Las Vegas - Day 3
February 2011
Saturday turned out to be nice weather-wise so after breakfast at the Paris' le Village Buffet we went to see the fountain show at Caesars Palace and then next door to Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage. After a lunch at Caesars, we were off to the Venetian to stroll along the Grand Canal and watch the gondolas. We walked through the Pallazo before heading to Circus Circus to see some of the circus acts. We ended the night at the Rio for their huge Carnival World Buffet.
