After that we went back to our hotel for a bite to eat and gave the slot machines a try. I'm not much of a believer in luck, but nearly every single time that Taylor did the button-pushing we won something and every single time that I did, we lost. Hmmph! We ended up $20 poorer but hey, it's all part of the Vegas experience, right!? :)
With very full bellies from our dinner, we decided to walk down the street to see the fountain show outside of the Bellagio. It was neat to watch and I was really surprised on our walk at how clean the city is! I had expected very dingy, dirty streets with scary people everywhere, but it's actually quite the opposite. I was amazed at how many families there were walking around town and how nice the walkways and shopfronts seem to be. I had it in my head that it would be similar but maybe even worse than Atlantic City, which let's be honest, is pretty gross! So that was a pleasant surprise and made for an enjoyable walk down the strip.
We only stayed the one night, as that was all that our little road tripping budget could allow, and left the next morning for a few days with Taylor's Grandparents in Big Bear, CA, poorer, not richer, but having enjoyed our Las Vegas time none-the-less!
