The History of Las Vegas



The growth of Las Vegas is a fascinating story. It all started in the early 1900s, when a railway was built between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. This brought more people and goods to the area, and it wasn't long before entrepreneurs saw opportunities to make money.


In the 1930s, construction of the Hoover Dam provided jobs and a reason for workers to stay in the area. This also brought people to the nearby city of Las Vegas, which at the time was a small, dusty town.


In the 1940s, the first casinos were built on what is now the famous Las Vegas Strip. The Flamingo, built by notorious mobster Bugsy Siegel, was one of the first and most famous. The city continued to grow and flourish in the 1950s and 1960s, when it became known as the "Entertainment Capital of the World."


Today, Las Vegas is an international destination for travelers looking for exceptional entertainment, sleek hotel accommodations, and fantastic food. It has grown into a global destination known for its luxury resorts, fine dining, world-class entertainment, and much more.
