The Sitcom Group of Friends Does Vegas, Baby!

My Sitcom Group of Friends and I just got back from a vacation in Las Vegas, baby!

We stayed at New York, New York Hotel & Casino.  For most of us, it was our first time ever being in Las Vegas.  We had an absolute blast.  It was our first trip together as a group of friends, as well, beyond cottage weekends.  We had such an amazing time travelling as a group and being very touristy in what we will definitely call "Disneyland for Adults".

Everything along the strip is SO HUGE.  It takes forever to walk to the different hotels, and through them.  We made sure to see inside a wide variety of them, and they are just unbelievable.  You absolutely have to see them for yourselves to believe them!

We are fairly innocent folk, which I could really feel while in the so-called "City of Sin".  We took Quin out for a Bachelorette night, and while we did go see The Thunder from Down Under (HELLO! YUM!), we weren't really into going to clubs or decking ourselves out in the latest from "Slutz Wear Daily".  Ah well, we had fun OUR way... and we're seriously better off for it!

So, while nothing that happened in Vegas needed to stay in Vegas after our trip, we did have a fantastic time together.  We swam in the hotel pool, walked around and explored the hotels, made our way down to Fremont Street to see Old Vegas (so classic!), and gambled some.  No one came home with any big wins, but we had a lot of fun and that's what counts.  I definitely see why so many people love going back to Vegas year after year... and I have to admit, I'm already looking forward to the next time I'll have the opportunity to go back there, and maybe try staying in a different hotel (though New York, New York was a great hotel and I'd gladly stay there again any time).  Vegas is big, loud, flashy and exciting 24/7!

Have you ever been?!


  1. I've never been and to be perfectly honest, as fun as you make it sound and as fun as it does sound....I'm not sure it is a place for me - maybe a bit too crazy! LOL Great post - love your pics!

  2. Wow, I would like to go there once.
