Today's blog is all about our stay at the RV park housed at Circus Circus. It is located at the part of the strip that many might consider the more industrial location (which they say is starting to be a destination). Because of all the construction going on right now I tend to think that something is happening. It is not only buildings being erected but the road maintenance. Many areas start to get some work when more traffic is expected.

Las Vegas. LUVED the stained glass!
The reason we chose to stay there was because the kiddos wanted to see some more of the strip. Typically we stay on the outskirts and venture in by simply driving it. This time we walked from the rv park and hit a few of the places they wanted to see. It is not really our scene (smell, strip club card strewn eveywhere, and obscene drawings added to advertisements) which is why we do not tackle the walk very often. When thinking about Las Vegas people tend to think that it is all about the strip, drinking, bachelor parties, strippers, etc. We know that these things in addition to many others make Las Vegas what it is, but there is so much more to it. There have several libraries which ALL house art show installations. Most are well maintained and for us (homeschooling) having a source of wifi is necessary. There are cactus gardens, graffiti, and so many types of food available. Not forgetting that Red Rock is a short drive away. We actually found our new favorite Mexican restaurant named Taco Tijuana. They have two locations in Vegas. One is on Las Vegas Blvd, and the other is on Tropicana. Not only are their items delicious, but AUTHENTIC with the entire staff knowing what they are doing. Practice your Spanish when you visit! They will appreciate the effort. Below is there Facebook page if you would like to know more.

Now...how would I rate the Circus Circus RV Park:
|It's getting colder!!!!|
Rated 1-5 (with 1 being the lowest)
Convenience- 3.5 The location was ideal for seeing the strip and traveling around town. The 215 fwy is within a three minute drive. However, there was so much construction that it took three times as long to drive through during certain times of the day. Our first priority was finding a shortcut (which we did not find til the fourth day there).
|Libraries are our friends....!|
Accessibility- 4 (handicapped and little ones)- The Park has sidewalk slants for access. The park is pretty flat so both children and those in wheelchairs will be able to navigate with no problem. The only place I can think of is the laundry room. A gentleman in a motorized chair had a bit of an issue (which a gentleman who was there helped him with).
