Las Vegas, Nevada, is like a Disney playground for adults.  There is nowhere else in the world like it.  It is a place where elegant gondolas, erupting volcanoes, real live lions, real pink flamingos, ancient Rome, the New York skyline, Statue of Liberty, Egyptian pyramid and the Eiffel Tower mix together in one glittering cohesive existence.   There are 4.2 miles of playful architecture on Las Vegas Boulevard known as” The Strip.”  Las Vegas is a place where dreams of wealth are nurtured by giant jackpots and big wins.

In the early 1990’s Casinos where trying to make Las Vegas family-friendly with themed hotel resorts and casinos.  Currently, more sophisticated resorts are replacing themed resorts with sleek high-rise buildings meant to cater to wealthy world travelers that have already seen the real pyramids, Eiffel Tower, or Canals of Venice.  There is a feeling that wealthy  world travelers won’t be amused by the imitations or replicas in Las Vegas, which is rather sad, because Vegas is supposed to be all about fun.  It lost a bit of it with the modern sleek dark glass buildings that are barely lit up at night.  The glittering lights seem to be slowly vanishing, although the buildings are still amazing.

MGM Grand Emerald Green like the City of Oz, was once the largest hotel in the world in 1993 http://www.luckylittletravelers.com
