Las Vegas Monorail Updates

The Mecca of gambling in the states. No matter where you have gambled, until you have visited Las Vegas you will not know what you have missed. Occasionally you may hear about how nice a certain hotel is in some city. In Vegas you will find 15 or 20 of those types of hotels. You don't go to Vegas for just the gambling, but for the variety of shows, hotel decor and of course the people watching. If you have not been to Las Vegas, or if it has been a few years, you are in for a surprise. Because of the number of companies that provide packages to Las Vegas we prefer to do comaprative shopping using at least 3 providers from your area. After reviewing our hotel list,select the hotels you are interested in pricing and go to the price request form.

If you were to spell out numbers, how far would you have to go until you would find the letter "A"? … one thousand!

The courthouse was the site of several historical court cases, including the Kefauver Senate hearings on organized crime in the early 1950s.

A flashy monument to giddy excess, Las Vegas is the place to escape from all sense of convention and restraint. A long way from its origins as a middle-of-nowhere railway stopover, Nevada's legalization of gambling, in 1931, catapulted Las Vegas into its fate as the nucleus of the gaming world. Known by all as "The Gambling and Entertainment Capital of the World," in recent years the attractions have expanded to include theme parks, family activities, excellent shopping, spas, and world-class golfing.

Nonetheless, it's still the lure of bright lights and easy money that keeps 'em coming. The whole world comes to Vegas to let loose and, in turn, you find yourself happily lost in a surreal replica of skylines from all the great cities of the earth. From Manhattan, to Venice, to the Pyramids, every corner you turn transports you someplace else. If you didn't know better, you might think it was just some strange desert mirage - and Elvis might still be in the building!
