I had read about Vegas, I had seen pictures of Vegas, I had watched many movies about Vegas, but I had never imagined that I would ever visit Vegas. It wasn’t until I saw the lights of the huge city from the plane that I believed I was actually going to be landing in Las Vegas. The airport was a trip in itself and it took more than an hour to gather our luggage and get to our hotel. Even though it was midnight and we were tired, we quickly left our bags in our room and started to look around.
We wandered aimlessly though casino after casino, all the while amazed at the lights, the food, the opulence and, of course, the sounds of winning machines. We spent the whole night, as well as the next three days, trying to decide which attraction was the best. Though much of Vegas was unforgettable, the most memorable were the dancing waters in front of the Bellagio hotel; it was so calming in the middle of the chaotic Vegas strip. We went back a few times to watch it. We also loved the light show on Freemont Street, and riding on the top of the double-decker bus on the way back to our hotel was a lot of fun.
The highlight of the trip was attending the Wayne Brady show. He acts much the same as he does on the famous show, “Whose Line is it Anyway? ” He asked for volunteers from the audience and I didn’t raise my hand; I sort of regret that now. It was still one of the most memorable vacations I have ever taken. The word vacation always suggests that there would be some relaxing and resting on the trip. I saved all of the my resting for the flight home and even though I didn’t get a lot of sleep in Las Vegas, I came home feeling as though I had a well-deserved break; what a vacation!
