vegas



Like I mentioned in my previous post, I'm not a big fan of Vegas. I'd choose San Francisco any day over Vegas. I don't know, ever since I first went to SF when I was 13, I've always been in love with SF. My aunt continuously tells my boyfriend how I've always loved SF. In high school, I've always dreamed about going up north for college. Times have changed, and I'm still here in LA but I'm not complaining. Anyway, I totally went off topic, but after a somewhat boring trip to Arizona, we decided to take a detour to Vegas. Obviously taking a detour to SF isn't an option (while driving a very long 8 hour drive, I was half regretting going to the Grand Canyon over SF, but I figured since I've never been to the Grand Canyon, why not?). Okay enough about SF.

Anyway, the drive to Vegas from Flagstaff took only 4 hours. While driving there, we drove through the Hoover Dam and for some reason I got all excited. I never knew how close the Hoover Dam was to Vegas. After a little less than an hour, we arrived in Vegas and walked around. Since this trip was a last minute trip, we just ate at the Grand Lux Cafe in the Venetian. Oh! One of my best friends went to Vegas last weekend and told me about a drink at the Coca Cola store. For $7.00, you can try 16 different drinks from Coca Cola from around the world. It was definitely the highlight of the entire trip. My favorites would have to be drinks from Spain and Japan! The one drink my friend mentioned to me was the one drink that caught me off guard. It's called the Beverly from Italy. It tasted like rubbing alcohol or even worse. Overall, the entire trip was fun. Who knew that I would be in three states in one day! Doesn't happen all the time!
