I know that this is a little late coming but about a month ago, Scott and I went to Las Vegas for a free trip to the Four Seasons curtious of US Bank.
It was so much fun! We flew out of Salt Lake and it was awesome! Scott got to sit next to the window which of course he loved!!! We were picked up at the airport and transported by limo van to the Four Seasons Hotel. Yes you heard me right the FOUR SEASONS!!!
For those of you who dont know, the Four Seasons is one of the nicest if not the nicest chain of hotels. The Four Seasons Las Vegas is the top 4 floors of the Mandalay Bay. It has its own enterance and everything, but is also attached to the Mandalay Bay.

Once we got there, checked in and then went up to our room. It was super nice!!! There was a bellman that brought our luggage up and everything! The bathroom was all marble, the bed was super comfortable and the view wasnt too bad either!
So that night we decided that we were going to go to the Carnival Buffet at Rio. For those of you who know Vegas the distance from Manadaly Bay to the Rio is quite a walk. So we googled it and it was about 3 miles or 1 hour walk. We thought that it wouldnt be that bad, but it was the longest walk ever!!! And the real kicker is that we had to cross I-15!!! Thankfully we made it there safe and sound although we did have a few blisters.
Dinner was okay, it was a buffet. They had so much food it was crazy! But all in all we had a good time. We didnt however walk back. We took a cab, which was super expensive! But it saved our feet.
The next morning we decided to take the shuttle down to Primm Nevada that has some AWESOME outlets. We use to go there all the time when I lived in St. George because of the awesome shopping. And of course we found some great deals including a new pair of Lucky Jeans for Scott, some clothes from Gap for me, and some perfume.

Once we got back we went to the M&M store and the Coca Cola store. The M&M store was pretty cool, but just that a store. The Coca Cola store was cool, and Scott was able to get the Coke made from real cane sugar. We also did what they call "Tastes Around The World" What this is are 16 different sodas from around the world that you get to taste. Some of them were really good, but some of them were super nasty!!!

That night we had a cocktail party around the four seasons pool. It was the first cocktail party for both Scott and I and it was definatly interesting. When we first walked in they offered us Green Beer, due to the fact that it was St. Patricks Day, and also had some Irish inspired hord'urves. Since Scott and I dont drink...we had alot of Diet Cokes and Shirley Temples.
The next morning we Scott had some training to go to and then we decided to take the monorail to the North part of the Strip. WOW is all I have to say...it was kinda sorta white trashville. We went to Sahara to go on a roller coaster and for Scott to do a Nascar like simulation. He of course totally beat everyone and took 1st place, cause he is amazing like that!

After we went to the Imperial Palace to go and see Vegas's largest car show. It was pretty sweet. It was inside the hotel on the 4th floor and was just tons and tons of cars! One of the coolest ones was Dean Martins Rolls Royce that seriously only had like 10K miles.
This car was awesome!
Us dressed up at the Banquet Dinner
That night we went to the awards banquet. Oh, I forgot to even say why we got this free trip. So Scott was in the top 5% of all the bankers for USBank and thus we got the free trip. So the awards banquet dinner was, of course also at the Four Seasons. The food was awesome!!!
Our Dinner at the Four Seasons!
Scott got to walk up to the stage and get his award and all in all it was a great night! After we just went back to our room and got ready to leave the next morning.
The next morning we had to wake up fairly early to catch the bus to get to the airport. All in all it was a really fun trip! Thanks to USBank for taking us!
