Many visitors never venture more than a few hundred feet/meters away from the Strip, the 4.2-mi-/6.75-km-long stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard that's lined on both sides with casino-hotels. Because so much is concentrated on one street, it's easier to understand the layout of the city if you break the Strip into sections.   Click here to see the full Las Vegas travel guide on Travel42 »

Although nomadic native tribes inhabited the Las Vegas area for thousands of years, the place didn't get its name until a young Spanish scout, Rafael Rivera, discovered the grassy valley with its water supply, naming it "Las Vegas," which means the meadows in Spanish. The building of a fort by Mormon missionaries and the discovery of precious metals in the 1800s led to more interest. Just after the turn of the 20th century, Las Vegas became established as a small railroad town on the line connecting Salt Lake City and Los Angeles.   Click here to see the full Las Vegas travel guide on Travel42 »
