Kelly's Korner is doing Show us Your Life - Favorite Vacation Spots. I've mentioned before that Blaine and I love to travel. My favorite spot is Waikiki and his is Vegas.
Hawaii is a VERY long way from here! It's a long way from everywhere! When we go, we like to break up the flight. We have started flying to Las Vegas, where hotel rooms can be found for cheap, spending a couple of nights and then flying to Hawaii. And stopping back there for a night on the way home. I try to take Hawaiian Airlines when we can. They are a service oriented airline. The still serve meals to everyone and it's included in the price! Their seats are fat girl friendly too!
We have been to Las Vegas numerous times. We have yet to stay in the same hotel twice. Here's my breakdown of our hotels:
Luxor - we had a junior suite with a huge tub! Loved the tub. The hotel is on the South end of the strip, so kinda far away from everything.
Harrahs - great location, nothing special
Riviera - nothing to recommend, never again!
Hilton Grand Vacations - Condo, all the comforts of home, on the North End of the strip, kinda far from stuff
Encore - Wonderful room, luxurious, awesome, North end of the strip, a little far from the bus stop
Aria - located in the City Center, great location, new hotel, nice rooms
Monte Carlo - GREAT VALUE, good location, room was good, nothing special
Bellagio - We had a fountain view room, it was AWESOME, beautiful pools, wonderful service
Mandarin Oriental - we are going to stay here in July, I'll let you know all about it!
Make time to stand in front of the Belagio and watch the fountain show. It's beautiful. The pirates at Treasure Island is pretty fun, the volcano at the Mirage is stinkin' hot!
These are our two favorite spots, so far! If you have any questions, feel free to comment and ask questions. I'll do my best!
