Las Vegas Strip

Las Vegas Strip

“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” – Jeff Candido and Jason Hoff, advertising slogan written for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, 2002

During my vacation in LA in  October of 2007 we took a road trip and spent one night in Las Vegas – The Entertainment Capital of the World, famous for the number of casino resorts and associated entertainment. The city’s tolerance for various forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and this image has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films and television programs

Las Vegas offers a lot of shows, concerts,  and plays to watch but the major attractions are the casinos. The most famous hotel casinos are located on Las Vegas Boulevard, better known as the Las Vegas Strip. Outdoor lighting displays are everywhere on the Las Vegas Strip and are seen elsewhere in the city as well. As seen from space, the Las Vegas metropolitan area is one of the brightest on Earth.

We watched the fountain show at the Bellagio and played pachinko pushing our first time luck but that machine was really hard to beat, we just burned our dollars on that piece of crap! In the morning we invaded another factory outlet to release our frustrations.
