Las Vegas is the largest city in the state of Nevada, in the United States. It is one of the main tourist destinations of the country thanks to its commercial and holiday areas, but above all thanks to its casinos. Because of this it is known as «The Capital of World Entertainment», «The City of Sin» or «The Capital of Second Opportunities».
Las Vegas is sometimes known as the City of Sin, due to the popularity of gambling and legal gambling, the availability of alcoholic beverages at any time of day (as in all of Nevada), the legality of prostitution in neighboring counties (the Nevada laws prohibit prostitution in counties with more than 400,000 inhabitants). The local government and the tourism promoters of the city use the phrase of what happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas.
