Casino Royale on The Strip

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek

~ The Strip ~

The Strip was a lot of fun. Lots of neon lights and hotels. Lots of events and shows. There was more to do than anyone can squeeze into a week or two. There was a lot outside the Strip too. You don’t have to be a gambler or sinner to enjoy yourself in Las Vegas.

I was sad to see that the fountains at the Bellagio weren’t working this time around. Looks like they were working on them. We passed the Treasure Island display and saw the ship move across the water. We briefly entered the Riviera looking for a Pizza Hut. It was okay. The Hilton didn’t impress us either.

We previously visited the Excalibur hotel, and thought it was nice but not great. The Paris seemed very nice. I heard that the Mandalay Bay Hotel had some type of shark reef exhibit but we didn’t get a chance to go there.

I’m sure that there are hotels to meet everyone’s tastes in Vegas.
