You usually would not expect a seventeen year old to say that they love vacationing to Las Vegas, but in my case I absolutely love it. There are so many fun activities to do I just can not get enough.
Do you know what is in the air we are breathing every day of our lives? The water we drink? What causes us to feel different about the environment we call home? Many different cities, states and countries have different forms of pollution but here in Las Vegas, Nevada, we have almost all of the possible forms of pollution the environment could possibly have. Two of the seven types of pollution that Las Vegas has are land pollution and air pollution. None of these are good for neither our environment’s health nor our own health. Different examples of these types of pollution in Las Vegas are driving a car, smoking cigarettes and all of the construction that has been happening within the past year.
In population Nevada is one of the smallest states of the fifty states in the Union, but it invites and receives more intense national publicity than many others. “It is a testing ground for unorthodox social theories and an outpost of solid American conservatism” (313). Because the state is so large and its centers of population is so widely scattered, no single generalization about it will suffice for a historical summary. Nevada, with its 110,000 square miles, would cover more than half of Spain. Nevada is not the largest state in the Union, but it is big enough to inspire awe in its visitors” (2).
Las Vegas is such a great place to live because of the superb weather. Las Vegas has a typical desert climate, with hot summers, mild winters, year long sunshine and very little rainfall. Some may complain that it is too hot to live in Las Vegas over the summer. The high temperatures in the months of July and August normally exceed one hundred degrees, but as my Las Vegas local Daniel Rogalski can tell you, it's really not that bad: "Las Vegas is hot over the summer, but it's not that bad. We have very little humidity and I would much rather be in Las Vegas when it is one hundred and five degrees than be in Florida with high humidity when it is
Las Vegas is one of the nation's favorite vacation destinations. Las Vegas, in Nevada’s Mojave Desert, is a resort town famed for its buzzing energy. It's a 24-hour city where gambling is a loved past-time and dreams of striking it rich can come true. Its focal point is the Strip, just over 4 miles long and lined with elaborate theme hotels such as the pyramid-shaped Luxor and the Venetian, complete with Grand Canal; luxury resorts including the Bellagio, set behind iconic dancing fountains; and innumerable casinos.
Unlike many other states Nevada’s statehood is very much connected to the Civil war and is not just a gambling town. Nevada was the second of only two states to be added to the Union during the Civil War. Some people from Nevada or that know a lot about Nevada may call it by one if its three most common nicknames such as, Battle-Born State, Sagebrush State, and Silver State. Nevada got its name from a group of Spaniards who called it Nevada which translated to English means snowy, because of how the mountains were always covered in snow during the winter. Today Nevada is part of the United States, which has not always been the case, Nevada became part of Mexico in 1821, and was not in possession of America until the Mexican-American War in 1848.When Nevada was finally taken by the United States, it became part of the Utah territory and was no longer called Nevada, until silver was discovered in the Comstock Lode in 1859 which led to a population boom, which led to Nevada becoming its own territory, but it still hadn’t made its way to statehood yet.

Virginia City was one of the first cities in Nevada, and it was-established in 1859. Frontiers men discovered silver in Virginia City opening up the area to lots of mining. Virgina City was-considered a mining boom town, which means it sprang up over night. From 1862-1863 the population went from four thousand to fifteen thousand. By 1873 they had twenty-five thousand people live there, and it was-considered the richest city in America! By 1879 the mining business was running out and the population went below eleven thousand. The current population is 855, according to the 2010 senses. It isn't populated at all, It is pretty empty. It is now considered a tourist attraction. I live in Clark County, and the name of our seven commissioners are:
Throughout history Nevada has been an outstanding state giving it residents the best it has to offer, as it still does today in the 1850’s it was no exception.
The term, Aloha Spirit, is the attitude Hawaii is famous for. This is a way of describing the overall kindness and friendly acceptance that residents portray. When looking at a 2006 crime rate chart comparing both Honolulu and Las Vegas, Las Vegas exceeds Hawaii in all categories. The following numbers are actual examples: murder, 17 to 152; robbery, 956 to 5,381; aggravated assault, 1583 to 6680; and vehicle theft, 6288 to 19677. According to cityrating.com, when looking at a population of one million in the cities of Las Vegas, Nevada and the Honolulu, Hawaii, both violent and property crime rate percentages in the city of Las Vegas are not only greater than Honolulu, but above the national crime rate average as well. This suggests that the association that the city of Las Vegas has with gambling may contribute to the increase of crime. Bringing the slots to our neighborhood means bringing all the cons that come with it, thus destroying the Aloha Spirit.

Vegas is located in the Nevada desert, the closest large city to Vegas, outside of Nevada, is San Bernardino, CA, which is about 187 miles away. For this reason people who visit Vegas rent rooms in hotels. This is an integral part
Is Las Vegas’ history “conventional,” like most other American cities? One might be tempted to dismiss that idea out of hand, however, a closer look at Las Vegas’ history may surprise the sceptic. Las Vegas’ beginnings was fairly conventional from it’s earliest infancy. Its start as a missionary outpost, to frontier ranch, to a railroad town was rather typical of the discovery and development of a new frontier town. The unsavory social faux pas of drinking, gambling, and prostitution was commonplace in railroad towns (and cities) throughout the country. As expected, Las Vegas too felt the effects of the Great Depression and benefited from Public Works Projects from the federal government--as did many of the cities and towns throughout the country--through the building of the Hoover Dam and
