MGM Opens Up

MGM Grand Hotel and Casino
According an article on Las Vegas Sun, MGM Grand will open its walls along the Las Vegas Strip so that the people who pass by can see right inside. The front facade walls from the iconic gold lion to the M&M’s World is coming down.

Casinos used to be designed as dark, closed spaces without clocks and cellphone signals so that customers inside would forget everything else but gambling. MGM's move joins the recent trend that makes casinos more open and connected to the outside world. It also represents the effort from casino and hotel operators to diversify entertainment options  to shopping and other activities other than gaming.
