Where better to begin than the birthplace of Las Vegas? The Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort State Park preserves the site where a spring-fed creek created an oasis for Native Americans, traders and Mormon settlers. Peek into the area’s prehistoric past next door at the Natural History Museum. In a city built by gamblers and gangsters, The Mob Museum is a must-see.
