January 2017 - Las Vegas NV
We walked some of the Strip last week. This week we'll cover a few more casinos and sights.
This time we'll head south on the Strip.
We'll start at Harrah's and cross Las Vegas Blvd, where we stopped last week.
There are mobile billboards everywhere.
We'll cross over to Wynn.
