The Las Vegas that Almost Was
The Las Vegas that Almost Was

AIR DATE: July 27, 2011

During the last ten years as Las Vegas expanded both vertically and horizontally, there were a slew of projects that never manifested.  There was a plan to build a hotel that would have been a replica of the Titanic.  There were two proposals for hotel casinos after famous television shows: the Beverly Hillbilly Resort and the Adams Family Hotel.  There was even one called moon.  We look at some of the more ridiculous, odd and funny ideas that never were in Las Vegas.
