Founded in the early 20th century, the city of Las Vegas is known for its drive-through weddings, big casinos, and dazzling shows. The famed Strip, which is home to all of the action, including the MGM Grand, Caesars Palace, and Wynn Las Vegas, actually isn’t even in Las Vegas. This 4.2-mile road is technically in the neighboring town of Paradise and remains the brightest spot on Earth when viewed from space. With over 150,000 hotels in Las Vegas, it would take you almost 300 years to sleep in every room for just one night. There are also over 3,000 blackjack tables in Vegas and an estimated one slot machine per resident.
