We’re going to Vegas July 19th to 23rd.
Still not sure where we’re staying yet. Thinking between The Mirage, Paris, Aria, and Treasure Island.
I really want to see a Cirque show but not sure which to see. I was thinking between “O” and Love. But a friend’s favorite is Mystere…
SO I need suggestions…
Even on other stuff to do in Vegas if you want 🙂 We’ve never been.

The Beatles “LOVE” Cirque show is amazing!! I know numerous people who have gone to see it multiple times because it is just that good.
Ideas for other Vegas things: gambling (obviously). If you like dancing, the clubs in the evenings are a lot of fun. The pools at the nicer hotels are beautiful for relaxing. There is tons of shopping and great restaurants (lots of famous chefs have restaurants in Vegas). You can also take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon – a little expensive but would be an awesome experience on your minimoon.

I love Cirque…seriously talented people! I have seen a lot of them, but it depends on what you want to see.
Mystere – very typically Cirque show, lots of acrobatics, very cool
Love – so much fun! All Beatles music, less acrobatic and more dance
Ka – martial arts themed, very dynamic stage that moves all over the place, you can actually follow the story in this show
O – one of my favorites, water show, very interesting, get a mix of acrobatics/diving
Zumanity – adult/burlesque show, very risque, contains nudity, not a typical Cirque show (still has acrobatics and great athleticism), so I would say to pick one of the others is you really want the Cirque experience
Hope that helps – if you have more specific questions about each one, let me know!

Do not see Zumanity! I didn’t really enjoy it…I was expecting a real Circque experience.

Hotel-wise, I would try to stay at Aria (it’s amazing!!), Encore, Wynn, or Bellagio. These are the nicest hotels (since you’re going on a minimoon after all)! 🙂
Shows: I’ve only seen Le Reve (Wynn), O (Bellagio), and LOVE (Mirage). They are really expensive, but worth it! 🙂

That helps a lot!! I’m really torn between Love and O I think… Fiance and I love the Beatles. After the ceremony we’re walking out to “All you need is love” and “Here Comes the Sun”.
But the water one sounds really neat too!
As for other things to do… we were thinking of going to the Grand Canyon but have decided against it. I hate driving so being in the car for 3-4 hours while on holidays, just doesnt appeal to me. So we’re going to go to the Hoover dam instead.

I’ve seen O and Zumanity. O was breathtaking and I’d see it again 🙂 Zumanity did have the nudity but that didn’t bother me. But it didn’t have the amazing factor like the other Cirq shows have. I’ve seen two other Cirq shows that travel the us and they had more WOW factor then Zumanity.
I love going into the lobby areas of all the Hotels to check them out. They are reall neat/beautiful/etc. Go to the Conservatory at Bellagio, they have a changing theme for the season with the flowers.
Rent a convertible and drive to the Grand Canyon. Fun little road trip.
In Paris Paris there is a free lounge area where they use to have live music. I’m guessing they still have that. Go to Margaritville for dinner and drinks one night too.

- Wedding: September 2010 - Heinz Chapel Ceremony, Museum Reception
I’ve seen LOVE, O, Ka, and Mystere. In my opinion, there’s NO question, LOVE is the best!!!!

Keep the suggestions coming 🙂

I saw Ka recently and didn’t think it was worth the money. It wasn’t horrible, but for $100 a pop I didn’t think it was worth it. We were with some friends who live in Vegas and they were really disappointed. They said O was WAAAAAAAAYYY better and would highly recommend seeing O.
I haven’t seen any other shows, but my parents saw Love and said it was amazing.

I dont know anything about Cirque shows, but out of the hotels you are suggesting, I would stay at the Mirage. I stayed at TI before and there are kids everywhere and the pool sucks.
I mostly go to Vegas to party :o) but for non-partying things, I would recommend the Secret Garden at the Mirage. And Margaritaville is really fun too!

I think I’m leaning towards the Mirage for sure… Fiance doesnt know this yet 🙂

If you stay at the Mirage, and decide you want to see LOVE, see if they have any deals for you. Many hotels will offer 2 for 1 tickets or two free tickets with your booking, if you are staying at their hotel and they have a show in house there!
I have stayed at TI, and while it was nice, the other hotels you were considering are nicer in general and a bit more central on the strip. I would lean towards the Mirage if I were you too! Beautiful hotel!

I’ve seen delerium – and I must say it was good but I dont think I’d recommend it – esp if you can only see one!

Ohhhh good tip about the 2 for 1 if the show is playing at the hotel we’re staying at! Probably wouldn’t have thought of that.
