Welcome to Las Vegas
Sin City offers a wide variety of entertainment options. It may
often surprise the new visitor how much there is to do outside of the casino
scene. Even animal lovers will be delighted. Parents will enjoy a myriad of
activities designed with children in mind. On this website we highlight all of
the popular attractions.
We also highlight some great hotel options. Book direct from the
hotel and save the commissions that would normally be paid to large travel
agents such as expedia, or travelocity. We link you to the hotels with the best
du Soleil O at Bellagio
As everyone knows, Las Vegas has plenty to
offer aside from gambling.
Anyone who visits should stop
gambling/drinking/partying for 2 hours to take in one of the amazing Cirque du
Soleil shows. It is largely known that the show “O” at the Bellagio is the
absolute best Cirque offering (although they are all pretty incredible). I have
seen all of the Cirque shows and not only do I agree that this is the best
Cirque show, I also think that it’s the absolute best show in Las Vegas (Carrot
Top is funnier though).
The custom main stage is a massive pool where
they create a magical experience for the viewers. There are floating horses (on
the water and in the air), mermaids, amazing diving feats, contortionists and
many, many more amazing Cirque sights in the water, on ground and in the air.
Close seating is definitely recommended for this
show but you do not need to be in the first 10
rows to get an amazing view.
Buy your tickets in advance
so that you don’t miss this spectacular show as you cannot
usually get good tickets last minute for this show.
I personally, thought O was
mind-blowing to say the least. When I walked out of the
theatre I felt mesmerized by the performance I had just seen
and wondered how they accomplished such an amazing feat.
Although all of it was great, the divers were particularly
incredible, they dove from very high heights into a very,
very small section of the pool/stage. This show causes a
sensory overload in all the best ways.
There is a large store inside
the Bellagio near the entrance and exit that sells some
pretty nifty memorabilia of the show.
Before or after the show is a
good opportunity to check out one of the great restaurants
in the Bellagio and also to see the fountains which show
every 30 minutes until 7pm and every 15 minutes until 12am.
Maybe see the fountains before the main event as they will
not seem as amazing right after seeing Cirque O.
If you love shows there
is no where better to be in the world than Las
Vegas. One show that consistently has high rankings
on Trip Advisor is none other than Carrot Top.
I had the pleasure of
seeing Carrot Top on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno
years ago. He was quite simply hilarious with his
props. I also kept hearing from close friends that
this was the show that I absolutely had to see.
Can you imagine my
surprise when my girlfriend gave me two front row
seat tickets to see the one and only comedian that
literally looks like a carrot?
I was overjoyed but
part of me was thinking he can’t possibly be as good
as the reviews claim. I am happy to announce I was
Last week I saw him
perform live for the first time. It’s not a stretch
of the imagination to claim that everyone in the
audience was laughing non stop. I personally had not
laughed so hard in years, it was from the first
introduction to the last minute non-stop laughter.
For some reason I
cannot remember the name of the opening comedian,
but he was also quite impressive… of course Carrot
Top stole the show as soon as he entered the stage.
He made jokes about everything from the shape of the
Luxor, to the state of the room he had to sleep in,
and of course he ranted about airplanes. The props
were of course quite funny to see live. The best
part is how fast he zips back and forth from prop to
joke to prop, it’s like a hyperactive child who
cannot stop himself from being crazy for the sake of
Overall this is a
show that I would recommend to everyone. If you are
going to see one comedic act, make it this one. I am
personally looking forward to returning to the Luxor
for this reason alone.
