Las Vegas Strip

Tourists are spending more money in Las Vegas, but not on gambling.

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.
