    Good information

    Highly informative! First section is an interesting summary of the history of the town, including the pre-recession building boom. Lot of good advice and information about selecting a hotel. (For example, I was not aware of the resort fees larger hotels charge, and that the larger places are a quarter mile apart, and that traffic on the strip is horrific.) Deducted one star because the maps and charts are pretty much unreadable on a black & white Nook.
