Ghosts, Gangsters, and Gamblers of Las Vegas


Las Vegas is a city with a rich history and colorful past, complete with famous skeletons in her closets and numerous ghosts making their presences known around town. From the orbs that show up in photos taken in the Luxor's lobby to the ghosts of two murdered children that roam Green Valley Park, there is a dark side of the city that lurks behind the famous marquee signs and jackpots. 

Wander the gardens of Bugsy Siegel's old stomping grounds, eat at the restaurant Liberace once owned and seems to still frequent today, or stare up at the top of the Stratosphere and try to imagine how anyone could ever jump. Enjoy this handy guide as you explore the city -- a city where the odds are good that a spirited lady luck will lure you back again and again.
