With just one week to go until I jet off to the USA, excitement levels are reaching ridiculous highs. I’ve already written about the things I want to do in California so, ignoring the fact we’ll be spending just two days there, here are the things that sit at the top of my Las Vegas bucket list.Watch the Bellagio fountains
Who would have thought that a fountain could be one of the biggest tourist attractions in a city? But the Bellagio manage it with their beautiful fountains that move to music. I have no doubt that you’ll find me there a lot, hypnotised by the swaying rhythms.
Visit the Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon makes an appearance on almost every list of places to see before you die out there and for good reason. It has been a national park for almost 100 years and attracts around 5 million visitors each year. With us being short of time and money, we aren’t going to make it there this time around but I have complete confidence that I’ll be back to see it in the not-too-distant future.
Be a high roller for the night
Casinos and excess: two words that go hand in hand with Vegas. One day, when I’m super rich and successful obviously, I’ll bet big. And by big, I mean more than 10 dollars at a time. Let’s face it, if there’s something I’m going to spend money on in Vegas, it’ll be on this next one…
Eat at a breakfast buffet
Like the city itself, the buffets in Vegas are legendary for being abundant and varied like no other. We are staying at the Paris hotel where the internet promises a great breakfast awaits so I am pretty excited to tuck in.
See a Cirque du Soleil show
Budget constraints mean that this is sadly out of the question this time around. But I’ll be back to marvel at the mind-boggling shows that the Cirque du Soleil are renowned for, just you wait.
If you’ve ever been to Vegas, what’s the best thing you did there?
