On our second full day in Las Vegas, my family and I went downtown to explore Old Vegas! We didn't even realize there was an "Old Vegas" until the sommelier at Mesa Grill recommended that we go down there and check out the "Fremont Street Experience." (Apparently they also have a light show on Fremont Street at night, but we missed those!) The city is trying to restore & renovate the area, transforming it into a tourist attraction once again.
This part of Vegas had a VERY different feel to it, and I personally enjoyed exploring the area. The highlights of Old Vegas, for me, were the Golden Nugget and The Mob Museum. Hopefully next time we can check out the Neon Museum that is also there!
The corridors of the Golden Nugget...turned sideways.
I loved the dramatic chandeliers at the Golden Nugget.

Carolyn and I preparing to pose for a photo, both turning to each other at the same time,
and asking, "Should we smile?", which of course ended in both of us smiling. :-)
I felt like every corner I turned I was finding the most amazing details!
Tomas and I both locked eyes on this garbage can, and thought the same thing:
"What a nice garbage can!"
So, of course, we had to take a photo.

Later that day, we returned back to The Strip and headed out for dinner at Julian Serrano Tapas in the Aria.

I forgot to take photos of the actual dinner, but we all agreed that it was the best dinner of the three nights we were in Vegas! (There was some very tough competition though).
We tried all different kinds of tapas at Julian Serrano, and we couldn't pass up the sangria either!
AMAAAZZZINGGGG TRIP! Now, the question is: WHEN CAN WE GO BACK?!
