Las Vegas: What We Did

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Here’s my last post about Las Vegas! I figured I should show you what we did besides stuff our facessit by the pool, and booze.

On our first day in Vegas, Mal and I woke up bright and early, ate a disgusting breakfast, and then grabbed iced coffees at Starbucks, which we took on our walk down the strip. We started at The Wynn and ended at Mandalay Bay, so, round trip, we walked close to 6 miles!

On our travels, we snapped photos.

Boogied down.

Met Batman. (I paid him $1 to spread his wings and make that face.)

Rode the rollercoaster at New York New York.

I thought the rollercoaster would be a complete waste of money, especially for $14 per person, but Mal really wanted to do it. Surprisingly, it ended up being a lot of fun! Mal and I screamed like little girls and laughed hysterically the entire time. The rollercoaster is totally worth the money!

Random side note: If you need a Bank of America ATM while you are in Vegas, there’s one on the 4th floor of the M&M store. Mal and I spent for-ever searching for this baby!

Eventually, our travels took us to Mandalay Bay, where we”¦

Visited the Shark Reef Aquarium!

Here you will come face-to-face with some of the earth’s most fascinating creatures in North America’s only predator-based aquarium and exhibit. See sharks of all kinds, along with sawfish, giant rays, endangered green sea turtles, piranha, moon jellies and the rare golden crocodiles. In all, there are over 2,000 animals in 1.6 million gallons of seawater.

Mal and I also saw Mystere, one of the Cirque du Soleil shows. It was amazing, and easily one of the best parts of our trip. It highly recommend seeing a Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas. Tickets are expensive, but it’s totally worth the splurge. The show was so entertaining– probably one of the best shows in Las Vegas.

  1. Looks like so much fun – I wish I had known about the Shark Reef Aquarium when I went to Las Vegas a few years ago! We took a little road trip and went and saw the Hoover Dam while we there – I thought that was really cool!

  2. Aww, poor Batman looks like he’s struggling to fill out that suit lol… I’ve only been to see Cirque du Soleil once but I was too young to remember it. I’m hoping to check out their MJ tribute show in September though (not in Vegas though, unfortunately)!

  3. If you ever need a B of A ATM in Charlotte, you can roll out of bed and walk right up to one. Literally, there is one on every corner and sometimes between corners. Looks like you had a great time!

  4. What do you do with Murphy when you go on vacation? Do you send him to a kennel or leave him with friends?

  5. If a rollercoaster is $14 a person, it better blow my socks off! Looks like you guys had an amazing time! I saw a Cirque Du Soleil show in Orlando and it was definitely worth the money. I can’t imagine how the one in Vegas was!

  6. I was wondering random question~ on the mornings you work out early before breakfast do you eat anything that early in the morning? I am having a hard time trying to figure out what works.


  7. Sounds wonderful!!! This makes me want to go back to Vegas. We saw Ka, and it wasn’t that great but I would love to see another Cirque show again. The Mystere one sounds amazing though!

  8. I felt the same way about the roller coaster at NY NY. I thought it would be lame but it was SO FUN!!

  9. Sounds like you had so much fun! I have always wanted to see a Cirque du Soleil show when I’ve been in Vegas, but we never seem to make it!

  10. That dollar was totally worth it. haha I can’t contain myself around characters, I have to touch them slash hug all over them. Is that weird?

  11. I’ve never been to Las Vegas but I realy want to go! My boyfriend is stationed in Cali and really close to the strip, so I think I need to plan a trip there! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun!
    Maybe HLS 2011 should be there 😉

  12. I totally agree with you about the Cirque Du Soleil show! We went to one when we were in Vegas last year and it was amazing; totally worth the hefty price tag!

  13. Batman is cheap!!

    I went on that roller coaster one time when I was there for spring break….after four drinks. Thank God I didn’t yack but when homeboy slice who I met the night before told me we were going on it, I was not amused. It actually turned out to be a good time. I ended up staying at NY NY another time and the one annoying thing about the pool area was that damn roller coaster.

  14. You guys definitely made out on your trip! We thought about doing the reef but it ended up being a bit out of our budget. And for a show, we saw the “V-Variety Show” at Planet Hollywood. It was fun! I think we spent most of our money on food. 😉 And roulette…

  15. Oh, I’m so envious of Mystere! I’ve only seen one Cirque show and it wasn’t that great 🙁 Sadly, I only discovered afterwards that it (Wintuk) was known for being one of the less-good shows!
