We made a quick stop in Las Vegas after our time in Bryce Canyon. We were on the road by 7 AM which put us in Las Vegas around 11 AM. I call this stop our “splurge stop”, Matthew calls it our “comfort stop”…either way, I have been looking forward to it!
I had read about an art exhibit that is about 10 miles (30 minutes with traffic) outside of Las Vegas called the Seven Magic Mountains. This was assembled in 2015 and is only supposed to be displayed for 3 years. The rock displays are 30-35 feet tall and it was a neat pull off spot.
We had reserved a room at the Bellagio and parked in their parking garage. We were able to check in at noon and had a beautiful room overlooking the fountain and the strip. Neither of us had much of an interest in doing anything except relaxing in the room until dinner, and that is exactly what we did!
We had dinner at the Bellagio buffet and then went to the 7 PM showing of the Cirque du Soleil “O” show which was absolutely incredible.
After our show, we watched the fountain from outside and got gelato from Cafe Gelato inside the Bellagio. We both were exhausted and headed to bed!
Friday morning, we stopped at The Coffee Cup for breakfast which is another Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives find. The Coffee Cup is in Boulder City, NV and was on our way out of town. It was great food, great portions, and great prices in an eclectic cafe setting. We didn’t have to wait for a table as we were there at 7 AM and the service was friendly.
We definitely enjoyed our (almost) 24 hours in Las Vegas but we are excited to get back on the road!
Thanks for reading! Check back soon for updates!
