Today was our first full day in Vegas so we decided to go on the outlets shopping tour which left at 11am and returned bout 4pm.  It was an hour bus ride out to the shopping centre and there were so many shops.  We got some really good bargains at Gap.  We all did our retail therapy and managed to spend a little bit of  money.   We had a break half way around with a cookie and drink from Mrs Fields which was free. 
 
When we got back to the hotel we freshened up and then headed out to catch the bus for the neon lights tour.  This took us up the strip and to some of the hotels to see their shows.  The first stop was the Rio and next door to the Rio is a hotel called the Gold Coast.  Anyway we headed inside to see a show that included the Chippendales bit A rated for Celise but she enjoyed it.  Next we were taken around the area and hotels and stories were told about the hotels.  Next stop was the Bellagio this is the hotel that has the water show on every night several times a night.  The water is shot up in rhythm to the music.  It was truly amazing.  Some of the streams were shot into the air up to 400 feet.  Next we went inside the hotel foyer.  Here on the ceiling we glass blown flowers which were created by an artist in total there were over 2000 flowers.  Inside this hotel they also have a flower show which is changed 5 times a year once for every season and then also for Chinese New Year.
 
After we got back into the bus we continued down the strip and were taken to what they call the Old Las Vegas Strip Fremont Street.  Here they have made a mall of sorts over 5 blocks and put a canopy over the top which has over 12000 lights in it.  They do a light display here several times a night which is wonderful.  We had some dinner down here as our tour guide explained that it was much cheaper down this end of town.  Souvenirs were also cheaper down here so we did a little bit of shopping as well.
 
We then all boarded the bus again and were dropped back at our hotel.  This was about 11.30pm.  Tomorrow I think will be a sleep in day.
