Nevada passed a strict anti-gambling law in 1910. However, betting only went underground until 1931 when the Nevada legislature passed into law a bill allowing it- with the caveat that it was to generate tax revenue to support public schools. There were also additional incentives of bootlegging, legal prostitution and a residency requirement for divorce of just 6 weeks which suddenly increased the town's popularity during the Roaring Twenties. The Strip was inaugurated in 1941, and after World War II came the big resort hotels, and with them big entertainment. As we soon found out, each mega resort vies with the next for the most opulent casino and big name entertainment. We easily found a place to park our car and from there started our walking tour of the Strip. The Paris hotel with its Eiffel Tower was one of our stops during our night out on the town. We took the elevator to the top. Many other people also had the same idea so it was a bit of a wait.
