I’m Back in Las Vegas with The Girl to visit Mom and decided to show her the new and improved Tropicana Las Vegas. There was a pretty long stretch of time where The Trop was falling just a liiiiiittle bit into disrepair. Maybe “disrepair” is too strong of a description but it surely wasn’t what it used to be and what it is now. The improvements to the Tropicana hotel and casino have been impressive and well worth checking out. It’s still on it’s own corner, of course, providing a change of pace if you’re used to hanging out more in what we refer to as “the middle of the strip”. A quick jaunt across the pedestrian walkway/overpass brings you to the Excalibur tram which can take you to Luxor and to Mandalay Bay at “the end of the strip”. This is just one of many nice views of the hotel property, from the hotel property, and a fair representation of the Hotel and Casino’s feel.
Check back in to the Vegas section for updates and views of the ever-changing landscape. -j
