Day 2 Las Vegas (Continuation)

By | May 12, 2008

After our dinner at the Bellagio, we headed out to look for Grand Canyon tours.  We found one place and we were way too late to make any bookings.  It was already 8ish p.m. and all tours were full or only one or two seats left.  I went a head and book a seat for myself since the other 3 were not that interested.

I paid my deposit and then walked out and half way to Bellagio for the music fountain show, Leong stopped and we had a pow-wow in the middle of the sidewalk.  He said it would be better if we rent a car and then pay the $20 parking fee at the canyon park and then individual fees of $30/person to visit the Grand Canyon West Rim.  If we want to visit the Skywalk, we need to pay another $30/person.  If his mathematical brains, he summed up it would be cheaper if we rent the car since renting a car in Vegas is dirt cheap.  We all agreed and then walked to Bellagio where the music fountain started a minute or two before we got there.

From there we walked to Ceasar’s Palace, The Forum Shops and by then David was already getting really cranky.  That poor kid was tired and wanted to sleep but the stroller was a little too small for him but after a while he knocked out.


Ceasar’s Palace


At The Venetian: The shops along the Canal that runs through the hotel.

Right after the visit to the Venetian, we head back to our hotel to enquire about rental cars.  Unfortunately, we hve to go to the hotel next to ours, Treasure Island, where the nearest rental car was located – Dollar Rental.  Once we got back to our room, we made phone calls to the rental car company and thank god there was a 24-hour operator on call for our questions/bookings.  After every thing was finalized with the rental car company, I then had to call the tour company which I had paid a deposit for the Grand Canyon tour so they don’t have to stop at The Mirage to pick me up.

Dang, another long night.  We didn’t get to sleep till 2:30 a.m.

Day three of our Grand Canyon West rim tour will be tomorrow.  Stay tune.
