It may have taken a bit longer than planned, but in December the beginning of a new Las Vegas world emerged with the grand opening of the ARIA Resort and Casino in City Center.

Promoted as a city within a city this mega developement had everything…hotels, restaurants, shopping…and all on a big scale taking in over 67 acres just off the strip.

I have watch this developement from the beginning…from the early announcements, to the economic uncertainties over the past couple of years…to the new promise it now brings.

I will stay at the ARIA this weekend. Hopefully I will take in the new Viva Elvis show. And I will report on it all while there and when I return.

Listen to my travel show this Sunday at noon CST on if you are not from Manitoba. I well do my first report and in a couple of weeks I will talk with some of the people involved on the air.

Hopefully, I will return with some unique pictures to post as well.
