About Las Vegas in America

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, or so the old saying goes. Las Vegas is the most highly populated city in the State of Nevada, with 603,488 residents and a 352 square kilometre land footprint. It is a world famous city populated with high end hotels, resorts, casinos, strip clubs, bars and restaurants.

The city vies for the title of the Entertainment Capital of the World. The city also hosts major conventions for companies and industries across the country. The city is ranked at the top of the list for tourists around the world. McCarran International Airport is about 10 kilometres from the city, and the city is also home to The College of Southern Nevada.

Las Vegas has some of the best hotels such as the MGM Grand, Caesars Palace, the Mirage, the Luxor and the world famous Bellagio. Of a night the entire Las Vegas Strip is ablaze with tourists, some of them quite inebriated, buskers and locals. It is also ablaze with more neon lights than you can poke a stick at, and the highlight being the lit water fountains outside the Bellagio that fire jets of water hundreds of feet into the air.

Freemont East is revamped as an entertainment district comprising mainly of bars and clubs. The rapidly changing landscape of the city gives way to sky touching residential areas and sparkling amusement centres, it undoubtedly is the most amazing city.

Battlefield Vegas is the home to 350 plus types of machine guns from around the world. This museum chronicles the history of weapons from the First World War right up to recent Afghan conflicts. There are authentic US Humvees, helicopters and army trucks. The Bullets & Burgers Adventure is a private shooting range set in the Mohave Desert where you can try out your skills.
