Happily I've never been to Las Vegas. But then I've never had any need for gambling. A good show maybe.
This particular rendition of Sin City was given just this Christmas as a Gift to the Fair Lady by her brother who had the opportunity to visit Las Vegas sometime in 2012.
So it only seems fitting that this gift becomes the first of many Snow-Globes to grace Fair Lady Tower in the New Year.
Aside from the replica of the Statue of Liberty, some of the more famous Vegas landmarks also in the Snowglobe include the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino; standing behind the Paris Globe (Interesting that the Eiffel Tower is missing), and; the MGM Lion that stands watch outside the MGM Grand Hotel.
Try as I might, I unfortunately cannot identify the wedding chapel on the left of the Snowglobe. Behind the Snowglove we see a hint of the Luxor Pyramid peeking from behind the Stratosphere Hotel which has an out of place Cowboy Vic standing at its base. To the left stand the replicas of the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building from the New York, New York Hotel and Casino.
Around the base are wonderful icons commonly associated with Las Vegas including a Royal Flush above the 777 mark of the Palms Casino, dice. chips and of course, the famous/infamous Las Vegas Sign:
As it's a gift, I have no idea how much it costs. The Las Vegas Snowglobe stands 4.25 inches tall and 3 inches wide at the base.
Here is the Las Vegas Snowglobe all shaken and glittered up:
