Trip to Las Vegas - Day 2

Second day in Vegas was more of a chill day. First we went to see world famous Hoover Dam and then returned to Vegas for the second night before moving on.

Night life in Las Vegas

Once we were back in Las Vegas it had already been dark. We took some photos from the top of our hotel tower. Since we stayed in that hotel it was totally free for us otherwise you would have to pay to get up.

View on Las Vegas from the Stratosphere

View on Las Vegas. Actually it's quite huge. The main street - the strip with all the hotels is in the center. But look at all the rest of the lights. This is all Vegas.

Stratosphere attractions in Vegas

Tower has many different attractions. One of them is sky jump, something like a bungee jumping. Then there are several different attractions, carrousels and other stuff. Basically all you could wish for.

Bungee jumping in Vegas

Here goes the next jumper. Even at night there is a cue. As I already told it costs 100$ and could be quite scary.

Pool party in Vegas

After playing all night in casinos and evening winning some money the best thing you could wish in the morning is a pool on the roof of your hotel.

Relaxing in the pool before checking out

And here it is. Relaxing before checking out of the hotel. And as I already mentioned all this was for only about 35$ per night. I love Vegas. :)
