Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a part of Las Vegas, Nevada's Clark County, home to over 600,000 people. It's known for its casinos, entertainment, nightlife, and shopping. The city has many lavish hotels on the famed Las Vegas Strip and other attractions such as museums, galleries, shows, film festivals, and more. Las Vegas has something to offer everyone - no matter your style or budget.


Las Vegas has a long and storied history, dating to its establishment as a trading post in 1844. After the city was officially founded in 1905, it grew exponentially over the following decades, becoming renowned for its casinos, gambling, entertainment, and nightlife.

The city experienced further development in the 1940s when The Strip was developed, leading to increased tourism and investment that would only continue to grow. Thanks to the local economy and population growth, Las Vegas became increasingly influential in Nevada politics and eventually even saw the construction of iconic landmarks such as the Stratosphere Tower and the Luxor Hotel.

Though Las Vegas has changed dramatically since its early days of saloons, casinos, and mob activity, it remains to be America's one of the most renowned cities today.
