Trip Report tour of 3 national parks and vegas...

Jump to last reply

Recently returned from 10 days in the wild west with my great but cynical and judgemental family... they gave me free reign to plan this trip which was a shock, but now looking back on it i think they were very pleased with the way it turned out.

Flew from Philly to Las Vegas on Southwest...arrived late afternoon and rented an SUV from Enterprise... all of this went very smoothly and we were at the Signature MGM Grand no more than 1:15 after our flight landed. Check-in was a bit tedious however... a couple of large groups of young guys in front of me. Being that the Signature is a no-smoking, no-casino hotel, I had guessed it would be quiet and family oriented. Wrong. It is connected directly to the MGM Grand via a long walkway, and the partying goes on all night. None of this impacted us directly though, we were up on the 16th floor and slept well.

The pool looked great but was mobbed with young adults cavorting and imbibing.. I think I remember what that is like. We got ready for what felt like a late dinner, having missed 3 time zones. Very hungry, we hit Wolfgang Puck in the MGM which turned out to be the most expensive meal of the trip... I thought the food was good but family did not agree, except for dessert.

Next morning we woke up early to get ready for the trek to Utah and our first stop, Zion National Park. We were surprisingly still hungry, and didn't really want to look around for breakfast so it was back to the MGM for the buffet. I hadn't heard great things about this buffet, but it was good basic food and quite a variety. Fueled up at Starbucks for the drive, and off to Zion around 10 AM. More later.
