Las Vegas, Nevada
"Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" - this sign at the south end
of the world-famous "Strip" has welcomed guests to one of the
world's largest gaming metropolises since 1959. Las Vegas is the
largest city in the US state of Nevada and is best known for its
many casinos and wedding chapels. The city owes its present
glory to the construction of the Hoover Dam from 1931 to 1935
and the legalization of gambling in 1931. As a result, many
casinos have been and still are being built, especially along
the "Strip" and Fremont Street. The big houses, such as B. the "Bellagio",
the hotel "New York, New York", the "Luxor" or the "Venetian
Resort Hotel". The “Strip” and the “Freemont Street Experience”
are so-called mandatory visits of every Las Vegas visitor.
Las Vegas has much more to offer than gambling. There is so
much to see that you could very well spend a complete vacation
in the city. In numerous museums, different areas are presented
thematically, such as: B. International and national art,
history and vegetation of Nevada and much more. The very brave
venture to the top of the Stratosphere Tower. Here, several
rides offer spectacular activities, some of which allow you to
float freely above the 350 m high abyss. The Hoover Dam
southeast of the city is also a great sight. It dams the
Colorado River to Lake Mead and is a major water source for Las
Vegas. It's also worth a trip to the nearby Valley of Fire,
