LAS VEGAS !

Las Vegas was colder than I expected maybe because I visited there towards the end of the year, The Strip is packed with Huge Casinos & hotels with thousands of rooms, lot of Asian tourist probably from China & Japan were around too. The Las Vegas would probably have every kind of entertainment available & more. The one thing I can say about Sin city is that, the Devil won't have to try too hard here :-)

The Road to Las Vegas , Nevada where Las vegas is located is a semi arid desert area with short grasses & brushes. It has an extreme climate of 52 celcisu to -46 degree celcius. Historically, the growth of Las vegas was helped by the opening of strip bars by the Mafia's which was visited by workers from nearby Hoover dam, once strip bars, alcohol consumption & gambling were legalized, a lot of the Mafia boss had set up their business in Las vegas.
