We had this trip last year, a day after Halloween. My sister-in-law Jaina and her husband came for a visit. My other sis-in-law Marilou planned a short getaway to Las Vegas to make their stay worthwhile. As for me, this was my first out-of-state trip.
It was a smooth 6 hours drive from Chula Vista. With mandatory stops for snacks, restroom use and coffee break. We arrived around 2 AM at The Strip. We checked-in at The Quad. Here\’s the view from our window.
The Quad is in the middle of everything! It\’s just a matter of choice to go from left or right. We opted to sleep through the night so we could conserve our energy for tomorrow\’s walk.
The next day…
Missed a Cirque show…Maybe next time.
The ceiling of The Venetian.
I have to say this, it looks glorious.
Breakfast time! Opted for a Chinese meal. Thanks Jaina!
The restrooms are so clean! I love the mirrors.

|I love the \”sky\” ceiling. It looks real.|
After frolicking inside The Venetian, time to go out.
|If you want to have your pics taken with them, you have to give a tip. It\’s a must. Same thing with the other costumed people along the road.|
I forgot the name of this mall. It feels like you\’re inside an ancient city.
|Check-out the spiral/curved escalator.|
|3 floors of H&M goodies|
In Vegas, photobombers are everywhere. Seriously! But for me, every time someone does that I simply ask them to join me. They will oblige of course. Especially if they had a few glasses of \”spirits.\”
|My husband thinks this guy is in the military. Look at the haircut. And there\’s a military base near Las Vegas.|
|My pogi na brother in law.|
|Only one thing comes to my mind about Caesar\’s Palace…THE HANGOVER!|
I find each hotel has their unique gimmicks to attract people. Nowadays, Instagram-worthy interior and decorations are a must. People flock in to take pictures. You don\’t have to pay a dime for it. Just remember: No photo-taking at the casino area.
|I forgot the name of this hotel. I love spacious lobbies.|
They have a Halloween-themed garden.
|The strip at daytime.|
