Tropicana opened in April of 1957 in a location that was considered to be a hindrance due to how far it sat from the rest of the strip properties. Today, Tropicana Ave and Las Vegas Boulevard is the busiest intersection in the United States. (Vintage Vegas Segment Research, multiple sources)

Twitpic of the Trip
We didn't have the iPhone mophie with us so we had to play battery management everyday. At the end of the trip, I started getting nervous because I hadn't been taking a ton of "Twitpic of the Trip" worthy pictures so I started paying attention. It didn't take long to find something beautiful to take a picture of. Riding down the elevator from our room, I saw this one and just started taking as many pictures as I could while we were going down. This was our favorite.
