Cirque du Soleil and Changes at Vegas


  We enjoyed the Cirque du Soleil show Mystere so much last year that we decided to see another Cirque show this year. Our first choice was sold out so went to LOVE.  It was great, even better than Mystere! The show is very high energy featuring dancing and acrobatics, elaborate costumes and sets, and huge video screens. There’s so much going on that it’s hard to decide what to watch. Each scene features a blending of Beatles songs and loosely follows important events in their lives and careers.

  Seating for guests in wheelchairs is somewhat restricted but all the seats have a good view so it’s not that important. If you’re ordering tickets online chose the “Pick My Seats” option which will bring up the accessible seating.  Check the website for specials before ordering.

  We always park in the alleyway parking area behind Ballys and walk/roll everywhere. This has been a good spot, actually the only spot near the strip, where RVers could stay overnight without being disturbed. However this option is gone, probably for good, because the entire area is going to become paid parking. This might be our last year to visit the strip.

  A better change is the The Park located between New York-New York and Monte Carlo which features restaurants, bars, and a quiet area to sit under shade trees. The centerpiece is a 40’ metal sculpture of a dancing woman called Bliss Dance. Go during the day to see the extraordinary workmanship but don’t miss the nighttime view with LED lights inside the sculpture and colored lights playing across the mesh skin. She was original built for Burning Man and has found a permanent home in Vegas.

  1. Hmmm, in all our years traipsing around this earth, we've never seen a Cirque du Soleil show. In fact, I didn't know there was more than one. Maybe one day. Las Vegas doesn't cotton to boondockers, just show me your money!

    1. I took us a long time to finally get around to seeing one but they're definitely worth it!
      I'm hoping another boondocking spot pops up somewhere. :-)
