While making my tourist rounds on my last night in Las Vegas I took the picture above. It was taken from a pedestrian walkway that leads to Bally’s. Each over the street walkway in Vegas is setup a bit differently. None of them have any type of air conditioning. In contrast Des Moines, IA has enclosed walkways all over downtown that include heating and cooling. You would think with all the money in Vegas that the suits would realize keeping guest comfortable is a good idea. The walkway I took this picture from had glass partitions on the sides. These created a reflection when taking a picture.
In the picture you see the Flamingo Hotel & Casino as well as Bill’s Gamblin Hall & Saloon, Bally’s, Planet Hollywood and of course Paris. You can see the Paris Las Vegas replica of the Eiffel Tower in the photo. Along with several other Las Vegas landmarks. Harrah’s Entertainment is the current owner of the Flamingo. This property is located on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. The Flamingo Hotel & Casino is a well known Vegas location because of it’s colorful past and beginnings.
