WELCOME TO LEAVING LAS VEGAS! Updated 8-10-11
Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada. Sin City. No matter what you call it, this city's synonymous with the ultimate in nightlife, gambling in the billions, amazing shows and productions, and extreme architecture and buildings. But before all the Cirque shows, before the ultra clubs and lounges, before the towering condos and high rises, before the congested traffic and massive high definition and LCD signs and screens, Las Vegas was a city of dreams and innovation, simple neon and classic glitz, mobsters and legends.
Reminders of this amazing and infamous past still dot the Las Vegas valley, some having thankfully been restored and reused, while others lay decaying and forgotten, soon to be only a memory in the minds of those who even care to remember. Help to preserve the memories and promote the preservation of these historic hotels, casinos, and architectural works of art; those sites and buildings that have contributed to the growth of this great city and given it such a wonderfully rich history.

Check back soon for an all new, updated, interactive blog/website for everything Vegas history! My inbox is flooded every day with questions about the actual website. I promise that in the following weeks a revamp and relaunch is coming. In the meantime, "like" us on Facebook for the latest updates, photos, and news! Thanks to all of our loyal fans over the years. Your support and friendship is amazing. In the meantime, check out the old links on this page to see where this all started, with the demolition blogs of the Stardust and Frontier, the pages documenting the passing of places such as the Moulin Rouge and El Morocco, or just read our gueetbook to see what people have been saying over the years. It's quite interesting... See you soon!
In loving memory.
