The first time I went to Las Vegas, Nevada, it was for a work conference. I wasn’t sure if I’d ever make it back to visit again, so I wanted to make the most of it while I had the chance. I’m not a gambler, and I didn’t want to pay hundreds of dollars to see a live show, so I entertained myself with a challenge: see and do as much as possible … for under $20. 

Over the years, I returned to Vegas for a few more work obligations, but Mike and the boys had never seen it. It seemed like a fun change of pace after days and days of hiking and national parks, so we headed that direction on our way from the Grand Canyon to San Diego, California. 

We began our adventure at the place where my first Vegas adventure started — the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. What was the same? The giant bronze lion statue at the entrance. What was different? The trip to the emergency room. Click the link to read more on We Married Adventure!
