You won't regret. It's my fourth time in Vegas and i'm still amazed.

There is a lot of kids in Las Vegas and they see these kind of things all the time. If their parents have a problem with that they shouldnt take their children on a vacation to LV.
Technically prostitution is not legal in Vegas, but escort service is and that's what the hookers use in the ads to cover their real business.

I dont like the Luxor hotel , they could've designed it so much better , it only looks nice at night with all the lights, in daytime it's just a big ugly triangle.

Cool pics but to me it is more of an amusement park than a city. I'm sure you had fun though.
