Las Vegas is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Nevada and the county seat of Clark County. Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city known primarily for gambling, shopping, fine dining, and nightlife and is the leading financial and cultural center for Southern Nevada. The city bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its consolidated casino–hotels and associated entertainment. A growing retirement and family city, Las Vegas is the 31st-most populous city in the United States, with a population at the 2010 census of 583,756. The 2010 population of the Las Vegas metropolitan area was 1,951,269. Today, Las Vegas is one of the top tourist destinations in the world.

Established in 1905, Las Vegas was incorporated as a city in 1911. At the close of the 20th century, Las Vegas was the most populous American city founded in that century (a distinction held by Chicago in the 19th century). The city's tolerance for various forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and this image has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films and television programs. There are numerous outdoor lighting displays on Fremont Street, as well as elsewhere in the city.

Las Vegas often refers to the city plus some areas beyond the city limits, especially the resort areas on and near the Las Vegas Strip, and sometimes the entire Las Vegas Valley. The 4.2 mi (6.8 km) stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard known as the Strip is mainly in the unincorporated communities of Paradise, Winchester, and Enterprise.

Bureau FileEdit

In spite of everything you might think Las Vegas is, for us, a quiet place. The lack of ancient history, the very shallowness of the whole city acts to our advantage. It is a great place to vacation, take the kids.

The only Bureau note is that Las Vegas is the place the Alabama ape woman was settled with her handler.

Local MagicEdit

The main point of magic in Las Vegas is the Lake Mead Tap. The object fitted into a concrete footing in an island in the Nevada side. The high pressure steam of water is two meters across and rises in an arc several hundred feet in the air. Anyone stupid enough to bypass the security and mess with the thing would get ripped apart by the water pressure.

Several smaller versions of the Lake Mead Tap are located in the Las Vegas Department of Water and Sewage. The water crisis is over.

We are told the taps pull water from the abyssal deep a mile down in the Pacific Ocean. Only freshwater comes through.
