Epic views of the strip from our room fslasvegas 👀 From the other side of our room we could see over the Mojave Desert and mountains 🏜 #sponsored .
The Vegas strip isn’t a normal street with normal hotels, these buildings are massive attractions and you can walk miles around and between just a few of them 🙈 Walking around Vegas is time consuming and tiring, which can become very uncomfortable in the blistering heat, so where you choose to stay can make a big difference, especially if you have kids!
The Vegas sign is a 15 minute walk from fslasvegas 😱 which was a breeze in Jan with the cooler temps. It is the closest hotel to the famous sign and has access to the best transport links in the City, which are FREE! We’ve stayed on the other side and other end of the strip in the past, which only has access to the chargeable monorail service. It is still a brilliant transport link, but we found that we had to spend quite a bit of money every day, just to reach the shops, restaurants, attractions and other hotels.
While the Four Seasons is next to some of the most iconic hotels on the strip so you’re never far from the action, it’s also right at the start, so it enjoys a quiet position without hundreds of people piling through the door, just to get to the next hotel 🙌🏼
Let’s not forget to mention waking up to this mouth watering breakfast delivered to our room #WakeUpWithFS 🤤 for those days you don’t want to leave the room at all 😆
If you have any Vegas questions, let us know below and we will answer them 👇🏼😍🙌🏼

We took our local family hiking to the next level today, with a 5 mile trek. We’ve done portions of this trail before, but never the whole loop. We were rewarded with awesome views, sore legs, and a sense of accomplishment.

Hello Reno! carrasykes and I are on our first road trip with baby Walt! I'm so excited to have partnered with travelnevada again to explore the free range art highway! Follow us along this psychedelic, open-air odyssey across the Silver State where we will encounter awesome art, wide-open roads, and everything in between.

Very fond memories of when Sue the T. rex so graciously welcomed visitors to The Discovery. We miss our visitors and we miss Sue! #stayhomefornevada
