Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Good Morning Vegas!
We decided to walk the Strip right down to The MGM Grand to see the Lions - pretty cold this morning in comparison to San Diego.
On the way to the Lions we went to M&M World - which is less world and more 4 floors of a shop dedicated to M&M branded goods !!
The lions were cute but it was a bit sad seeing them as a freak show in the middle of a hotel - They are only there 7 hours a day and they ship them in from a nearby Ranch and actually there are 40 of them in total so its all rotated.
We then went to the indoor gardens at the Bellagio which was very pretty all kitted out for Xmas.
Then we crossed the street to Flamingo ... to see the Flamingos. On the way Hayley thinks she saw her first 'celebrity' (used loosely) - Brooke Hogan
We then went back to the hotel and grabbed the car.
We drove to Las Vegas Downtown.. pretty sad really as its so poor and rundown. We saw all the Chapels but they looked so much grubbier than even on TV so we deceided NOT to renew our vows here!!
From seeing the bad bits we headed back up to the other end of the Strip to The Vegas sign which was pretty cool - so busy though .. they have an area you can park up to take pictures.
We then went to a huge Outlet Mall Centre in Primm about 35 miles away .. Hayley loved it - ridiculous savings though .. e.g. Hollister Tshirts for about £6
Then we drove back got some dinner - popped to the Casino floor for a bit - lost some money... and then went to bed!
Leaving Las Vegas tomorrow - Hoover Dam in the morning and then the drive to Beverly Hills!
