Las Vegas On Less Than One Hundred Dollars

Las Vegas On Less Than One Hundred Dollars

This last weekend we had the joy of attending our son Drake’s wedding in Salt Lake City and decided to swing through Las Vegas on the road trip home. We headed out of Salt Lake at around 11:30 in the morning for the leisurely drive to Vegas. It was a bit chilly and rainy at 37 degrees so we were looking forward to the trip south. Once we left the Salt Lake Valley skies cleared and we had a great drive. Most of the holiday travelers had already made it home so traffic was great.

We arrived in Vegas around six in the evening after making a few stops along the way. We checked in to the Excalibur, which cost us a whopping $21 for the night. Once we freshened up we decided to walk the strip. We visited New York, New York strolled the cross walk to the MGM grand and enjoyed some awesome Chicago Dogs in the food court for $14. Next on the must see list was the fountain at the Bellagio. It was amazing. We had never seen them use fog in the dancing fountain show. It was truly spectacular. We watched for about 45 minutes and enjoyed three totally different water and light shows that were 100% free. On the walk back we checked out Liberace’s rhinestone studded roadster, which was totally over the top with bling in the lobby of the Cosmopolitan Casino. The grandkids were worn out by then so we returned to Excalibur to get them to bed. 

The next morning we were scheduled to check out at noon so we decided to have breakfast at the More Buffet in the Luxor. We cruised the moving walkways and settled in for a great meal and our timing was perfect so we enjoyed both breakfast and lunch selections. The buffet only set us back $17 and the food was great. We enjoyed cooked to order eggs, apple crepes, cheese blintzes, bacon, sausage, pancakes and countless other breakfast and lunch goodies. 

Once we got the bags into the car we set off down the strip with the Venetian planned as our next adventure. We found free parking in the Palazzo’s under ground garage. The Palazzo is one very nice hotel with excellent shops and the décor is first rate. Once we completed our stroll through he Palazzo we headed up the strip to the Venetian. This is like stepping into old Italy and so much fun. We couldn’t resist a ride in the gondolas so we paid our $18 and were serenaded by our guide for about 15 minutes. The hotel is spectacular and the boat ride was very romantic. Feeling the need to try out the gelato from a vender at the Venetian we ponied up another $25 for four different flavors. What can I say? I couldn’t say no!

Well the clock was ticking so it was time to hit the road and head back to reality in Gilbert Arizona. It was time to go back to work and school. We had a blast and for less than $100 we enjoyed a quick sprint through Las Vegas and its glitter and glamour.
