Last week, Adam and I took our 3rd wedding anniversary trip and I surprised Adam with the location! So if you were wondering how that went down, essentially I told him that we were a) taking an anniversary trip and b) he would need to pack "fancy" clothes for dates. It wasn't until the moment we got to the airport and printed our boarding passes that he knew we were going to Las Vegas! He was so stoked!
Our first day consisted of taking care of checking in and a little bit of time for relaxing and checking out the hotel. We stayed at Palms Place Suites at the Palms Casino--our Studio Suite was perfect for us! It had a great comfy and soft bed, modern decor, a state-of-the-art kitchen, hardwood floors, a large bathroom with dividers (ps. if you live with your significant other, you understand the importance of having a bathroom divider i.e. keeping the really private stuff private whenever you can--and leaving more to the imagination!), a dreamy jacuzzi bath, and a waterfall shower.
We spent our first day hanging out and watching cable for a bit--really low key! We actually don't have cable or TV at home, so it is always cool to enjoy some television when we are staying overnight somewhere! Adam put on a jacuzzi bubble bath for me and I enjoyed a glass of chilled pinot grigio from the comfort of my personal, oversized bath rub! The next morning, though, we decided to explore the city!
PS. My hubby is so dapper in dressy clothes! ;)
We explored Caesar's Palace, The Venetian, and Treasure Island on our first day! Adam and I agree that our favorite casino on "the strip," for many reasons, was The Venetian! The inside of the casino is absolutely stunning and very glamorous! OH and it doesn't hurt Adam won a $225 on a $1 slot his first try!
Our favorite food of the week we also got our first full day in Las Vegas at Bacchanal Buffet!
...and our favorite nightclub/lounge was Ghostbar at the Palms Casino!
The view from Ghostbar was absolutely surreal! This trendy lounge sits on top of the Palms Casino on the 55th floor of the building. From the second you enter the bar, it is just stunning modern decor everywhere. The lighting is perfect and sets the tone for that Las Vegas atmosphere anyone at any age can enjoy! But the best part of Ghostbar is the outside patio--if you imagine Las Vegas with just endless lights and a beautiful city scape, this is the lounge you need to visit. It was literally perfect.
...see what I mean? Perfect view from Ghostbar's patio at Palms Casino!
So the second day, we visited the NYNY, Bellagio, and Excaliber!
Our day was packed with lots of sight seeing, some harmless debauchery, and just making memories!
@ourminifamily Happy Anniversary to you and your honey from all of us at SWA! ^SW
