A Look at las vegas

What Happens in Vegas...

In the middle of the Mojave Desert at the southern tip of the state of Nevada nestles the neon oasis of Las Vegas.
It is a city of excess, energy, life and money. Its reason for existing is to provide entertainment – and quite possibly to take your cash. 
Many visitors find it hard to believe that this incredible city has only been around (in its present form) for just over 70 years. The metamorphosis into the bright and brash city of today began back in 1931. This was when the state of Nevada legalised gambling. Then in 1946 Mafia don ‘Bugsy’ Siegel opened the sensational Flamingo Hilton on Highway 19 and so Las Vegas Boulevard was born.
Las Vegas attracts over 35 million people every year but it is no longer purely a holiday for those who just want to gamble. The casinos are still flourishing but the city has geared itself to offer more to attract families too. Today it offers everything from wildlife viewing to theme park thrills and spills, shopping to golf and world class shows to intimate night clubs. It is now very much a destination for anyone who wants to have fun.  
As you walk down 'The Strip' you could be forgiven to think you’d stepped into another world. As you walk along you will be able to see the skylines of New York and Paris, discover the canals of Venice and the Pyramids of Egypt and, at Treasure Island, see a full on-sea battle between a Pirate ship and a British Galleon. 
Home to 18 out of 21 of the largest hotels in the world you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding somewhere to stay. You’ll also be pleasantly surprised to learn that the room rates and restaurant bills in Las Vegas are the lowest in the western worldMore info
