Why the
Las Vegas Strip
Nightscape is special

The Las Vegas Strip in America becomes one of the most dazzling scenes on earth after the sun sets. Lights blaze. Energy quickens. Big rollers gamble. Top entertainers perform. All these take place along a 5 kilometer (3 mile) desert road lined with flashy hotel-casinos.

Las Vegas casinos
