Casinos and Hotels
On the Strip
Vegas by night
Las Vegas, the largest oasis in the world
Created by Mormons in 1855, on the wasteland of the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas is now the largest city in Nevada and one of the largest cities of games and entertainment for adults. The city earned the title of Sin City, or The Entertainment Capital of the World.

Along the Strip, hotel-casinos most incredible succeed: El Flamingo, opened by gangster Bugsy in 1946, Caesar’s Palace, known for its boxing matches and concerts, but also New York-New York, Luxor, Excalibur, The Bellagio, famed for its elegance and fountains, The Mirage, Planet Hollywood, The Venetian, Treasure Island, Circus Circus, the Stratosphere. Every hotel is magic, has its show. As the Mirage, where Love (Cirque du Soleil) celebrates the musical legacy of The Beatles through their timeless recordings. People forget everything and dream another life...

There are always new luxury hotels under construction. The last born I’ve seen, are Wynn and Encore, combining both classroom and modern luxury, The Palazzo in Italian refinement. Going down the strip to downtown, we rediscover the hotel-casino The Sahara, cheap wedding white and pink, the charm of yesteryear but timeless.
