Giant Harley Dealership Opening Next To Vegas Sign
The famous Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign is getting a new next-door neighbor in the form of a sprawling Harley-Davidson dealership. The 55,000-square-foot business is scheduled to open later this week and offers motorcycles, rentals, clothing and accessories. Owners say it's the first store on the Strip to sell the bikes.
Co-owner Timothy Cashman said the shop had to apply for special zoning because car dealerships typically aren't allowed in the tourism corridor. He said it was approved because it's more akin to an attraction than a car lot. Cashman says he hopes tourists will cross the street to the dealership after visiting the sign. He's even got a snack bar area where visitors can use free Wi-Fi and recharge their phones after snapping pictures.
