And of course, eat at A LOT of buffets. Too many pictures to take of all my plates but this would be my first of the whole weekend.

During my visit, I was only able to check off 4/5 things to do in Vegas. In process of trying to complete my list, I realized that sometimes the unplanned activities were the most fun! I had no idea that were was a TON of things to do in Vegas other than just gambling! So I started to make yet another list of to do when I get to visit this place again.

List of things to do in Vegas next time:

  1. Complete my first list of Vegas.
  2. Zipline in downtown Las Vegas “Slotzilla”
  3. Take a picture of a piece of the Berlin Wall in the men’s restroom
  4. Selfie with the famous Vegas Sign.
  5. Ride any roller coaster that’s on the strip.
  6. Buy a pastry at Cake Boss restaurant.

Until next time Vegas!



Making my to do list for Las Vegas, Nevada

The Beginning to a New Path in Life: Travel and Discovery 

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.” — Lao Tzu

As I’m preparing for a family trip to Las Vegas, I wonder if I could hit a few places on the “1,000 Places To See In the United States & Canada Before You Die”

Places to visit:

  • The Four Queens of Las Vegas
    • Bellagio, Wynn, Las Vegas, Caesars Palace
  • Cirque du Soleil
  • Dining in Las Vegas
  • Las Vegas Culture
  • The Las Vegas Strip

Just only missing a few more places to complete the Nevada section check off. I’ll have to complete those trips with my life partner, James, at a later time. But until then, I’ll be at the starting point to a path with new adventures that I’ve been wanting all my life to come to fruition, travel and discovery. Although my trip may be short and to a place where I’ve been before, It will be different this time around. My mind, eyes, ears, fingers, and heart will be like discovering it for the first time in a long time.

I can’t wait to be surrounded by lively people, thunderous music, dancing waters, and sparkling fluorescent lights.

Viva Las Vegas!
