Wednesday was Heather and Ryan’s last day in Las Vegas and since Ryan is an aquarium enthusiast, we decided to take in the Shark Reef aquarium at the Mandalay Bay. It turned out to be a very good exhibit, if a bit smaller than the advertisements might lead you to believe. It was very crowded during our visit but certainly would be a good outing if you could visit on a less hectic day. They provide self guided audio tour recorders that allow you to go to your own pace. The walk thru tunnels in the large tanks allows a great vantage point to enjoy the fish in a simulated natural environment.
After completing the tour, we did a quick tour of the Mandalay Bay shops and then strolled to the Luxor to see the inside of the now famous pyramid of Las Vegas. All were impressed with the structures.
We then rendezvoused with Katie and headed to a Mediterranean restaurant which we had enjoyed last winter. We enjoyed dishes from Greece and Persia.
