Few tourists venture to North Las Vegas. I rarely venture there myself. It is not too far from familiar places though - in distance. In some ways however, North Las Vegas is very far away.
To put the distance in perspective. If you were to take Main Street from The Stratosphere Hotel to the area of Fremont Street (Main Street Station Hotel area etc.), and then continue on Main Street for the same distance again, you would then be greeted by North Las Vegas.
What does one see when arriving in North Las Vegas?
One sees a Welcome To North Las Vegas sign overhead; (at Owens).
And to the forward left there is a shopping cart encampment by a bus stop.
Welcome to North Las Vegas? Indeed!
