Is Las Vegas Really “Sin City”?


Does Las Vegas earn the label “Sin City”? The city itself markets itself this way. But, is it really an evil place?

There are a lot of misconceptions about Las Vegas partly because it does promote itself as “Sin City.” No doubt, Vegas has its seedy side.

There are many topless shows, the brothels, and an open prostitution trade, although it is illegal in Clark County. Sin is more obvious there for sure, but you can partake of these sins anywhere, if that is your heart and desire.

However, Las Vegas also offers a large array of other family oriented attractions, sites, and activities to enjoy. For example, there are many museums such as the Mob Museum, the Neon Museum, the Atomic Testing Museum, Area 51 Museum, Natural History Museum, Spring Preserves, and multiple art museums and displays.

There are historic places to visit like Spring Mountain Ranch, Bonnie Springs Ranch, Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire, and Hoover Dam. There are even a few ghost towns around the area if that is your thing to do. Then, of course, there are the incredible shows, restaurants, lights, and unbelievable architecture.

The spectrum of food offerings is countless and the shows are known around the world. Then, on the spiritual side of things, there are more churches per capita then in most cities in the US. Vegas even offers a good offering of thrill rides for both adults and children.
