There is no place like Vegas!
I think I've been around a lot now, and Vegas is the NY Times Square on steroids.
Coming in last night, and just driving down the strip, we must have passed at least 20,000 people, and we just drove a few blocks.
Some business have died, but most are BOOMING! Vegas has grown tremendously in the last 6 months.
I don't understand the stock market.
Why would stock prices in Las Vegas casinos fall. All the parking lots are full. Its more crowded than New York City.
THEY ARE MAKING A KILLING HERE! And its all for partying and having fun.
It seems to me, if a business is obviously turning hugh profits and are expanding, their stock prices shouldn't fall. It makes no sense to me, at all.
I heard Boyd Properties (whose stock fell from $40 to $4 a share) is buying the Station Casino's.
That would make it one of the 5 largest casino corporations in town.
And The Cannery East, that casino that's about 5 blocks away from our house, is BEAUTIFUL.
They did a great job on it.
We are now next to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign on Boulder Highway.
