Las Vegas, Nevada
LAS VEGAS! Last March I went to Las Vegas with my friend Robyn. We went over my 28th birthday. I’ve heard so much about Las Vegas, but I had never been and wanted to experience it for myself.
We stayed in the Flamingo hotel with a strip view, the hotel had a large outdoor pool, and all the hotels had casinos in them on the main floor. Over our time here, we did traditional tourist activities like walking the strip, go to Fremont Street, eat at the Bellagio Hotel and see a few shows including “O” by Cirque du Soleil.
The second half of our trip was spent traveling to iconic locations between Nevada and Arizona. On our way to the Grand Canyon we took Root 66. Open since 1926, this highway is famous for being “America’s Highway” . Rout 66 was driven by millions of drivers between Illinois and California. It is a symbol of charming America with truck stops and drive ins.
Grand Canyon National Park
The Grand Canyon was beautiful. We arrived at the south rim where we were warned not to steep too close to the edge. The amount of people who have tripped off the ledge and died at the Grand Canyon is 1 in 400, 000 visitors. We played it safe on the path and walked two hours along a man made path with other tourists around to witness this world wonder.
On this trip, I finally got to head to Arizona and visit the lower Antelopes Canyon for the first time. There is a upper and lower antelopes canyon, the difference is the Upper Antelopes Canyon is wider at the bottom, more narrow at the top, and the lower Antelopes canyon is narrower at the bottom, wider at the top which lets in more light. The lower Antelopes canyon is also longer, both are beautiful. This was a beautiful experience, and one I would recommend to anyone heading to Arizona!
