Tying up loose ends

As this is our last full day in Las Vegas, we wanted to use it to tie up the loose ends. Or, so to say, we wanted to do the things we did not get to do in the past few days.

First off, there were a few hotels we didn’t visit yet, like the Monte Carlo Hotel. Even though this hotel has grandeur all around on the outside, the inside is a little less grand. It isn’t ugly, but it is less nice than the outside suggests. I don’t know why, but it is just the feeling we had strolling through the areas available to the general public.
As today is again a really hot day, being inside does count.

Even though it is quite early in the day, we just had to get on the roller coaster at the New York New York Hotel. However bumpy, it actually is a good ride! With really tight turns and a good amount of speed it makes for an interesting roller coaster, yet it is, like all things in Las Vegas, a little expensive. The coaster runs on the patio of New York New York, and the start/finish is inside an arcade hall. Good fun!

As Las Vegas has not always been this big, and all the fun has not always been centred on The Strip, we took a trip to Fremont Street. That is where the old city centre is located and where he olde Hotels and Casinos like the Gold Nugget are. As things have to get more interesting as they are situated further from the Strip nowadays, they have put a massive roof riddled with LEDs over the full length of 2 blocks. At night, these are lit and they even have shows!
As we arrived at Fremont somewhere in the afternoon we agreed to go back and see for ourselves how it looks in the dark.

That meant we had some time to kill. As we are in Las Vegas, there always is something to do. We chose to relax and go see the pool. Just chilling with everybody hip and happening at the Bellagio. I can only say it is lovely!
