I have been to Vegas many times. I have been to every casino and played almost every slot machine in Vegas. At least my pocket book feels like I have. I have been all over the strip walked from one end to the other and have seen lots of strange and wonderful things during my times visiting the strip.Walking up and down the strip you can see many things. There are people out there that are trying to make a buck you can tip them for a photo opp. This last trip out I was able to get my daughter and a man dressed up all in gold like a statue on video. It was pretty cool. We were also able to get some video of her holding a monitor lizard, thats all cool but its not what makes the Las Vegas Strip so wonderful.The Las Vegas Strip has so much to see. Its a virtual wonderland in the desert. As you walk up and down the strip you are surrounded by many other tourist that are out to have a good time. If you are a people watcher like me then this is the place to do it.I have seen some very weird things as I people watch on the strip. Men that are very much manly men that are dressed as women. You would think that these people would not want to be photoed but they do. You can actually tip them to have them pose with you. I have seen a man dressed as a cheerleader, a man dressed as Captian America, a man dressed all in gold he was painted gold. There was also a man with his monitor lizard that you can have your picture taken with. Now these people are not gonna get up in your face if you dont tip them but they will be much friendlier getting the pose right if you do tip.The strip is a great place to see the city as it husles and busles along. You can see the city as it works people going to and from work. You can see tourist as they make there way from one casino to another. You can see just about anything you can even see someone famous if your in the right spot at the right time. I love the strip and make it a must on our trips we enjoy walking up and then down the strip taking in all the sites that you miss when you are wizzing by in a car.
