    My Trip Report

    IMG_20201011_082518841.jpg My wife and I was a little concerned about making a return visit to Vegas after hearing all the bad. It has changed, the clientele has for sure gone for the worse. Graffiti is all over, mostly noticed on the former ceasers properties. I talked to a security guard working at the Wynn and he said they have a problem and it for sure shows. The Cromwell is still closed and the gang crap is all over the painted surfaces. People have thrown liquids of some sort all over windows, pictures and anything else they could ugly up. For the first time I see a heroin addict shooting up in the bushes along Las Vegas Blvd in front of the flamingo to be exact. Gangs of 15 to 20 are running together down the strip smoking weed and up to no good, I seen them giving grief to a homeless dude. Only today (Sunday)out of 4 days did we encounter the scooter problem. At least 10 were acting a fool on them and not one of the disabled. Going full speed in front of the casinos not a good thing for sure. The weed smell is everywhere along the strip even on the scooters, the elevators, hallways, you name it, it's there. The good is a LVPD officer said they are cracking down starting about 2 weeks ago, I never really felt threatened, but it's for sure not my old Vegas of a year or two ago. The wynn has went as far as no marijuana on the resort anywhere.
