January 30, 2015 Las Vegas, Nevada, Part 1

We left Boulder City and headed to Las Vegas.  Bill had been there several times but this was my first time.  Neither one of us are gamblers, so we knew our time in Vegas would center on sightseeing in and around Vegas and perhaps taking in a show.

We stayed at a campground about 15 minutes from the strip making the drive wherever we wanted to go very convenient.

One day we headed to the downtown area which was the original gambling strip and still the location of many casinos.  We stopped at the famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, one of the most photographed signs on Earth.  We had a free audio tour of the Las Vegas area so we played that as we drove.16424644035_17a986b659_o

After dark we concentrated most of our time in the Fremont Street area where we saw a sound and light show featuring 12.5 million lights.  There are many interesting sites to see downtown!IMG_20150202_231247

One of Bill’s favorite things he did while in Vegas was going to the Gun Garage and shooting some automatic weapons.  He shot an MP5-9mm, M4-9mm, UZI-9mm and an AK-47.  He even has a bruised shoulder for his efforts.  His target showed what a great shooter he is!  I was content to stand to the side and be the photographer!
