Las Vegas Unveils New Gateway Arches

Move aside St. Louis...Las Vegas is stepping up their arch game!

Las Vegas has long been known as the home to bright stars and even brighter lights. As one of the entertainment capitols of the world, the Nevada city receives just shy of fifty million tourists each year.

Now the city has added yet another spectacle to take your breath away. "The Gateway Arches" is a new 80-foot structure that holds over 13,000 LED lights. The retro Las Vegas sign in the perfect backdrop for a vacation selfie as you visit the city. The arches even play music.

You can see them for yourself along the south end of the strip near vintage downtown Vegas. No matter what your plans are, it's a can't miss attraction on Las Vegas Boulevard.

The entertainment districts in the city took some big hits during the national shutdown due to COVID-19. Now the city is reopening and inviting visitors back into theaters.

The MGM Grand Las Vegas recently brought back multiple shows which had been on an indefinite hiatus since March. David Copperfield, Carrot Top, and more can be seen performing again in new spaced out performance spaces.

We can't wait to visit the arches ourselves when tourism is safe again!
