Two weekends ago, Tyler and I went to Las Vegas with a group of our friends from college! In total, we had a group of 13 and we had the best time!

We stayed at Treasure IslandWe mainly picked it for the price, but it ended up having a great pool and was in a pretty convenient location! We were on one end of the strip, but could access the monorail from Harrah's which was just a short 10 minute (ish?) walk away!

One of our first stops in Vegas was to Fat Tuesday. This was recommended to us by someone Tyler works with. They have alcoholic slushies and are SO good!  They were perfect to drink as we walked around the strip. They are very sugar-y though, so I could not finish mine!

Friday evening, we went to the Chandelier Lounge in the Cosmopolitan. It is a 3 story bar that sits inside a Chandelier... SO COOL! The bar itself is nothing to write home about, but it is so pretty.

Saturday we spent the day walking the strip and going to the pool. That evening, we did the High Roller. This is the enclosed Ferris Wheel ("observation wheel") that gives you AMAZING views of the strip! When we were on it, the fountains were going at the Bellagio and it was so cool to see from above. Definitely worth the money to go on it! Our tickets included unlimited drinks during our ride.

That evening, we headed to Fremont Street, or downtown Las Vegas. It was very cool to see! It is pretty much just like the strip.. full of lights, casinos, bars, etc. It was fun to spend a night here because it was quite a bit cheaper! We spent most of our night at one bar that had a really fun DJ, but also walked through some of the casinos. They have a zip line here, which was really fun to watch. However, none of us participated!

Tyler and I reserved Sunday for a date night. We went and saw KA by Cirque de Soleil. It was fantastic. The entire stage moves (kind of like how scenery moves in a Broadway musical but only this time it is the entire stage)! The theater cost $165 million to build so it was incredible. After the show we went to Battista's Hole in the Wall for dinner. It was recommended to us by more than one person and had the most amazing Italian food. Our dinner came with bread, salad, a cappuccino, and unlimited wine. (Yep, you read that right haha!)

We had a great time in Las Vegas! It is so fun to take a trip with friends, and I am glad we stayed an extra day so we could have a date night. If any of you are headed to Vegas I would definitely recommend the High Roller and Battista's! Any questions, just ask : ).

  23. Sounds like such a fun time!! If I go back with Matt (as opposed to all girls like last time), seeing a Cirque de Soleil show is way high on my list. Everyone has always said how fantastic they are!!

  32. i love vegas! although i can only take it for max 4 days then i want to get away from all of those people to peace and quiet. but the food.....YUM.

  33. It looks like y'all had so much fun! I've always wanted to go to Las Vegas!

  34. So jealous! I've never been to Vegas!!! Glad you had fun :)

  35. I did Vegas with a group of 35 over Memorial Day weekend. I still need to do a recap on the blog, but it was soooo much fun! I don't know that I would like doing Vegas without a group. We were curious about the High Roller. . .how long did it take you to ride it?


  36. sounds like such a fun trip. I haven't been to Vegas in so0o0o long!

  37. That was really cool! I think it was awesome that it was a group of couples. It made it even more fun. Cirque de Soleil has the coolest shows! I stayed at The Venetian when I went, but I remember walking to TI and watching their outdoor pirate ship show and then walking to The Mirage to see the volacano erupt. There's so much to see there. Glad you guys had a great time. Fat Tuesday is like New Orleans...I think what you had was a daiquiri.

  38. This looks like such a great time! I haven't been to Vegas in so long. Going in a group looks like a lot of fun, it's something we haven't really done.

  39. This looks awesome!!! Vegas is on my list of places to visit for sure.

  40. I'm going the first weekend of March. I am so excited. This post just made me that much more excited. We're planning on doing the high roller and the Zipline at freemont park. I wasn't looking for a nice restaurant and I think we'll try out Batista! I'll let you know how my trip goes <3
