Vegas, incorporated in 1911, was founded by
railroad workers and ranchers and it soon
discovered that its greatest quality was its
casinos. In just a little over 100 years it has
become the Entertainment Capital of the World.
Come to Las Vegas to be pampered in its
world-class hotels & resorts and its
top-notch gambling in one of the four distinct
areas of Las Vegas...
- 'The Strip' is located on 3.5 miles of Las
Vegas Boulevard. There are more than 70,000
hotel rooms to be found along this stretch, in
some of the world's largest casinos and resorts.
Here you can find extreme-themed hotels, such as
an erupting volcano at The Mirage, colossal
dancing water fountains at The Bellagio,
pyramids and sphinxes at The Luxor, a skyscraper
facade at New York New York, and architecture to
match the Doge's Palace and the Rialto Bridge at
- 'Off the Strip' is a bit quieter where you can
find larger hotel rooms and a more relaxed
atmosphere with more luxury for the dollar.
Check out Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, M Resort,
The Platinum Hotel and Spa and The Palms Hotel
and Casino if you are looking for a place to
stay in Las Vegas away from the hustle and
- 'Downtown' is also known as 'Old Vegas' or
'Glitter Gulch'. This area tends to be less
expensive and quieter, and draws an older crowd.
A few of Downtown Las Vegas hotels and casinos
include: The Golden Nugget, Golden Gate Hotel
and Casino, The D Las Vegas Casino Hotel, El
Cortez Cabana Suites, and Downtown Grand.
- Las Vegas suburbs such as Henderson and
Summerlin have more laid-back casino hotels and
resorts and beautiful backdrop scenery such as
Lake Las Vegas in Henderson and Red Rock Canyon
in Summerlin. The best hotels bets in Henderson
are SpringHill Suites, TownePlace Suites by
Marriott, Railroad Pass Hotel and Casino and
Hawthorn Suites. Summerlin hotels include
