In the middle of the Strip is a little getaway called the Hawaiian Marketplace. It is a covered area where you can get out of the heat, listen to a little music, have a bite to eat, shop for any of about a million little curios and trinkets, and watch local artists at work.
The Hofbruhaus is a brewery in Munich, Germany. They've opened a branch office in Las Vegas which is not on the Strip, but is worth looking for.
It was a pretty quiet afternoon, but the band still played, and drank, up a storm.
Lee's Discount Liquor stores. Wow! I could live here. There were only a couple of off-the-wall refreshments that I have seen in other countries that I could not find here, but that may have been because I just could not figure out where they were. There are several stores and they are all the size of small grocery stores...there's just no food...only drink.
This ended up being some kind of movie screen? I haven't seen it yet since its completion. Someday.
New York, New York.
Starting and stopping inside the casino is a roller coaster that spends a lot of its run outside.
Different sections of the New York, New York casino mimic different sections of New York City. There is even a Central Park.
Times Square is in there.
