    There are a few casinos DT that work with google maps fairly well to give you a tour of the Casino: the D is a good example of this. It you type "The D Las Vegas" into your Google browser and hit enter, you'll get a couple pictures at the right hand side of the page and one of them may say (it does for my browser) "See inside". In that link you can click from the front entrance of the lower level casino floor all the way to the back entrance of the casino floor and stop at multiple panoramic views to check out the games and floor layout. Due to perceived security threats, I understand many casino's reluctance to participate in this sort of online tour but does anyone know of a good link where you can tour virtually through some of the casinos and through Freemont Street? Google Street level maps will let you cruise around the streets surrounding the Freemont experience (I actually like reading the deals on the side of the Freemont Casino even though I'm sure they've long sing changed as pictures are static and the real world is dynamic (I get it!)) but I think it would be neat if there was something set up to virtually walk around the casinos as well!

    Also, if something were set up where an agreement was reached with the city to fly a drone around the strip for an hour from 9-10P on Saturday nights, equipped with a camera and a HD feed to your computer, would you tune in? Way too into this.... Thoughts?

    THANKS for the info, I knew that they had done something on Google Maps that allowed you to look at the Casino Layout, but I didn't realize it was a virtual tour! Using Google maps, I just typed in "Mirage Las Vegas" and the "See Inside" and looked at the tour there.

    I think this is AWESOME. I love Driving the streets virtually, and this just added a new dimension. WEEKS of fun!
