    Stayed at The Rio All Suites casino. For the price and location it's hard to beat. Stayed for 5 days for $200 total and the rooms were clean and huge. Also this was the view from the room which was pretty cool at night.

    We had breakfast at Hash Hash A Go Go one morning which is also in the hotel. Everyone kept saying how great the food was but it seemed rather gimmicky with super huge portions and crazy presentations but the food was just okay nothing special. Paying almost $60 for breakfast I would have expected better. Here is the chicken and waffles...

    I used some comps but if you are staying in vegas that's just common sense.

    Later that day went to The Downtown Container Park near Fremont Street. It's basically an outdoor shopping mall where all the stores are made out of shipping containers.

    Bought some fancy chocolate and gourmet beef jerky there and ate at the gourmet hot dog joint.

    I'm usually suicidal by the end of day three in Las Vegas

    The best part of a Las Vegas trip is the anticipation of fun while waiting in the airport on your way there

    I dragged my gf and her brother and his gf out to Valley of Fire State Park so I could take some real pictures. If you haven't been to this place I consider it a must see while out in vegas. It's only 45 minutes Northeast of the strip.

    Now at the Fire Wave just before sunset. This is one of the more popular places in the park.

    Next day walked down the strip and picked up tickets to see O at The Bellagio. Went to Aria and had lunch at Five 50. A pizza joint with craft beers and lots of TVs so could catch some of the NCAA games. We ordered The Gotham :buffet:
