Las Vegas, Navada
Birth Place of Las Vegas-the site of the natural springs where life first flourished in our dry desert climate.
Visitors to the 180-acre culture and historical attraction learn all about the city's rich heritage, its present condition and its future through state-of-the art exhibits, galleries, hiking trails, live animal shows and botanical gardens.
Floyd Lamb State Park-
this oasis of grass, ponds and cottonwood trees has been popular since prehistoric times. Home to Tule Springs Ranch, the springs were visited by mammals from the Pleistocene age. Fossils of extinct mammoths, bison, horses, camels, giant sloths and more have been found here.
The springs later served as a watering hole for prospectors and then in 1916 became home to a blacksmith shop. In the '20s it was self-supporting ranch and a retreat for prospective divorcees.
Stratosphere (roller coaster)-
Stratosphere Las Vegas is a tower, hotel, and casino located on Las Vegas Boulevard just north of the Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The property's signature attraction is the 1, 149 ft (350.2 m) Stratosphere Tower, the tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States, and the tallest in the Western Hemisphere, surprassed only by the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario.
