Time to do the Strip from end to end. What a sight! Let’s start with our casino – Excalibur. Smelly and over deodorised but very cute from the outside.
New York New York
Then there is New York New York. Despite having just seen the real thing, there was a slight kick in seeing the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and Chrysler Building again. It also houses the California Pizza Kitchen which serves up a great dinner.
Coca Cola World
The Harley Davidson
Hard Rock Cafe
We then came across Flamingos. Very run down and retro. Home to Olivia Newton John and Donnie and Marie Osmond concerts. Also home to some very beautiful real pink flamingos. See future posts for photos.
The most spectacular of all was the Venetian with a whole indoor Venice. The ceiling was painted with clouds and was quite realistic. The canals are definitely filled with water and gondolas. Inside and out.
Old town Vegas
Tonight we headed off to the heavily recommended Old Town Vegas. Very, very, very tacky. The centrepieces are the Golden Nugget, the biggest LED TV screen (on the roof) and a zip line that runs under it. We caught a cab there and did a brief and tacky tour of the street, then we caught a cab home.
We put a dollar into the largest slot machine… and got nothing back…
28 000 steps.
