24 Hours in Las Vegas

Hey again!  Since I went on a fun brand trip last week, I thought I’d share it with you all.  I’ve been so fortunate and blessed to be able to work with so many brands over the years and this was a new type collaboration and it happened because I’m a Baby Boomer, so cheers for that! There are some advantages of getting older, right?  Really and truly, I’m so grateful that I get to do this job of a blogger/influencer and have it be my full-time job.  I still say I have the best job in the world, a dream job.

I’ll mention the brand event too, but this is not a sponsored post, I’m just sharing my trip to Las Vegas and why I was there.  They didn’t require that I write a blog post, I had other things I did with them.  I was in Las Vegas for just over 24 hours, so I’ll show you a bit of my time there. Since it was my first time there, it was very interesting to see Las Vegas in person.  I’ve only seen it on TV over the years.  I stayed at the Four Seasons hotel, a beautiful luxury hotel on the strip.  I didn’t have much time to see a lot, so I pretty much stayed in the hotel and took in the beauty of the outdoors and indoors, so that’s what I’ll share with you.

My pretty room at the Four Seasons was very nice and luxurious.  I was on the 36th floor so the views were amazing.

See?!  The pools are abundant in Las Vegas.  With 100 degree temps this time of year, those pools are much needed.  I didn’t take my swimsuit with me, but I did sit outside by the pool and worked on my computer.

I did walk outside for a bit and saw Mandalay Bay up close, which was right next door. These high rise hotels are very breath taking to take in.

Back inside the courtyard of the Four Seasons, I enjoyed seeing the outdoor spaces around the pool. Such a great space to relax!

Since I had been flying for 4 hours and I was on EST and 3 hours behind, I knew I wouldn’t last too long, so had an early dinner in the hotel at Veranda, a nice Italian restaurant.  The Caprese salad was delicious.

I had a fish dish of grilled sea bass, arugula salad and potato chips, so good.

I decided to try their chocolate cake for dessert and it was decadent too. I didn’t eat it all, for the record!

I sat outside for a bit and watched the sunset before going up to my room for an early evening in.

The patio was so pretty at night.

Such a pretty spot to hang out and relax.

So many cozy spots to sit and relax.

The inside of the hotel is equally beautiful.  Loved this centerpiece coming in the lobby.

Going to the guest elevators is another pretty spot.

From the 36th floor, the views were so stunning with mountains in the background. So different from Georgia and the South with all of our trees.

Breakfast the next morning was on the Veranda as well, with avocado toast and eggs with fresh fruit. The perfect way to start my morning.

I took time to sit by the pool again to catch up on my computer and enjoy the ambience.

This orchid display was so gorgeous too. I can see that the hotels here in Las Vegas are second to none.

This display was amazing too, this looked like glass bowls all over the walls.

As I mentioned, I was there for a brand event. Humana was sponsoring Active Aging week and they asked me to be a spokesperson for them to kick off the event in Las Vegas. Since I’m so passionate about working out and staying in shape, it was the perfect fit for me.  I was so happy to represent them with such a great message of working out and getting to know others as we age and enter our senior years.  Relationships are so important to maintain in our older years.

I got back to the airport and back on my flight home just 24 hours after I touched down the day before.

It was a very fast trip, but now I can say I’ve been to Las Vegas.  It’s  not really a city that was on my bucket list to visit, but I’m glad I did.  I’m sure there is so much to do here besides gambling, which I’m not into.  I know I’d enjoy some of the shows in Vegas.

I thought you all would enjoy seeing my 24 hour trip to Vegas and see where I stayed!  It was a beautiful place, that’s for sure.

    Holy cow Rhoda, you certainly packed a lot into a 24 hour visit! Beautiful photos as always and I love the one if you at the airport, you look fabulous, it’s hard to believe you’d even be considered for a presentation on aging, you look much too young! I’m happy for you to have been able to visit Las Vegas, it’s an interesting city!

    • Thank you for that! I’m proud to be a Baby Boomer and represent our generation, so it’s fine with me to be chosen for these things. It was fun to visit!

  2. Hi Rhoda, Las Vegas is not on my my bucket list either. I’m not into gambling, but I would love to see the shows. The scenery is beautiful and the food looked delicious. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Loved hearing about your visit to Las Vegas. Loved your Four Seasons Hotel….but I must say that your pics of Mandalay Bay gave me the creeps. That crime has never been solved…..yet. Will we ever know the truth.

    • HI, Diane, I know that was such a tragic event there. I had forgotten about it until someone mentioned it to me on my trip. It was horrific!
