Las Vegas is the most populous city in Nevada, the seat of Clark County, and an
internationally renowned major resort city for gambling, shopping and fine dining. Las
Vegas, which bills itself as The Entertainment Capital of the World, is famous for the
number of casino resorts and associated entertainment. A growing retirement and family
city, it is the 28th most populous city in the United States with an estimated population by
the U.S. Census Bureau of 567,641 as of 2009. The 2009 population estimate of the Las Vegas
metropolitan area was 1,902,834.
Established in 1905, Las Vegas officially became a city in 1911. With the growth that
followed, at the close of the century Las Vegas was the most populous American city founded
in the 20th century (a distinction held by Chicago in the 19th century). The city's
tolerance for various forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and this
image has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films and television programs. There are
numerous outdoor lighting displays on Fremont Street, as well as elsewhere in the city.
The name Las Vegas is often applied to unincorporated areas that surround the city,
especially the resort areas on and near the Las Vegas Strip. The 4.2 mi (6.8 km) stretch of
Las Vegas Boulevard known as the Strip is mainly in the unincorporated communities of
Paradise and Winchester, while a small portion overlaps into Las Vegas and the
unincorporated community of Enterprise.
