Taking in the sites after the wedding? Know the facts.
So you came to Las Vegas to get married like so many of the rich and famous have done before you. Now it is time to experience this fabulous city.
When making your plans for the ceremony, you found out that there are more chapels and churches to have a ceremony than anywhere in the world. For natural settings, you could have chosen mountains to lakes, forests to deserts. You made your choice, the deed is done, and now it is time to leave the honeymoon suite.
But did you know...
The term honeymoon relates to ancient times when a groom "kidnapped" his bride. The couple would leave and go into hiding. By the time the bride's family tracked them down, the bride would probably already be pregnant. A "bride price" would then be negotiated.
So now for the Vegas information you always wanted to know.
The Mandalay Bay Shark Reef holds approximately 1.3 million gallons of water. (No, your new in-laws may not swim with the sharks.)
Sharks at the Reef can go thru thousands of teeth in their lifetime. Some sharks have over 3,000 teeth in their mouths and may lose over 50,000 teeth during their lifetime.
A lion at the MGM Grand Lion Habitat sleeps 20 hours a day. (That reminds me of my ex-husband.)
The two largest animals in the Reef are the female sand tiger shark and the male nurse shark.
More than 80 percent of visitors to Las Vegas will indulge in buffets. That is 29 million buffets per year.
The MGM Grand is one of the world's largest hotel/casinos with more that 5,000 rooms. It would take a person 13 years and eight months to sleep in every one of them.
It took 3,300 pounds of wax to create the 100 plus portraits on display in Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum located at The Venetian. That's an amount equal to 105,000 birthday candles.
The Bellagio Fountains use more than a thousand fountains to perform in front of the hotel. The display spans more than 1,000 feet with water soaring as high as 240 feet in the air. If you stay at the Bellagio, you can tune your TV into a station and listen to the music as it accompanies the dancing waters. Room service, a beautiful view of the strip and the Bellagio Fountains with music, while lying in the arms of your new spouse...life is good.
About 150 couples get married in Las Vegas each day. So make your plans and party in fabulous Las Vegas.
