The Entertainment Capital of the World! Las Vegas is known for its many casinos, and most of the famous ones are found along the Strip. It's a large road, Las Vegas Blvd, that goes straight through most of the city. Some of the most famous hotels and casinos are Caesar's Palace, MGM Grand, and The Venetian.
Casino Royale, The Venetian, Palazzo, and Harrah's. Several of the Casinos of the Strip in one picture.
Treasure Island is one of many Casinos on the Strip. The themes for this Casino are pirates.
A fairly new attraction to Las Vegas is the Fashion Show. A huge upscale shopping mall in the center of the Strip.
A street slightly off the Strip. As soon as you go outside of the Strip, Las Vegas looks like most other large American cities.
Downtown Las Vegas has seen lots of construction and improvement in recent years. This is where Las Vegas once started, but today it's surpassed by the Strip as the main destination for tourists in Las Vegas.
Downtown Las Vegas can be cozy and well worth a visit. But I still prefer The Strip.
T-Mobile Arena is a newly built multi-purpose indoor arena and home to the first professional sports team in Las Vegas - Vegas Golden Knights in NHL.
The Stratosphere is the tallest structure in Las Vegas, but as a Casino, it's pretty much outside of where the life of the city is.
The Skyline of Downtown Las Vegas.
Treasure Island, with Palazzo on the other side of the street.
