    Renently Las Vegas has been in the largest building boom yet and the Frontier has been on the Strip for 50 years and just this morning it was imploded to make way for a repilca of the Plaza hotel in New York

    I'm amazed at the skill with which these demolition companies can fell a building with such precision.

    With the Wynn opening up (and expansion underway), Fontainebleau under construction, and now Stardust and Frontier gone to make room for Echelon Place and Las Vegas Plaza, the northern Strip is undergoing unbelievable changes.

    How long until the boom ends and Vegas turns into a ghost town.

    Eventually they will over build and put each other out of business. Plus the fact that indian casinos are growing all over the country.

    Vegas is vegas. It'll never go out of style. Only real competition place I can think of is atlantic city, and well its mostly for people who don't want to make the trip to Vegas. The uber ballers flock to Maccau and Monte Carlo but the large part will continue to flock to vegas.

    Thats the truth, right there. I don't think Indian casinos will take away enough customers to really hurt Vegas. Vegas is an experience, not just a place :D

    So true, even for my age, I've been to vegas at least five times and my GF and I are already planning the next five :)
    Since we are both 21 now, it's become exponentially more fun. :D

    Build on my brothers and sisters, build on.

    Yes, keep building and diverting more water from the Colorado River. That'll show them Mexicans. I dunno what, but it'll show them something!

    Except those are destinations almost solely for gambling, or for only a few days at most. Las Vegas (and Atlantic City) are places you can vacation for a few days, hit several casinos, check out non-casino type tourist traps and generally have a good time.

    I am going to Vegas for the first time this January, but I've been to AC, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun. As a mostly non-gambler, I've had a much better time in AC than I did at Foxwoods OR Mohegan; different type of casino environment.
