Vegas Skyline: by Day, by Night


My hubby and I just returned from a 4 day vacation to Vegas, our first trip to sin city.

We stayed at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, and had the most amazing views from our terrace. Here is the famous Vegas Skyline: by day and by night. Isn’t it gorgeous?

I absolutely loved Vegas and cannot wait to go back. I love the energy, lights and action. True it’s a place that many come back from exhausted, yet it’s what you make of it. Go hard or find many moments to relax. All in all, it’s a location that I need to see again!

Vegas Skyline by Day

Who’s been to Vegas?




  1. I must say I’m rather envious. Would love a weekend away with hubby who is at sea at the moment. Doesn’t need to be Vegas but gosh that is definitely on the wish list.

    1. It was our first time there, a great 4 day trip! You need them every now and then, good for the soul!

    1. First timers! It was a lot of fun, lots to see and do. We even took the whole dam tour and took lots of dam photos!

    1. We aren’t either. We did throw a bit in once a day just to try it out, when in Vegas after all! Hubby was lucky, won $500 on $20 – not me though. That was penny slots too, where that $20 could last hours. Good times!

    1. It was an amazing view! Best of all, oddly quiet, you could really sit on the terrace and relax and you don’t hear a peep when trying to sleep. It was a nice trip, though I’m still trying to recover!

  2. Fabulous place and views I would love to visit Vegas 🙂

    Have a Vegustastic week 😉

  3. I can tell it’s been a long time since I’ve been to Vegas. Hm…I think it has been 20 years.

  4. Hi Tammi,

    I love the night time picture, I’d love to be there at least once in my life 🙂
    Thanks for linking up to my hop. I’ll be back with my WW post once it’s ready.

    Have a beautiful week.

  5. What an absolutely gorgeous view Tammi! My Husband loves Las Vegas and has been there many times over the years. As for me, I am the hold out. The whole “Sin City” aspect really bothers me and I have no desire to ever visit….

    1. If you can look past the bikini clad girls dancing to get people into their stores or the people trying to hand out stripper cards on every street corner – you’re good! lol
      So much else to see and do, lots of activity otherwise! lol

    1. I did a bit each day, maybe $20 at a time. Not a gambler yet when in Vegas! We played penny slots and had a great time. Kind of a cheap way for a couple hours of entertainment.

  6. what great views! I got to go once for almost a day. my friend was a flight attendant & was having an over night there & took me for the night. we walked practically the whole new part of the strip plus back to our hotel which was way off the strip AND around 3a.m.. looks like your hotel is close to the Statue of Liberty? I tried many angles to get a picture of it, but none were real clear with my puny camera, LOL!

    1. We walked and walked and walked. Even my comfy shoes weren’t so comfy by the last day. ouch!
      We were pretty close to it… I wonder if I got a photo, I can’t recall right now. So many photos to go through!

  7. I love Vegas soo much that I lived there for 15 years! I still think it’s an awesome town and am happy to have been a part of it! Thank you for those beautiful pictures :). Stopping by from Smile Monday Blog Hop!

    The Wondering Brain

    1. We debated on staying at the Wynn, yet we went to see a concert there and it was at the Cosmopolitan. So, we thought it would be handy just to stay there. Yet, we walked through the Wynn, looks like a fab place. Maybe next time!!

  8. Gorgeous view! My hubby and I went to Vegas in 2009 and loved it! I would totally go back again when not 3 months pregnant and nauseous!

    1. Yes, I agree you should wait. The walking, heat etc etc. Better left for a mini break when the kiddo is born!

  9. AWESOME pics! I love Vegas…need to go back for a third time! I was last there in 2009. It’s been too long 🙂

  10. That’s where I am right now, with my husband. We’re down the street at the Palazzo. It has been so nice! We go home today.

  11. Awesome pics! I especially love the looks of Vegas by night! 🙂 I can’t wait to visit one day!

  12. Love Vegas always a good time and I like to get a room high up with a view it’s amazing to see all the lights!

  13. I used to go to Vegas once every few years, but the last time I was there was in 2009. I’m sure it’s changed a lot since then. The city is constantly re-inventing itself.

  14. Last time I was in Vegas was 15 years ago and had no desire to return. Now I’m kind of getting the itch! LOL

  15. Beautiful photos!! We just moved to Western Canada a couple months ago so I’m hoping well get to visit Vegas, California, etc since it’s cheaper airfare then flying from the East Coast 🙂

  16. I lived in Vegas from 2001 – 2011 – I hated it! Living there is nothing like visiting. My husband and I used to go for 4 or 5 days every 6 months, and have a great time. But when you live there – it’s SO different! Yes, I know that day-to-day life is not to be likened to a vacation – but there’s so much crime, so much drugs! Nevada does not run on gaming, it runs on methamphetamine. The drug trafficking is not to be believed!

  17. I have been to Vegas a few years ago, so much fun. I love your pics, what a great view.

  18. Oh, how I miss Vegas!! Your post has inspired me to look into another trip there! So much FUN!

  19. We’ve been to Vegas and so much to do, not just gambling. We had a great trip and would love to go back

  20. Great pictures, I’ve never been to Vegas but maybe I should put it on my bucket list. Looks like a beatiful place to visit.

  21. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what
    I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too
    am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything.

    Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.
