Tourism in Las Vegas

The Las Vegas and Southern Nevada economy is based on tourism. While there have been many attempts to diversify the local economy, tourism remains as the primary employer. There are advantages and disadvantages to have an economy based on visitors. Las Vegas can be affected by things high gas prices and terrorist acts. While McCarran International Airport has become one of the busiest in the world, the majority of visitors to Southern Nevada still drive in from California. This means that if gas prices soar, Las Vegas is affected. For many months after the 9/11 tragedy in 2001, the hotels in Las Vegas saw a greatly reduced visitor volume. However, there have been many when the economic base of Las Vegas has been threatened and each time the city has come back stronger than before.
