Here is some helpful information about exciting Las Vegas!

The Northern Club was the first Las Vegas casino when it opened in 1931. (It's now the La Bayou.) Today, the Golden Nugget is the largest hotel and casino in the city. Most major casinos are downtown on the Fremont Street Experience, the Stratosphere being the major exception.

The Las Vegas valley stretches long past the neon lights, and your rental car can transport you to the amazing Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, or to breathtaking panoramic views at Mountain Charleston or the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area.

Las Vegas does not have major professional sports teams, although it does have the Las Vegas 51s of the Pacific Coast League, the AAA baseball farm team of the New York Mets.

Las Vegas was once a stopover for pioneers trekking west to settle areas like California. It became a city in the early 1900s, but it was the 1931 legalization of gambling and 1935 completion of the Hoover Dam that led to a boom in residents, tourism and the beginnings of the casino-hotels. Hoover Dam – 30 miles southeast of the city – forms Lake Mead, the biggest man-made lake in the country.

Las Vegas has one of the world's most advanced urban transportation systems. The Las Vegas Monorail Company was formed in 2000, but not everyone was happy about it. The taxi and limousine companies saw it as a threat to their business because a report predicted that the monorails will approximately have 26,600 riders per day. Thankfully, that conflict was resolved and we now enjoy more transportation options in the city.
