A few weeks ago, my sister, Stephy, flew out to LA to visit for her spring break and kept repeatedly telling me Vegas is a mere 3-hour drive from Los Angeles.
"It's at least five." I'd only done this drive a few dozen times before, so it's not like I would know, but her friend Amy had recently relocated to Sin City and she had heard otherwise. We left LA around 2:30pm, and seven hours later, we arrived at Amy's home.
The big highlight of the trip was Amy scored us free entry into her place of employment, Tao Beach Club, at the Venetian. She managed to nab us a pitcher of mojitos and some Asian fusion-themed snacks and we laid out in beach chairs while Stephy attempted to subtly hint to some New York men that they should buy us more drinks (didn't work, I was like "They know Amy hooked us up. They are probably hoping you'll score them free drinks!")
For the most part, we only spent one day in Vegas. I really wanted to check out the Neon Museum, something that wasn't there since my last trip, but apparently you need reservations :-(. Next time!
We were really only in Vegas for a day, because it was bookended with too much time in my car. I attempted to convince Stephy to check out all the amazing sites such as Joshua Tree (rejected!) and the World's Tallest Thermometer (she had no choice).
And that's all I have to tell you about Las Vegas!
