Most people go to Las Vegas with lots of money, leave with no money and consider it a great time. But you actually can visit Las Vegas and have a great time without going broke. In between rolling the dice, make sure you take a break and visit some of these awesome local attractions with your pup.
Lady luck treated Mr. Eko to a great week in Sin City
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Dog Park – Sunset Dog Park – The dog park isn’t huge, but it doesn’t have to be. Even the mighty Eko didn’t want more room to run. At Sunset your dog will romp in the sun for a while and then quickly join you in the shade to cool off.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Walking Tour – The Strip – No matter why you’re in Vegas, you owe it to yourself to take a stroll down the Strip and marvel at the spectacle of it all. Make sure to do the walk at night to get the full experience.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Hike – Frenchman Mountain – This hike is not for the faint of heart! Between the steep inclines, the rocky terrain and the desert heat, you and your dog will need to put in some serious effort to conquer Frenchman. If you have the mettle to reach the top, you will be rewarded with a view of the city that few ever see.
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Hotel – La Quinta – The newly built La Quinta just south of the airport was a great home base for our trip. If you are a high roller you can get your dog into just about any hotel on the strip, but it seems like more hassle than it’s worth. We had a corner room by the door and could hop right into our car and go. As an added bonus it is also the closest hotel to Sunset Dog Park
A.W.E.S.O.M.E Event – Pet-A-Palooza – Like us, maybe you’ll get lucky and your trip to Vegas will happen to coincide with this awesome festival. If you have the chance, go! It’s a very unique and fun event.
We hit it big in Vegas without ever stepping into a casino. If you and your pup are up for some serious outdoor adventures then you will definitely want to add Vegas to your itinerary.
The temperature is rising here in Phoenix, but Eko is itching for a run so we are going to head over to Chaparral Dog Park to see how long he lasts. Let us know if you’re around!
