Area 52, Burning Man and the way to vacation

Captain Jack Sparrow at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas
More on vacations - one of the most interesting vacations I have had was in Las Vegas. We were on our way back from the Burning Man festival. We and are friends had some spare time and we decided to splurge, but splurge big, and I don't mean on the slot machines.

It was a rather dry and hot drive through the desert, so we took our sweet time to relax and take Jacuzzis, and towards the evening we went exploring. We visited Margaritaville where we played with incredible drinking straws, posed with a man on stilts, and went to an Area 52 bar that is decorated in the theme of UFOs and government secrecy. The most fun-filled bar i have ever seen. The next morning we found out how to get to the hotel which during the 1950's served as the rooftop outlook for watching nuclear test explosions out in the desert. Along the Vegas' main drag there is a spot where we virtually visited more than a dozen countries, all amidst laser-and hologram-lighted fountains, dance, and ride a roller coaster all in one park. One of our friends figured out other things to do in Las Vegas, and in a city where there is no limit to sightseeing opportunities this web site is the source, we had to agree. We also went on sightseeing tours, per our friends' recommendation. We saw celebrities spots, and many other eccentric people's residences, which I don't remember since I am not a celebrity fan.
