I was in Vegas last October, and I must say, nothing much has changed along the main strip. Some of the shows that were playing on the first visit were still drawing crowds nearly a year later.
There are still the folks dressed in various stages of clothing and costumes walking the streets, street musicians, and others handing out leaflets for special "adult" shows.
Our Vegas guide took us to the Bellagio and Venetian hotels to check out the lavish surroundings to lure guests, especially those who are high rollers.

The Bellagio has the world's largest chocolate fountain while the Venetian has a canal with several gondolas winding through an expensive shopping mall.
|The Fremont Street Experience|
|The Viva Vision Light Show|
One of the attractions is the Viva Vision Light Show that fills the roof six times a night. We were entertained by eight pounding minutes of music by Heart synchronized to the throbbing, dazzling lights.
There are three sound stages with some outstanding musicians performing different genres. You'll also find a ziplines stretching across the top of the facility.
This will probably be my last trip to Vegas (I said that last year), but I think it's a city most people should experience at least one time for its sheer razzle dazzle to the senses.
Until the next time...
(Note: the chocolate machine and light show images should be vertical but blog site won't allow me to rotate them).
