Bambi is deeply saddened. All that college tuition money wasted...
Was that before the tourism bureau came out with ads making fun of straight people?
Many of those “new visitors” are over-taxed Californians changing their residency to tax free Nevada. The bonus is they are going to vote you’re arse out of the Senate when you come up for reelection!
A lot of people have found out LV is a great place to fly into and out of for anywhere in the area.
Flights are cheap and car rentals are very good.
When we go back west we fly boston to vegas, spend first night in a very ood room downtown (about 40 bucks) big breakfast, and hit the trader joe’s and whole foods, and hit the road.
5 hours to the grand canyon (my old home). about 8 hours to salt lake. There’s also tons of good golf in places like mesquite and cedar city.
We come back to vegas, get a room to nap in before catching a red-eye back.
I’d like to see the actual data on that because I live here and I don’t believe that statement. We’ve had record foreclosures and unemployment here. My husband and I have repeatedly marveled at how “dead” the walkways on The Strip have been, how lacking the crowds are. I can only guess he must be including people passing though on the interstate system or flying over as “visitors.”
I heard on the radio this AM that gaming revenues were down over a billion dollars compared to 2011.
There may have been more visitors but I doubt the revenues reflect the census increase.
Well they never have to worry about my attendance ever again. I remember when my parents would occasionally go to see a show, that was back in the day when they had real entertainers and the ticket price was held down. My wife stopped going when the shows we might want to see stopped being booked and ticket prices skyrocketed. The kicker was seeing Penn and Tellers crappy show denigrating God And Country and having a bunch of wetbacks shoving pornographic ads and coupons for hookers/massage parlors in our faces! Vegas has nothing I need, If I really ever wanted to gamble I could just throw the cash back at the Indians here in California.
