I would have to disagree with Morrigoon, I would not recommend Bellagio's buffet. My brother (Captain Locke, btw) and I tried it last year. Neither of us thought it was worth the money we paid. This is from two guys who certainly enjoy some of the finer foods out there, which is what Bellagio was trying to showcase. IOHO, the best buffets are at Bally's, Harrahs and Rio (Carnival World, have not been to the seafood one). The old Alladin had a decent one, but the new one's isn't very good. I would steer clear of the ones at the Stardust and the Excalibur. The Stardust's was pretty lousy, and the one at the Excalibur you have to go through the buffet first, and then get seated. Rather annoying if you ask me.
As for places to stay, I would recommend Ballys or Harrahs. We have been out there ten times and have stayed at Flamingio, Bally's, Harrahs, Treasure Island, Ceasars, Paris and Luxor. We liked those 2 the best, though Caesars was certainly nice, but more expensive than those 2.
We both enjoy Las Veags. We go out there for the gambling, shows and more. It is a great place to relax, as there is usually something open around the clock. Thus there is no reason to rush, unless you have show tickets. That said, neither of us are big gamblers. We always try to take in a few shows and maybe a tour or museum. Last year we went to the Liberace museum. Well worth it. We've also been to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, and the Grand Canyon.
Oh well. I guess that is enough for this post. That was probably more than $0.02, good thing the meter wasn't running!
Till the next post, Good Day!
