Las Vegas, Nevada...Wow! What a city! Disneyland for adults. We just love Vegas...the lights, the beauty, the excitement, the entertainment, the food. We were married there, saw Phantom of the Opera for one of our aniversaries and many other wonderful shows. Being so close to Death Valley, Valley of Fire and Red Rock, it makes a wonderful base camp.
You’d have to be a pretty big curmudgeon for Bourbon Street not to put you in a good mood. Free-flowing music and booze might have something to do with it. Restaurants and bars pack this historic strip of the French Quarter; Jean Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop is even rumored to be haunted. Of course, if you really like crowds, grab your mask and join the Mardi Gras circus.
