|FOUNTAINS AT CAESARS PALACE
Since 1962, the Fountains at Caesars Palace have adorned the "front yard"
of the Roman-themed Caesars Palace. While many other famous Las Vegas
hotels have fallen to clear the way for newer concepts - Caesars has stood
the test of time, and endured as probably Las Vegas' greatest testament to
the dreams of its early visionaries. In this case, the legendary Jay Sarno.
In 1967 the Fountains were the object of nation-wide spectacle when Evil
Knievel attempted to jump them with his motorcycle. The stunt failed. Knievel
incurred a crushed pelvis and femur, fractures to his hip, wrist and both
ankles, and a concussion that kept him in a coma for 29 days.
More than two decades later, in 1989, his son Robby Knievel successfully
cleared the now-famed Fountains at Caesars on a considerably superior
motorcycle - again to the delight of a national audience!
The Fountains at Caesars are a delight to visit day or night. There are many
elegant flower gardens surrounding the fountains, as well as benches to sit on
while you enjoy this (oddly) serene place on the Las Vegas Strip.
