The State of Nevada is a hub for the Resort-Gaming, Hospitality, and an Entertainment Industry that caters to individuals, families, and business people from around the world. As such, it is a leading convention and vacation mecca, with a growing retirement community.
Oasis In the West
In singer and actor Dean Martin's last years, he talked often and fondly of his days as a blackjack dealer in Las Vegas. it seemed the most precious part of his personal history. The Greater Las Vegas Area is that in which most of Nevada's largest employers are located today. Suburbs of Vegas in Clark County are growing quickly and are becoming the fastest growing spots in the state.
I enjoy Nevada for it's climate and history, as well as for its tourist attractions and grand hotel-casinos. People are extremely friendly and customer service is a priority everywhere, Attending conferences in Las Vegas has always been a lot of fun and I have met personalities at writer's and poets conventions in Vegas, like Milton Berle, Red Skelton, and Senator Eugene McCarthy. In addition, the desert is beautiful and I have used Nevada desert videos for relaxation training for several clients.
One August day during a poetry convention I attended in Las Vegas, the temperature reached nearly 110 degrees. That evening when I left the hotel to do some sightseeing, I was surprised that it was still 98 degrees at 9:00 pm, especially since up in the hotel room, the Nevada winds outside had created the sounds of winter winds to my ears!
