What Bert Has To Say About Las Vegas-Henderson-Paradise Metro Area

The unique and booming desert metropolis of Las Vegas continues to be a curiosity among today’s U.S. cities. Las Vegas is known for its famous “Strip”, an adult Disneyland attracting visitors worldwide to its gaudy hotel-casino reproductions of famous world places, like King Tut’s tomb or downtown New York or Paris. In fact, most of these “strip” sites are second generation, with older hotels being torn down and replaced with new fantasies apparently purposed as much to outdo each other as to entertain visitors.
