This time, the trip was MUCH more relaxing. We stayed at the Wynn Resort and I highly recommend it! The first night, we went downtown to Fremont Street, and watched the LED light display on the screen that covers 6 blocks of downtown Las Vegas. It was really cool to see the older and more historic parts of the city.
On the second day, it was unexpectedly warm so we headed out to the pool and hung out there for most of the morning. Then we walked down the strip and did some exploring in the different casinos and hotels. The Wynn was definitely one of our favorites, but we also loved Mandalay Bay, the Palazzo, the Venetian, the Aria, and the Cosmopolitan. That night we went out to dinner at an Italian place in the Monte Carlo, then walked around the rest of the strip that we didn't get to see that day. Our favorite thing that night was going to this lounge at the very top on Mandalay Bay. Mandalay bay is at the very south end of the strip, so from the lounge we had the BEST view of Las Vegas. It was awesome!! We also got to see the fountains at the Bellagio which was amazing!
On the third day(our actual anniversary), we spent our morning at the pool again and it was so nice and warm again! The pool was also heated so we even got a little swimming in. I had the best bloody mary ever there. Then we walked to New York, New York, and rode on the roller coaster there. Eric got in trouble because he tried to bring the camera on the roller coaster! Then we ate at this amazing burger bar in Mandalay Bay. I was so excited because they had buffalo burgers (reminds me of Oklahoma)! Those were some pretty amazing burgers. Then we went back to the hotel and did gifts and cards. Then we went to see The Phantom at the Venetian. It was such a great show and we both LOVED it! The effects were amazing. At one point, a huge chandelier dropped and we thought it was going to land on our heads! This is the last year they will be doing that show there, so we were so glad we go to see it. Then we went to dinner at an Italian steakhouse in the Pallazo at Del Torro. one little suggestion: GO THERE!!! The service was amazing, and Eric and I both had the best filet we have ever eaten. Ever! Our waiter even gave us free dessert. I couldn't eat it since I gave up dessert for Lent, but Eric said it was fabulous and I believe him! The next day we packed and went to the pool for a little while before we checked out.
It was so great to just spend uninterrupted time with each other! This year in residency has been so crazy tat we haven't gotten much quality time together. I felt spoiled by getting so much time with him! It was a much needed and much loved trip. We are still talking about how much fun we had. Who new Vegas could be so relaxing and romantic?! We will be going back for sure. Here are some pictures!
