Wayne and I are on a winter sun seeking vacation. Unfortunately, storms coincided with the days we'd already scheduled for our trip. But here in Las Vegas, weather moves through quickly and we still got a full day of sun for our effort.
February is a good month to visit Las Vegas for several reasons. Typically, it's sunny and warm when the Pacific Northwest is cloudy, cold and rainy. Next, the rooms are extremely reasonable. We chose the Hard Rock Hotel. King rooms were as low as $36, and a suite at $81, depending on the night selected. We opted for a suite.
The Hard Rock Hotel is off the strip, but within reasonable walking distance. It's also close to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and its Thomas and Mack Center. Since we couldn't soak up the sun for the first two days, we went to UNLV men's baseball games. We bundled up and got excellent seats for $5 each online, the best bargain of the trip.
We walked down to the strip to see what was happening. There were quite a few people, but not overly crowded. Rather than gamble, we went to a movie at the United Artists Showcase near the MGM Grand.
Finally, there was sun on our last day so we took our books to the pool.
We picked the Hard Rock Hotel because they have lots of pools to choose from, but only one was open this time of year. But it was all we needed to get our much needed dose of natural Vitamin D.
