One wouldn't say so, but the hotels are pretty tall - unfortunately also very wide... Buildings are very over the top. 7/10 because this skyline is one of a kind.

I love how people who've never been to Vegas say it's nothing but a casino city or that it isn't a 'real city'

try visiting it and seeing it for yourself in person

it's one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and there is far more to it than just gambling

i have had a great time whenever ive been and i can't wait to go back

Yes!

In all fairness Las Vegas is one of the most fun cities in the world. It is an example of why huge skylines tell half the story, or 1/4 the story about the heart of a city. I for one dont think we should judge a city by its skyline. Some of the comments about Las Vegas seem a bit personal and cruel.

Most seem jealous of Las Vegas and are making comments about the city and not the skyline. Being fair I give Las Vegas a 6.5 but, look out in 7-15 years Las Vegas will be one of the largest cities in the U.S if the growth its having continues. We all are adults so we all know Las Vegas was mostly a tourist town.

Its just starting to go after other growth and once it fully goes into finanial and tourist growth combined, the skyscrapers will rival most larger American cities. I visited Las Vegas and let me tell you, there are cities with bigger skylines in the U.S but, there nowhere as fun as Las Vegas.

Lets be fair an adult when judging each others cities. Theres no need for rude and cruel statements!


GOD IS GOOD!

In a way, it's not a city because the strip is not even in the city limits.

The Stratosphere Tower is the tallest structure west of the Mississippi River.

Of the 20 largest hotels in the world (all in the U.S.), 17 are in Las Vegas, including the 8 biggest. More hotel rooms than any other city on planet Earth, with a 98% occupancy rate all year long. Completely sold out on busy days and there is demand for much, much more.

As land becomes more and more expensive on the strip, they will have to build upward on smaller footprints, which is what the new condo developments are doing. Before the Turnberry project, there was only one tall condo tower in the entire valley. The highrise condo market is just now starting and is set to explode.
