Hotels, Casinos and Sights: With many square meters of casino space and their sights like the "Bellagio Fountains" or "The channels of the Venetian" most Las Vegas hotels combine these three all in one. Many modern hotels have an individual theme which the whole building shows. Almost every hotel is located along "The Strip", the biggest avenue of Las Vegas. And if you are bored of all these impressive hotels you can take a picture with the "Welcome to fabolous Las Vegas" sign or even go further away and visit Grand Canyon, Death Valley or the Spring Montains. Water supply and problems: Las Vegas and 20 million other people in southwestern US get their water from Lake Mead, a part of Colorado River near Las Vegas.
