New York – New York Hotel
The New York-New York Hotel in Las Vegas is located just across the street from the MGM Grand Hotel and the Excalibur Hotel. The hotel, which looks spectacular, is designed to resemble the New York skyline with the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge to complement it. There is also a giant roller coaster that goes in and around the hotel.
Palace of Caesar and the Colosseum
The Caesar & # 39; s Palace is one of the most popular resorts in Las Vegas as it continues to grow. Right now, Caesar's Palace is a huge complex in the center of the strip and it comes with all the entertainment options possible. Most people associate the hotel closely with the shows performed in its huge concert hall called "The Colosseum".
Popular celebrities (such as Céline Dione and Elton John) entertain guests for an extended period of time and shows are usually sold out well before show time. Thus, tourists who plan to attend a show in this place will need to check in advance for dates and availability of tickets.
The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, also called Mob Museum of Nevada, is a museum that stands out for its uniqueness. It is located inside a neoclassical building from 1933, which was once the American post office and the courthouse which has its own history. It was one of the places where the famous Kefauver Committee hearings of 1950 took place, revealing some ugly realities regarding organized crime in Vegas and the United States.
The museum tells the story of the American crowd through attractive video clips and interactive displays. Exhibitions have something to do with people, events, culture and fashion that are relevant over time.
