My first experience in Las Vegas was celebrating my 21st birthday. I went to see Zumanity Cirque De Solei and Chippendales. The second show even invited me up on stage to participate in the fun! The crowd cheered and the lights on the stage gleamed. It was unforgettable! I ate dinner at the Palms and they surprised me with a small piece of cake for my birthday. It was very thoughtful and delicious! I remember the city being full of lights everywhere that illuminated the streets and surrounding buildings. The casinos were full of people playing games and gambling. I played a few rounds of blackjack and doubled my initial bet! Luck must have been on my side for my birthday. Unfortunately the casinos reeked of cigarette smoke and it wasn't very pleasant. I am a healthy person and am not usually surrounded by smokers. Nevertheless, the city was beautiful full of diverse people and glamour!

There is always something to do here in Las Vegas. If there ever isn't, there is always something new to wait on. At this current time we are awaiting the completion of the new Raiders stadium! Along with that we have just experienced our very first Stanley Cup Finals Championship with our new hockey team--The Vegas Golden Knights. We have so much to offer here such as concerts, fine dining, family friendly events etc. We are definitely tourist friendly! You will meet new amazing people from all over the world that come to Las Vegas whether it is for work, school, or fun. The 24 hour lifestyle really helps with those who don't have enough hours in a day to get regular things completed during the typical work/business hours. The only this I wish I could change about my home city is the heat. But trust me, there are plenty of places to cool off during the summer!
Sin city is much more than a city filled with gambling, drinking, partying, and sexual temptations. To the untrained eye it's nothing more than a city that fulfills the bodily pleasures of sex, appetite, desire, drinking, and winning. To my sisters and I it's much more than that. It's our happy place. The city of our birth. Our home. What makes Las Vegas so great is its atmosphere. The place where anyone can escape reality and become their ideal self. No matter who you are, choose to be, or decide to do, Las Vegas will cheer and applaud you! The fear of judgement and scolding doesn't exist. You will always feel a sense of belonging. Everyone is welcomed.
