Las Vegas embodies the American clichés the world hopes are true, and the USA prays are not. — Mark Ellwood
Fred Baby and I kicked off the New Year with a roadtrip through the desert. He had business meetings in Las Vegas, and although we’ve both never been fans of the destination, we knew we’d enjoy the journey along the way.
Nothing beats a desert roadtrip in my book. Plus, I had resolved to try to look at Vegas as optimistically as possible (the lights! the shopping! the shows! the food!). But despite my best intentions, the cons, like a smoke-filled casino, clouded my ability to appreciate Vegas’ charms.
However, The Other Vegas, well that’s a different story.
The Lake Mead National Recreation Area, located about 40 miles southeast of The Strip, is a beautiful and blissfully empty desert dreamland of sherbet-hued rocks, stellar sunsets and landscape evocative of the Australian Outback.
It was just what the doctor ordered to start the New Year with a clear head.
What’s your take on Vegas?
I think it can be fun if you’re with a group of friends, but when solo or as a couple, not so much.
Of course, maybe it’s like going to New York and only thinking Times Square is what the city is about.
If you have any Vegas tips, I’m all ears!
Stay tuned as I’ll be sharing my Vegas tips here soon!
For now, my outfit details are below…
