Visiting our son, Justin and his wife, Lauren in Las Vegas
July 21, 2013
We are learning that there's more to Las Vegas than blackjack dealers and strippers. With our son, Justin and his wife, Lauren, we are seeing a city that's multilayered with neighborhoods and activities.
The two of them moved to this southwest city to be part of the redevelopment of the downtown which is separate from the Strip. New life is being breathed into what had been a rundown area.
Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos, is leading the change with a vision that's giving new life to an area that was on the verge of being given last rights. It's coming back to live.
Our Las Vegas kids have gotten us a birds-eye view of what's taking place with a special tour. We have eaten at some of their favorite restaurants. We toured the Fremont area which includes some of the older casinos like Binions and the Golden Nugget. Then there was the Hoover Dam and today, the Red Rock Canyon.
I just wanted to post a few pictures for friends so they can see our son and his wife and get a visual of the next chapter in their lives. I will post more.
