I went to Sin City this past weekend with my roommate/partner. We left on Saturday morning and came back Monday night. There was a lot of changes since the last time I visited in 2008. The hotel I stayed at only exists in my memory, as it was torn down. Surprisingly, I didn’t remember much of my prior stay. This time we stayed at New York New York, but talk about the choices. You have casinos/hotels on the strip, close to the strip, downtown, and other places within the city limits. We walked four hours up and down the strip this time, and hardly made a dent with going into the casinos. I basically took pictures of the outside. The MGM Grand Buffet had more food choices than I was accustomed too. We went to Fremont and Main Street and saw the older casinos the next day. The reason most people make the drive through the desert or fly into the city is to drink and gamble, but I managed to do neither as it was more business than fun. I saw plenty of women dancing on tables, drunk people, and having a little too much fun. Here are my pictures on the drive to Vegas (need to do something to pass the time) and Vegas itself (need to take pictures so I can remember the trip).
