ART MURALS IN DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS

Every city seems to have murals on every building for tourists and locals to see in a city .

Las Vegas , Nevada is no exception .

But it’s not the Las Vegas Strip where one sees all this art .

Venture past the Fremont Street Experience and visit the section of Downtown Las Vegas known as Fremont Street East .

There you’ll find a lot of murals.

If you can’t make the trip to Sin City , here are some of the murals that you’ll be missing .

Enjoy

MORE FEBRUARY TRAVEL QUOTES

We’re almost at the end of the shortest month of the year.

The days are going to get brighter if you happen to live here in the United States where some of us have Daylight Savings Time.

Have you been anywhere yet?

Just because there’s bad weather outside, pack those bags and travel somewhere.

Let these quotes inspire you as usual.

RIDING WITH AMERICAN AIRLINES

In my never ending quest to find cheap flights on my 30 Plus Teams Tour , I check out all of the United States and Canadian carriers I can find.

Since my 30 Plus Teams Tour only covers cities in the United States and Canada , you won’t see me checking out fares on British , Singapore or Qatar Airways , just saying .

My personal favorite airline is Southwest Airlines , mainly because they don’t charge you for checking up to two bags.

But even Southwest has gotten expensive and, sadly, they don’t fly out of Newark Liberty Airport anymore.

My second favorite carrier in the United States is Delta Airlines .

Not because I worked with them in Boston and Los Angeles , but because they finally stepped up their flying game .

That’s where American Airlines comes into the picture .

I hadn’t flown them in years and when I did, even as an employee of another carrier, I never had good experiences flying with them.

Where do I begin?

Bad service on the flight, rude customer service and even ruder flight attendants.

Not anymore .

I’m flying them more now because a girl has to get those frequent flyer miles to make even more 30 Plus Teams Tours .

American has gotten their act together and become an airline to passengers actually want to fly with.

They aren’t as unprofessional as they used to be.

(I think United Airlines has taken over as the airline people in the United States don’t want to fly with, if you ask the Sports Diva . )

Now if American can get me a cheap flight out of JFK, I’d be happy as if the New York Yankees won baseball’s World Series for the 28th time, just saying .

The seats on American are spacious , and even recline, unlike the Spirit Airlines flights that I take way too often.

They even have chargers for your electronic devices at every seat.

Some buses that I’ve been on don’t even have that.

As I mentioned, I fly out of Newark Liberty, even though JFK is basically in my backyard .

No, forget basically , JFK IS IN MY BACKYARD.

Between the planes at JFK flying over my house and the trains of the Long Island Railroad whizzing by my house at high speed , they seem to be competing to see who can make more noise when they pass by.

I do want my miles and cheaper flights , so I really don’t care if it’s Newark Liberty , JFK or even Philadelphia International that I have to go through to get that.

When I return home, God willing on March 3rd, I’m taking American Airlines again .

This time, Las Vegas to Dallas-Fort Worth to Newark Liberty .

Thank you American Airlines for making flying with you a lot more pleasant .

HELLO SAN FRANCISCO , BUT FIRST LAS VEGAS

Did you guess where I’m going to on another 30 Plus Teams Tour this time?

Even my usual peeps didn’t take a guess this time .

My 30 Plus Teams Tour is taking me to the City by the Bay.

That’s San Francisco , California , but only for a day trip.

I’m going to be spending time , God willing in my second favorite city, Las Vegas .

As usual, there will be some kind of sports stuff going on .

This is a 30 Plus Teams Tour , after all and that’s what you do, go to a sporting event .

I’m going to be exploring as much of both cities as I can in my 9 days there .

A couple of things might be crossed off my bucket list from both cities, God willing.

As usual , you’ll be coming along with me.

WHAT’S IN MY SUITCASE ?

It’s that time again.

God willing, the Sports Diva is going away somewhere for 9 days, so it’s another edition of the post that many of you seem to love a lot.

What’s in my suitcase this time.

There’s going to be a lot of walking, sightseeing , checking out a lot of famous bridges, crossing some things off my bucket list, and because this is a 30 Plus Teams Tour , you just know that a sporting event , or two , is gonna break out.

I might not bring all of this but who knows and yes,my bag is a carryon.

I’m getting creative in my packing.

No baggage fee for me.

(God willing and fingers crossed.)

Can you guess where I’m going this time?

As usual, you’ll have to wait.

In the meantime , enjoy what’s in my suitcase this time.

Making their first trip, DJ and Tyler

My cape that I’m going to wear. It’s going to be more than warm enough for where I’m going .

I’m just carrying three pairs of shoes this time. I’m going to wear the sneakers cause I’m going to be doing sprint’s through the huge airport that I’m going to be in .

Gotta have something to read besides blogs on my flights. C’mon now, didn’t you expect to see something sports related that the Sports Diva would be reading?

My big ass throw blanket from one of my Vegas Golden Knights peeps. This will more than keep me warm on the flights. This guy happens to be one of my favorite players.
