Trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon

Last month I took my friend Adam to Las Vegas for his bachelor party. It turned into being a 5 day vacation with a bachelor party on Saturday. It was my first trip to Las Vegas and anywhere in a different time zone. We stayed at the Excalibur hotel which is a giant castle. For his bachelor party we went to Old Vegas and ate at the Heart Attack Grill and then had a VIP table at this really cool bar called Insert Coins. It’s a bar, but instead of showing sports and news on the TVs they show video games that people can play. The VIP table came with 2 TVs and choice of any 2 video game systems. It was a really cool bar for my friends and I to be able to relax and enjoy our selves.

Las Vegas as a whole was amazing. I would describe it as a Disney Land for adults. Where attention to detail is everywhere. Nothing is over looked and nothing is spared. There was always something to do, something to eat, and something to drink at all hours of the day. It’s a little sad to see people just sitting there losing their money, but its their choice to do it. There were tons of families and young kids there and I don’t think I would ever take a kid there. We did a couple of shows, The Price is Right Life and Penn & Teller.

We decided that we didn’t know the next time we were going to get to that part of the country again so we caved in and took a tour of the Grand Canyon. The views were spectacular. Such depth and distance, such a wide verity of colors and shades. One of the most amazing places I have ever seen. Completely different ecosystem from up here in New England.

Overall it was amazing amazing trip and too many things to do crammed into a few short days. I’ve added a few pictures and if you would like to see more you can see some after the jump (at some point I will add descriptions of the pictures).
