Las Vegas Quick Guide
Las Vegas is more than sparkling hotels and sprawling casinos. In fact, Las Vegas real estate has been in such demand for those looking to settle here that visitors to Sin City often forget that this desert oasis is home to many.
In addition to gambling at world-famous casinos like the Mirage, Excalibur and the Venetian, visitors will want to spend time at the city's art museum, as well as take advantage of the many shopping, eating and entertainment venues that the Vegas Strip and other areas of the city have to offer. Las Vegas City Hall is located at 400 Stewart Ave., and is open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Many city departments and services are available here, as well as information on how to contact other agencies that operate outside of the city government.
