Our first visitors are set to fly in Saturday evening. We haven't seen my parents since we left MN 16 months ago, so I'm very excited to see them again and show them where we live.
They've both been to Vegas before, but hopefully we'll be able to show them around from a more local perspective.
I'm sure we'll still do the typical Vegasy things.
Like walk around the Strip.
And visit Downtown Vegas and the Fremont Street Experience.
We're also hoping to take them to see the Hoover Dam. This is the one thing my dad said he wanted to do.
I also really want to take them hiking in Red Rock Canyon. I've not been yet, and it's something I've wanted to do since we got here.
I'll have to do a little research on which trail(s) to set out on. I'm a sucker for a waterfall, so I'm very tempted to have us do the First Creek Waterfall trail.
Maybe we'll hit up a show or go to a museum. I bet my dad would love the Mob Museum or the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort.
Oh, yes, and I'm going to try to schedule a tour of the Review Journal, too. I've worked there for over a year and never got the tour, so I figured this would be the perfect excuse. I need to remember to ask my co-worker about this.
I'm going to try to take lots of pics of our adventures while they're in town, for those of you who can't come visit. Disclaimer: None of the pics in this post are mine; I found them all on Google images.
