So back in May, me and my boyfriend took a trip to America. I have been to Las Vegas before (see blog post here) and I really wanted to go back with him as it's one of my favourite places, and he has always wanted to go, and we also fancied going to New York. We have been planning the trip for a couple of years and last year we thought right, lets just book it! We booked it ourselves through Expedia and Travel Republic, which I was really happy with because we got such a good deal!
Because I felt like it was sort of a once in a lifetime trip to go to both places, I took a ridiculous amount of photos! So i'm going to do maybe a couple of days at a time.
We arrived in Vegas after a 10 hour flight at around 2pm. As we didn't want to get jet lag we tried to explore for a bit and get something to eat. We lasted until around 10pm after having no sleep for around 24 hours haha. We stayed at the Mirage which we loved, and the location was really good too. Each hotel is like a resort on it's own theres so much to do in them, restaurants, bars, theatres shops, our hotel even had a zoo! and obviously casinos. I would recommend paying extra for a strip view as it's an amazing view day and night.
The next day we woke up really early and went to explore! We went to the Las Vegas Sign, the M&Ms Factory, breakfast at Denny's (mmm pancakes!), Caesars Palace, Bellagio, MGM Grand & New York New York. I would recommend the Deuce bus, as taxis are so expensive and there is a lot of walking to do, it costs around $8 a day and its defiantly worth it if you want to do a lot of exploring.
We went to eat at the Hard Rock Cafe, the views of the strip were amazing from there!
