Throwback Thursday – Viva Las Vegas

Each time I’ve gone to Vegas there has been something new to see and eat, a great show to watch, another mega themed hotel, and interesting people doing interesting things.  I’ve seen it all from the living statues hustling a buck to the ladies of the night hustling a buck 😉  I’ve seen fights and drunks and drunks fighting, some very interesting choices in clothing (or barely clothed), and the amazing floral displays that the Bellagio conservatory puts out five times a year.  It is incredible what they can create using flowers.   And I won’t mention the shopping but oh the shops they have from the usual souvenir shops to so high end it’s out of this world.

Vegas is a place you should try to see at least once in your lifetime.  And like in New York City for New Year’s Eve (but without it being as bone chillingly cold) you can be in the middle of the street happily dancing away with a few thousand of your best friends you never knew you had to ring in the new year!  Yes, I’ve done that in both cities 🙂  These photos were captured on our trip there in 2010.

    Nice selection of photos. I agree…It is worth seeing at some point in your life, if only for a day or two.

    I cannot believe I’ve never been to Vegas, but I haven’t!!

    The conservatory at the Bellagio is always a treat. We lived in Vegas in the early nineties and watched the Luxor and New York New York being built. It was a fun four years with always something to see and do. That said, it’s a great place to VISIT.

      Visit is good! Living there? Don’t think I could handle it. Visiting the conservatory is always a must when we visit. I was out there once when they imploded one of the old casinos…that was wild!

    We live here and can’t wait to leave- though it is not as bad as the media or the occasional visitor would have you believe. The problem is The Strip itself. Visitors rarely explore beyond the boundaries between Tropicana and Sahara. We never used to go on The Strip but now I love it since deciding to chronicle the buildings there. It is not unlike a carnival morning, noon and night and I plan on taking more street photography instead of only architecture in the near future!

      The street photography there is a riot! Oh the things I saw!!! Yeah, most people think of Vegas as that one street but we ventured off and saw more of it.
