Las Vegas: Famous Worldwide and Getting More So!

Monday, August 15th, 2005

Last year, Las Vegas hosted more than 1.56 million overseas travelers, a 20.6 percent increase over 2003, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Office of Travel and Tourism Industries. What do these numbers actually mean? It means that we are incredibly popular compared to other US cities as a foreign tourist destination. In fact, Las Vegas ranked #7 in the entire country! Yup, NYC took top honors and Los Angeles was number two for reasons I’ll never understand. But hey, we’ll take the #7 spot and the cities still ahead of us better watch out! Luring more overseas travelers here is key to the LVCVA’s stated goal of drawing 43 million visitors to Las Vegas by 2009. That year, it hopes nearly 6.5 million international travelers will visit the city annually, up from last year’s estimated 4.5 million. Also on the rise is overseas interest in Las Vegas homes as an investment and/or vacation property.

Total employment in Clark County grew 7.7 percent in June to 873,400 and the unemployment rate was 4.1 percent, compared with 4.7 percent a year ago.

Las Vegas Monorail: No Way, Good News?

Monday, August 15th, 2005

The Las Vegas Monorail had a record breaking month in July! The monorail carried 1,020,796 people last month, for an average of 32,928 riders per day. July was also the monorail’s second-best revenue month ever. Farebox receipts last month totaled $2,945,701, for a daily average of $95,022. Don’t get too excited though…this thing cost $650 million and is still nowhere near covering it’s overhead. Maybe an extension to the airport would help, who knows? One thing is for sure, reliability is a key component to this puzzle. If the monorail starts working consistently and reliably, it can only help things. MS Las Vegas Real Estate would like to see the project succeed financially as well as mechanically, but we’re just not sure on either score.
