The Strip at Night Around Caesars Palace
Probably the most famous corner in Las Vegas is Flamingo Road and Las Vegas Boulevard. Here are the legendary hotels. The Flamingo was the place that Bugsy built. Caesars Palace has anchored this spot since the mid sixties. The Bally's Hotel was once the original MGM Grand. On the corner between Flamingo Road and the Flamingo Hotel is the Barbary Coast Hotel and mostly casino. In the foreground on our masthead image above is the famous fountain lake of the Bellagio Hotel and of course Casino.

The photo on the right is of those fountains first made famous when Evel Knevel jumped them in the sixties. He made the jump but the landing was a bit rough.

The picture on the right was taken in March 2001. Caesars Palace is currently under going another renovation and expansion and this scene will change somewhat by Spring 2005.
These pictures were taken in October 2000 and they were both taken from the same spot but across Flamingo Road from each other. The top picture was taken from the pedestrian overpass at the Caesars Palace and looks north on Las Vegas Boulevard. The second photo looks across and down Las Vegas Boulevard toward the south end of the Strip.

This photo looks directly at Bally's pedestrian entrance on Las Vegas Boulevard. Just to the right is the Aladdin Hotel. Obscuring the Aladdin, is the Paris Hotel with its version of the Eiffel Tower.

Although these photos were taken in October 2000, not that much has changed, except as we always say, the names on the marquees.

This is about to change soon. The Aladdin Hotel is now owned by Planet Hollywood and they will put their trademark that hotel. Plans are for the front of the hotel to become more accessible to pedestrian traffic.
This has become part of the trend on the Las Vegas Strip to make even the sidewalks interesting and attractive. The Treasure Island pioneered this trend by putting its boardwalk sidewalks into the public domain.

Several other sidewalks have been enhanced this way. The walk from the Flamingo all the way to the Venetian Hotel is a good example of making the Strip more attractive and appealing to visitors.

Another feature which is notable are the fountain shows at the Bellagio. These water displays are synchronized to traditional, mostly Italian songs.

The shows are free and last for a few minutes and restart every few minutes. They run most of the evening when there is no wind.
