I wonder how many different varieties though.

The city of Las Vegas was named by a Spanish exploration party in 1820. There are natural underground springs in the valley, making an oasis in the desert. Las Vegas is translated as: 'the meadows'. The native Americans knew about the springs for centuries, now the Europeans had Las Vegas on their maps.

There will soon be more facts in this forum about Las Vegas, than in books containing facts about Las Vegas.
What a bargain.

Leo,
It seems we are the only ones regularly contributing to 'fact of the day'. I am going to accept your above comment as high praise. You find interesting facts from around the world and I am stuck with only Las Vegas related facts. Seems like an unfair battle, but I will soldier on if you do.

OK, found a disturbing one about Vegas......well, maybe not disturbing or even true, but interesting....

Average number of pillowcases washed daily at MGM Grand: 15,000

You don't think people staying at the MGM Grand are having sex, do you? But at least the pillowcases are clean!!!

Kris, With 5,000 rooms, average 4 pillowcases per room, 15,000 average is right.
