If there’s a more lively place at nighttime than Las Vegas, we just haven’t been there (although Shanghai’s Bund comes close)! ¬†It’s¬†“lights on” everywhere¬†— from the dancing¬†Bellagio fountains to the uplighted Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas to the brown turned gold Wynn facade.

Something new (at least to me) at LAS!

On my fifth trip this year to Vegas’s McCarran, I saw something I hadn’t¬†seen before.¬† Not at McCarran.¬† Or any other airport, for that matter.¬† But it’s probably been there all along.¬† I¬†may have been¬†too busy watching luggage spin around on those carousels to even notice.
