Las Vegas visitors spend more money, a new report commissioned by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority suggests.
The LVCVA reports a record number of visitors – 41 million came to the city last year. The agency estimated, on average, those visitors spent $723 each, which shows a $33 jump compared to 2013. Visitors continue to spend less on gambling, while entertainment, rooms and restaurants are the main draws.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
