Las Vegas is the largest city in the US state of Nevada. Nicknamed Sin City and the Entertainment Capital of the World, it is situated in the midst of the southern Nevada desert landscape. Las Vegas was destined to become a distribution and transportation center. Easy access to California, Arizona, Utah and many other places in the west has helped to make Las Vegas a primary warehousing point for several large nationally based corporations. The city has giant mega-casino hotels, decorated with lavish care and attention to detail to create a fantasy-like atmosphere. The casinos often have names and themes that evoke romance, mystery, and far-away destinations.
Las Vegas, Nevada is a vibrant pulsating city and the largest adult playground in the world. It is a community that was created from the wastelands of the Mojave Desert in Nevada specifically to provide a gambling and entertainment oasis for the titillation seeking residents of post-war Los Angeles. Everything in Las Vegas has been done (or overdone) on a grand and spectacular scale. Along the Las Vegas strip, a black glass pyramid rises over a hundred meters above the desert with a larger than full sized replica of the Sphinx at its entry. Next to it, sits a larger than life castle with garishly colored turrets. Across the street, is a scaled-down skyline of New York City complete with a Brooklyn Bridge and a Statue of Liberty. Beyond that, you can see a half-sized replica of the Eiffel Tower, a near full sized replica of the Piazza San Marco from Venice and a large volcano that erupts flames every thirty minutes.
Everything in America is big, but in Las Vegas, everything is huge, including hotels, resorts, shopping malls and the legendary casinos, which are simply vast. Some of the city's casinos have literally thousands of slot machines and many hundreds of card tables. Several of the buildings now hold truly impressive world records, such as the Stratosphere Tower at Las Vegas Boulevard South, which is home to the word's highest roller coaster and also America's fastest elevator, and the Castaways Hotel and Bowling Center, where the largest tenpin bowling alley in the world is located, boasting some 106 bowling lanes.
The robust economy of Las Vegas has its source in the over 30 million visitors a year. The principal attractions are entertainment, gambling, climate, proximity to national parks, gorgeous hotels, 24 hour atmosphere, cheap lodging and food, major sporting events, and hundreds of other diversions. A beautiful jewel set in the middle of a wild and dazzling desert landscape, sightseeing in Las Vegas is incredible, from the glittering Strip to the wilds of Nevada and beyond. Tourists to Las Vegas are never disappointed, as there is plenty to see and do, whether you want to taste a desert barbecue, see the man-made wonder of Hoover Dam or nature’s marvel: the Grand Canyon.
Although the principal draw card is still gambling, Las Vegas is now marketed as a family destination and there is no shortage of theme parks, shopping malls or golf courses. However, the vast majority of visitors come to gamble and the incredible displays are mostly designed to lure passers-by into the casinos, and once there it's hard to leave; the exits are discreetly hidden.
Located in the middle of the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas is hot and dry during summer with mild winters, and plenty of sunshine all year round. In the height of summer, during July and August, the mercury often soars above 100ºF (38ºC). Winters are cooler and bring winds and cold nights, with daytime highs of around 60ºF (16ºC) and chilly nights averaging 40ºF (4ºC).
