a little trip to the strip.

Good morning again! :-)
Yesterday, we headed down to the strip.
Here's a pic of us having a drink at the Halo bar next to Planet Hollywood.


Sorry for the bad pic. It was kind of dark in there.
The main purpose was to see the Bellagio Conservatory. They decorate it for every holiday and really do a fantastic job!
Here's one of the hotel entrances as we went in...
Giant ornaments hanging from the dome. And below, the ceiling near the front desk...
And the front desk....all decked out for the holidays.
And here's a few pics of the Conservatory.....




It was really beautiful! And so very festive!
We even finally found a good, not to busy, route from our house to the strip. Now, we may go down to the strip a little more often. It takes about 30-40 minutes to drive down there.
And of course, the strip was very busy. This week, the big convention is the 2016 National Finals Rodeo. They said over the Thanksgiving weekend, the rooms were 92% filled. And Vegas has a lot of rooms! 62,000 just on the strip! 124,000 rooms in the valley! And they're building more!
Anyway, we had a nice little excursion and I'm happy to say not one penny played at any casino.   :-)
