Stroll through new City Center Las Vegas

Sunday a.m.

Back to yesterday. Always enjoy our time walking around the Bellagio – it is still the most impressive of the hotels on The Strip. The glass flower ceiling over the lobby, the gorgeous mosaic floors and of course the Conservatory. Yesterdays pictures were mostly of the Conservatory all decked out for Thanksgiving. Sorry about the video clip being sideways – I’ve got to remember not to hold the camera sideways while taking movies – I have not been able to find a way to rotate them to the right way. Somehow there has got to be a way. 
Clicking on the pics will make them larger and the videos take a little time to load - be patient.
From the Bellagio we took the tram to the new City Center section.

From Tram Window
 Got off at Crystals/Aria (? The names of Hotels? Stores? Shopping? All of the above?) Some pretty hanging decorations.

Decorations in Crystals

Close Up - See colors in silver ones
Lots of restaurants and stores. And more people than I thought would be there – though this is a holiday weekend. Walked through to an exit door and got a look at some of the other buildings. Nice view.

Through another door into another shopping section – this one decorated a little different.

Out another door into a parking/valet area. This area has a huge long wall of water falling that changed volume. Very pretty.
Water Fall around Valet area
Hope this works - short video of the falling water  near the end you can see the volume increase.
Another view of some of the buildings. The color in the middle of the bottom of the picture is a fountain.

Another picture of it. Very pretty to watch – does all kinds of wiggles.

Just another sculpture in another building.
There were three of these in different sizes
The Driver taking pictures of some tourists.

I love these buildings – yes they look like they are tilting.
Tilting Buildings
Another shot of the buildings. Remember this was all built in less than three years!

Loved this sculpture – it is of an old fashioned pink round wheel shaped eraser. They used to erase more paper than ink/pencil.
should get the job done
Reflections in window of Chihuly Exhibit.

Chilhuly piece – Yellow Iciciles

About 10 feet tall
Back into another building where we saw these pretty trees with the moving lights.

Picked up the car and back out onto Las Vegas Blvd. My favorite the M & M Experience

The CocaCola bottle

And this is something I’ve never seen in Vegas before – just got a couple of pictures.

Kind of like being on Hollywood Blvd in Hollywood, CA
Today the wind has really picked up again - will keep the wind chill up....still warmer in Indiana than here. The Driver is getting more and more impatient to get on the beach in Mexico.
Just noticed in the little magazine the RV park gives us that there is a maid service for RVs - BRING THEM ON. Wonder if they do much business.
