Holiday ideas for Las Vegas
"Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada" reads the famous neon signs that surround the city, and fabulous it certainly is. Las Vegas is probably one of the most spectacular cities in the world, and one that is ever-changing to keep up with the times. An endless drive for novelty means that no two visits to the city are the same. Incredibly, Nevada was the first state to ban gambling, in 1909.
However, it was legalised again in 1931, drawing in the hundreds of workers who built the Hoover Dam. The Hoover Dam provides the power and water for Las Vegas and, having been built using federal money, is in part responsible for the boom that saw the city grow so rapidly during the middle of the 20th century.
