As you can see from this post and the last, the Rio is a pretty fun place.  They have a VooDoo Beach with pools shaped like shells… I know because my room overlooked them (see pics below).

You also have got to love the view from my room. I started getting a bit picture happy taking them at night, during the day, and at sun rise (the pictures with a little color in the sky).

Unlike Tunica, the servers at the casino are guys and girls.  At the Rio, they also have some extra talent as they will sometime stop, walk up to a stage and do a song.

I usually try to find something wrong with the casinos I stay in just so you know I’m not just doing some free marketing. In Rio’s case, it is hard.  The room was top-notch, the casino has a fun vibe, the bars and pools are nice, and I even like their person on Twitter.  I guess the biggest negative for them is that they are a bit off the strip. They do run shuttles every 30 minutes over to Harrah’s and Bally’s so this isn’t a big deal.  I certainly had no problem visiting the rest of Vegas as you will see in Part 4.

This pictures are all around the Rio in Vegas. Pictures of Vegas were from my room. Note Chippendale’s and the Build your own Whopper.
