Las Vegas is the undisputed home of USA gambling and is promoted as being the ‘Entertainment Capital of the World’ although is often referred to with the less glamorous titles – Sin City and Vice City. Las Vegas was founded in 1905 and became a city in 1911. The growth of Las Vegas mushroomed during the construction of the nearby Hoover Dam in 1931 – 1936, and the legalization of gambling by the state of Nevada. The city became a Mecca for the dam construction workers who flocked to the casinos and speakeasies in downtown Las Vegas. Further growth happened in the 1940s when the El Rancho Vegas resort and Flamingo Hotel opened on what was to become the Las Vegas Strip (The original El Rancho was destroyed by fire in 1960). The Strip comprises 4 miles (6.7 km) of Las Vegas Boulevard South It extends from the Stratosphere Hotel at the north end to the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino at the south end. The Strip is the home to some of the largest casino, resort properties and hotels in the world, including – The Mirage, Las Vegas Hilton, Sahara Hotel & Casino, Riviera, New Frontier, Wynn Las Vegas, Treasure Island, Venetian Resort Hotel Casino, Imperial Palace, Caesar`s Palace, Bellagio, Bally’s, Paris Hotel, Aladdin Resort & Casino, Monte Carlo Resort & Casino, New York New York Hotel, Tropicana Resort and Casino, Excalibur Hotel and Casino, Luxor, and Four Seasons Hotel. Apart from the Strip, downtown Las Vegas is also popular with visitors especially the Fremont Street Experience mall, which includes famous hotel casinos such as the Golden Nugget, and the Four Queens Hotel & Casino. Many visitors to Las Vegas understandably go to gamble. Gamblers must be 21 or over and a valid ID with proof of age should be carried. Beginners to gambling are advised to study the various games before participating and it is quite appropriate to ask the dealer the house rules of the game. A good tip is to start playing during the day when the tables are less crowded.
