RENO & VEGAS Nevada

A Trip on the VEGAS Strip

I made a 4-day visit to this city on the 2nd week of August (via Bellingham) and
it was really sweltering hot but the place was thick with people.

Just a small note - that when I first visited this city way back in 2004, my
initial reaction was kind of dislike - I saw lots of "fakes" of landmarks and
classical statues but then I realized this city has its own character.
It's one of a kind in a sense that there is a large concentration of really
big hotels with thousands of rooms and those "landmarks" absolutely cost
fortune of money. Buffets are really great and cheap and I'm still
carrying the 8 pounds I gained. (this is really one I deslike)

I uploaded first shots of buildings I considered iconic and were constructed
after 2004. The rest will be uploaded chronologically (a thousand or so)
I will appreciate your comments/related infos and may you enjoy them.

This thread has potential, I'll follow it
The airport seems very organized and clean, and the City Center project is so huge
Nice photos

Thank you guys for your kind comments. I really appreciate that.

The Eiffel Tower(Vegas) is about 167 meters high as compared to Paris which is about 300 meters
