Welcome to Las Vegas, the Disneyland for adults!
Surrounded by deserts, Las Vegas is the world capital of casinos
I’ve already been to Vegas several times, and whenever I go back there’s something different. Even if you just go to the places you already know, things will never repeat exactly like the last time. This way it’s impossible to get tired of this city!
Yes, I know, the Las Vegas Strip hotels are amazing. For that reason I love walking around the common areas and casinos. I’ve already stayed in 90% of the Strip hotels (and some downtown ones too), so I know exactly what I’m talking about.
Paris is one of my favorites not only for the hotel itself but also because of its location. This was the first hotel where I stayed in the first time I came to the city, in 2005, so I guess it was love at first sight… But there are other awesome ones too, like The Venetian, Caesars Palace, Bellagio, Wynn, the Cosmopolitan, Mandalay Bay etc.
Hotel prices vary a lot depending on the day of the week and time of the year. If you can avoid Fridays and Saturdays, holidays and summer, you got good chances of getting a great deal. Now, for instance (I just checked out of curiosity), the rate at the Paris is $59 and at the Flamingo $35!!! I’ve seen days you cannot find anything for less than $280 over there.
Of course room rates also increase when there are major conventions in town (and there’s always something going on in Vegas… This is the city of conventions and events), so sometimes it’s difficult. But here, unlike any other tourist city in the world, you have real chances of staying in a great 4-5 star casino hotel paying less than you would at a 2-3 star roadside one.
Here are my videos:
? Las Vegas Part 1:
First, let me explain that the purpose of this video was to give you a feel for Las Vegas. I was in town for the NAB Show, which is a “must go” event for the broadcast industry. Luckily, after the event I booked 2 extra days so that I could walk around and show you guys some of my favorite places.

Of course you don’t need to go out of town to eat good Mexican food! There are so many good restaurants inside the very same casino hotels I showed in the video. There are even 2 other Lindo Michoacan’s much closer! The reason I chose that one specifically is because from there you can have a great view of the Las Vegas Strip and its hotels. Really awesome.
Unfortunately that day was very windy and there was a sand storm approaching, so I couldn’t take any good picture of the view! 🙁 I only included one in the video, and it’s really grayish compared to all others… I’ve been to this restaurant quite a few times now and have never identified myself as a journalist.
Where to go shopping in Las Vegas
- Las Vegas Outlet North
- Las Vegas Outlet South
- Las Vegas Fashion Show – I didn’t talk about this place at the video, but it’s a really nice mall. It’s not an outlet though, so prices are higher. But I enjoy hanging out there too.
- All hotels have common areas full of stores and famous boutiques
Well, I hope you guys enjoyed the videos. Next year I’ll most likely return to Vegas, and I promise to give you even more ideas of how to have fun!
These are the locations featured on the videos
