Las Vegas Overview
Las Vegas, an ever-changing fantasy-land of a city, has seen unbelievable expansion since it emerged from the desert just over 100 years ago. The Las Vegas metropolitan area contains the largest concentration of people in the state of Nevada.
 
The sights and sounds of Las Vegas are enjoyed by millions of visitors every year throughout the world.  In 2015 alone, the city welcomed approximately 42 millions visitors, out of which 16% are international visitors. Casinos and celebrity shows are the two major attractions for the area. Shopping, conventions, fine dining, and outdoor beauty are also major forces in attracting tourist dollars.  The famed Las Vegas Strip sits at the heart of Las Vegas city adorned with unparalleled attractions like dancing fountains, a replica of the renown Eiffel Tower, and some of the world's largest and most prestigious resorts.  As seen from space, Las Vegas is the brightest city in the world.
 

Over the past few years, retirees have been moving to the metro area, driving businesses that support them, from housing to health care. The lack of business and income taxes makes Nevada an attractive place for many companies to relocate, or expand existing operations.

 

HISTORY:

The first European visitors to the Las Vegas Valley were reported in 1829. Las Vegas began as a stop-over on the pioneer trails to the west, and became a popular railroad town in the early 20th century. With the proliferation of the railroads, however, Las Vegas became less important, but the completion of the nearby Hoover Dam in 1935 resulted in growth in the number of residents and increased tourism. The dam, located 48 km or 30 miles southeast of the city, formed Lake Mead, the largest man-made lake and reservoir in the U.S.

The legalization of gambling in 1931 led to the advent of the casino/hotels for which Las Vegas is famous.

 

LIFE IN LAS VEGAS:

Life in Las Vegas is truly multi-faceted. If it is excitement and entertainment you crave, the Strip is the place. Want to enjoy nature? You can hike the breathtaking, colorful peaks of Red Rock Canyon, boat on Lake Mead, or ski at Mount Charleston--all are less than an hour's ride from any point in the city.

Las Vegas also offers an Arts District filled with art galleries and curio and antique shops. The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, presents Broadway shows, opera and dance performances since its grand opening in 2012.

And the city boasts at least half a dozen museums, 4 public golf courses, over 50 public parks, and a zoo, as well as many charming residential shopping areas filled with boutiques, unique eateries, and specialty stores including Town Square, The District and Tivoli Village.

 

CLIMATE:

Las Vegas is situated within Clark County in an arid basin on the desert floor, surrounded by dry mountains. The elevation is around 2,030 ft (620 m) above sea level.  Within the city there are many lawns, trees, and other greenery. Due to water resource issues, there is now a movement to encourage “desert-scapes”, lawns and yards comprised mostly of decorative rock and desert plants which require far less water than traditional landscaping elements.

The city enjoys abundant sunshine year-round with an average of about 300 sunny days per year.
