Daytime Views of The Las Vegas Strip

Confession time: I’m trying to get last year’s Labor Day Weekend-related posts out before Roan and I go on a new adventure for my birthday weekend. You can tell that I’ve been slacking off in the blogging department, and only got around to working on some posts when I realized how much back[b]logs I’ve accumulated in a span of one year. I still have a handful of drafts from our trip to Nevada, so keep your eyes peeled in the next few days for those.

It is without doubt that The Las Vegas Strip portrays a buzzing, exciting, and visually stimulating image at night. After all, it wouldn’t earn the title “Sin City” if it didn’t hold up to this standard. Its wild and exotic charm is exactly what drives party-goers into the city, but I’ll be the first to admit that I find The Strip equally interesting during the day, too.

On our penultimate day in the city, Roan and I drove past the boulevard, and noticed a lot of details that we wouldn’t have recognized at night. The Strip during the day is just as busy as it is after dark, but I wouldn’t consider it as much crazy. There’s a perceivable amount of people walking on the streets and on foot bridges, and we associate it to both tourists and working people. You’ll be surprised how entertaining it was to watch them from a stopped vehicle, really.

Motel sightings along The Las Vegas Strip

I am mostly fascinated by the wedding chapels along The Strip, and they took me back to news of Britney Spears’ and Kevin Federline’s 55-hour marriage. Roan, on the other hand, flipped out when we passed by the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop (best known in the show Pawn Stars), I almost failed to take a photo of its sign! I wouldn’t say we’re huge fans of the show, but Chumlee makes the show much more entertaining.

If clubbing, partying, or gambling at the casinos isn’t your thing, then driving along The Strip is a fun and inexpensive way to appreciate Las Vegas, too. Actually, no, there’s so much more than what we all perceive Las Vegas to be. It does feel a little overwhelming being around all these people, but that’s only part of the thrill and adventure. Always be aware of what’s going on around you, but don’t forget to just have fun!

  • I love these photos, you really captured the craziness and fun of the Las Vegas strip! Also love the slightly washed out vibe, feels very vintage and summery. Can’t believe Britney & Kev were only married for such a short period of time, that’s hilarious!

    • Hi, Jane, thank you! Yes, that’s exactly what I had in mind; I’m glad you saw what I also had envisioned for this set of photos. 🙂 I was in college at the time, so I remember that day very well. Haha!

  • Your photos are amazing! It is so refreshing to see the Las Vegas strip during the daytime! I can definitely sense all the buzz you’re talking about. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thank you, Kim! Shot most of these while moving/stopped in traffic, so I’m pretty happy they turned out OK. Hehe! Of course, you’re welcome!

  • Oh my, a fellow Filipina! Please don’t freak out coz I just read your About page, hehe, I always do that when I visit a new blog.

    Lovely photos you have there in Las Vegas. It still looks busy even during daytime. I’m not into partying, but would still pass by The Strip at night just to experience it. The place does remind me of Macau, which is considered Asia’s Las Vegas.

    I know it’s sad, but I cracked up at Britney & Kevin’s short marriage. 55 hours, really?! I felt like they were just wasting money, but then again divorce isn’t new there.

    • Hello, Senyth! Kumusta? 🙂

      Maraming salamat! Yes, The Strip is still busy during the day, but it’s a little less intimidating than at night. I haven’t been to Macau, but I’ve seen photos from there, and I see the resemblance.

      Yes! A judge annulled their marriage shortly after; they were both very young then, so they didn’t know better.

  • I totally feel you on the blogging drafts thing, I have so many drafts I want to publish before the end of the year but I just keep forgetting about it or have something more recent I feel must go up as soon as possible

    I loved looking at the photos of Vegas, it still looks unreal to me! Much like how New York was before I went there! Excited to hear about your next adventure!

    • Hahaha I love it! I’m sure we’re not the only ones with drafts collecting cobwebs! 😉

      Thank you, Pauline (hahaha I almost typed your name as Pawlean)! Oh, I have so much more in store; I just need to dedicate some time to work on them! 😀

  • I haven’t been to Vegas yet and although I have seen it featured on TV programmes and films, I just realised I’d never seen photos of it like this. Lovely to see them and get a taste of the city.

    • Why, thank you, Taylor! I’ve only been to the city twice, too, but this is the first time that I was able to take it all in! The first time was a blurry 24 hours in the city! We were like walking zombies! Hahaha!

  • What amazing photos! You have such a talent, my goodness! insert heart eyes emoji here
    I’ve wanted to go to Vegas (or even just U.S.A. in general haha) for so long now and this post hasn’t helped that. 😛 You mostly see night-time photos of The Strip, so it’s refreshing to see it in the daylight. 🙂

    Christie’s Take on Life. xx

    • Aww thank you, Christie! So sweet of you to say! Well, when you ever make it out here, you have one more city to add to your bucket list (if you haven’t done so yet)! Based on previous comments, I quite get that reaction a lot! 😀

  • I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen so many photos of Las Vegas in the day time! It looks like a completely different city. I feel like you really get the old-school glamour when you see it in the sunlight.
    (Can you imagine how much that one building would cost to rent/lease/buy??!)

    • You and me both, Louise! I did post a similar set of photos taken at night, and while they’re exactly the same place, they seem different when taken during the day! Old-school glamour sounds about right! Oh, I bet it’s costly, especially in a prime location such as The Strip!
