The Las Vegas Sign
There is only around four hours separating Kanab and the bustling city of Las Vegas, and considering how large America is, four hours is nothing. Entering Vegas again I didn’t get the same feeling as when I first arrived, mainly because I had got used to small towns and isolated places and was quite sad to end up back in ‘Sin City’ and as soon as we pulled up, a couple about to get married reminded me about the craziness that is around. Finally being able to go see the Welcome to Las Vegas sign made it abundantly clear that if you’ve seen it once, you don’t have to see it again, popular culture makes it seem fun and exciting, when in reality you are waiting in a line to take a picture, getting back in your car and leaving.
In the evening, we walked The Strip for the final time and again saw many people gambling and drinking. However families were walking around and taking pictures with all the characters on the street, proving that all types of people are welcome in Las Vegas. We ended our night at the Bellagio again to see the fountains for the last time, which was emotional. Las Vegas allows us to see the sleazy, the luxury and the importance of entertainment which keeps this city alive and keeps tourists wanting to come here.
