Closed Vegas Casinos Tour September 2020
It’s no secret that times are tough in Las Vegas right now. The economy is slowly coming back to life, but the bread and butter of Vegas is tourism and that sector will take a long time to recover. Add in Vegas’ huge reliance on large gatherings (shows, conferences, etc.) and the prognosis isn’t good.
Las Vegas is one of the biggest tourist destinations in the world and thus has tons of spaces dedicated to serving those tourists. With so much supply and not enough demand, the city has had to close tons of restaurants, venues and yes even entire hotels/casinos because there simply aren’t enough people coming.
Casinos Closed Since March
Vegas casinos closed back in March and were able to reopen back in June, but unfortunately as of now many casinos still have boarded up doors and no announced reopening date. Given the fact that these buildings are normally open 24/7, the irony is real and they’re interesting to look at.
A couple of months ago I did a very popular video highlighting the closed casinos of Vegas and I have now updated it as of September 2020 (see above or watch on YouTube). Unfortunately so many popular Vegas casinos are closed, but the good news is some places have started to reopen. In this video you’ll see many of the still closed casinos of Vegas (as of today) and an update on some of the casinos which have just opened in the past couple of weeks! Progress.
This closed Vegas casinos tour includes: Park MGM, Bally’s, Tropicana, Oyo, Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho, Texas Station, Palms, Rio, Eastside Cannery, Colorado Belle, Buffalo Bill’s, Main Street Station & Planet Hollywood! You don’t want to miss what Vegas looks like right now even if it is a little sad.
Closed Vegas Casinos Tour September 2020 – Bottom Line
Las Vegas has tons of closed, boarded and shuttered casinos but things are headed in the right direction with visitor numbers increasing slightly and more casinos opening. It’s a fascinating time in Las Vegas. What do you think is the future of the closed casinos in the video? Let me know in the comments.
