“Live:” From Las Vegas

There’s so much to see and do in the Las Vegas area, and I don’t mean just gambling, because everyone knows about that. Buildings have been refurbished and some even destroyed to make room for other more lavish casino/hotels.

Treasure Island Hotel has its own amusement park. The Venetian has shops and restaurants and connects to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum.

The ceiling of The Venetian is breath taking.

A real person statue. I sure wouldn’t want that job.

Part of Fremont Street has been enclosed and now has a carnival atmosphere. Where you could once drive down the street and see the huge cowboy waving, now you stroll by him on the way to other gambling/entertaining adventures. I wanted a photo of the cowboy lit up, but he wasn’t turned on until after dark and by then we were blocks away watching brave men and women zip line along Fremont Street’s ceiling. I wanted to take a photo of them, but my I-phone camera decided it was too full of other shots like me and the KISS impersonators and those Marvelous Marvel heroes.

There was an “Elvis” too and I would’ve loved to get his photo and a man who looked like Sonny Bono, but my I-phone camera didn’t start working again until we got home. I know this because it tried to take a photo of the guest room bed. Silly camera!

    Maybe I should hang out with you while your camera’s not working. My person is always making me wait while she takes pictures.

  2. Looks like a lot of fun, Sandy, and some pics I’ve seen, too. I’ve ridden the gondolas which were fun and many beautiful sites, not just gambling…
