“Bright lights city gonna catch my soul, gonna catch my soul on fire!”
Vegas in 4 days!
In August 2018 my husband & I had gone for our anniversary. Paying a total of $650, including hotel -Circus Circus though Groupon, air through cheapoair.com & rental through Turo app. Booking through google I have noticed is pretty easy & cheap. Google pulls through all websites & if you have a gmail account, it will automatically save in your G Calendar. We also went again in October for his birthday, we only had to pay for air & rental. The hotel was free due to winning a free stay in Orlando, FL & Las Vegas, NV on the radio.
*The free stay was at a timeshare, it was free but, we had an option of listening through the presentation of the timeshare. If we listened we got more free things, we opt’d out.
The best time to visit Las Vegas is from early March to late May and from mid August to mid November. During these times, you’ll find great deals on hotels & airfare. The best car rental app is Turo, we use that no matter what state we go in. We used Turo when we had gone to California. Must say much cheaper. Anyone under 25 renting there is a $100 insurance fee, FYI.

While we were in Vegas for our anniversary, we did get to experience Criss Angel: MINDFREAK! Truly was a good show. I do recommend anyone traveling to Vegas, I suggest a show. Especially a Cirque Du Soleil Show!
