Springtime in Paris…Las Vegas

Across the road from my divine hotel, Caesars Palace, is Paris Las Vegas.

 
 
 

This hotel and casino is a tad more intimate than Caesars and features a replica of the Eiffel Tower in front along with their very own Arc de Triomph.

Unmistakable on the Las Vegas Strip, this hotel really emulates what it feels like to be in Paris and what better time to visit than in Spring?

Already a favourite on my list of properties in Sin City, Paris is somewhere I’ve always wanted to stay and I was excited to invite a friend of mine from LA to share my time there with me.

Today was a day of exploration and our first stop was the Luxor Hotel and Casino further down the strip to celebrate the 99th anniversary of Titanic’s ill-fated maiden voyage.

The Titanic exhibition features genuine artifacts recovered from the site and the immaculate condition of these surprised us both.

Whether it’s testament to how well things were manufactured in 1912 or the preservative powers of the ocean, everything from jewellery to crockery, cosmetic bags to postcards survived. Walking through that veritable time capsule gave me goose bumps.

As part of the recovery, a big piece of the hull was able to be saved and will rest at the exhibition in the Luxor Hotel and Casino for the next few years.

Being such a cruise enthusiast, coupled with a lover of all things history, seeing this was so special. You really can feel the hopes and dreams of the passengers onboard the Titanic with the superb way they’ve laid it out. At times, it felt as if you really were on the deck of the beautiful vessel.

From history to death defying acts, Erlina and I braved the rollercoaster at New York New York for the first time in our lives.

This is something I had on my bucket list for Las Vegas from last year and I was like a child on Christmas morning as we lined up for the front seat on the thrilling ride.

Alarm bells went off when the ride before us was stopped for reasons unbeknownst to us but did we turn away? No sirree…this was one thing I was crossing off for certain.

The loops and dips were thrilling and it woke us up just enough to make it to The Lion King without a nap beforehand.

This musical was something I wasn’t too excited about seeing. Whilst I love all things musical, people dressed as animals just didn’t peak my interest.

Boy was I wrong.

The Lion King had me captivated from the moment it started to the moment the lights went up. I cried, I laughed, I re-evaluated the meaning of life. It was utterly impressive in every sense of the word.

I guess that’s a lesson in itself, don’t judge a book by its cover.

Vegas is like that I’ve discovered, you peel back the layers and it constantly surprises you.
