Las Vegas is known as The Entertainment Capital of the World, and for good reason! Casinos, entertainment shows, and stores line the streets wherever you look. Whether you’re catching a magic show or trying to win big at the slot machines, there’s always something to do in Las Vegas. Of course, there’s more to the city than gambling and the nightlife. The city’s Arts District contains murals and local, indie art galleries, and you can easily spend a day or two exploring the multiple museums or playing golf. Ready to move to Las Vegas?
