Long a standby off the Las Vegas Strip, the New Frontier Casino and its immense marquee has held its own among the sea of neon since 1955.

The New Frontier Casino in Las Vegas was to have shut its doors one minute after midnight Monday morning July 16, 2007. According to the website lasvegasfocus.com, the implosion will be planned for sometime early next year. The new owners will then build a Plaza Hotel in its place, like the Plaza Hotel in New York. new owners of the land are going to spend between 5 and 7 billion dollars to build a Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas, which will resemble the Plaza hotel in New York.

This news is no real surprise after its neighbor, the Stardust, met its demise last year and was imploded earlier in 2007. The New Frontier is well known on the Strip and the huge marquee can be seen for blocks. 07-07


UPDATE 11/07 : The New Frontier Casino was imploded at 2:37a.m. early Tuesday morning November 13, 2007. According to the November 13, 2007 edition of the Las Vegas Sun, the old hotel and casino, which was the 2nd oldest property on the Las Vegas Strip, will now become a Plaza resort.

The Klondike was previously a Motel 6 and was converted into the Klondike in 1978 with a casino, restaurant, bar, lounge, and hotel. According to the Las Vegas Sun, the property first opened in 1962 and will be demolished to make room for a much larger hotel and casino. 07-07


UPDATE 07/08 : The Klondike was demolished in March 2008. 07-08

The Nevada Landing Hotel and Casino has been a familiar sight off the I-15 since it opened in 1989. Together with its sister hotel the Gold Strike on the opposite side of the interstate, the two casinos would magically glow in the fast disappearing darkness between Stateline and Vegas.


On March 20, 2007, MGM Mirage closed the Nevada Landing with plans to build a planned community of affordable housing, shops, and a new casino. More info can be found at Wikipedia. 07-07


UPDATE 10/10 : All that's left at the site is the huge marquee. The casino buildings are long gone and the sign no longer lights the night off the I-15. 10-10
