Claire’s Life: Viva Las Vegas!

Happy Monday!
So I was graciously invited by Sundrop to attend the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada, and share my thoughts on the show via Twitter.

Before attending the show, I did of course get a chance to experience Vegas. A few of my fave activities included….
Taking a helicopter ride into the Grand Canyon with Serenity Tours:

Sure, gliding thousands of feet in the air is slightly terrifying, but there’s nothing like seeing one of the seven natural wonders of the world via helicopter. The price includes over a one hour tour, breakfast, a beverage, and a moment to view the Canyon from inside. It was amazing.

Spending time by the pool:

Of course no trip to Vegas would be complete without some requisite time spent sunning poolside. Though I popped by both MGM’s and Monte Carlo’s pools, I’d highly suggest hitting up Ditch Fridays at the Palms.

Entry is about $30, but be prepared for great beats, fun drinks, and lots of eye candy.
The nightlife:

While I didn’t sample the night life too much, I did pop by 1Oak at the Mirage after the awards show. The space is vast and the bass is bumping. You’ll surely have a good time!
Other must sees include the light show at the Bellagio, and just a simple walking tour of all the hotels.

I’m not much of a gambler, but naturally, there’s lots of that as well:

And that’s all I got!
