Las Vegas, the entertainment capital of the world, welcomes 35 million
people a year, and offers luxurious hotels, dazzling shows, first-rate
restaurants, and once again World of Concrete!
A vibrant international destination recognized around the world as a
center for a brilliant mix of business and fun, Las Vegas is in the
southern part of Nevada, about 50 miles east of the California border
and 30 miles west of the Arizona border. The city is divided into two
main parts: a compact downtown called Glitter Gulch, centered on the
intersection of Highway 95 and Interstate 15; and the Strip, a corridor
of hotels and casinos lining I-15 a few miles south of downtown.
casinos are divided between downtown's Glitter Gulch and the Strip;
most hotels are on or near the Strip. McCarran International Airport is
located at the southern end of the Strip, about 5 miles south of
downtown. Las Vegas, easily accessible by plane, bus and automobile, is
one of the world's favorite tourist destinations. Las Vegas has
something for everyone in your family. Whether it's the great outdoor
activities (swimming, tennis, golf), food, nightly activities (casinos,
revues, lounge acts, line dancing), you can find it all here. Some of
the world's greatest sites are within reach from Vegas -- from Hoover
Dam to the Grand Canyon.
