Places To Check Out While in Las Vegas
It is easy to see why the”Welcome to Las Vegas” sign is considered among the most popular city attractions. This sign, which had been seen along Las Vegas Boulevard since 1959, comes after Mandalay Bay as well as the Little Church of the West at the southern tip of the Strip. This must-see sign, which is a great spot to take a selfie, was designed by Betty Willis, a late local artist.
Las Vegas became well-known because of the Strip nevertheless; the city was able to sustain itself because of Hoover Dam. This engineering wonder was built during the Great Depression when tens of thousands of employees badly needed employment. The dam and the power plant can be seen via several tours at various prices. The dam isn’t only visually striking but also very functional because it provides power to Arizona, California and Nevada through its arched construction.
