Las Vegas is known as many things; Sin City, The Entertainment Capital of the World, The Marriage Capital of the World – just to name a few. Tourism and gaming are economic drivers for Vegas, with casino resort destinations all around the city. A few famous casino names you may recognize along the world renown Strip and the Fremont Street Experience include The Bellagio, MGM Grand, The Mirage, Caesars Palace, The Venetian, The Palms Casino Resort, and The Palazzo. These casinos are hosts to luxury, world-class entertainment, fine dining, upscale shopping, and, of course, gambling. Though the Strip is an attraction in and of itself, Las Vegas has other world famous destinations including the Hoover Dam, and just a few hours away, the Grand Canyon.

Along with the bright lights, the superstar shows, and a party lifestyle, Las Vegas is the product of an impressive history that has led it to its status as a true American landmark city – from its rich Native American heritage, to its background with deep ties to organized crime. Las Vegas is home to many museums and cultural destinations that give in-depth detail to the cultural and historic fabric of the city. Upon exploring Vegas, most find that there's more here than what meets the eye.
