Las Vegas series #5 pictures were shot December 24 - 25 - 26, 2006 along the Las Vegas strip (Las Vegas Blvd.) with a 6 megapixel Olympus SP500-UZ. We stayed at the Luxor for this trip so a large number of photos were taken in the south strip area.

We like going to Las Vegas after the National Finals Rodeo is over (usually around December 12) because that seems to be the least crowded time of year. We thought Christmas eve and Christmas day would be very quiet on the strip but that wasn't the case at all. Those two days were more crowded than any other time we've been to Las Vegas. So, if you like to avoid crowds, visit Las Vegas after the National Finals Rodeo but before the Christmas holiday.

This series of photos includes several daytime and night shots of the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada" sign at the south end of the strip, plus final looks at the New Frontier and Stardust (Stardust was imploded in March 2007 and New Frontier closed for business July 2007.) We were walking past the Bellagio and Caesars Palace at sunset on Christmas day and captured nice images of both properties at sunset. Click here to view the Las Vegas Photos #5 thumbnail gallery.
