Life is Beautiful 2017 recap (psst, it was good)

Life is Beautiful 2017 was one for the books, amiright? Food from some of the best restaurants in Las Vegas, world-renowned musicians and some of most inspiring art ever, all nestled within the warm embrace of downtown Las Vegas. In a city whose thing is great shows and attractions, this installation of LIB totes took the cake. And since we can’t be the only ones going through withdrawals, we figure that the best way to recover is to share some of our favorite pictures from Life is Beautiful Las Vegas. BRB, all of these feels have us needing to make a Kleenex run.

Comments

It gets cold in Northern Nevada. Like, Leo in “The Revenant,” type of cold. Maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but after spending the majority of my life up north, I was ready to kick the crappy weather to the curb and start working on my year-round tan. Initially, my desire to move to Las Vegas solely revolved around the weather, and that’s it. Little did I know what this city truly had to offer. Where else can you pop into a grocery store at 3 a.m. and see a showgirl buying almond milk and kale, or hit the local dry cleaners to catch a Cirque performer dropping off their costume? This town is 24/7 excitement, and I haven’t even mentioned gettin’ down at the hottest nightclub or the questionable decisions you make at sketchy downtown dive bars. Adventure in abundance is why I love Vegas. And it’s usually available where you least expect it.
