Good for a short visit

I had been to Las Vegas often on business, starting in 1967 but especially in the 1970s. My stepfather had been a part owner of Caesar's Palace and regularly comped me (though I gambled little, if at all), once sending me and a dozen of my colleagues to dinner and a show. (The show was Milton Berle, who mostly pranced around as a caricature of either a woman or a gay. Dull.)

Five days over New Year's was my first visit since the late 1980s -- and my first visit ever for a leisure stay. No place I know has changed more, 1960s to 2010s. Not only the many theme hotels, but the large number of good -- even gourmet -- restaurants.
