The Strip at Night

Welcome to Las Vegas

Welcome to Las Vegas

I am back for the 4th time and my impression of Las Vegas remain the same. Below is the my description of Las Vegas in an old post.

When you are about to exit the Las Vegas airport, a huge banner is flashed across the exit door which says “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas!”

I have been to Las Vegas a number of times. Three times to be exact. The first time was with a girlfriend, the second time was with my family (with a child) and the last time was with my husband (without a child). Things never change apart from the tremendously increasing number of casinos that are getting brighter, bigger and better and the increasing amount of carbon footprint due to electric bills. The nightlife with or without the kids is on steroids and by far unbeatable by any nightlife you would have ever experienced in your life. Ever! The unbelievable diversity of entertainments (legal or not legal, for adults or for kids) is endless. The city is insomniac and if it’s a person, it will be  psychologically diagnosed as schizophrenic with ADHD.

You can do pretty much anything 24/7 but Las Vegas must be seen at night to appreciate the extra ordinary neon-flashing city with its oversized billboards that is uniquely incomparable to anything that you have seen before. The city is incredibly bright that I’m sure it can be seen from the furthest planet or from the moon. The city is overly crowded with every man and his dog including his wife, ex-wives and grandmother from low-life gawkers to filthy rich individuals both eager to make their Vegas experience worthwhile just staying in Vegas. And anyone who wasn’t there at the time need not know about it.”

I went running in the morning and it is certainly a different world.

  1. Just visited Vegas for the second time…totally agree that you really need to see it at night to appreciate it. I was really surprised how busy the strip is during the day with pedestrian traffic. I don’t remember it being that way last time I visited, but that was summer so maybe too hot for people to venture beyond the air conditioned casino walls!
