Vegas Craps Out Again... Sahara Hotel to Close

[the sahara hotel, scheduled to close may 15, 2011... from the las vegas sun]

I am frequently asked by friends and acquaintances how it is in Las Vegas and if things are improving.

Here's a couple of items that should help with that answer.

First up is an article that tells the story of our housing market. Almost 70% of all homes with mortgages in the Las Vegas Valley are under water.

And then, the Sahara Hotel and Casino, a longtime anchor at the north end of the Las Vegas Strip, will be closing its doors in May.

Grim news. I didn't realize it was that bad there.

Hey Dave I have been toying with the idea of looking for a cheap condo in Reno. What is that area like? My primary interest would be for skiing the Lk. Tahoe area.

 

Blogger Dave Miller said ... (4:19 PM) : 

Tahoe is beautiful... the lake is spectacular and you are only a couple of hours from San Francisco.

You'll like the area... very low key but I hear it has great skiing...

About 5&1/2 hours from Vegas...

Used to be a neat little place. Back in the sixties, we passed through and stopped by one of the bars in one of the casinos.
About six folks sitting around having drinks and a
group came on and did some numbers. 'Up up and away in my big balloon"...which
a few years later I recognized as the Fifth Dimension. Of course these days you can gamble away nearly anywhere, but LV is
still the place for talent!
