    Favorite thing: Like other neat features you will see in Vegas. I like to know more about them. The beautiful sculptures they have that are the centerpiece of the lobby in the Palazzo you cannot miss. What is so neat about these sculptures is they started to decorate them according to the holidays or seasons. Very beautiful.

    I found this information online. Very interesting to know that a company called Reynolds Polymer did the sculptures.

    In 2007, the fountain sculptures at the Palazzo Las Vegas Resort, Hotel, & Casino was truly a first for us. We started with a large, solid block of acrylic and very slowly and carefully carved out the statues from this block. The result was stunning: 3 sculptures in frosted acrylic of women in various poses standing 12 feet tall (3.7m). The sculptures were then transported to the Palazzo where they were mounted to a 14 foot tall (4.3m) acrylic column that was 32 inches in diameter (81.3cm). The rest of the water feature was then assembled along with the customized lighting for the display.www.reynoldspolymer.com/Portfolio/Architecture/Palazzo-Statues.html

    Neon Signs By Night part 4

    Favorite thing: this is the final neon sign tip of the four part neon sign tips with more pictures of the assorted neon signs, both outside and inside the casinos since VT only allows up to 5 pictures per tip.

    like what I've said in my neon sign by day tips, I think that las vegas has the largest number of assorted neon signs of all shapes and sizes that entice you to check out the various establishments that they are presentingand even to gamble or eat or dine or drink and more. there are many neon signs in las vegas per square mile than in the rest of the county and vegas is followed closely by Macau in the number of neon signs. Go ahead and gawk and take pictures and videos of the assorted neon signs that accompany the various vegas strip and off the strip attractions as they are free!

    Favorite thing: Las Vegas is truly a power hungry city. where else can you see lots and lots of neon signs splattered and always on 24/7 on a per square mile basis in the United States than in Vegas! There is a dizzying arraw of neon signs and billboard illuminated everyday and night that power costs of the establishments in vegas are staggering! they compensate for the expensive power costs via the gaming tables and slot machines and the really expensive entertainment offered in the various locales in the strip and downtown and off the strip areas. feel free to see the assorted neon signs both inside and outside the establishment since they are free to look at and take pictures and videos.

    Fondest memory: the always on assorted neon signs 24/7

    MUST SEE VEGAS BY NIGHT.

    by monner01 Written May 22, 2005

    Favorite thing: Las Vegas by night in a helicopter flying down the strip. Absoulutely awesome. It is truly breath taking as you fly past the Luxor and Mandalay Bay seeing how huge the MGM is and New York New York, oh yeah and in between them is Excalibur, I don't rate that one really, but if you time your flight correct you see the fountains at The Bellagio. You turn at The Stratosphere , then realise how truly huge it is then it's back up the strip over Ceasars Palace and back to the helipad. Fantastic. My wife and I have been to Las Vegas twice and each time have ben on this night flight.

    Fondest memory: My best memory of Las Vegas isn't really Las Vegas itself but it is two things that I did while there and they were flying by helicopter to The Grand Canyon. Now that is AWE INSPIRING. So huge and wonderful. Fabulous. Then there's my skydive in the desert. Truly crapped myself but was so exhilerating that I would love to do another one. AWESOME DUDE.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Spooky

    Favorite thing: The only night picture that didn't come out all blurry/trippy looking. This was taken (of course) in front of New York, New York. We wandered in front of the Statue of Liberty on our way back to our hotel (MGM Grand).

    Fondest memory: Right after I took this picture we encountered this really drunk guy. Shortly after us saying, "Hello" he threw up ... barely missing our shoes. Lucky (for you reading this) my picture of that incident didn't turn out. ;)

    The old Riviera at the northish end of the Strip

    Favorite thing: One of my favorite things is just to walk up and down the strip at night admiring the beautiful (if gaudy) neon art created by the signs of all the big casinos.
    Sometimes I even enjoy the older casinos more than the new ones, as impressive as they are.

    Fondest memory: One night I stopped outside the Stardust and sat down to rest and became mesmerized by the water fountains that were basically spitting streams of water into each other, colored bright red, blue and green by lights.
    At one point a family with several children, also fascinated by the flying water, joined me.
    It was a pleasant and unexpected interlude, the kind that stands out in memory for no special reason .

    Apparel and neon lights

    by TempNomad Updated May 30, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Love those lights!

    Favorite thing: Make sure to match your clothing to the surrounding landscape. It heightens photo opportunities.

    Fondest memory: I'm definitely more of a nature buff, but just as I fell in love with NYC - Las Vegas was excellent in its own way.

    Getting Ready is Half the Fun!

    by RudyVEGAS Written Mar 11, 2003
    Looking South from the Air

    Favorite thing: A trip to Vegas is a lot like fishing. I often have as much fun laying out all of my gear and making little adjustments to my boat as I actually do on the water. Getting ready for a trip to Vegas is also loads of fun!

    If you have never been to Sin City, check out the King of all Vegas bargain websites, "Las Vegas on 25 Cents a Day". http://bigempire.com/vegas

    Matt and Stinky lay out the best places to get free and cheap rooms, food, gambling opportunities, and little crappy trinkets.

    Every hotel worth staying in is outlined and reviewed in their sister site. El Cheapo Vegas
    http://cheapovegas.com

    Fondest memory: Seeing Las Vegas for the first from the air at night is something I will never forget. If you're up for a little adventure and something really unique, try a Neon Nights Helicopter Tour. Maverick and Heli-USA are a couple of good companies operating out of McCarran Airport. They are easy to find on the web and offer discounts for booking online.

    Stay away from the Strip located tours, people have told me they aren't nearly as good.

    Fireworks

    Favorite thing: Celebrations in Las Vegas are insane. Ringing in 2003 the city welcomed over 350,000 guests to help celebrate New Year's Eve. This picture was taken while leaving my lens open to catch the streams from the fireworks.

    by tim123 Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: 'The blocks around the intersection of Fremont and Main Streets in downtown Las Vegas are known as Glitter Gulch. The first neon sign in the city went up here in 1929; now millions of lightbulbs and miles of neon tubing bathe the Gulch in perpetual daylight. This is where you'll find Vegas Vic and his pal Sassy Sal - two of the best-known neon icons in the country. Some of the city's most famous casinos are in the Gulch, including the Golden Nugget and the Gold Spike, as are most of its strip clubs. Aside from slowly cruising down Fremont Street and basking in the multicolored glow, there's little to do apart from gamble, drink or watch naked people slither around poles. Shopping consists mainly of souvenirs.'
