Back To The Future

One of the few side trips I took on my visit last month was all the way north on the Strip to the Peppermill restaurant. I had always wanted to check it out and finally did. This entry isn’t about the Peppermill, but about all the construction underway in that part of the city. Once completed, there should be a continuous run of casinos from Circus Circus down to the Fashion Show Mall and beyond. Resorts World is going to span much of that distance but the site of what will (eventually) be the Wynn West development pretty much fills in the rest of it. Past Circus Circus to the north is still pretty empty other than the Hilton Time Share but, across the street, there will be the expanded convention center and the Drew. That certainly puts the SLS (or whatever it becomes) closer to the action, even with the vacant lot that was Wet n Wild. Still, after navigating all the way past Venetian/Palazzo and Wynn/Encore, it should be noted that simply having something along the north Strip doesn’t make it all that walkable. Unlike the resorts center Strip, they are going to be separated by a lot of distance. We’ll have to wait and see how good a job the new resorts do making that space interesting.
