A Trip To Vegas


A trip that will always be remembered is the one in Las Vegas, what is sometimes referred to as "Sin City" due to it's casino gambling places, though I prefer to remember it as a "sensational" city, LasVegas, Nevada.

From LA to this gambler's city, It was a 4 hour drive during the summer months. The weather was exceptionally hot but such excitement filled the air. When my friends and I got to our casino Hotel, we were amazed by the kindness showed to us by the valet attendant as he welcomed us to the gambling and entertainment world, and wish for us a splendid stay and away we went to check in and start what ended up being the most fabulous time.

We played casino, gambled card games like poker, blackjack and craps and laughed and ate fantastic foods, prepared by some of the best chef's in the world, and right on the strip of the gambling city.

I wanted to take my chances on a gigantic dollar slot machine and decided to risk 25.00 dollars of the 200.00 dollars I had to play with for the whole trip. After feeding 17.00 dollars into this huge slot machine I hit 300.00 dollars and I jumped up and down and laughed so much, a casino attendant came over and offered my friends and me a free tickets to a show with vouchers for two complimentary drinks. We were in an element of surprise, appreciation and realized that it would be a gambling and adventure trip not forgotten. "Casino City", I love you.
