Marvel's Agents of SHIELD

  The Southern California locations where Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is filmed.


In Episode 15 ("Yes Men"), the Asgardian sorceress Lorelei enchants agent Ward (at a biker bar)
so that he longs to serve her.  Getting astride his motorcycle, she instructs him to
"Take me somewhere grand, deserving of a ruler...a Queen."

To which Ward replies: "I know just the place."

As this scene opens, we see Ward & Lorelei ride into the heart of Las Vegas.

They drive past a fake Eiffel tower, a fake New York skyline, large billboards of Britney Spears,
and wind up at a posh hotel/casino. Lorelei is suitably impressed by its faux Roman grandeur.

Not surprisingly, these scenes were actually shot on 'The Strip'
(AKA Las Vegas Blvd), in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The fake Eiffel Tower, and the faux French palace we see in the photo above, is
located at the Paris Las Vegas
hotel/casino, at 3655 S. Las Vegas Blvd, in Las Vegas.

It's on the east side of the street, and they are heading north.

The fake New York skyline can be found at the New York, New York hotel/casino,
at 3790 S. Las Vegas Blvd, in Las Vegas.

It's on the west side of the street, and they are heading south.

The Britney Billboards are on north end of the Miracle Mile shops
at the Planet Hollywood hotel/casino,
at 3667 S. Las Vegas Blvd, in Las Vegas.

(That's right next door to (south of) the Paris Las Vegas hotel.)

It's on the east side of the street, and they are heading north.

         

(Here is a matching Google StreetView panorama.)



The posh Hotel/Casino where they finally arrive is Caesar's Palace hotel/casino,
at 3570 S. Las Vegas Blvd, in Las Vegas.

(That's right next door to (south of) the Paris Las Vegas hotel.)

It's on the west side of the street, and they are heading southwest in the photo above.

         

(Here is a matching Google StreetView panorama.)



However, although it appears that they walk into the hotel lobby, in fact, the scene of them
looking at a marble statue of a goddess was actually shot inside the nearby Forum Shops,
an Ancient Roman-themed shopping mall at
3500 S. Las Vegas Blvd, which is part
of the Caesar's Palace resort (and just north of the hotel/casino).

         

(Here is a matching Google StreetView panorama.)


( The route they take into town actually makes no sense.  One moment they are headed one
way on the Strip, and the next moment they are headed in the opposite direction.
