Viva Las Vegas - Part 2

**Click pictures to enlarge**

This is the second post about my travels to Las Vegas, NV. The picture above was taken before we left to go to the airport, which is why Natashia isn't pictured, she met us at the airport. 

The two things that were on our agenda since we first planned this trip back in January were pool parties and clubs. We all did individual research and came together, in group chat, to discuss what we found. We all put our ideas out there and came together with a pretty solid game plan. However, when we arrived in Vegas, and throughout our trip, we did things on a whim. Some things that we preplanned made this list, while others are still on our to-do list for when we go back.

Drai's Beach Club

Aside from the pool party at our hotel (Flamingo Hotel) we attended a pool party at the popular Drai's Beach Club located inside The Cromwell. Drai's Beach Club is a rooftop pool that doubles as a club at night. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a picture of the club area and we didn't get a chance to attend the night club, but it is definitely on my to-do list when I go back.

My favorite aspect about Drai's was the scenery and the view. You couldn't see the entire strip but you could see some of the most famous sites from the pool. 

The Flamingo GO Pool

The Flamingo GO Pool was our go-to place when we wanted to waste time. The best part of being on vacation is having the option to be lazy. And no better place to lay back and catch some rays in your favorite bikini and matching sunnies than the pool. 

We met some funny characters at the GO Pool. The most comical group of guys we met were 3 guys from the UK who were wandering around with a toy phone. According to them the phone was real, you could make calls AND take selfies. Of course we took selfies, what girl doesn't love a good selfie?! Even if its on a toy phone. Lol. We also met some funny guys from our hometown and this group of ladies on a bachelorette party trip from Canada.Unfortunately, we didn't snap a picture with those lovely ladies.

The one thing that all of us girls agreed on doing, and stuck to it, was nightclubs. We made a few mistakes along the way but we did end up attending some great clubs. The first night, we fell asleep after a long day of traveling and never went out at all, I know we suck! Blame it on the 3 hour time difference. But the second night we vowed that wouldn't happen again and we made it out to  Surrender Nightclub.

Surrender Nightclub

Surrender is located at the beautiful Wynn Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. The atmosphere at the club was nice but it was our least favorite club. The music was okay, we prefer more Hip Hop music and this club played more Pop.  Since the club was not our scene we left after only being there for a little over an hour. I didn't get any pictures inside the club but I'll post the link to the website so that you guys can check it out for yourself. Surrender Nightclub

Haze Nightclub

The next night we attended Haze Nighclub at the Aria. The music was a mix between Hip Hop and Pop so it was perfect and much better than the night before. We took pictures and danced the night away to some great music. The highlight of our night, was meeting this really nice guy, who we later found out was a NFL Rookie, who told us that we were beautiful and that he loved black women. Shout out to him for being the nicest guy we met in Vegas!

The one thing I will warn you all about, DO NOT purchase tickets, wristbands or anything else from people on the strip. We made that mistake and learned that all the things they sell you on the strip are already FREE. However, you can use the people on the strip for information about what clubs to go to. You tell them what kind of music you like and they can point you in the right direction. 

Well, that about raps up my posts about Vegas. I covered as much as I could, while not stepping into the "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" territory. I hope Vegas through my eyes has inspired someone to go and have a great time. If you have any additional questions about anything that I didn't cover in these posts you can tweet me. My Twitter.
