby, in the hallways, on the floors. 
{Caesar's Palace}
Vegas hotels are designed to a perfection. Every bit of the exterior and interior can be described with 1 word - 
{Paris Las Vegas}
Channeling my inner Parisienne
{Aria & Excalibur}
Aria is stunning in its mirrored glass ghost-like beauty.
And can you believe the look of Excalibur Hotel & Casino? It's a castle!! O.o
{New York New York}
It's hard to even imagine that those are a few of the stunning hotels on The Strip. The interior will blow your mind.

There are hundreds of shows happening live in Las Vegas every night - the choice is endless. However, in my opinion, it is a 100% must to catch one of the many Cirque De Soleil performances while you're there. They put on an unbelievable show and, depending on the production, might involve the audience in it! My hubby was sitting and whispering "Please, not me, please, not me" a lot haha. We went to see Mystere and it was amazing!
If you are not into the shows, there are other activities you can enjoy: pools, spas, roller coasters, shopping... There are also chapels if you're planning on getting hitched Vegas-style ;) And chocolate... lots of chocolate.
$33.6 million sculpture Tulips at Wynn & Forever Grand Wedding Chapel at MGM Grand
I knew I was in trouble (or chocolate paradise?) when we came across this massive Hershey store. 
I am crazy about Reese's!
 Delicious Statue of Liberty Vegas-style: left one made of jelly beans, right one - milk chocolate. Mmmm...
Can't forget about shopping! Las Vegas has ginormous shopping malls and outlets pretty much in every hotel. 
By ginormous I mean you would need a few days to do at least one of them!
My hubby got me my very first Michael Kors in Las Vegas as the first present to me as his wife. He is the best! 
I cried. 
I literally cried walking out of the store because I was so excited, overwhelmed and most of all - thankful <3

Just like visiting Empire State is a must-do in New York or Beverly Hills in LA, Bellagio fountains are not to be missed. During the day there is a show every 30 minutes (with a new song and new water "choreography") and from 8pm up until midnight there is one every 15 minutes! Each display is out of this world! Whoever does all that is a genius. A few of my favourites are: Billy Jean by Michael Jackson, Hey Big Spender and God Bless The USA.

{image from Fountains of Bellagio - I had to share the look from the above as we couldn't take this one ourselves}
Wow, right?

Last but not least, this is my favourite memory from Las Vegas. Go grand... As grand as the canyon! That's right, you can make it a holiday of a lifetime and book a helicopter ride over The Strip, to Hoover Dam and final destination - Grand Canyon. We booked ours with Sundance Helicopters (make sure to visit their website as they have the most beautiful video on the main page) and we couldn't be happier with the service. We were driven from our hotel to the helicopter flying station where they took us through all the safety procedures, measured our weight (quite an embarrassing part for some, but hey, safety first) and gave us a sticker with our names. Then we were introduced to our pilot who happened to be the sweetest guy ever. The take off, the flight and the landing couldn't be more smooth. He talked us through everything and made sure we got to capture and soak in all the beauty. Grand Canyon is absolutely GRAND. I am so happy hubby and I did it together - it was an experience we will never forget.

 Super noisy inside so headphones were a must. It was such great fun!

We got to walk around, take lots of pictures and also got a lovely lunch. Our pilot reminded us about safety: watch out for spiders and rattlesnakes. It's no surprise I was terrified haha. Thankfully we didn't come across any. Whew!
Happy & excited honeymooners :)

That's it for this adventure.
Money saved on the wedding was so worth it in making our honeymoon 
an adventure of a lifetime :)

To say that I LOVED Las Vegas is an understatement. 
Hopefully you loved it too thanks to this little guide and my own experience.
Sending positive vibes your way with the hope you get to visit it as well one day 
(if you haven't yet).
It is worth it!

This is my personal experience and it might differ from the one someone else might have had.
Hope you liked this post and it got to warm you up a bit on this cold winter morning/day/evening :)

Have you ever been to Las Vegas?
If yes, what did you like the most about it?
If no, what did you find the most interesting and exciting?
Hope you are having a GRAND week, lovelies! ;)


  1. Ah I loved Vegas! We went there for New Years 2015, and unfortunately it was the one time it snowed (of course!) You'll definitely do a lot of walking! Did you guys visit Old Vegas as well? We stayed in the Westin just off the strip near the Flamingo and I think it was the perfect place because it's right in the centre yet out of the way a teensy bit (which was nice for New Years!)

    One thing we didn't get around to was visiting the Grand Canyon- it was just too far for a Car drive and due to the unusually cold weather it might have been closed, but we did have a tour of the Hoover Dam and it was absolutely amazing!

    Great post- I really would love to go back, especially on a Honeymoon! It's such an interesting experience like being in another world!

    Lindsey Elyse | lindseyginge

    1. I can't believe you were there when it snowed, hon! Wow! lol
      I'm sure you loved it regardless :)
      Visiting Grand Canyon is such an icredible experience. I hope you get to do it next time you go there - such a good excuse to visit again ;)
      We didn't go to the Hoover Dam but planning on doing that next time. Definitely will visit Vegas many times more, I'm sure :)
      We went to NYC, then Mexico, after that Vegas and finished our honeymoon back at New York again. I wish we could repeat that again some day soon - just need to win in the lottery haha :D
      Thanks for a sweet comment, hon.

  2. Such a fab post! Youve made me miss Vegas so much right now haha!! Definitely have to go back again in the next few years! My boyfriend and I spent a few days here during our America trip for Christmas 2015z Unfortunately we never got around to the helicopter ride but I think next time we go we have to make sure we do it. We just loved it there; it's just like another world. Amazing. We were originally booked to stay at the Venetian, but got upgraded and stayed in the adjoining hotel, the palazzo which was beautiful.
    Yes we too did a lot of walking! You don't actually realise it at first but yeah it is huge haha.. As for shopping it's another experience in itself. So pleased you got a MK bag I was gunna get one but for some reason decided against it!
    Great post hun..

    Love Hannah xx


    1. The Palazzo is gorgeous - that's amazing you guys got an upgrade woohoo! Definitely go on a helicopter tour to Grand Canyon next time, hon. You will love it so much - isn't it such a great excuse to come back to Vegas? ;)
      I am in love with my MK and it was a limited edition design. Hubby just went ahead and got it for me. I am super thankful! I am not high maintenance one bit so that was a massive treat for me :)
      Thanks so much for a great comment, Hannah! Hope you get to visit Las Vegas soon again (I hope I will too,babe)!

  3. Viva Las Vegas! Oh my gosh I hope you had a great time! I went when I was 15/16, I can't even remember! But it was so much fun and I remember all the walking, shows, and the HEAT! But overall it's somewhere I'd liked to go again with friends, and just have a good time! The Las Vegas strip is like no other place! It's crazy fun! xo

    McKenzie | therosynook.com

    1. It is such a unique and amazing place. Truly the city that never sleeps and where the fun never ends :) I couldn't even imagine how much I would enjoy it. I always thought it was the place for those who love to party like crazy but thankfully there's sooooooooo much more to it. It's super lush and lux! :)

  4. Vegas is home and I still haven't been to the grand canyon, lol. The nearest point is only two hours away, but I've just never gone. Then again, I've never had a desire to see it, but maybe I'll go one day!

    Yeah that dry heat is no joke. On the day I moved to Vegas it was 116, lol. I like it a lot better than humid heat, though. Our 118+ days may zap my energy, but they feel better to me than a day that's 70 with lots of humidity, you know?

    I'm so happy you enjoyed Vegas! I love my city so much, and it always warms my heart when people get to experience the magic. I always tell people Vegas spoils you, and once you live there it's hard to ever enjoy living anywhere else. It truly is a phenomenal place.

    Which was your favorite hotel?!


    1. Isn't that like an unspoken rule hon - whenever you live somewhere you don't do any sightseeing even though there might be some incredible places around you?! haha
      Most of my friends from NYC have never been to the Empire State Building :) So yeah.

      Awww, must be soooo great to call Vegas your home, babe. I love the fact that it's dry! Even if it's boiling hot, it's no Florida lol.

      I loved it there, sweetie, and we definitely plan to come back again. I should keep you posted when it happens and we could meet up ;) It's such a one-of-the-kind-and-one-in-a-million type of a place.

      As for the favourite hotel... it's impossible to choose the favourite! :) I honestly loved them all because they are SO different! Aria is stunning like a ghost made of glass, The Venetian & The Palazzo are so high-class, Caesar's Palace is incredibly impressive, then there's also MGM Grand which is a fab green monster lol. Can't choose! lol
      Do you have a fave one? ;)

  5. Loved this post so much Nadia :) You've made me miss Vegas a lot haha! It's only about 4 hours away from LA, so I always go to Vegas for short little weekend trips, but even though I'm a frequenter, it still always feels so fun and magical each time I'm there!

    And I know what you mean about the heat! D: Vegas is notorious for being hot, so the only way to stay cool is to either stay in the hotel, or go hang out in the pool!

    So happy that you and your husband got to experience Las Vegas for your honeymoon <3 Really enjoyed this guide, and hope you're having a great week!

    XO, Elizabeth

    1. Thanks soooo much sweetie, it was such a unique and incredible experience, especially since we did so much while we were there :) Just had to make the best of it! ;)
      Aww, that's incredible you live only 4 hours away. I'd be there every weekend girlie lol. Can we pls come with you next time :D
      A week there was perfect as we just flew from Mexico and then after Vegas were back to reality in NYC. Best vacation ever :)
      Have you made any plans as for summer holiday, hon?
      So glad you loved this guide and hope your week is going really great, sweetie!

  6. I haven't been to Las Vegas and don't see myself going there anytime soon. As long as the kids are still small, I don't think they would fully appreciate it, and me and Mr. Loca wouldn't be able to enjoy ourselves the way we would want to with bed time at 8 pm...
    But it is on my list of places to visit once the kids are older. Or once they stay with the grandparents for a week and we are actually off!

    Linda, Libra, Loca: Beauty, Baby and Backpacking

    1. Actually, surprising enough, there are couple with kids there. Vegas is truly suitable for everyone. It's not just the city that is known for its "inappropriate" kind of "fun". There are so many amazing child-friendly things activities you can do there. It all depends on a person and family. I hope you get to go one day and experience it to the fullest, Anne!

  7. Awww I would love to visit Vegas! When we first were planning our honeymoon, LA and Vegas were on our list. After all we decided on NYC and Florida, and enjoyed the trip so so much! But I still want to travel to the West coast someday too! Vegas might not be my dream holiday destination, but I'd love to see the place. And Grand Canyon then again is something I definitely want to experience! That flight would be so amazing.
    Loving the pics babe <3 you and your hubby look so perfect together! :)
    Ps. I was looking at train tickets from London to where you live and oh my goodness they were expensive :O BUUU! Hope you're having a lovely week hon<3
    Emma xxx


    1. NYC & Florida honeymoon sounds perfect, honey :) I'm sure you guys had an amazing time together! I hope to do a post soon on our Mexico part of the honeymoon. I love everything travel-related woohoo :)
      I hope you get to go to the West Coast one day soon and pls pls pls do visit Las Vegas, sweetie. You both will LOVE it! Come back to this guide, message me and I will let you know what you should absolutely do and what to avoid haha.
      p.s. Awww, that's too bad about those train tickets. Not fair, right?! Well, I hope you get to come back to the UK soon, my lovely friend! Would love to meet you in person :)
      Have a super great rest of the week, hon! Keep exploring & have fun in London Town :D

  8. Oh, what a place. I never have been there, but looking at your photos I would love to see it in person too.


    1. You would LOVE it, Ramona! Hope you get to go one day, girlie ;) It's a magical place and it's pretty much impossible to explain what it's really like. I don't like how some people think it's only about clubbing/drinking/etc. It's a lush and lux kind of place and it all depends on your own social behaviour what you make of it. Hope you get to experience it for yourself one day, hon :)

  9. Wow, what a trip!! I really want to go there before I'm 25 lol

    Happy Wednesday Doll,

    1. Hope you get to visit it soon, girl! It's a very special place, one of a kind <3

  10. This honestly looks like the most amazing trip! I'm going to Florida with my boyfriend and his family in November and I'm so excited, I wish it would come sooner!

    Lauren Ashleigh xx

    1. I love Florida! Have you ever been there before? Where exactly are you going to, hon?
      Hope you get to visit Vegas one day as well :) It's incredible!!

  11. Hey love

    It us the first time visiting your blog and I really love it!

    Great content and nice pics!

    I have some ideas for collaboration between our blogs!

    Please take a look at my blog FASHIONRAILWAYS.COM and let

    me know if you are interested ;)



  12. You are very lucky to visit Vegas dear
    I would want to see it myself as well.
    Great adventure and that mountain formation looks perfect

    1. It was a really incredible trip and experience! Vegas is truly very special.
      Grand Canyon is out of this world. What a creation <3
      Hope you get to visit it one day, hon!

  13. Ahhhh so much to love about this post! I feel I am just like you when it comes to planning - I was to make sure I have everything covered and wow you certainly did! Vegas is certainly high on my list one day, I think a helicopter ride is the perfect way to see Vegas and you got some fabulous photos. It's also really bad but I desperately wanted a coke when I saw yours and the hubbys coca colas!

    Musings & More

    1. Aww thank you so much, Emily :)
      I believe that it's better to plan it out and make sure you know what to do and what to see (and actually enjoy yourself in the process) than come somewhere incredible and waste your time at the hotel room or doing very little. There is an exception: a chill beach holiday lol. Planning is the key ;)
      Vegas is such a one of a kind city, hon. Grand Canyon helicopter tour + flight over The Strip was just WOOOOOW! I hope you get to visit it one day, girlie!
      P.S. Super unhealthy on a holiday but we never drink soda at home. Those Cokes were delicious though, especially in the dry heat :)

  14. Such a good post! It looks so beautiful, I definitely will need to go there in future. Hope you had an amazing time.


    1. Thanks so much! It's an incredible place and I hope you get to visit it one day! Glad you enjoyed this post, Erin ;)

  15. Hi Nadia.. this post is so lovely and the pics are so mesmerizing...kisses

    1. Thanks hon! We really loved it in Vegas :) Glad you liked the guide and the photos :)

  16. Another WONDERFUL post, my darling! I really, really enjoy your travel posts - this one reminds me of your NYC posts, which are some of my favourite on your blog! I hope you do more of these because they really are a joy to read, hun. I always thought of Las Vegas as a 'sin city' with lots of clubbing, gambling and 'other' forms of entertainment, but after reading your lovely guide, I can see that there is so much more to it! I can't believe that there is an actual river running through a hotel, that's crazy awesome! <3 And The Grand Canyon looks absolutely spectacular, wow! Aaaand I'd happily have me some of that chocolate statue of Liberty, haha... :P <3 Really lovely post, darling, you and your other half always look so happy together and it always, always makes me smile looking at you two. :) Thanks for sharing another brilliant post, Nadia! Hope you're having a lovely week so far, and I also really hope we get to meet up sometime this year, hun! Love ya lots. <3 <3 <3


    1. Awww thank you sooooo much, my sweet Kay! I really appreciate your feedback girlie and you are so kind to me every time :) I am so glad you love my travel related posts. Aww you remember my NYC ones!! Thanks super much :D
      As for Las Vegas, those were my thoughts exactly about it. I just kind of felt like it's not even worth visiting because I am not a party person and I don't think it's nice to spend a weekend without remembering it. It's not the type of "fun" my hubby and I would enjoy. But to my surprise (hubby was in Vegas before so he knew how awesome it is, that's why he was confident booking it), there is SOOOOOOO much more to it! There are just so many things to do and it's actually even family & kid-friendly. Everyone chooses what to do by themselves, right? ;)
      Grand Canyon helicopter tour was definitely the highlight of it! It was out of this world. I really hope you get to visit it sweetie & experience Las Vegas the way we did. Whenever you know you're going, msg me and I will give you more pointers to make the very BEST of it :D
      Hope you have a super great rest of the week, my amazing friend! Definitely 100% up for a meet-up!! 2016 is and going to be super exciting and great :)
      Love ya girlie!

  17. Wonderful adventures. I've only been to Las Vegas a few times, and usually only stay no longer than 3-4 days. We enjoyed the Cosmopolitan for brunch and stayed at the Luxor, and I loved the Grand Canyon.Thanks for sharing your guide, and thanks for your sweet comment dear. x/Madison
    Travel Inspiration

    1. That sounds lovely, Madison! I really liked Luxor, so chic! Aww, so good you got to visit Grand Canyon - it's a really special experience. Thanks for a sweet comment, really glad you enjoyed this travel guide hon :)

  18. Nadia, I LOVED looking through your photos! We live pretty close to Vegas (about an 8 hour drive) and my husband and I love it there! We try to go once a year. You are right, anywhere is what you make of it and your behavior is yours to control no matter where you travel! It is very hot there, even for me and I live in a desert climate (super similar to Vegas) where I'm at now. The best time to go in my opinion is definitely late October! This was such a fun post to read! XO -Kim

  19. Your photos are lovely! The hotels are absolutely beautiful and the helicopter ride must have been epic! The views over the Grand Canyon are breathtaking :)

    Velvet Blush

  20. Wow!! This looks amazing, definitely on my bucket list!
    My boyfriends dad loves Vegas and insists that we must go when we are 21 and I'd love to. It seems like one of those crazy places that you can't quite describe to it's fullest but is just amazing!!
    Glad you had a blast hun XX

  21. VEGAAAAAS...by far one of my favorite destinations. Every time I've gone its been a different experience, even when we stayed in the same hotel for two of the trips. I can't wait for my next trip back - I totally want to hit up one of the outdoor pool DJ parties this time. Looks like you had a lot of fun! :)


  22. OMG!! I am so excited for you! It seems like the trip of a lifetime and you look like you had a blast! I have never been to Vegas, but it is on my bucket list...one day. My hubby got me tickets to see a Cirque De Soleil show this April so I am stoked about that! All those shows look so amazing! Thank you for sharing your trip with us!

  23. Looking through old holiday photos is so much fun. So often we take them, upload them, and forget about them, so I think it is really fun to look back on those memories every now and then. Love these photos so much and thanks so much for the tips. I have never made it out to Las Vegas, but I have wanted to ever since I became obsessed with CSI Las Vegas back in high school, haha.

  24. Ooh, sounds like you had such a fun time! I've never been to Vegas myself but I really want to go to the Venetian! And not that I'm a huge chocolate fan, but I didn't know they had so much chocolate, that statue looks huge. Also the Bellagio fountains that I've only seen in the Ocean 11 movies haha I feel like they're so iconic though. Can't wait to visit Vegas!

  25. Love the city!! Thanks for your guide!!
    Love from www.trangscorner.com {a lifestyle, fashion, beauty, and food blog}

  26. So many amazing photos and a great guide Nadia! Vegas is somewhere I've been dying to go for many years and I can't wait to one day get to. I found your guide especially useful as I don't do the drinking/clubbing thing either so glad to hear what an incredible time you had without any of that stuff. Cirque de Soleil is definitely on my to do list as is the Grand Canyon. It looks so incredible! Glad you had such an amazing time and so many wonderful memories xx


  27. Aww, Las Vegas is so cool! I visited the city during my exchange in LA and it was truly like in movies! <3

  28. Now I really want to visit Las Vegas! So many cool places and things to do :)

    -Leta | The Nerdy Me

  29. love your post, looks like you fit a ton of stuff in! i have yet to visit the grand canyon but i will one of these days :)


  30. These photos are amazing, hun! It looks like you had a great time in Las Vegas. Chocolate Statue of Liberty... Can we have a bite of that :)? I haven't been to USA yet, but my fiance is raving about it (he was lucky to have one month USA trip from east to west), and I can't wait to travel to USA and see all these amazing places. You should have a photo diary of these photos, it would be a good book! You two look so adorable together <3
    I hope you are having an amazing week so far, sweetie! xx


  31. Great Vegas review! My favorite part was definitely the food (Wicked Spoon, Secret Pizza, and others) + the gigantic alcoholic slushees!! I need to start making those at home :)))

  32. Such a wonderful post Nadia. Your photos are amazing and it looks like you has such a fabulous time!
    Gemma xx

  33. I was never in Vegas myself but I really enjoyed your virtual tour....I do agree with what you said about Sin city, we all make our choices, one can be immoral in the most sacred place on Earth if one has such a mind...Your photographs are amazing. I do get why you say 'hotels' and not 'a hotel' because it would be a shame visiting LV and not checking out all of them, or at least a few...and it is so great they are all open to public.

    Saving on wedding and having a great honeymoney sounds like something I would choose too. Alas, I spend my honeymoon in hospital in Split(literally two months after my wedding were spend there) but on the upper side, the view from both of hospitals in Split is quite stunning (I'm not kiding, one can see a number of islands from those points and Adriatic is always a dream). I'm often one of those people for whom the glass is always half full;)

    Helicopter ride!!!! what a fantastic idea! It is a great sensation flying with a helicopter, one can really feel one is being airborne....it is so lovely!

    Great travel post, I really enjoyed it...and judging from these photos, you and your husband did too!


  34. Absolutely beautiful pictures! I've never been to Las Vegas, but it looks like so much fun!

  35. I've never been to Vegas, but I always think it looks amazing whenever I see it. That's seriously the biggest Cola I have ever seen!

    Raindrops of Sapphire

  36. Wooow! So amazing to read about your honeymoon!! Amazing you could visit Vegas. By hearing Vegas I always think about the dirty stuff first - which makes me wanna skip going there ever in my life - but after reading your story I might consider paying a visit if I ever get the chance! Those hotels are insane, wow!! And the Grand Canyon looks surreal, so cool you got to experience that!! You're truly blessed and very lucky <3

    (And you're so pretty <3)

  37. I've always wanted to Vegas, but now I REALLY want to! I'm so glad you had a nice experience; I've heard many things (good and bad) about Las Vegas, but I'm glad you had fun! I'll make sure to check out your travel guide if I ever find myself there. ;)

  38. That looks like such an awesome trip! I would love to go to vegas one day!


  39. Lovely guide. Breath taking photos! Thank you for sharing this with us. Visit me whenever you can at http://its-dominica.blogspot.co.uk/ kisses, Dominica S.

  40. What an incredible post about Sin City! It's about an hour flight from me so I've found myself there quite a few times. Vegas is trouble ;) xx adaatude.com

  41. Even though I spent a year in California, I never made it to Vegas, but someday I'd definitely love to go. I'd love visiting the Grand Canyon even more, though!

  42. Nadia I know I've said this before, but your seriously stunning! So I'm just going to keep saying it:p haha.

    The first time I visited Vegas was with my family way back when I was little and I just remember going in the summer and how fricken hot it was just walking around. I remember we had to stop by the shops every 5 mins just so we could cool off! The 2nd time I went was when I turned 19 and well course it was a different sort of experience! Next time I visit I want to go to more shows though. I love how Vegas has a bit of everything for everyone and it's really great to see that you two got to experience Cirque Du Soleil together! Chase and I went a few years ago when they were here in Vancouver, but I bet it was nothing compared to the show in Vegas! Ahh I want to visit the Grand Canyon next time I go, I mean I think it's something everyone should experience at least once. Thanks so much for sharing ur experience and have a great week:-)


  43. I absolutely LOVE this post! Thank you for such a detailed guide to Las Vegas! I'm going there either at the end of this year or next summer so this is so useful! Love your pics too :)

    Великий каньон завораживает!)

  46. My Dad has been going on about Las Vegas for a while and I didn't really see the appeal, so this post is great! Thank you :) Also that coke is enormous, haha!!

  47. The staff here is actually competent and friendly, unlike other places with their pretentious staff guys. The event space NYC was magnificent and modern, and the seating was comfy. Truly, the food was heavenly and as a visitor I am glad for finding this one.
