Written by Tiffany Milligan – A Vegas Local

Las Vegas fun facts are nothing more than…fun! Did you lose the last trivia event at you your local bar? Maybe you need to brush up on some not-so-important facts so that won’t happen again! Here are TEN Vegas fun facts that you could probably live without ;)

1 – When Howard Hughes stayed at the Desert Inn for so long that he was asked to leave, he bought the hotel. Problem solved.
2 – Want to drive a bulldozer or backhoe? Las Vegas has a Heavy Equipment Playground where you can do that!
3 - There is an intricate tunnel system meant for drainage, running under Las Vegas, where thousands of homeless have set up home. No really. They’ve dragged beds, bookcases, rugs, and d├ęcor down there and set up apartment type living!
4 - Sammy Davis Jr. took a dip in the pool at the New Frontier in 1952. This whites-only pool was drained when he was finished because, well, Sammy wasn’t white.
5 – The Harmon Hotel is being demolished. It’s beautiful, new and COMPLETELY deemed architecturally unsafe. Nobody will be staying there!

9 – Over 75% of the world’s top 25 largest hotels are located in Las Vegas.
10 – A 1910 law made it illegal to gamble in Las Vegas. Apparently the law didn’t stick ;)
11 – (Bonus Las Vegas fun fact) VegasDaze has the best staff in town where you can plan all of your Vegas activities and have a good time doing so. Yes, that was a shameless plug.
