Tropicana Hotel & Casino
3801 Las Vegas Blvd
April 4, 1957 - Present
The Tropicana opened on April 4, 1957. This gorgeous
18 million dollar hotel and casino was known as the “Tiffany of the
Strip”. The iconic tulip fountain was 60 feet tall and at night changed
colors with spectacular lighting. In 1959 the Tropicana brought in the Folies
Bergere show from Europe and played there for over 50 years.
The Tropicana was the first hotel and casino that did not force the guests
to walk through the casino to get to their hotel rooms.
The Tropicana opened in 1957 and these
50¢ and $1 chips were on the tables. I got them from a lady who told me
that her husband forgot to cash them in before they went back home. They were
here in 1958. Long Obsolete!
