Photo Friday: The Eiffel Tower at Paris, Las Vegas

Eiffel Tower, Paris, Las Vegas

The infamous Las Vegas strip stretches for a little over four miles along Las Vegas Boulevard South between Sahara Avenue and Russell Road, and is home to 19 of the world’s largest hotels.  One of those hotels Is the Paris Hotel & Casino, located at 3655 Las Vegas Boulevard South.

Paris, at the name suggests, is themed after the French capital, and includes replicas of several noted Paris attractions, including the Montgolfier balloon, the Arc de Triomphe, La Fontaine des Mers, and the Eiffel Tower.  When this Eiffel Tower was built it was originally intended to be the same size as the original, but the property was too close to the airport so it had to be scaled back.

In a city with plenty of glitz and glamour, this Eiffel Tower is as popular with visitors as the original.
