You know…we love Vegas, but maybe on future visits we’ll just limit it to one day. More sensory overload. Still, we had a great time, and saw cool stuff, to include the Show in the Sky at the Rio. The Strip has changed a lot, and there’s always construction of new properties going on. Hence, there are always driving issues.
So off we go today, back on the NP trail, to the antithesis of Vegas: Grand Junction, Colorado, where we’ll visit the Colorado National Monument. Going to see some bigtime mesas. Then we’ll retire to the hotel and maybe take in a movie (I’m not going to see Harry Potter until the crowds die down a bit).
Happy Finkday! Bring on the weekend. I hope it’s relaxing for all.
I agree – even 20 years ago when I was younger and more full of energy, 24 to 48 hours in Vegas and I was done. Sensory overload is exactly what it is. Today in my dotage, I probably wouldn’t last a day.
Next year you should come east – do a Civil War/Revolutionary War Battlefields circuit – visit the coasts of Maine and Massachusetts – catch a show in Atlantic City and an opera at the Met; take the New York Finger Lakes Winery Tour. And, of course, stop for a day or 2 in the Raleigh area…
Agreed! Maybe I’m just getting too old for it all, I dunno. Used to absolutely love it, but now…
And I’m letting the cat out of the bag a little early here, but next summer is indeed a New England Odyssey. We haven’t nailed everything down yet, but I will keep you posted! Truth be told, the Carolinas will likely be on another East Coast trip, but you bet you will be on the itinerary!!
