Walkable, urban, and most populous city in Nevada.
Las Vegas, the largest city in the greater Mojave Desert, serves as the focal point of the Las Vegas Valley metropolitan area. Gaming, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife are the main attractions of the large resort town of Las Vegas, which enjoys international recognition. Nevada's leading financial, commercial, and cultural center is the Las Vegas Valley.
Also, the local history of Las Vegas entails the presence of several major resort hotels, including the Bellagio, MGM Grand, Luxor Las Vegas, Wynn Las Vegas, and others. The city traces its roots to a spring-fed meadow adjacent to the downtown area. Americans gave the site the name "Las Vegas" because it was green and lush with grass in the desert. However, over time, the term has become synonymous with gaming, nightlife, and entertainment. Downtown Las Vegas is the original gaming district of Las Vegas, and Fremont Street Experience is its centerpiece.
