Snow in the Desert

The pint-size Eiffel Tower. The miniature Statue of Liberty. A medieval castle next to an Egyptian pyramid. In case you haven’t noticed, we’re pretty shameless when it comes to ripping off the intellectual property of other cities and cultures (and not paying a dime in royalties). In recent years, our sampling has focused on outdoor winter attractions—everywhere you turn this time of year, kids are zipping around ice skating rinks and sledding down hills of real snow, like here at the Give With Me Winter Wonderland at the Western Hotel. Sure, this Downtown attraction is as out of place in the desert as Lady Liberty, but we’re not about to apologize for importing a little Northeastern fun. Just as we won’t apologize in March when we’re walking around in T-shirts while Old Man Winter is still wreaking havoc most everywhere else. Vegas wins again!
