Welcome to Paris in Las Vegas. The Eiffel Tower has an observation deck with lovely views of the Strip. Seems it is relatively undiscovered.



Looking south, development is heavily clustered along Las Vegas Blvd. Some new glassy towers have gone up over the years. The last major resort on the Strip is the yellow-glass Mandalay Bay in the distance.

















The 350m-tall Stratosphere offers thrill rides high above the city in addition to the normal observation deck.

Las Vegas' gambling industry started on Fremont Street in the early 1900s. Gambling was legalized in Nevada in 1931 and the casinos originally opened shop here with plenty of neon signs and glitter. When the focus moved to the Strip, downtown saw a dramatic decline, becoming run-down by the 80s. The government stepped in in 1994 with a $70 million revitalization project.
