We made the mistake of parking at the Luxor Casino which meant we had to walk through the entire casino to get to the tram that would take us to Mandalay Bay. That mistake would make it about a two mile walk just to get to the Shark Reef exhibit.
After the Shark Reef, the plan was that we would take the tram to the Excalibur Casino, walk to the MGM Grand Casino and take the Monorail to Caesar's Palace. It all sounds pretty easy, but it's not. As you start to walk through a casino you realize just how big they are.

At the end of our first two mile walk and we were finally at the Shark Reef. The Shark Reef is set up as if you were in a sunken shipwreck at the bottom of the ocean. The tanks are all around you, above and below.
|Boy, I would really like to touch this guy.|
|This guy was cool though.|
|They were feeding the swordfish. See the man with the long tube?|
We finished viewing the aquarium and head back to the tram.
There are escalators everywhere in Vegas which is a good thing because all of the walking is on concrete or marble or something similar. There is no grass, except the kind that you smoke and I don't think they call it that anymore?
Escalators. They are even outdoors. You take the escalator up to the bridge, walk over the street and then take the escalator back down. There is no climbing up the mountain in Vegas.
We're off the tram and notice we are getting closer to the MGM Grand where we will take the monorail to Caesar's Palace. How much farther do you think it is to the monorail?
Another bridge over the street.
And we're walking....
We walk by expensive looking shops. Violin Chick would love these boots.
Or maybe these?
As we walk we see a lot of women wearing high heels. I don't know about you, but my feet are already starting to hurt and we're only halfway to Caesar's Palace. (When we came back by this store, these boots were gone. Violin Chick, did you buy them?)
|I am not wearing my hiking boots, but I wish I were.|
