Las Vegas Wednesday

Sunrise on Wednesday looking out at the Palazzo and new construction at the Venetian Hotel.

Bill worked while Colleen and I did more touring of hotels...

First the Encore - a twin on the outside of the Wynn - these are very upscale, gorgeous hotels. The Encore just opened in December 2008. First pictures are the lobby/entrace of the Encore with a dragon and red/yellow flowers in preparation for the Chinese New Year. There were even inlaid floors.

I managed to get a photo of the casino although they discourage it - this one was SO pretty and so much less tacky than most casinos I just had to record it.  Below the shopping area with its beautiful chandeliers and incredible shops. 

We didn't buy anything....
Next the Palazzo where these lights moved up and down slowly making a beautiful constantly changing piece of art....

There were very interesting restaurants, gorgeous rest rooms and even another circular escalator.

We found a small coffee shop restaurant and could eat outside in an area that made it hard to believe we were in Las Vegas - except for the view just beyond the "nature" of hotels or a shopping center....what a contrast to a peaceful natural setting!

The lunch was pure comfort food....
with heat lamps so we could enjoy the outdoors in winter!!

I enjoyed this guy with his music, phone and computer all going....

Next we were at the Palazzo to see the Living Waters show and I believe the other photos are from there also.

We stayed at the somewhat less expensive Treasure Island

The sign at the Venetian for the Phantom show!
