The Vegas Strip is at the very heart of Clark County and attracts 30+ million visitors a year. This city is known for entertainment, nightlife, adventure, tours, gambling, shopping, delicious food, and more.


Some of the very first modern day settlers of the Las Vegas area, were those same pioneers who settled the state of Utah. Las Vegas was more formally founded in 1905 and was incorporated in 1911. It was in 1931 when the Hoover Dam construction began and all the young male workers settled in that real growth began. Many of the theaters and casinos were built for the young workers by the Mafia. It was in 1966 when Vegas took a more family friendly, luxury vacation direction by the influence of Howard Hughes who was the richest person in America at the time.
