Subject: Las Vegas
Different strokes for different folks! (-: I found Paris in Las Vegas to be very claustrophobic and crowded, not at all the feeling of really being in Paris. True, we had breakfast at the cafe, but it was strictly Las Vegas style. We had the same feeling at New York, New York. The Venetian was nice and interesting in design, but we found Mandalay Bay exhausting with its constant loud, noisy music blaring. I still prefer the elegance of Bellagio which is the only hotel playing classical music throughout. If you#re there in warm weather, the pool area is fabulous and we spent a good part of two days relaxing and enjoying lunch there. Also, check out Monte Carlo. No big theme, just pretty and comfortable looking and also on the strip. Many people like the Rio Hotel, although I only saw it from a distance. It is not ON the strip, but a block or two down a street from Bellagio and Caesar's Palace. It is known to be very nice and at more reasonable prices. Parking your car will be an expense in Las Vegas, so this will be a consideration too.
