Very good insight. Most likely Downtown will never achieve "true" destination status. Vegas and the Strip are synonymous to most people's minds as far as what they perceive as Las Vegas. There are people who see Downtown as a destination (myself included) but the majority of visitors view the Downtown area as a side trip on their visit. The changes Downtown seem to attract more people that normally would only visit the Strip to come. I think this is not a bad thing, but I hope Downtown does not try to imitate the Strip but rather maintain it's quaint, rustic, laid back identity. Maybe Downtown will one day become Vegas's destination within a destination. Not a bad thing to be imho.
