Last month I got to travel to Las Vegas with work and my word did I have A LOT of fun! I’ve been to Las Vegas twice before but there is something that keeps me going back! As a non-drinker, non-gambler I’m still drawn to Sin City. Maybe its the bright lights, the sense of possibility, the jingle of the slot machines or the hum of Vegas adventure. It captivates me.
While there we did have a lot of work time but we also had some play time too! My highlights include seeing the Bellagio Fountains dancing to O Holy Night, riding the High Roller at Sunset and hitting the Las Vegas Premium Outlets North for some deals!
In terms of getting there, we flew Premium Economy with Virgin Atlantic and we stayed in two hotels – The Linq Hotel which is a brand new 3.5* hotel owned by Caesars Palace. We then stayed in the largest hotel in Las Vegas, the MGM Grand Resort & Casino which was my favourite! I loved the buzz in this hotel! Previously I’ve stayed in the 3* Excalibur Hotel and Casino and this is a great budget hotel in a great location! Plus the beds in this hotel are sooo comfy!
Flying premium economy with Virgin Atlantic was also amazing and I was located in the second story ‘bubble’ of the aircraft as I call it. The service was amazing and actually my air hostess was Rodrigo from the TV Show Botched! He was so so nice!
I’ve only ever been to Las Vegas in November / December times and its not overly hot or unbearable! Its bright and sunny but not very warm so layers are my recommendation for this time of the year 🙂 A lot of pools are also closed during these colder months.
Here are some snaps from the trip – hope you like them!
Hugs & Love,
