Las Vegas is a heavily depicted city in film and media, but no amount of visual imagery or references and stories come close to experiencing Sin City live. My husband and I drove 5 hours from Los Angeles to Vegas through the Mojave Desert, and while the ride itself was interesting and my eyes never got bored of the view, I felt a rush as we approached the city. When I arrived during the day I did some shopping until the sun no longer pierced. Afterwards as we parked our car on The Strip and set out to walk, I was overwhelmed. I was suddenly thrown into a busy city. It doesn’t take long to understand that Las Vegas is one giant mesh. Sidewalks merged into pedestrian bridges. Pedestrian bridges tunneled to malls and souvenir shops. Shops molded to hotels which led to the casinos. I was in a never ending loop, what a rush!
The urban fabric of The Strip consists of designer shops in funky architecture settings, hotel designs from worldwide landmarks, and some of the most exclusive casinos.
Join me in my visual diary of Las Vegas, I hope you like it!
