Las Vegas over the last couple of years had become just a plane ride away for people seeking the fun, great food, and entertainment the Las Vegas Strips offers. That all changed 6 months ago.
              Today it’s a road trip for people seeking something closer to home.     Las Vegas is rolling back to the old days where it’s all about gambling.   You don’t have your nightclubs, you don’t have your sports, you don’t have your concerts.”
              Strip resorts face a unique challenge in attracting visitors without those amenities or significant air travel.
              Resorts must both offer something other than a closer gambling destinations.
              Conventions, group and air travel disappeared mid-March, when Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered all nonessential businesses in the state to close in a bid to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. Despite most casinos reopening June 4 or since, business has been anything but usual. According to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, visitor volume in July was down 61 percent compared with the same period last year.
              It will be interesting to watch as Las Vegas struggles to make it back to 2019 tourist volume.
