Celebrating New Year's Eve Las Vegas Style


Well friends, for someone who claims to never go down to the Las Vegas strip, I certainly have a lot of photos to share with you! 
I've decided since Las Vegas is notably a New Year's destination for some, what a better time to give you a taste of some eye candy from my home town. 
I took these photographs on two different occasions in December 2010;
A Holiday Party at the Ghost Bar which is at the "top" of the Palms Hotel, 
and on another occasion during my MIL's visit we went to see an amazing show at the Wynn Hotel, called  
So, without further ado, I hope you enjoy the sites and sounds (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Elivs) 
I've put together for you from Las Vegas.


A lot of reflection from the glass that surrounds the patio on the rooftop deck.

A view looking down the side of the Palms Hotel.  A portion of the floor on the deck is see through.  (That's my shoe)





The night we went to see Le Reve at the Wynn it was raining.  It had been raining for about 3 days in a row which was strange,  but it made for some really cool shots.  The clouds and fog were so low it covered some of the hotels.

Inside Wynn Las Vegas on the way to the show


Inside the Wynn Theatre.
The water is the stage area.  I took photographs before and after the show. 
No photography was allowed during the show. 



A feast for the eyes from all sides before and after the show.  I could not stop taking photos.  The light and colors were amazing!


For someone that rarely gets to see rain and fog, I was almost as fascinated with the show outside as I was with the show inside.



Remember, these photos were taken a few weeks ago.  I don't think you could "drag" me down to the Strip on New Year's Eve.  I'll be watching the events on TV from the warmth of my home! 

How about you?  What are you doing New Year's Eve?

Thanks for the wonderful glitz and glamour Becca. LOVE the Wynn Theatre show. Sooo quiet this year ... having an extra long stay with my (elderly) parents and our mighty toddler. An early night, fireworks on TV :)

I can imagine the Vegas Strip would be a crazy nut house on New Year's Eve! That would be MUCH to MUCH excitement for this gal! :)

It's a quiet evening with hubby, popcorn and movies for me.

Happy New Year to you Becca!

We're just walking across the street...although with the freezing rain we've had that could be treacherous in itself!
Love the photos! Haven't been back to Vegas since we got married there almost 17 yrs ago!
