While I have heard so many fun stories and adventures from friends & relatives who have been to Vegas, I have yet to go to one of the most popular cities in the United States. My aunts and uncles have told me countless times that Vegas will be in our itinerary the next time I visit the US.
SOL FELICE says
It’s good to know that Las Vegas is also a family friendly place to visit. For me and adventure thrill-seekers alike, The Wet ‘N’ Wild and the Adventure Canyon at Buffalo Bill’s are a must visit.
Mommy Peach says
Will keep that in mind, Sol.
