There is no question that the economy has taken its toll on the country. There are people who are out of a job, and many more who are in their jobs but are working paycheck to paycheck. It’s a tough road to go but and there are many businesses that are being hurt by the downturn in their American economy. One of those places that has been hurt the most is the city of Las Vegas.
Vegas has long been the popular destination of tourists and vacationers alike. There is an endless strip with gambling, shows, great food and a one of a kind atmosphere that rivals all others. However, these days Vegas feels more like a ghost town in comparison to the booming tourist destination it was in the early part of the decade. There are many in Vegas who are scratching their heads trying to figure out why.
The real problem with Vegas is that it’s one of the few tourists towns that don’t have a lot to do unless you are going to spend money. While tourists can spend time walking the strip and admiring the architecture, the biggest and most relevant things to do in Vegas require money. For that reason Las Vegas has pulled out all the stops to try and increase tourism as well as drop the prices to stay there.
Tourism in the city of sin will only get better if the economy rebounds. There is no way to know when it will so the people of Vegas must wait and hope.
