If I Woke Up In Vegas...
So, I've been to Vegas before. It is amazing, all the light and the atmosphere! There is so much to do that you need at least a week in Vegas alone. Even though I wasn't Vegas-legal then (still not being 20), but there was still so much to see and do.

If I woke up in Vegas now, well firstly I'd think that I slept for a whole 24 hours lol. But, really, I think I would do a Courtney, I would be looking around and seeing all the sights, and really experience all that is Las Vegas. I'm not fussed about the casinos and the club's, I'm not a party person. My kind of party is sitting reading a book haha, or even having a movie marathon. 

When I was in Vegas, I was with my family and was 18 at the time. We didn't really get to see many places, and we were there for 3 days (I'm pretty sure), and we were rushing to see everything. Everything is in walking distance, and it's busy both night and day so of you're a morning person or a night owl, then you're ok anyway! 

Anyway, Vegas is a really good place to go to suit anyone. It's got a party scene (as we all know exactly why it's so famous), and lots of things to see and do. The water fountain display at night is best seen from the top of Paris. Lucky me, we got to the top just before it started.  You can see the whole strip from there, it is seriously amazing. And if you are afraid of heights, just dont look directly down, sure you're caged in at the top, but it is really high up. If you're looking at the strip, then I'm pretty sure you will be fine haha!

The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite. Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.
