Thanksgiving Weekend: Another Huge Success for Las Vegas!

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

Las Vegas, Nevada was the second most popular Thanksgiving travel destination on this year, moving up strongly from a sixth place finish two years ago. Can you imagine how many turkeys were prepared in all the Strip restaurants and buffets? It must have been some kind of record number! Why did people choose Las Vegas for Thanksgiving in such overwhelming numbers? Without question, it’s the draw of an all-inclusive resort vacation experience that simply cannot be duplicated anywhere else. After all, we’re not referred to as the “Entertainment Capital of the World” for no reason. Thanksgiving dinners were served to groups large and small throughout the afternoon and evening last Thursday, followed by highly enthusiastic partying that proceeded straight through the weekend. McCarran International Airport (the sixth busiest in the entire country) handled the massive traffic flow like a champ. The Michelle Sterling Las Vegas Real Estate Team was actually busy showing property all weekend. The deals on brand new Las Vegas homes are just incredible right now….and we’re all over it!
