Arrived safely in Las Vegas on Sunday August 24, 2014 we intended to stay for 5 days, but the campground at Circus Circus was offering a deal of “Stay 5 days get 2 days free”. So we stayed the week. Sad news about the Circus Circus campgrounds, they will be closing as of September 30, 2014. Bought out by MGM they will be putting something other than a campground. The Circus Circus campground is extremely large, and it has very little landscaping. We however really lucked out on this trip by getting a really nice site. The first picture is of the Jeep with the top off, and how most of the campsite looks. The second picture is our spot! A large corner spot with several large trees and a patio. The camper was in the shade for nearly half the day.
One of the reasons we were so happy to have the camper in the shade. The Jeep was in the shade when the temp. hit 105!
Got the camper hooked up, both airs running and off we went to the old strip.
Later that day I took the roof and doors off the jeep so we could cruise the strip after dark.
The strip after dark was a blast. The temp. had finally cooled down to the low 100’s!
Of course, Peggy had to test her luck at the Bellagio.
The water show outside the Bellagio is still stunning.
The nest day we went to Mandalay Bay resort to see the Shark Reef aquarium. Thanks Kelley for the tickets! It was great.
I checked to see if they had any shark experience dives available. I was thinking it would be something like Epcot at Disney. Disney costs about $120.00 which is pricey by reasonable. The price to dive at Mandalay Bay is $650.00 for one or a cool grand for 2. Yikes! No diving in Vegas for us.
