Ya girl is finally 21!!!
So naturally, a trip to Vegas was in line. Between shows, sight-seeing and rooftop bars, it was an absolutely action packed week. We walked a total of 26 miles, drove almost 400 miles, stayed in two different hotels and saw deserts that absolutely put Washington’s central “deserts” to shame. There’s a lot more to Vegas than just gambling and drinking your weight in cocktails. Maybe it was the change of scenery, or the three Raspberry Paloma’s I downed at the House of Blues, but I cannot wait to get back down to Vegas.
Let’s start with shows. There are literally so many shows in Vegas at any given time, you have no excuse to be bored. They have everything. Music, comedy, cabaret, cirque du soleil… you name it, they’ve got it. And if you want something free, take a trip to Fremont Street at night. You’re bound to see something to tickle your fancy, or just make you really confused. It’s great fun. I got to see my favorite band for the third time, and for the first time in their hometown. Brendon Urie still ceases to amaze me, even after 12 years of loving Panic at the Disco. We also managed to get tickets to Britney Spears’ Piece of Me residency at Planet Hollywood. She was amazing! 8-year-old me died at least 13 times in the two hours she was parading across stage in glittery lingerie.
Most people visit Vegas and just stick to the strip, and while there is much more to do there than a few days will warrant, you’re really missing out on the beauty of Nevada as a state if you don’t venture out a bit. We managed to visit three different state parks and the Hoover Dam while we were there. Next time I’m there, I’m planning on some hiking in the Valley of Fire. The pictures speak for themselves:
Also, just an added protip: let your parents take you to Vegas. They’ll buy your drinks and give you money to gamble!
As for now, it’s back to the daily grind. I’m planning on some really fun posts for this blog soon! Of course I post more on my instagram and snapchat(bridgey_boo), so if ya wanna see more, you’ll find it there!!
