Las Vegas Vacation Photo Tour

Las Vegas Strip vacation

LV growth is not stopping

Signs of construction are everywhere on the Las Vegas Strip, in the hotels and throughout the city.

There is the new development of Wynn, Trump's new hotel, additions to Caesar's Forum, the Bellagio and more remodeling inside the older hotels.

Enjoy a selection of photos taken in 2004 of the Las Vegas Strip and hotels.

(Next two photos) In the place of the Old Sahara Hotel (photo lower right), a new construction development. Across the street (photo below) is the new Wynn Hotel.

A new Walgreens is being built on the Sahara property (lower right hand corner of photo).

The new Trump Hotel and remodeled casino-hotels along The Strip are a sign of new energy and a change of marketing.

Las Vegas Strip walkway
It's much easier to cross the busy Strip without having to wait for the lights to change or dart between angry taxi drivers blaring horns.

Walkways, escaltors and elevators move the foot traffic faster across and down the Strip.

A technical problem shut down the new Las Vegas Monorail during my visit. Once repaired, that should help move people faster up and down The Strip. A connection to Downtown will join both entertainment areas into one.

While the monorail is out- everyone has to hoof it during this visit to Las Vegas. But the exercise walking between hotels wasthe most exhuasting.

Escalators and elevators help push foot and wheelchair access up and down the street at a faster pace.

Escalators span across intersections, between hotel casinos, and in the hotels themselves.
