I hate to admit it publicly, but I did not gamble while I was in Vegas.
I just have a moral issue with laying my money out on the table and leaving it up to chance! So on Saturday night, a few friends and I took the money that we would have otherwise spent gambling and used it to go out to a VERY fancy dinner at the Bellagio.
I have to say, this dinner was so good that I have no regrets whatsoever- and I would do it again!!!
Anyway, we had late-ish reservations so we took a couple hours beforehand to explore the Bellagio.
We headed straight for the Bellagio Gardens which is an EXTRAVAGANT exhibit that the hotel changes up every season. It was absolutely spectacular! Of course we were there in November so the season they had on display was autumn.
After strolling through the gardens and several of the shops inside the hotel, we made our way outside for the fountain show. Looking out from the front of the Bellagio, we had excellent views of the surrounding hotels at dusk including Caesars Palace, Paris, and our hotel- Planet Hollywood.
