My Little Tour of America - Las Vegas

The final city (booo!) on my tour was Las Vegas.

It’s quite a surreal place, all those mini ‘cities’ within walking distance from each other. It really is like being in a different world. 

The casinos are like something out of a film, girls in what I called 'casino attire' walking around taking orders for drinks, selling cigarettes and cigars from a tray and then you've got the high stakes $100,000 minimum bet rooms – I often walked past wondering who might be hanging around in there!
The law in Las Vegas states you can smoke in any area there is gambling which, although I don’t smoke, didn’t really bother me. 

I had a little gamble myself – put $1 in a machine and won $25. I instantly claimed my voucher and cashed it while I was up!

I stayed in Bally’s which was basic but lovely, our room was huge and looked out over Paris and Bellagio. The Bellagio fountains are fabulous!

Unlike a lot of 'resorts', in Vegas you can wander through all the hotels as they all have casinos, shops and restaurants. I couldn’t possibly name all the hotels I visited but here are some of my favourites…

Las Vegas is like nowhere else I’ve been.
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit, it was rather hot (a mere 30 degrees) and was very busy as it was Memorial Day weekend but this just added to the crazy atmosphere.
