Background: Trip from Sunday, September 8 to Friday, September 13th. Two Canadian child free 30somethings in Vegas to celebrate their birthdays and wedding anniversary. First trip to Vegas was November 2011 and have been dreaming about returning ever since. Travel background includes most Canadian cities and provinces, all inclusives in the Caribbean, Florida. Our first trip to Vegas was an experiment to see if we would like it as we are not big gamblers or big drinkers, and well we loved it so we decided to return for some more Vegas fun dubbed "Round 2".
Hotel: We stayed at The Mirage for 5 nights on the 23rd floor with strip view and also spent one day at the pool in the private oasis section.
Shows/Attractions: Cirque du Soleil One, The Gun Store, Cirque du Soleil Zumanity, Absinthe, Venetian gondola, National Geographic 50 Best Photos Exhibit, Bellagio Fountains, Mirage Volcano, Wynn Lake of Dreams.
Restaurants/Bars: Mon Ami Gabi, Gordon Ramsey’s Burgr, Carnegie Deli (x2), Le Creperie, Earl of Sandwich, Mirage Buffet, Aria Buffet, Mix Lounge, Mandarin Bar, Parasol Down Bar, food court at Caesar’s Palace, Roasted Bean at Mirage.
Miscellaneous: Seeing a rat on the strip, seeing a duck on the strip, seeing a mouse on the strip, racing cab driver, hearing a stranger fart not once but twice in a quiet lobby, thunder and lightning storm from the 64th floor, shrine outside of Caesar‘s Palace.
