I am writing this post as I am visiting Las Vegas, AKA sin city, on vacation. This is not my first time in the city and it seems to grow bigger with each visit. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s website, over 650,000 people live in Las Vegas, making it one of the top 25 most populated cities in the USA. But as anyone who has been here knows, there are many thousands of tourists that are visiting every day. According to the Nevada state website, over 40 million people are on track to visit Vegas in 2023. Vegas is a very busy and bustling city indeed.
