Califoria Hotel & Casino • Las Vegas USA

The California Hotel is a block off Fremont street. This is a reflection of the Cal on wet pavement (EOS 7D & EF-s 15-85 4.0-5.6 IS USM).

Once inside the Cal or Main Street, I feel like I stepped into rural Hawaii. These casinos mainly attract folks from Hawaii's neighbor islands and Oahu countryside. I rarely observe such heavy pidgin and strange clothing in Honolulu, but it's the status quo at the Cal and Main Street. Also, the median age of Hawaii patrons must be 85! Although both casinos are pretty underwhelming, they have clean hotel rooms and are a few blocks from Las Vegas Premium Outlets.
