USA – Las Vegas; The City that never sleeps (1)

Hi!! Hope you enjoyed my earlier series on my day trip to Grand Canyon. If you have missed it, you can drop in and have read; USA – Spectacular view of Grand Canyon

Well this is the continuation from my Grand Canyon trip back to Las Vegas. By the time I reached LV, it was already close to 8pm plus.

The tour bus dropped me back at my motel and I headed straight to Fermont  street as I wanted to catch the Light and Sound show which illuminates the 1,400 feet long Space Frame. This space is 90 feet in height along Fremont Street from Main Street to Fourth Street and has created a spectacular foyer for the existing resorts.

Well you can’t tell anyone that you been to Las Vegas unless you have been to the Strip or Las Vegas strip which is the Las Vegas Boulevard. In fact Las Vegas bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its mega casino–hotels and associated entertainments.

Since 24 hour  pass to all RTC Residential Routes, Strip & Downtown Express (SDX) and Deuce on the Strip. Now it’s USD8 (cant remember how much was it back then). Got into one, paid and took the ride till nearly the end of the Strip. Got down at the NY/NY Hotel & Casino.

It was still busy and so brightly lighted up at 10 pm. Could feel the heat from all the neon lights even the weather was a quite cool.

As usual I would stroll down the strip in direction I came from; back tracking.
