Las Vegas + Grand Canyon

This is my 5th time visiting Las Vegas and my 2nd time touring Grand Canyon. I know right…I must be running out of road trip destinations. However, it’s okay because I have always loved Las Vegas, not because of the activities that I could not legally attend but because of the simple fact that it distracted me from the responsibilities of my real life (and buffets). Since I was revisiting, the itinerary was more laid back…a nice change of pace!

There was a small Native American Village displaying the different homes of various tribes. It’s very cute and a great interactive experience! :3

At Eagle Point, we had the chance to go on the ever-so-popular Grand Canyon Skywalk. Although it was an unique experience, I was a bit disappointed at how expensive the short walk is.

Stop 3: Guano Point

M Resort Studio: B Buffet

This is my second time coming to this buffet. Yes. It’s that good. Although this buffet may be smaller than other Las Vegas buffets, B Buffet still has a wide selection of food choices and an impressive row of desserts. I’m a hopeless sweet tooth, so they’ve got me hooked. During Christmasttime, they offer crab and they make this yumminess super easy to consume by already cracking the shell in half for you!

CSI: The Experience

Entrance to CSI: The Experience

I adore criminal and law shows…so this little activity was pretty fun. I’d say it would be perfect for 5th-8th graders who like criminology… but everyone can learn something from it. There are three “murders” to “solve.” You record down your findings on a self-guided worksheet that will guide you to success.

After watching the O show….I was speechless. The acrobatics and performance were perfectly synchronized and the entirety of the performance makes it worth every penny. The storyline will forever be a mystery…the performance, the story, the characters will adapt to your own imagination and you will find that you are creating the storyline yourself. It is truly an amazing and unique performance. I was definitely impressed as this was my first Cirque du Soleil performance. Definitely going to see a second one in the future~
