When you think about an underground bunker, you never think about the word luxury alongside of it. This is one bunker you need to see!
With all the craziness going on in the world right now, an underground bunker sounds like a good idea! Especially, if you are lucky enough to have a luxury one in Las Vegas. This is one bunker you need to see to believe.
An Underground Bunker With Style!
Typically, the underground bunker trend started in the 1950s and into the 60s. Americans wanted a safe place to shelter during the Cold War during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Unfortunately, the threat of Russian nuclear rockets loomed over our heads and no one felt safe.
More so, folks felt the need to construct an underground bunker where they would store food and other necessities. Since then, these bunkers, now left abandoned, transformed into modern bunkers or storage areas.
Today, we face a different kind of crisis where people once again scurry to find the safest place to shelter their families. If you want to construct an underground bunker, I say do it in style!
