Las Vegas (Sin City) culture

Las Vegas is sometimes called Sin City or simply Vegas. Las Vegas owes much of its fame to legalized gambling and huge casinos. Las vegas is also well known for adult entertainment and prostitution is legal in nearby counties (it is illegal in Las Vegas, Clark County, and the rest of the US).
