When you come to Las Vegas, you don’t come here and do ordinary. You don’t do cautious and careful. No. When you come to Las Vegas, you do it up big, bold, and different.

Well, at least you used to. When Vegas was filled with entrepreneurs and people with creativity and a passion to build something people would want to visit. It’s not that way anymore.

So in that respect, maybe this is a list of the ten biggest resorts in Las Vegas as much as it is a tip of the hat to the age when Vegas was a wonderfully magical place to visit.
