Less than a ten years ago, Las Vegas was strictly a 24 hour adult gambling town, with budget rooms, cheap buffets, lounge acts and 99 cent shrimp cocktails. Remnants of old “Las Vegas” are there you can still gamble and eat at all hours of the day and night. But other forms of amusement have flourished in this desert: an erupting volcano, a pirate ship battle, roller coasters and theme parks. The Entertainment Capital of the World now offers something for both young and old. To attract not only gamblers but everyone to their casino resorts, developers have imploded hotel after hotel, obliterating Las Vegas’ short history to make way for newer, bolder and more lavish creations. A few years ago New York's skyline was replicated in smaller scale. One of the latest offering is The Venetian, which reproduces landmarks of Venice to actual scale, complete with outdoor canals. Other resorts scheduled to open in 1998-1999 are the Bellagio, Mandalay Bay and Paris, each one bidding for vacationers in search of the ultimate Vegas spectacle.
