Spring Break Roadtrip: Las Vegas, Antelope Canyon, Lake Havasu

Five days on the road, and over 2,000 miles later, this spring break was one to document. 

♦ Got free tickets to see Cash Cash 
♦ If you go to Rock & Reilly's, order Irish Nachos with a steak add-on. SO. GOOD.
♦ The Venetian will always be a really cool resort to walk through. 
♦ Dress codes for night clubs only apply to dudes. As long as you're a female, you'll get in no problem.
♦ Fremont Street is a must-do! Watch crazy street performers and shows, and don't forget to walk down to Container Park to check out the giant praying mantis that shoots flames out of his antennae!
♦ If you ever need to feel small, visit the Grand Canyon.
♦ Even when you're right there viewing it, it can still feel surreal.
♦ Horseshoe Bend really is just like those pictures. Absolutely incredible. However, a tip I wish we'd done was suck it up and go out there at the break of dawn to avoid all the other tourists. 
♦ Everyone needs to visit Antelope Canyon. These slot canyons can transport you to what feels like another planet. 
♦ Flagstaff, Arizona gets snow. Like, a lot of it. If we'd known we would end up spending the night there I'm sure we would've packed at least one decent it was, we went traipsing through eight inches of snow in light cardigans. Not the most ideal.
♦ According to our Lyft driver, this once popping, spring breaker getaway has died down compared to previous years. So if you're looking for a calmer location, this place isn't too bad!
♦ London Bridge. They have one in Lake Havasu City, UK flags and all. It's pretty cool.
♦ Kokomos is the hot spot to be, and if you're able to form a girl's dance group on the floor, it's a far better experience.
♦ If you're a girl wearing a hat, you're practically asking for guys to use it as an opening. Whether they comment on it or steal it. I'm just grateful I was able to dance-chase down my thief and get it back!
♦ Having a solid day spent by the pool and barbecuing is one of the best activities to do with a friend.
