The COVID 19 shutdown of Las Vegas has given people a once in a lifetime opportunity to see and experience The Las Vegas Strip without the traffic!! Social media has been eating up the photos and the videos of the people who have taken advantage of this chance of a lifetime.
Our photographer friend Tom Donoghue, was on assignment with Maverick Helicopters last week to do their version of the experience. From the air and in photographs. He has allowed me to post some of the photos he shot and put them in a video. Enjoy!
The Strip is Bright and Empty
We all seen the photos of the Las Vegas Strip and the bright lights. But when you look at these pictures, you see it clean. Raw. No people. It’s just the architecture and the lights. You are almost hypnotized by the lack of the people and the beauty of the lights.
Fremont Street Experience Unreal
Looking form above, you don’t notice the emptiness, just the bright lights from under the canopy. Giving that “unreal” look. As if this was a model at some travel show. We do know that the count down to opening has begun.
The New Stadium Glows
Our new domed stadium is even more impressive in the glow of the night lights. The Allegiant Stadium is on schedule to open up later this year. Garth Brooks concert will be the first event held there. Followed by Las Vegas Raiders preseason game than a University Las Vegas Rebels football game. They have a lot of events planned for the first couple of years besides football!
