Downtown Las Vegas is situated at the center of an extraordinary retail trade area that boasts the 10 largest hotels in the nation, 14 of the 15 largest in the country, 11 of the 13 largest in the world, a trade area that draws 34 million visitors spending $29 billion dollars annually.

Tourist spending is growing at the rapid rate of 11% per year and, contrary to popular belief, the casinos aren't getting all of the proceeds. Non-gaming tourism generated $22.5 billion in 1999 - more than the tourism revenue generated by New York City and San Francisco combined.
