It’s a strange time to visit Las Vegas. Frankly, the casinos in Sin City are still a shell of the great vacation destination that had more than 42 million people visit last year. Las Vegas is still great but with bars closed, clubs offering more mellow experiences, and shows dark there isn’t as much to

The Bellagio fountain show is one of the best free attractions in Las Vegas. If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that this isn’t a new opinion. The shows are just beautiful to watch. Even more amazing is that this is what people see walking by a casino. This is truly stunning and never
