Just another day in Paradise.

Discuss all things Las Vegas. Hotels, restaurants, good deals, airfares, cabbies, conventions, shows, etc.

Just another day in Paradise.

Post by billryan »

Now that the summer heat has broken, the weather in the Valley just can't be beat.
Henderson has an amazing system of walking and hiking trails, well designed for older users.
Boulder City also has spectacular trails but they are a bit more challenging.
Took my dog for a quick hike before meeting friends for brunch at a dog friendly eatery.
It's well over two years since I moved here, but every time I hit a summit and the whole valley is laid out before me, I still can't believe I'm here.
Uprooting ones self thousands of miles to pursue a passion is hard. It would have been easy to stay in NY, but then I'd never know what I want to be when I grow up.
Last night, I was at a show where a young performer brought the house down singing a song I'd never heard of, called A Million Dreams.
Listening to it, it struck me hard.
I truly live in the world I used to have to close my eyes to see.
If we could just get an ocean a bit closer, this would truly be paradise.

Sounds like you made the right decision. At one point I thought I would retire to Las Vegas as well. May still happen, but now have grandkids here in Monmouth county NJ and still have a business that is too good to give up. So I deal with the winters as best as I can. They are not brutal, but just a pain in the ass. Similar to Long Island.

I'm sure I made the right choice.
I'd heard the medical choices here were limited, but I can't say anything bad about my personal experiences.
NYC is five hours away. Close enough for me.

64 degrees this morning. Hilarious to see some people jogging in shorts while others wear winter coats.

Always go to the UNLV hospital....never EVER go to the hospital over by the stratosphere. I worked in and around Vegas for almost 14 years (1992-2005), and while I lived in LA and San Fran, I spent enough time in vegas during those years where it was essentially a second (or third) home. True, it's changed in the last decade, but trust me, avoid that hospital over by the Strat (it was so awful i forgot it's official name)

Um, the Guadalupe Medical Center? That's the nearest hospital over by the "Strat."
