Las Vegas, Nevada

  • About Las Vegas

    Nicknamed the Entertainment Capital of the World, Las Vegas is renowned for its spectacular entertainment, world-class dining and culinary talent, mega-hotel casino complexes – it is the ultimate escape. It is the only place you can spend the night partying in ancient Rome, wake up in Egypt, and brunch under the Eiffel Tower.

  • History

    Las Vegas was founded in 1905. For many years prior, it was merely a small settlement in the middle of the desert. However, several pivotal events occurred that helped Vegas grow into what it is today:

    • In 1928, the construction of the Hoover Dam brought thousands of workers to the area
    • Gambling was legalized in 1931, and downtown Las Vegas became an entertainment center for the dam workers and nearby Californians
    • In 1941, the luxurious El Rancho Vegas resort opened on what would later become the Las Vegas Strip. The Flamingo hotel was also opened in 1946, and the opening of these two resorts started a building boom and established a tradition of one-upmanship, with each new hotel/casino trying to outdo another. That tradition continues today!
  • Weather

    Las Vegas averages a daily maximum temperature for April that's between 74 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The days at Las Vegas start to heat up rapidly during April.
