Boardwalk BABOOM!

The Boardwalk, a dump which stood in one form or another on the strip for 38 years was blown up this year. Unlike the recently closed Stardust, the loss of the Boardwalk probably didn't make too many gamblers shed a tear. The Boardwalk had no real history, no real personality, in fact 80% of Vegas visitors didn't even know it was there in its last 10 years. The place was a dump... casino : gross, food : worse, rooms : embarassing. Fortunately, the Boardwalk is nothing more than cement chunks in a landfill - and not a day too late.
