In exactly one week I'll be on a plane to Las Vegas, and I could not be more excited! It's my first proper visit to the States, and I can't wait to meander The Strip, see some shows and soak up everything Sin City has to offer.
I'm going with my dad, and a couple of weeks ago my uncle (dad's brother) surprised us with the news that he's going to come over from Canada and spend a few days with us while we're there, so I can't wait to have a bit of a family reunion!
We're going to be staying at the MGM Grand, which looks incredible (as do all the plush hotels on The Strip!). With a wealth of restaurants, bars and pools, it is sure to be a great base for our stay.
However there won't be much time for lazing around the pool, as my dad and I have plenty of things planned during our trip. We want to take a helicopter flight to the Grand Canyon, see some shows, explore all the different hotels, visit the traditional downtown area of Vegas, and of course have the odd flutter here and there in the casinos.
Being the adrenaline junkie that I am, I'm also going to be trying out the thrill rides at the top of The Stratosphere Hotel. Don't they look crazy!?
I can't wait to spend a week in this vibrant city, taking in the sights, enjoying the amazing restaurants and being dazzled by the bright lights, as well as spending some quality time with my dad and uncle. And of course I'll be having a snoop round the local malls, so if you know any American beauty or fashion brands that are worth checking out, please do let me know!
Have you been to Las Vegas before? Are there any attractions that you recommend?
