    People who come to visit Las Vegas have an idea of what they want to do while here and what they want to see.   I just love it when a total stranger will e-mail or text me and ask my opinion on what to do and see while they are here.  I totally understand why they do it because I do too when I travel and want to know what the locals recommend.  I think I'm talking myself into taking a vacation.

    Happy Holidays Everyone!

    Oh my goodness for the longest time we were bombarded with all our politicians knocking each other in their advertisements that they spent endless dollars on.  Now, we are bombarded with all the big chains advertising for the Holidays.  I know it's common and typical but truly it's quite annoying.  While i was watching a game show I believe there was around 10 commercials pertaining to holiday shopping. 

    I'm not a scrooge I'm just a little entertained at the whole thing.  I'm happy that people are excited about shopping and the Holidays. 

    I know that marketing has always had their target groups during different times of day as far as what ads they run.  It's kind of fun to pay attention to them and see how we sometimes get suckered into buying into it.  

    If you're in Las Vegas and want to do some free site seeing take a visit to the Bellagio.  It's so beautiful at all times of the year.  ENJOY!!! 

    Happy Holidays everyone.  Penny O'Brien in the wonderful city of Las Vegas.

    Vegas? I don't get it, some of you aren't old enough to gamble.  You're not old enough to drink. The only thing you're old enough to do is a rent a hotel and ---ah I get it.  smart. 

    If you are interested in seeing a show make sure to try to purchase tickets in advance.  There are many shows offering local discounts right now.

    The strip always offers many things for free you just have to be open to finding them. 

    People watching is always fun and it's free.

    Lots of visitors who have been to Vegas before will be offered all kinds of deals pertaining to their previous stay.

    Shopping is always a great time in Vegas, we have some of the best malls located on the strip or very near.  Outlet malls too.

    Some of the casino hotels are offering discounted spa days too. Make sure to call around to see who is offering what.

    There's also many things of interest to do off the strip.. The Grand Canyon is a great adventure.  A trip to Hoover Dam in amazing.  Rent a car and explore.

    Enjoy your stay in Vegas and please come back again.
