Day 101 … Christmas Eve Day

This morning we woke up in Kingman, AZ at the local Wal-Mart. The plan is to drive to Vegas today. We will be celebrating the holiday at a hotel just off the strip. The route from Kingman to Vegas took us across the new bridge at the Hoover Dam. With the holiday being such a busy time for traveling, the attraction was packed full of visitors and a huge line of traffic off the exit. Seeing as we had already visited the Hoover Dam during our 2008 roadtrip, we decided to spare ourselves the stress of sitting in extra traffic and attempting to maneuver through the herdsof people. With the time change, it was just after 1PM when we arrived in Las Vegas. To help kill the extra hour, we stopped in at Target and ate lunch at In-n-Out. When check-in time finally rolled around, we were psyched to get showers and settle into the hotel room. After lounging around for a little while, we decided to go out and walk the strip. On our stroll, we stopped at Planet Hollywood and at the new Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino. Unfortunately, neither of us were particularly impressed with the latest Vegas casino. For dinner, we went to Taco Mexico (the same great mexican place we discovered on our earlier stay in Vegas). Delicious! Back at the hotel room, we settled into bed for a good night’s rest.
