Why Vegas is popular with Celebs

The Entertainment Capital of the World, as Las Vegas likes to be called, is an internationally renowned resort city in Nevada. Famous for its casinos, shows, shopping, clubs, food and bright lights, it is one of the most visited tourist destinations on the planet.

However, it’s not just tourists who flock to Vegas with the city a haven for top celebrities, including Floyd Mayweather Jr., Celine Dion, Mike Tyson, Coolio and Nicholas Cage. Many of them live in the multi-million-dollar mansions outside the city, or stay in one of the numerous luxury hotels and apartments on the strip.

One of the reasons it’s popular with A-list stars, is because many of them are performing in the city doing shows, shooting movies or making music. But it’s not just work that brings them to Vegas, they also come to party.
