My Trip: Las Vegas Edition

Hey everyone! So if you follow me on my social media you’ll probably know about my love for visiting Las Vegas.

Yes I realize that it’s kind of unusual to love going to Las Vegas even though I can’t really do the major things or gamble in the casinos, but there are so many other amazing things about Las Vegas that I love!

A few days ago I was able to go for a quick little getaway and be able to just relax for a moment and get ready for the rest of my fall semester. So below I have some pictures of my trip, including an OOTD and of course my favorite part of Vegas, the food!

So go ahead and check it out! And don’t forget to check out my social media which I will leave at the end of the post and tell me what your favorite place for a quick getaway is!

OOTD:

Even though I was in Las Vegas for two days, I decided to show this look because it is one of my absolute FAVORITE dresses that I currently have and I was so excited because I found a tin wall.

Tacos El Gordo:

This is hands down one of my favorite places to visit when I’m in Vegas or San Diego (another location). Tacos El Gordo has some of the best tacos I think I have tasted in the United States, you could easily get into the double digits here and no regret it at all.

Aria & The Buffet at Aria

By far one of the nicest hotels I have visited on the strip would have to be Aria. Given that its one of the newest hotels, it is more fresh and up to date than the others and that definitely factors into the fact that it is very upscale. Although it is slightly more hidden than the others, once you get in it is absolutely breathtaking. Another plus is that to walk in you pass several museums with beautiful and unique pieces of art.

The Buffet at Aria, although I wouldn’t personally call the best (shoutout to Caesar’s Palace on that one), it is very much worth your money. Although the hotel is a little more pricey, the buffet is a lot more accessible than several others. I would say that for that price range, the buffet is the best of the buffets if you don’t want to spend a lot.

Monte Carlo

Okay I will admit, as much as I love me a good upscale and luxurious hotel, Monte Carlo is my ultimate go-to hotel when it comes to Las Vegas. Apart from it being very conveniently located, I feel like the hotel is a lot more geared towards relaxation than a crazy Las Vegas adventure. For the remaining two years until I turn 21, this is absolutely perfect for me. The BLVD Creamery is a must try when it comes to sweets, it has cookies, ice cream and gelato. It even has an option to mix and match these together! Like what else could you want?! Plus macaroons. Go for the macaroons.

Well I hope you enjoyed this “mini” highlight of my trip. And as for where I stayed this time around, due to limited room in my favorite hotel, we stayed at our second favorite hotel, Excalibur. Yes the theme is kind of cheesy for some. But they have a Krispy Kreme and Popeyes, if this doesn’t convince you then I don’t know what will.

xoxo,

Leslie
