Tivoli Village

Back again to Tivoli Village, a shopping center that opened up over on the west side. It's basically a small outdoor shopping mall. It was sitting untouched in the middle of construction for several years, then finally finished and opened a few months ago. Most of the storefronts are still empty, business being what it is. There are several restaurants and a large underground parking area. I think it was supposed to be part of a condominium complex, but those buildings are probably quite a few years off if to be build at all.

It's a different type of architecture, not sure what they were going for but the name makes me think of someone's idea if Italian.


On weekends they have a band set up on the central street, and a small farmer's market.


Most of the trees are big versions of those tacky crystal trees I associate with grandma's parlor, but about twenty times as big.


The pizza parlor there was pretty good.

This place will probably look great when it achieves the patina of age. I like buildings that look like they've been around for a while, like Luxor, which has been in Vegas for thousands of years, right?

I will really enjoy reading your blog because everything I know about Vegas is from the movies. It will be great to get a local perspective!
