From humble farming beginnings, Las Vegas has evolved into an economic powerhouse, producing output which often surpasses entire countries. An unstoppable force in today’s modern economy, Las Vegas draws millions of tourists annually.
Beyond Las Vegas’ glittery hotels, casinos, and resorts lie an otherwise ordinary Western city with neighborhoods, churches, and shopping centres that contribute to its robust local economy. Las Vegas’ unconventional economic base has brought prosperity but also created problems like increased crime rates, suicide attempts, alcohol consumption rates exceeding state requirements, illegal drug usage rates exceeding legal thresholds, smog issues.
Las Vegas was first settled by Mormon forts built as temporary lodgings for Mormon travelers traveling between Nevada and Utah. One such structure, Old Mormon Fort State Historic Park, can still be found just one mile from Fremont Street — Las Vegas’ oldest district.
Soon enough, Las Vegas quickly developed an ambitious new vision and started creating casinos not just to attract gamblers but as complete destinations with pools, spas and top restaurants. Inspired by this lavish decor and amenities of these resorts, architects crafted postmodern designs reminiscent of their lavish decor and amenities – thus sparking postmodern architecture as an artistic movement.
Today, Las Vegas continues its meteoric ascent into the skyline, boasting glittering casinos and resorts which serve as destinations–if not worlds–in their own right. Step inside any one of the dozens of palatial hotel casinos or mega resorts and you will be astounded at their attention to detail – decor that makes you feel as if you’re somewhere else; unforgettable amenities; first-class dining; indulgent spa services; pool parties and award-winning live shows are just some of the details you will encounter inside these buildings!
