09.30.15 Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate and more!

Wednesday, September 30, 2015 –  We rested all morning and took a ride hersheys onto the Las Vegas Strip to visit Hershey’s Chocolate World, M&M’s World, MGM Grand Casino and Hotel and New York New York Casino and Hotel.

They are all on the same block so it made for a good first outing! This will probably be one of the most colorful posts with all the colorful chocolates we saw!

mmmmmmWe parked at New York New York and walked through the casino in search of Hershey’s Chocolate World which is a two story amazing world of chocolates!

Below are some random outdoor Las Vegas Strip photos from high up and from street level.  It’s a lot classier place than I thought it would be.  It’s clean and very attractive, people aren’t wandering round obviously inebriated and the temperatures weren’t overwhelmingly hot.  It is 100 plus degrees here right now but the city didn’t feel like it.
