RiverCat Journal: Signs of Old

Posted by on July 24, 2012

Current Venue:  Las Vegas, NV
Campground: Riviera RV Park

One thing I gotta’ say about my location is that I’m at a terrific junction with  “straight shots” to pretty much everywhere.  If I take a left on Sahara, plenty of shopping.   If I take a right on Sahara, it takes me directly to The Strip.  I can take St.Louis directly to The Stratosphere (a really fun ride at night as the Vegas icon looms larger and larger).If I take a left on Boulder Highway, I have access to the big “locals” casinos.  If I take a right on Boulder, it becomes Fremont Street and takes me straight into Downtown Vegas.

Downtown, of course, is the original “Strip” before all the mega casino/resorts moved to Las Vegas Boulevard.  Therefore, these are some of the original “off-strip” hotels.  Granted, these days they are certainly not places you’d have a family vacation, but you can’t help but  love these old signs…

Of course some folks prefer the comforts of a full-blown resort like The Golden Nugget.  It’s home, of course, to the largest gold nugget in the world and perhaps the only waterslide that goes through a shark tank.
