We stayed on the 10th floor of the Bellagio and had a spectacular view of the fountains and water show. Set your TV in the room to the Bellagio channel and there is a beautiful musical accompanment to listen to while you view the show from your room. A different fountain show and musical arrangement begin every 15 minutes.Can also be viewed from the street and casino/bar areas. Fabulous!
The Garden Court Buffet at the Main Street Station hotel and casino is an intimate buffet experience if that is possible in a facility that seats 500. The decor in the dining room is old turn of the century train station motif in a Victorian gingerbread style. The food selection is fantastic and our favorite was the crab legs. The buffet is next door to the casino which also has the train station feel and is very different from much of Las Vegas. This buffet is worth the drive from the strip to downtown Las Vegas.
We selected Ceasars Cafe Lago as some of our group was staying at Ceasars Palace and this restaurant had a buffet which we thought might of streamlined the whole dinner scene for our group of 20+people.Well wrong buffet! Not good at all. Small selection of foods which looked unappetizing and was unremarkable. Really disappointing and expensive too! So many good buffets in Vegas this is not one of them. Look elsewhere
Arizona Charlie's is a cheap option for a hotel in Las Vegas. It is off the strip and has its own casino. The rooms are old and pretty basic. The rooms were livable but I wouldn't want to stay too many nights there. The casino was pretty depressing looking and not the glamorous environment you usually find in Vegas.
We went to Lake Rawlings (old stone quarry) for our Open Water dive certification. Since our dive shop set everything up including tank refills, etc. we did not have to deal with the employees of Rawlings except when we registered. Our experience with the employees was positive. The lake is a good spot for certification since there are no waves, visibility is good and they have underwater platforms at various depths where you can perform and practice skills. The lake also includes a submerged bus, a sail boat, and many other interesting items to explore. It is cold so you need a 5 mm wet suit even in summer.
Located in the Annapolis City Dock area this shop has tons of charm and character. I go into sensory overload checking out all the bright colors,patterns and textures of the authentic Mexican merchandise.I love the wood items and furniture as well as the Mexican painted ceramic items and tiles done in creative patterns.Cool hanging star lights.Cases with silver items/jewelry.Take a look when in the area.
We have visited Harris Crab House on Kent Island a number of times. While it is known for its crabs we usually get the seafood platter which includes a variety of seafood. We have eaten both inside and outside but prefer the outside setting. The ambiance of eating seafood outside by the water is fantastic. Great food. It is usually crowded so you may have to wait but you can spend your time getting a drink at the nearby Red Eye Bar or just walking along the water and docks.
Loved this shop. Lots of specialty dog merchandise. Particularly interesting is the doggie bakery goods.Part of the Annapolis downtown shopping area a fun place to check out and buy a present for your favorite rescue doggie friend.
The Crab Deck is located on the water overlooking a marina on Kent Island. The outside tables overlooking the boats and the water are the ideal location to enjoy a great seafood dinner. The seafood platters were fantastic and atmosphere was perfect. I can't remember if the service was slow or not since I was content just to sit there and enjoy the evening as long as I could. We did have to wait a little while for our table but walking along the water while we waited was delightful.
This restaurant is located in a neat little shopping area in Bethesda. Lots of hustle and bustle. We had heard of the spot and thought we would give it a try with our group. Everyone liked their order and the Pad Thai dish was particularly noteworthy. A few of us ordered some specialty iced tea which was also delicious. Authentic Thai food. Recommend.
