For decades, Las Vegas has been considered a city where gamblers went on vacation. But after being hit hard in the economic downturn in 2008, the city has reinvented itself and entertainment is at the heart of Las Vegas’ second act.
Since 2008, Las Vegas has witnessed a two-fold jump in the number of visitors for hotels, restaurants and casinos. A good number of those visitors are drawn to the new attractions on and off the strip. At the big casinos on the strip, the classic buffets are being deemphisized in favor of nightclubs where bottle service can cost $10,000 and up. Off the strip, you’ll find attractions that appeal to the big kid inside–racing classic cars, operating bulldozers, and even a museum of all the giant neon signs of the Vegas of earlier days.
