The countdown to Vegas is on….93 days and counting

26 January 2009 No Comment

That’s right, I finally have confirmed the date for my second trip to Las Vegas and that’s going to be on April 29th, 2009 exactly one year after my first trip there.

I’ve just started to get exicited about this trip today as it is -30 Celcius up here in Canada and all I can think about is the nice warm desert, the red sand, and all of the excitement that Vegas has to offer. I’m also using this trip to celebrate and as a chance to network for job opportunities.   I will have finally graduated from my College after 3 long years and there is no better place to celebrate than Las Vegas.   I’ve already spent 3-4 hours tonight checking out prices, and things to do while I’m there.

So far the best deals I can find for hotels are around $55-$60$CDN to stay at Imperial Palace right in the middle of the strip.  I’ve read mixed reviews about IP from TripAdvisor, some good and some bad but I’m really just looking for a place to crash and the location is ultra-central.  I could stay at Bellagio for $300CDN/night or IP for $55/night and have the extra $250/day for spending.

Based on my first trip there I have a better Idea of what to expect and here’s what I have planned out for the first night in Vegas:

  1. Late flight into town arrive around 10:00pm
  2. Grab Luggage at the airport and take the shuttles to the car rental place
  3. Once I leave the airport I’m actually going to turn left and head away from the Strip so I can go down to the cheap liquor store and Subway that is located at the Outlet Mall…Stock up on cheap snack and drinks for the week.
  4. Get back in the car and take a nice long cruise up the strip to around the Stratosphere and the turn around and start heading back to the middle of the strip and to the hotel we are staying at (Probably Imperial Palace for the first 4 nights).
  5. Heading over to the Bellagio for either the Buffet or Dinner at one of the restaurants.  I’ve been craving the Bellagio Buffet ever since I had the pleasure of feasting there on the last day of my first trip to Vegas.  This was the best buffet I experienced the first time I was there and if I can remember it was around $20-$25 for the lunch buffet. Probably $40-$50 for dinner.
  6. After the food I’ll see if I’m still awake and either head back to rest up for the next day or head out on the strip and see what happens.  That’s the best part of going is not knowing what could happen once you get there, you just gotta go with the flow and try to meet as many new people as possible.

I’ll be blogging more actively between now and my next trip dow to Vegas and of course I’ll be posting a lot while I’m there and once I get back.

Peace for now, Alfie11
