    Nice TR! What great parents you two are, your boys will forever remember this trip.
    I’m surprised the boys didn’t hit a jackpot with beginners luck.

    A John Smith, I presume? My better half always inquires at GRPG if they have a secret stash available as we don't get this brew up here.

    Very nice report, btw...thanks for sharing!!

    @No7Out Hi! I loved the sky suites experience at Aria and the restaurant selection there is great. It's also nice that it's so close to Crystals for shopping and sometimes the fact that it's less crowded is a pro. For Bellagio it's hard to beat staying in a suite with a fountain view and I like the fact that it's on the strip as opposed to sitting back like Aria does. I actually like that Bellagio tends to be a little bit busier and has more energy. Also, when we visit in the warmer months it's really hard to top the Bellagio pool and cabanas. We also like the restaurants at Bellagio and the shopping there too. Both have great features and I wouldn't hesitate to stay at either but I think for me Bellagio will always edge Aria out just a bit. I'm sure on our next visit we will go back to Aria though to visit some of the restaurants we enjoyed and I do actually like the Lobby Bar and Lift Bar at Aria a bit better than the bar options at Bellagio.

    @Daryl as you can probably tell I'm a bagaholic so my interest in Vegas Dave is because of his outrageous Birkin and bag collection! lol I was just shocked to see him in person with one of his more famous bag purchases in tow!
