You can enjoy amazing handcrafted cocktails in the bar at Prime Steakhouse.  The Prime Steakhouse restaurant feels very romantic and has spectacular views to the famous Bellagio Fountains.  It seems like most people don’t know you can just have cocktails here, which makes it a great place to enjoy time together.

Prime Steakhouse is beautifully designed in deep chocolate brown highlighted by delicate Tiffany’s blue décor.  This place is decorated with amazing artwork by Joseph Raffael, Carlo Maria Mariani, George Deem and Michael Gregory.  You can enjoy a marvelous culinary experience with steak, seafood and lamb accompanied by fabulous sauces, sides,  great wines, and satisfying desserts all meticulously prepared by their award-winning chef.  You can also enjoy this savory experience in their garden patio.

We enjoyed perfectly prepared filet mignon with crab legs nearly as big as my arm accompanied with golden butter and savory sauces.  We followed this up with wonderful dessert choices recommended by our waiter.  The professional staff at The Bellagio’s Prime Steakhouse made our dinning experience magical.

Don’t Cheat Yourself in Vegas

Las Vegas seems to offer multiple dimensions in reality for you vacation travel needs.  We have traveled to Vegas before and during one of our first trips to Vegas our experience was controlled by a tight budget.  We also did not spend much time planning our vacation.  Our most recent Vegas vacation was much different and felt like a totally different experience.  You can experience a different dimension of your vacation in Las Vegas without breaking the bank, with a little planning.

While planning our trip, we talked to each other about how we imagined the perfect experience for us.  We talked with others that have been there and researched additional details on the web.  We made our list of things that were important for our vacation experience and designed the vacation we wanted before we booked anything.  I feel like the most important part was taking the time to imagine our vacation experience.  One thing I was not sure about was spending money to have a private cabana at one of the beautiful Bellagio pools.  It seemed silly to spend money to hang out at the pool, but I was glad we did because it was just what I needed.

Las Vegas offers endless possibilities for enjoying the type of vacation you imagine.  Don’t cheat yourself in Vegas, take the time to plan the vacation you imagine.  Feel free to tell yourself it’s okay to treat yourself.  Your heart, mind, and soul will thank you.


Fun in Las Vegas

Don’t Cheat Yourself

The way I think about myself and how I feel about life has changed from this experience.  Our experience reminded me of this quote.

“The way that you do anything is the way that you do everything.”

During vacations we immerse ourselves into our environment and fully engage in every minute of the day.  We return from our travels and ease into a robot form of ourselves, mechanically getting though the days until our next vacation.  This type of mindset is cheating us out of real happiness.  We can choose to have a more satisfying life by choosing to be engaged with our life in more meaningful ways.  This part is a “work in progress” with us, but we would like to hear your thoughts about this.
