Las Vegas with the Lights Out

On our last night in Vegas began with a delicious Italian dinner on the streets of ‘New York’.

We then made our way to the Bellagio to watch the fountains.  It was a beautiful night and despite the crowds, we were able to find a prime spot with a great view.

Afterwards, we boarded the bus and headed off to Fremont Street or Downtown Vegas.  I had no idea what to expect, except for older casinos and cheaper tables.  I was pleasantly surprised to see the packed and colorful street alive with music and people.





The street was filled with energy as we strolled up and down the street.  We discovered this Foot Network/Man vs. Food favorite restaurant, where the waiters and waitresses were all dressed in scrubs and every patient diner is dressed in a hospital gown.  By the way, there is an ambulance out front in case of emergencies!

We walked up and down the street, enjoying the March Madness themed light show, the bands along the strip, and of course the people watching.

Although we didn’t find any $3 tables, we happily seated ourselves at a $5 blackjack table with a generous dealer.  Around 1AM, we set out to find the bus to take us home.  I was surprised by how much fun I had in ‘Old Vegas’ and recommend it to anyone headed out that way.  The bus is $7 per day and takes you up and down the strip and to Fremont Street. 

Total bummer, the pizza place was closed by the time we made it ‘home’!
