How to Make Your Cheap Holidays to Las Vegas Memorable

Apr 15th 2019 at 5:20 AM

Called simply as 'Vegas' by many, Las Vegas is the largest city within the Mojave Desert located in the state of Nevada. Over the years, it has achieved worldwide fame as an attractive entertainment, shopping, gambling, and nightlife destination. This has also led to the city being nicknamed as the 'Entertainment Capital of the World'. Besides being an entertainment hotspot, the city is also the leading commercial and cultural centre of Nevada. In recent times, Las Vegas is ranked among the most-visited tourist destinations in the world.

Your cheap holidays to Las Vegas would allow you to explore its interesting history as you visit some of its historic places. The earliest visitors to this part of the world were the nomadic tribes who travelled to this region about 10,000 years ago. Rafael Rivera, a young Mexican scout, was the first non-native to set foot in the valley. This happened during the year, 1829. Later, people from Spain arrived in this region of the USA and named it 'Las Vegas', which means 'The Meadows' in Spanish. John C Fremont arrived in the city during 1844 and encouraged the pioneers to visit the region. Fremont Street has been named after him.

Many of the structures that you witness during your Las Vegas holidays date back to the early 20th century. This was the time when the area was incorporated as a city and casino gambling was legalised. The construction of the famous Hoover Dam began in the year 1931. The city was saved from the Great Depression owing to the employment that the construction work generated. A large number of workers and their families settled in this part of the United States. After the Second World War, some lavish hotels and gambling centres were established in the city. Moulin Rouge became the first racially integrated casino-hotel when it opened in the city during the mid-20th century.

The Fremont Street Experience that you get to witness during your Las Vegas holidays was opened in the year 1995. Featuring over 12 million LED lights, this canopied area also plays the sound of more than 500,000 watts from dusk until midnight when the entertaining outdoor shows are held. Some massive revitalisation works were completed in the year 2012, which later came to be known as 'The Year of Downtown'. Projects worth millions of dollars added a new charm to this city. Some of these projects included the Mob Museum, Smith Center for the Performing Arts, Neon Museum, and Discovery Children's Museum.

Summers are long and hot in Las Vegas. As a result, the city has about 310 sunny days and bright sunshine during most of the daylight hours. The climate during winters ranges from mild to chilly. Summer months from June to September are extremely hot with very low humidity. The city has an abundance of sunshine even in the winter season. December is the coolest and cloudiest of all months in Las Vegas. Evenings during the winter season are characterised by clear skies and a considerable drop in temperatures after sunset.
