When we went to Las Vegas, Nevada, we went directly from the airport to our hotel.
- My husband and I were exhausted from the eight hours of being cooped up in an airplane.
I wanted to get a shower, and he was ready for a nap. On our way from the airport to the hotel, the driver of the airport transport van was showing us items of interest on our hotel block. One thing that was cool was that we could see the large Ferris wheel that was part of one of the hotel casinos. Our hotel was less than three blocks from the main casino strip. As we continued our slow trip down the Boulevard, our driver also pointed out the many cannabis dispensaries located on the block. He stated that ever since the legalization of recreational marijuana, this area had become a hub of activity. I was amazed at how many cannabis dispensaries could be put on one block. Each had a different name and I would’ve never realized they were cannabis dispensaries if someone had not told me. Along with all the glitz and glamor of Las Vegas, NE, was a seedier side I didn’t know existed. I looked around where we were going, a part of me wondering if we were in a safe part of town. The driver assured us that we were staying in a hotel that was known for its safety measures and opulence. Aside from the marijuana dispensary and occasional homeless person, I found the deserts and nightlife to be more fun than I imagined.
