Last month, Mr. Big and I hit up Las Vegas for a good friend's 40th birthday party. It was a huge reunion with great friends and in a location to have some f-u-n. Mr. Big is a bit tentative about Las Vegas (he's only been there once before), while I was raring for a good time. So you can only imagine his absolute shock when I voluntarily spent at least two hours working out at the gym each day. (That is not typical of me at the moment).
You see, we didn't really understand the whole concept behind Green Valley Ranch Resort before getting there. It's an off-strip resort that is designed to the nines. Rates are reasonable along with normal prices for food, goods, spa treatments, etc. (I feel so uncomfortable paying the ridiculously high prices at the fancy hotels on the strip). And bonus, the casino is fun! We certainly ventured to the strip...but ended up having just as much fun at Green Valley.
But then they throw in one of the most beautiful spas that I've ever experienced. And it's not one of those places where you have to have a treatment to enjoy the amenities. If you're staying there, it's yours to enjoy. (And I did!)
L-o-v-e-l-y. (Apparently lovely enough that I whipped out my camera!). And don't worry, I still rallied for the casino. Mr. Big's first trip to the craps table proved quite profitable.
After being really skeptical about the resort at first, we had a blast. Definitely worth a try!
