When in Vegas, I do love the night photography. Three mandatory stops along the way would the following:
- Fountain Show at the Bellagio
- Volcano eruption at the Mirage
- Sirens wailing at Treasure Island
Seeing the fountains of the Bellagio is the easiest attraction to see, especially when it’s colder in the Vegas winter. There will be no one jostling you for position, blocking your shots or pushing you out of the way. The show is on every 15 minutes, and if different from the feature fountain show at noon. Here’s also what to do in 5 hours at the Bellagio.
After the fountains, we thought that we had time to catch the Volcano eruption at the Mirage and Sirens of Treasure Island. Unfortunately, this wasn’t to be … since it was 11:45pm
So at that point, there was only two things to do
- Wander around taking more night shots
- Getting alcoholic slushies at Fat Tuesday
- Making some money at Blackjack
After all that walking around, one is going to get thirsty and no other way to quench that thirst than by heading over to Fat Tuesday some ridiculously sweet sugary drinks filled with overproof alcohol. You have a bunch of daiquiri flavors offered at Fat Tuesday are 190 Octane (pace yourself), Cat 5 Hurricane, Mango, Margarita, Pina Colada, Strawberry and Raging Bull. Extra shots of your favorite hooch are just another $1. They even have the 100-ounce “Super Mug.” I wouldn’t attempt to drink this in all one shot … it’s just not worth it.
There are 7 locations throughout the Vegas strip, but we chose to head to the one at the Quad (or the old Imperial Palace).
Not only does this place have tons of flavours, but you can mix them and create your own concoctions and mashups.
