Entertainment Capital of the World

Las Vegas is a city of controlled chaos. Affectionately known by the following nicknames; Sin City, The City of Lights, The Marriage Capital of the World, The Entertainment Capital of the World, and Lost Wages. Las Vegas In Spanish means "the meadows".

Founded in 1905, Las Vegas has gone from a Mormon influence in the mid 1800's, to the booming railroad tycoons of the late 1800's, to the gaming capital it is today that began in the early 1900's.

Las Vegas is now a city of Mega-Resorts/Hotels, Entertainment Parks, Shops, Malls, Casinos, Restaurants, Night-Clubs, Live Sporting Events, Shows and Concerts. A city of pure decadence, where you can sometimes rub elbows with the rich and famous.

A Disneyland for grown-ups. Anything is available in Las Vegas, the good and sometimes the not so good. The one thing that Las Vegas is not: Las Vegas is never boring.

    Yeahhhh!! Great pics and tips. BTW...Vegas still has a huge Mormon influence. Believe it or not, it is a conservative town politically. I LOVE the Bellagio, had a friend who was a gondola driver at the Venetian, and you've been to the same places as me!~
