Our first time to Vegas for our 5th anniversary...
Flight left Detroit, MI on time at 8:55 a.m. we arrived in Las Vegas at 10:20 a.m. Vegas time... Got our luggage, took the shuttle bus to our hotel at the Luxor. Beautiful hotel!!!! People were very friendly. We checked in right away and stayed in the West Towers. BEAUTIFUL ROOMS!!! I suprised my hubby for our anniversary and ordered a basket with goodies and flowers which was delivered to our room right away... He was quite suprised.. We then went to grab a bite to eat in the deli; food was delicious.. They give you HUGE portions... We went to check out Mandalay Bay.. Nice hotel.. Sort of a tropical theme.... We couldn't see the beach, or wave pool since we weren't staying at the hotel, but we just walked around and checked out the gardens... That night we had tickets to see the show MYSTERE.... EXCELLENT show!!! I recommend it... Definitely worth the money... The clown in the beginning is funny... He likes to embarass the audience... We also did a helicopter ride at night.. That was fun!! I was in the front seat (scary).... We saw the water show at the Bellegio. Wonderful show!!!! That hotel is really nice and classy!!!! We want to stay there next time... We even tried to get tickets to see "O" but they were sold out... The next day we went to the other end of the strip... We did Circus-Circus, and Stratosphere hotel... We rode the BIG SHOT ride.. Scary... but fun. We also saw another show Viva Las Vegas; nice variety show... Circus Circus was fun too.. That's a great place for the kiddies...The indoor amusement park is nice.
We also went to New York New York and rode the Madhatten Express Roller coaster ride... That was fun!!! That's a neat hotel. They have good New York Style Pizza and Pink Lemonade was great (the best lemonade I've tasted). Hubby played some blackjack and won...Then we played the nickel slots.. Hubby won on that too. 168 nickels.. (Lucky) We used our winnings to gamble and for our taxi and bus fare... We stayed up late this day until 4:00 am... Time for bed now... The next day we went to MGM for breakfast, but first played a little roulette and I won $35.00.. What a way to start my morning... I turned $5.00 into $35.00.. I left after that ( We aren't big gamblers) and we went for breakfast... Line was long but moved pretty fast. Food was good... We then went to the Hard Rock Hotel

Saw the statues move... looked around in the shops... Gambled some more... No luck here...We left there and went to see the water show at the Bellegio again.. WONDERFUL show as usual!!! Our feet was killing us so we went back to the hotel and relaxed... Then went to eat dinner at the buffet...
