The world’s most exciting city, Las Vegas, is a fun place to visit and we like to do it at least once a year. A lot can happen in that city in 12 months as it is constantly re-inventing itself. One of the latest additions is “City Center,” and it is simply awesome! The Aria Hotel is part of this complex and was featured on a recent episode of “The Bachelor.” We spent the good part of a day exploring, shopping, having lunch, and taking photos. When I took this photo it seemed like I was standing in the middle of Disney World!
To Vegas and back home to Phoenix we drove across the new 240 million dollar Hoover Dam Bridge. I was a little apprehensive the first time (because of my fear of heights) as the bridge is almost 1,000 above the Colorado River, but they put 4 foot walls on both sides so unless you are driving an 18 wheeler you don’t even realize you are on it.
You do have the option of going just a little out of your way, parking, and hiking to the new bridge for a spectacular view of one of our National Treasures. The hike was easy and wheel chair accessible.
The dam is located on the Arizona – Nevada border and you will experience a time change when crossing the bridge.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day adventure! Now I have to sift through over 500 photos and post a few of them on my Photo Site.
