Recently I had traveled to Las Vegas during my first winter break of my freshman year and boy was that a different experience from the time I went with a friend when I was ten. Between going to Cirque du Soleil shows, eating at some of the coolest restaurants, and sightseeing Vegas had treated me well! My boyfriend had just broken up with me prior to visiting Vegas so we all know the saying, “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” and you better believe I used that throughout the trip to try and forget my heartache and boy drama. I highly recommend going to Vegas if you ever feel like moving on from a guy. Go see a concert girlfriend or go pay a visit to the Men Down Under aka the local strip show for us gals and forget about that loser! This time around I stayed at the beautiful Mandalay Bay Hotel and it didn’t disappoint with it’s inclusive Aquarium and Maroon 5 concert the day before New Years Eve. Not going to lie I rated them 5 out 0f 5 stars on Travelocity as soon as I got home mainly because there were so many hottie toddy’s there for New Years Eve. The glistening lights of all the casinos, the never ending smell of cigarette smoke and bustling noise of so many people in Sin City gave me a new thrill for life that I can’t exactly explain. But if you haven’t been to Vegas yet I would definitely recommend going if not for the night life than at least for the interesting people who live and work there.
Traveling is definitely a way of life for me and my family and I am so blessed to be able to say I’ve been to many different and amazing places! Vegas holds a special place in my heart for the fast paced and twirling life that screams resistance and rebellion to me. From going to art museums to seeing the shows I now know the real meaning behind the saying ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’ because there’s no other place in the world quite like that city in the middle of the Nevada desert that thrives off of life in a place where there should be none.
