Las Vegas Day 2 evening

After the amazing Cirque du Soleil "O" show we caught the tail end of another fountain show

Since after dusk they are every 15 minutes we decided to wait to watch another full show before we headed over to Paris casino to go up to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

It was so cool seeing the fountains at night with the lights.

Inside Paris was pretty cool, it was much brighter than the other casinos (although you can't really tell from this picture) because the ceiling was painting like the sky.

We waited a good 45-50 minutes in line (standing) to get our chance to go up to the top of the Eiffel Tower.... we could have purchased an express pass, but since we had a BOGO coupon for the normal ticket we just decided to rough it out and deal with the line. It was pretty amazing at the top, getting to see all the lights from up above! When we got up another fountain show was going on, but that side of the tower was crowded so we decided to wait for the next show to get a front row view.

Caesar's Palace is HUGE! (but to my surprise not the largest in Vegas, according to Wikipedia, MGM is the largest hotel. Although Caesar's looks the largest from the outside it is actually 11th out of all the Vegas hotels. Our hotel was surprisingly number 6.)

Once we finished up at the top we were ready to hit the sack! We took a cab home because my feet were KILLING me!!! Overall it was a very busy day and we got to see a LOT of Vegas!
