Signs of Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV is a city of lights and glitter. There are many casinos from the strip, to downtown, to the off-the-strip casinos geared more to locals. With these casinos comes signs, advertising to the tourist and gamblers to come in and play. There have been many signs in Las Vegas, they come and go. There's even a sign grave yard, north of Downtown, where old signs go to rest. The new signs now have lcd screens flashing videos to people on the streets, basically a TV commercial, but there are some that still have that Classic Vegas look. I have taken as many photos of these Vegas signs as I could, before they go to the grave yard, or worse, destroyed.
 The Glass pool inn has been closed for a while, but the sign and building was standing until the property was sold. Like many properties on the Strip they are very valuable and when someone with a lot of money comes in and offers these property owners a lucrative deal, they usually take it.

The MGM sign is an example of the modern signs of Las Vegas. It's enormous size clearly states this is a Grand Casino/hotel including the LCD TV screen that can be seen all the way down the strip.

This is part of a series of posts on Las Vegas signs. I have to many pictures for one post. Stay tuned for more. If you have your own classic Las Vegas signs photos, leave them in the comments below.
