I’m absolutely 120% sure all of you have seen at least some pics or videos of one of the greatest cities in America or even the world – Las Vegas, Nevada. Now, I’ve never been to the desert metropolis, but I hear it’s a real paradise full of 24-7 gambling shacks, striptease, or should I say “showgirl” lounges, and, of course, casinos without clocks. But it wasn’t always this neon oasis we know and love today. Just over a hundred years ago Las Vegas was nowhere to be seen, instead, there was sand, and sand, and more sand, and maybe some cacti. After all it’s called Mojave desert for a reason, right?

 

So, now let’s take a look at how it all started, and follow the development of Las Vegas’ two biggest streets: the Stripe, and Fremont Street.

 

 

1. 1905 Fremont Street – When the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad were created in 1905, the small settlement quickly became known as Sin City.
