When I think of Vegas, I think of lights, music, drinks and people on the side of the street handing you tickets (sometimes tickets for things you don’t want… lol). This was my first time not staying on the Vegas strip and staying on Fremont Street. I’m going to be super honest… I truly love the Vegas strip and everything that they have to offer. But there is something about Fremont Street that makes it so much more fun! Maybe it’s the lower price on the drinks and food… lol. Okay maybe it is that too, but the atmosphere there is so different. It feels like the side street to your typical downtown/uptown street. It’s filled with tourists, but when we found ourselves in other areas with less people.. we ran into other locals. And I felt so good because we found a local spot! Fremont Street’s music may not be as good, but its soul is definitely way more lively!
We stayed at the Four Queens Hotel and it was across the street from the venue where Odesza’s show was playing. It was kind of nice to be in an old school casino/hotel. The decorations were so vintage. Literally, the corridor felt like a part in the movie “The Shining.”
LAS VEGAS STRIP
There was a ton of “firsts” for me during this trip. This was the first time I’ve ever stepped out of the “strip valley”. I really enjoyed getting off of the strip and away from Fremont Street. I love to hike! And hiking on some trails here and checking out the Seven Magic Mountain Exhibit was at the top of my list. It was one of the best views I’ve seen in my life. Seeing Red Rock Canyon felt like being in a Jurassic Park movie or being a part of the Targaryen family throne and seeing dragons fly across the mountains and beautiful landscape. This was the first time I thought, “wow.. I don’t want to live in Dallas anymore. I want to be in a city that has more surroundings like this.”
This was one of my favorite trips throughout this entire year. I’m honestly just dying to come back and hike longer in Red Rock Canyon. The hiking trails are range from easy to complex. I may book a flight back just to hike for the weekend 🙂
