Vegas has a nice history. Nevada was the last state to outlaw gambling in 1910, however the Hoover Dam construction (about 30 miles away) started in 1920, during the depression. That brought a large number of single men into the area, from all over the place, they were making decent money and had money and no place to spend it. With a large diversified population and money to spare, creating a large Vegas entertainment industry came naturally. In 1931, the city decided to legalize gambling.
