Caesars Palace

Caesar's Palace and the Forum Shops

These photos are from a business trip to Las Vegas in October, 2008

Caesars Palace

In between the daytime and nighttime photos on the Bellagio page, I walked up and down the "strip" checking out many of the casinos. I didn't go into very many of them, but I did get lots of photos.

As you walk north along Las Vegas Boulevard (the "strip") from the Bellagio, the next thing you come to is Flamingo Avenue. If you were to turn left, you would be heading for The Palms, The Gold Coast and the Rio casinos. I walked north across Flamingo Avenue, and the next casino along the strip is Caesar's Palace, as you can see from some of the Bellagio photos.

Here are some photos of Caesar's Palace:

In this photo, you can see the Flamingo across the street. I'll have some photos of that later.

In the next photo, the poster in the middle features Bette Midler, who was the headliner at Caesar's Palace at the time.

Here is the "coliseum." Also, you can see the sign for Planet Hollywood. There is a Planet Hollywood restaurant at Caesar's Palace, and they also have their own hotel & casino down the street a ways.

And here is a statue of Caesar himself.

The Forum Shops

As you continue north on the strip, past Caesar's Palace, you come to the Forum Shops, which, of course, are part of Caesar's Palace.

Here is a close-up of the fountain -- a copy of the Trevi Fountain in Rome.

Inside the Forum Shops is this statue of a griffin:

Have you ever seen a curved escalator? Neither had I until I came in here.
