Last Day Off the Strip with The Writer and Sammy!

Not to worry we have spent plenty of time touring the beautiful hotels and casinos here while we are in Las Vegas.  I have some stunning pictures of those hotels, their lobbies and their unique decor.

However, my internet connection here is very slow and I have found that I can easily share some pictues via my Smilebox link.

Today the four of us ventured up to Mt. Charleston to experience some cooler weather and see what this area had to offer.

Nice drive, beautiful scenery and at the end of the trip a lovely lodge with good food.  You can't ask for much more than that!

Here are a few pictures from our day there.

I give many thanks to Suzan at  Old Grey Mare who was so generous with her time to talk with me and give me some suggestions for side trips "off the strip".  (She lives in Vegas and has a beautiful blog and a unique/gorgeous style in general - thanks so much Suzan!) Please check her out!  Blogland is a wonderful place!

And also thanks to the random man I sat next to on the plane. He will probably never know that we went twice to Battista's, checked out Sam's Town and then ventured over to another neighborhood Casino/Resort which we really liked and would definitely return to.

Let's hope my seatmate on the return trip is equally interesting and informative - do you think he might have some pre-wedding advice?

Pretty pictures of hotels to come during the week.  They do it right here!

An exhausted Boston Lady is checking out!

It was an enjoyable trip both on and off the strip. Back to reality.
