Las Vegas is one of the most famous cities on Earth – synonymous with hedonism, great entertainment and uniquely American excess. Two things made Las Vegas the city it is. The first happened in 1928 when the US government authorised the construction of the Boulder Dam (now known as the Hoover Dam) which brought about the migration of thousands of workers in need of something to do at the weekend. The second happened in 1931 when gambling, illegal in California, was legalised in neighbouring Nevada. The rest, as they say, is history. Although initially built around gambling (and still the best place
in the world to go for it) Vegas today offers a lot more than craps and poker. A significant percentage of tourists come and go without having gambled a dime, but instead eaten in some of the best restaurants, stayed in the most opulent hotels, drunk in the best bars, watched the best shows and shopped in the finest boutiques, as well as enjoyed the near permanent sunshine.
