My Top Picks for Las Vegas

by Trish Utter

Vegas-Strip_WEBThis was the first time we had visited Las Vegas and we had a blast. The airport is right next to the city making the trip to the ‘Strip’ stress free and easy. As you come in for a landing you immediately see the oasis of landmark hotels surrounded by the natural beauty and wilderness of the land.

Pink Jeep Tours

Pink-Jeep-Tours_WEBWhen I arrive in a new place I like to get my bearings by going on a tour. Pink Jeep Tours pick guests up right from their hotel. These pink Jeeps are high up off the ground. Passengers sit in luxury as the tour guide comments on the sights. The first trip we did with them was their Las Vegas City Tour.

The Strip sparkled with lights as we passed all the amazing hotels. We stopped at the famous ‘Welcome to Las Vegas’ sign and visited the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop from the TV show ‘Pawn Stars’ and had a light dinner nearby. Then we got to spend time on Fremont Street that has thousands of lights strung across it making you feel as if you are in a glittering tunnel. Here we watched street performers and had our pictures taken with show girls and impersonators. I was surprised at how clean and orderly Vegas is. I could not believe we had seen so much in only our first day.
