One of the things I loved about Las Vegas was that I was able to combine the old with the new. I saw Fremont Street, which is where the action in Las Vegas used to be, but also walked around the new strip. The new strip is a lot longer than I had anticipated, so if you choose to walk this route, make sure you give yourself a lot of time, and drink some Gatorades along the way to recover! Also, not to miss is the amazing fountain show which occurs outside of the Bellagio hotel to a new song every few minutes!
I was lucky enough to get a retired taxi driver to show me around Red Rock Canyon. Located in the Mojave Desert, Red Rock Canyon is an incredibly interesting natural rock formation which looks as if someone put tape over the rocks, spraypainted over them, and then ripped the tape off, leaving strikingly odd, yet beautiful color patterns. Don't take my word for it, have a look at the picture and see for yourself.
