  30. Best yet...what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. At least that's what I'm told! LOL! What a fun row. It's on the top of my to do list! Love your photo of the hotel being imploded too! Sad that most of the hotels, I remember from days gone by are no longer there. We always stayed at Treasure Island when the boys were growing up. Back in the day when it was kid friendly.

  51. A few years ago, my husband and I spent a week in Vegas. Both of us had no interest in visiting there until a good friend encouraged us. Good thing we listened, because we loved it! There is so much to do and see, even if one just walks up and down the strip! We will go back, for sure.
