Las Vegas was never somewhere that I particularly wanted to visit. With no culture, not a lot of history, and no major sights to see, it seemed to be a place to just gamble and party. And while I do like a good party, it isn’t the sort of thing I plan my travels around.
So I couldn’t have been any more surprised when I found myself absolutely loving the city almost as soon as we arrived. I loved it so much that it was one of my favourite parts of our American adventure and I’m already desperate to go back.
From the minute our taxi hit the Strip, I had my eager face pressed up against the window, oohing and aahing at all the bright lights and enormous hotels dominating the skyline, people spilling out onto the sidewalks watching the majestic displays of entertainment on the streets.
There really is so much more to Sin City than I gave it credit for. While it might not be to everyone’s taste, the fact that I ended up in complete wonderment of the place just goes to show that it certainly shouldn’t be written off. I could enthusiastically chatter on about this place all day but here are just a few of the many reasons why Las Vegas won me over so easily.
