"Trojan Horse, Eiffel Tower & other Strange Sights" Las Vegas by shrimp56

Las Vegas Travel Guide: 8,553 reviews and 17,704 photos

Las Vegas fascinates me as a place that is a "real fake" or a "fake real." Don't miss the Wedding Chapel travelogue ;)

Just back from a 4 night stay with my husband -- his first visit. We stayed at The Luxor [his choice, not mine] and ate at Mesa Grill and Bouchon. Report to follow:)

In Memoriam

TOO LATE -- Desert Passage is now history ...
Aladdin has been sold to Planet Hollywood and the Desert Passage Shops have been sold to someone else. When I mentioned to a salesperson that I would miss the atmosphere, she said that they wouldn't because there was "no energy in here."

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great food & shopping -- superb people-watching!!
  • Cons:The culture of gambling -- and the heat :(((
  • In a nutshell:If you keep your perspective it's a fascinating place ..

    Nice tips, it looks like the Venetian is a must. It is nice to see someone who isn't afraid to say the Ceasar's Palace is over blown---very helpful, think we will skip that one.

    Looks like you really enjoyed my home town. You can find just about anything you want there. Enjoy life and all that it has to offer.

    Your photos and commentary are great. Time to start planning another trip with my son who turns 21 next year. He was 14 when he was in LV before.
