Now this title would be true if you were legally old enough to gamble, which I wasnt!
In Aus ive been drinking (legally) for 2yrs and I come to America where ive been treated like a child again. No drinking, no gambling, you cant even walk through the casino under age unless escorted by a parent. It was quiet infuriating, especially since …
Flight from Auckland to Los Angeles - 12 hours. Got rough nearing the equator. Arrived in LA at 2.15pm. Customs and Immigration was no problems. Walked across from the International to Domestic to catch American Airlines to Las Vegas. Flight was at 6.30pm. Full flight but only took 45 minutes.

DAY 5 Tuesday 31 May
Back in the car for the drive to Las Vegas. We drove through Williams to check out a bit of Route 66.

... Pretty sad isn't it? The first things we do in Vegas is go to Dennys and Walmart. In defence, we needed to stock up on snacks and drinks for the room.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Seems as the hotel is off the main strip, they provide a free shuttle to and from the hotel.
