Why you should go to Las Vegas !
Las Vegas is one of the top tourist destinations in the world, welcoming over 37 million visitors per year, and winning high praise for consistent delivery of indulgent, over-the-top glamour. Whether you're here to shop, gamble, dine out, or see a concert, Vegas shows everybody a good time.
Over the past decade the LGBT presence here has grown by leaps and bounds, making it a safe and friendly place to party for all the colors of the rainbow flag. Some hotels even employ a "pride concierge" and there's an LGBT Center in downtown Vegas, along with the local chapter of the Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.
The history of Las Vegas is a uniquely American one, and it has re-invented itself several times over the last century. The first casinos here were built by mafiosos looking to launder their money, and though the crime bosses are a thing of the past, Vegas retains a hard edge that makes for a compelling atmosphere. But there's more to Vegas than the glitter of the Strip.
Looking for some outdoor adventure? Head west to the Spring Mountains for world-class rock-climbing and hiking, or out to the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead for some fun on the water. Traveling with family? There are zoos, theme parks, and roller coasters, as well as educational exhibits and aquariums. Need to relax? The hotel spas here are the best you'll find anywhere, and can massage, steam, and polish you into nirvana. It's been called a playground for adults, and with a little planning and foresight, Las Vegas is a great place to unwind.been therewishlist
