Somewhat Short and Sweet

Today has just been one of those days where nothing went as planned. I had originally planned a different post today, but I have anniversary festivities to attend to so I thought I would switch it up a little.

Since we are the poor college students that we are, dinner and a movie are all we can afford. Being in Las Vegas though, even such an average night can seem special! There are so many great aspects of this city that are often over-looked due to the casino's and night life.I thought I would share some of my favorite things from this great city. All of these are kid friendly! Here are a couple of my all-time favorites.

The Rainbow: This is a casino mind you, but it has a very special place on the list. The restaurant inside the casino is an absolute icon of Henderson (which is right next to Las Vegas), because it has the best-priced food in town! Monday  through Friday, before 11am, they serve the casino special. It consists of two eggs, two pieces of sausage or bacon, hash browns, and either toast or biscuits and gravy all for $1.89. Yes, you read that right! Their average menu price anytime is around $5-$6, which means you can easily feed a family of 4 for under $30! My twin and I are frequent customers ;)

The Wetlands Park: The wetlands is a park on the boarder of Henderson and Las Vegas. It is Vegas' best attempt at a swamp, so people from anywhere green or swampy most likely won't be impressed. But for us desert folk it is AWESOME! The best part; it's totally free! The other similar parks, like the Springs Preserve or Tully Springs, charge to get in.

Mystic Falls: This is a water and light show inside Sam's Town casino, which is near the boarder of Henderson and Las Vegas. In case you haven't caught on yet, I'm a 'Hendersoian', through and through. The show runs several times a day and is also totally free! I don't know if I would recommend going way out of your way for this one, but if you are nearby, its a gem!

There you have it! Affordable, family fun in Las Vegas!
