Las Vegas Strip, Simply Amazing

Looking for some fun? Las Vegas Strip is one of the best place to go. I was truly amazed by the so-called entertainment capital of the world. I was there and that was a great experience. Walking alone in the strip, watching the different colors of lights, different shows, beautiful buildings, amazing hotels, great shopping, restaurants, what else are you looking for! I am just happy to share a photo taken at Las Vegas Strip..from this photo, you will see in the background the Caesars Palace. On the right one is the Colosseum where we watched Elton John’s Red Piano Concert. That was great!
The Las Vegas Strip is an approximately 4 mile (6.4 km) stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard South in Clark County, Nevada, United States. A small portion of The Strip lies in Las Vegas, but most of it is in the unincorporated areas of Paradise and Winchester. Most of “The Strip” has been designated an All-American Road.

Many of the largest hotel, casino and resort properties in the world are located on the world famous Las Vegas Strip. Eighteen of the world’s twenty five largest hotels by room count are on the Strip, with a total of over 67,000 rooms.

Several decades ago, Las Vegas Boulevard South was called Arrowhead Highway, or Los Angeles Highway. The Strip was reportedly named by Los Angeles police officer Guy McAfee, after his hometown’s Sunset Strip.

One of the most visible aspects of Las Vegas’ cityscape is its use of dramatic themes. The theming of hotels, casinos, and restaurants on the Strip has established the city as one of the most popular destinations for tourists. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Las_Vegas_Strip
