This lovely vintage card was mailed using a six cent California 1769-1969 mission bell stamp, postmarked in Las Vegas October 17 1969. It was mailed to Miss Catherine Robbins, 231 Washington Street, Riverside, N.J. It reads:

What a place. Money, money, money – going, going, gone. Got here by way of Neb. Okla. Texas, New Mexico, Arizona. Love, Martha – Don – Mother

Of course, Caesar’s Palace is still in business. Wikipedia notes “Building of the 14-story Caesars Palace hotel began in 1962. That first tower would have 680 rooms on the 34-acre site […] The hotel was inaugurated on August 5, 1966.” Martha, Don and Mother visited Caesar’s just after the start of construction for an expansion of the hotel (under the name Caesar’s World).

Bob and I last visited Las Vegas March 17 – 22, 2012. We did some shopping in the Forum Shops (I bought a dress at Bettie Page). Here’s a night shot, from that visit:

And here’s a photo out of our history, from our trip in 2007:

Vegas on Demand has a bit more of the history of Caesar’s Palace, including first wedding, acts that have played, etc.

Lest you think Caesar’s Palace is a place stuck in history, they’ve got some new things going on: “Caesars Entertainment is redefining the iconic Las Vegas skyline with The LINQ, an open-air retail, dining and entertainment district, anchored by the world’s tallest observation wheel, known as the High Roller. Located at the heart of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, The LINQ will span more than 200,000-square-feet of gross leasable space and feature more than 30 unique retail, dining and entertainment experiences. the wheel will feature 28 glass-enclosed cabins that will unveil broad views of the famed-resort city in the 30 minutes it takes to complete one full revolution. Each cabin will accommodate up to 40 people and will be available for individual or group experiences. The LINQ is scheduled to make its debut in late 2013.”

Can’t wait for our next trip!
