Photos from Binion's Vegas

The exterior of Binion's exposes its old school nature with the neon and the sturdy brick.

Just out of the picture is Binion's pool, a small rectangle up on the 24th floor of the hotel. It's got a terrific view all the way around, but it much better for relaxing than swimming. It can get windy up here, too.

Binion's offers a free photo wil a million dollars, shown here encased in plastic and far from our sticky fingers. Which is unfortunate because we have some good ideas of what to do with a million bucks.

The casino at Binion's opens wide, like a good kid at the dentist, to Fremont Street. You can gamble away at craps just a few steps from your escape.
