Vegas Staycation Part 01

Hey blog world!

So boyfriend and I recently did a staycation in downtown Vegas. It’s the last school break for him before Christmas so we wanted to do something fun but inexpensive. I’m keeping this post relatively short because we have a few other plans for our collaboration.

I got us a room at Downtown Grand and hurray it was free! All we had to pay was the resort fee but we got a late checkout and a free upgrade courtesy of my Expedia Elite Gold membership. The room was pretty fabulous with super cute retro colors and furniture and a really gorgeous view of Fremont Street. 

Our first stop was lunch and I took boyfriend to one of my personal downtown Vegas faves- Mermaids Casino. The Nathan’s Hot Dog stand inside Mermaids is a fave for locals, tourists, and foodies. No joke, I have friends who primarily do five star dining in Vegas but made this a priority on one of their many Vegas trips. It’s greasy, cheap, deep fried goodness at its best. Plus- lunch for both of us was $11 total. 

Our next stop was another one of my faves that I don’t get to nearly enough. The California hotel is a Hawaiian themed casino right off Fremont Street and offers lots of island favorites. It also houses one of my favorite ice cream spots in town- Lappert’s. Nothing like macadamia nut ice cream to beat the early fall 100 degree temperature!
