Lallan's Last Min Family Vegas Vacay July 2019 Day 7 - Shopping! North Outlets & Freemont Street


We never had much cash money left from our spends. It was really quit hard to judge how much spending money we'd actually need for Vegas having never been before. So we only changed $2000 worth as a base. We didn't know if we'd need double or treble that as we'd read how expensive it can be. But I am pretty frugal (read tight!) and like to make my pennies stretch so thought that was a decent starting point and had our debit cards and a Monzo card to use if we wanted to. So our plan for today was to go to the outlets and use my Monzo card for some shopping. But DH had a couple of chips that he had won and built up during the week and had went down to the casino last night. He had barley spent anything on gambling the few times he'd had a go and he came up last night having won $550 playing blackjack. So that was today's shopping fund covered 🤑!

We got ready and headed downstairs to order an Uber to North Premium Outlets. This was based on my mum's advice that it has more of the shops we like at the outlets in Florida. Uber was here quick smart and it cost $35.06.

Since we'd only snacked in the room for breakfast we were quite hungry so decided to line our bellies before any shopping so went straight to the food court. We went to South Philly where DH & I both got a cheesesteak and DS1&2 both got cheesy bacon fries and DS3 (who doesn't eat anything with any kind of sauce apart from wings!) got normal fries.






First stop was Kipling. Little bags had 70% off so down to $15 so I got myself a pink one and my mum a purple one.



Next my favorite The Cosmetics Conpany Store. Some absolute bargains on MAC make up! It was like 90% off so I got all this for $18.84 inc tax 😲😲😲






I can't remember what other stores we bought from. DH and the boys all got trainers and sport clothes from Nike and adidas, DS2 got more Vans and DS3 got some stuff from Disney store. And I got Ugg boots and Ugg slippers. We bought enough that we had to actually go to Kipling and buy another case 🙈

There was a Viva Las Vegas gift outlet that had a load of stuff for 99cents so we bought some stuff from there. And I only have a few pics of my own purchases...












We had to pack all our shopping in to the new case as we had far too many bags and we were going to Freemont Street so it would be silly to get an Uber back up to Bally's to come all the way back down. So shopping all squeezed in, we ordered an Uber to take us to The Golden Nugget. It was $13.






I really liked this hotel! Loved the Shark Tank water slide at the pool...



And the Aquarium Bar...



And we went to see the worlds largest golden nugget...



We came out of here onto Freemont Street. It wasn't dark yet so all the roof lights weren't fully on. I don't really know what I thought of Freemont St to be honest...it was, erm, interesting 🤨!?









There was a band on called Rock Steady so we stood and watched them for a bit. We got distracted by the young guy in the crowd providing some entertainment of his own lol






We walked through and also saw Heisenberg (Walt) from Breaking Bad lol...



And decided we'd saw enough of Freemont St and walked over to the Plaza and ordered an Uber back to Bally's.



Completely forgot to go to in to Binions to get our pic taken with the $1,000,000.00 😭

We got back to the hotel as the sun was setting and up to the room for a final packing of the cases.

We then went out for our last wander of the strip before retiring to the big comfy beds for the last time!💤

Well done to your hubby managing to win! We had a (small) gambling budget when we went & never won anything!
Love all your shopping bargains. I think just about everyone ends up with another suitcase, lol!
Sad that your trip is coming to an end, but you’ve had a great little holiday!
