Las Vegas and Hoover Dam

Decided to stop in for a week in Las Vegas, from October 20th to the 29th, staying at the Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort. It’s a beautiful RV park in the middle of the city, close to the strip. We spent an entire day walking up and down the main strip visiting all the different Casinos. No gambling for us but enjoyed seeing all the amazing architecture, and decor inside the buildings. I bought tickets to the Elton John Concert at Caesars Palace, so excited to see him live. We had dinner at the Gordon Ramsey Restaurant before going into the show, and what a fabulous show it was. He is quite the entertainer and we loved every minute of it, especially as we knew all the old songs. Click on thumbnail to view images Continue reading

We stayed at the Tropicana Hotel on the Strip and walked down the Strip for dinner and then to the Beatles Cirque de Soleil show.

Then it was on to the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation about 17 miles west of Las Vegas where we did a short hike and enjoyed being away from the maddening crowd. Continue reading
