History Classes Are Boring
Let’s be honest. History class was not a school favorite. Sure, there were some that loved it but if you are like me, you sat there wondering if there was a more exciting way for the information to be presented. For those who grew up living in Las Vegas they got to see the city change with the times. For those who lived out of state, they may have had a little bit of local history, but a lot of it is American history. What people may not realize is that in addition to the importance of the major events in American history there have been certain towns that defined the regions they are located in. For the Southwestern United States one of those towns was Las Vegas.
From Sand and Rocks to Gambling and Hotels
I don’t want to sit here and go on and on about how the town started as a settlement for travelers and eventually turned into a fairly decent watering hole for those going further west to mine for gold. Then of course there was the expansion and the eventual construction of the first hotel and casino. The legalization of gambling led to vacationers eventually making it a hot spot. Eventually there was a growth in the towns size thanks to a hefty contribution from some…. “businessmen” in the area. But enough about all that. You probably know Vegas as the mega-resort, entertainment, magic and overall party capital of the world. What gets most people is just how Vegas went from this quiet desert town, to a city that never sleeps. Rather than sit through a boring presentation or some type of class that you have to take a test on, there is one show, among all of the ones that dot the famous Las Vegas Strip, that will give you a look into that history but do it in a way that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Welcome to, VEGAS! the Show.
