| A Unique Vision of Las Vegas Under a Vibrant Sun. Here is Sin City in All Its Exciting Whimsical Glory!
“For many, Las Vegas offers limitless fantasies of hitting the jackpot and hence, living that not too frequently attainable high life. To others, Vegas is a garish whirlpool of desperation, futility or vice. However, the endless cavalcade of visitors mixed with sparkling colors and flickering lights give it the magical aura of a carnival. Being neither gambler nor drinker, I see Vegas with its vast boulevard of curiosities as being one of the world’s most amusing theme parks.”- Ari Roussimoff
