Beauty On The Strip

One particular aspect of Las Vegas that I truly enjoy is all of the beautiful architecture. As I noted previously, my husband, Neal, likes to call the hotels of the strip museums because there are so many wonderful things to look at. If you like fine art, architecture, and exploring, wandering the Strip with the decision to just appreciate the structure and beauty of the different hotels and casinos, can be a lot of fun.

It is hard for me to choose one particular casino/hotel that I find the most interesting. I have a very strong appreciation for the Bellagio because this hotel has a gorgeous Dale Chihuly installed in the ceiling of their lobby. Dale is one of my favorite artists because his glass is so beautiful. If you like his work, you can also find one of his galleries located at 3600, South Las Vegas Boulevard. You will see his pieces in some of the other casinos and hotels as well. Aside from the Chihuly; the Bellagio also has their fountains and conservatory which are very much worth viewing.

Another casino and hotel that I love is the Venetian. They have their gondolas, and beautiful building exterior. I love the frescoes on the ceiling. There is so much to look at within and outside the Venetian. It is definitely worth a look.

You cannot go wrong wandering through the Luxor or Paris. Every casino has their own theme and they are designed accordingly. Take pictures, have fun, check everything out. If you like art I would suggest photographs of your favorite views and then creating a tabletop album out of the photos. Your family and friends will love looking at all of the interesting things you saw.

Check Out The Bellagio Fountains

When visiting Las Vegas, there are so many beautiful things to see. A person could spend weeks in Vegas and never run out of new things to see and do, providing they look further than just gambling in the casinos. Something I could never get enough of, (you guessed, it has to do with water) is the Fountain show at the Bellagio.

You need to see this show up close, and many times, because it changes frequently. The Fountains are synchronized with lights and music that will draw you in and make it hard for you to walk away. If you stand on the bridges or walkways surrounding the show, you will even get to feel the spray of the water as the Fountains move with the song.

The show has different running times, dependent on the day of the week. Daytime hours have it running every thirty minutes. At night the show runs every fifteen minutes until midnight. It’s worthwhile to see during day or night. You can get great pictures no matter when you watch. The Fountains are set to music by artists such as: Katie Perry, Michael Jackson, and Frank Sinatra, for a decent mix of old and new.

I highly recommend, if it is at all in your capability, to get a room with a view of the Fountains. As I have noted in a previous article, certain rooms at Bally’s allow you to sit in the window and just watch the water Fountains go off all night long. There are plenty of other hotels on the strip that will allow for similar views, so book yours today, for a fun romantic evening.
