Christmas in Vegas

Saturday, February 09, 2013

My Las Vegas Christmas a while ago.... I thought I wouldn't have my perfect Christmas. But I did. This desert city defied the odds and magically transformed the Strip into a winter wonderland. 

Christmas in Las Vegas is like walking through the snowy paradise, You’ll find yourself surrounded by different paths that lead you to different holiday attractions, where a lavishly decorated 45-foot-tall Christmas tree awaits. It’s a buzz of activity around the impressive tree – families excitedly taking photos with their loved ones, children gazing in speechless wonder and lovers taking in the delightful moment in each other’s arms. 

Everyone thought traveling to Las Vegas would break the bank O.o" Luckily I'm not a gambler myself, I guess that's explain a lot. Thanks to Trip Advisor, I only spent approximate $500 for the RT ticket from New York City and 4 nights of hotel. Weekends usually equal to higher cost, I tend to avoid weekends traveling during the holiday season. :) Generally speaking, you’ll find cheaper room rates on stays occurring between Mondays and Thursdays. Weekend pricing, particularly for Fridays and Saturdays, is going to be the most expensive.

This is probably my 2rd or 3rd time traveled to Las Vegas, but every time when I come to Vegas, I would head over to the Bellagio Fountains for a grand symphony of music, lights and merriment. Especially during the holiday season, the fountains dance to holiday songs such as “Carol of the Bells,” “Santa Baby” and “Jingle Bells,” and everyone will be filled with a good dose of holiday cheer.

Sightseeing in Las Vegas is pretty awesome, although I am from New York City, seeing all cartoon characters walking around in the city is such a common thing, BUT I still went to check out the costumed street performers on the Las Vegas Boulevard, course I might find Angels, Eves, Santa and even Woody from Toy Story dressed in Christmas clothes!

So, if you’re looking for a place to spend Christmas and have a jolly good time, put Las Vegas on your list of destinations to consider. Oh, and did I mention the room rates during winter are also some of the lowest of the year?!

  1. My other home town! I lived in Las Vegas for 15 years before moving away in 2008. Every time I see pictures or even hear it mentioned, this sense of excitement fills me up! Las Vegas definitely is an interesting place to spend Christmas! Hotel rooms are actually less expensive around that time, until you hit the week of New Years Eve! Thank you for highlighting one of my favorite cities!
