Las Vegas was a technical stop for us, nothing else.
On the road from Death Valley to Bryce Canyon it is a logical stop. Furthermore from Vegas tours to the Grand Canyon can easily be organised, which was in fact our goal.
We decided to share with you the few pictures we have as they illustrate so well how crazy the whole thing is.
Casinos are everywhere and they are huge. Most of them are hotels-casinos. To reach the reception lobby you need first to find your way through a maze filled with slot machines.
One simply get lost in the whole thing, even the exit is difficult to find.

Most of the casinos have a theme like Rome for 'Cesar's Palace' or Venice for 'The Venetian'. So if you didn't get to visit the real Rome yet you have a chance to see the Trevi Fountain or for Venice the Piazza St Marco!
It is however at night that Las Vegas gets its true colours with a myriad of neon advertising.
