Pink Motels

Vegas is dotted with seedy motels. All of the above -the Happi Inn, Fun City, Tod Motel are on L.V. Boulevard. As long as you have the money, no questions asked. Some people pass through, others end up staying for years.

Retired In America

You can retire very comfortably, adequately or not so well. You can retire in Boulder City or downtown Vegas. Best to avoid retirement all together.

The Old El Cortez Is New Again

Sometimes they don't blow up old buildings in Vegas, but renovate them. Also, old neon signs are being pulled from the neon graveyard and installed on Fremont St - makes it quite wonderful.
