Vacation Part 3
I hadn't been to Vegas in about 20 years so most of this was new to me. Every hotel is themed inside, too, and you can spend days (as I'm sure the owner's hope you will) wandering every nook and cranny. They go to great lengths to make every space inside authentic as well. It was awesome and over the top, but we enjoyed every minute. We saw Bally's Jubilee with singing, dancing showgirls, tributes to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers, about 7 or 8 "skits" in all including an awesome sinking of the Titanic! We also went to a show called "The Rat Pack is Back!" featuring impersonators of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. & Joey Bishop. If you regularly read my blog, you may have seen the altered book spread I did on Vegas including them.
In the interest of keeping this travelogue readable, I'll end here and share our next location next time.
Next time: Come with me to Yosemite National Park and see my attempt to mimic Ansel Adams.
