DESTINATION - LAS VEGAS

Las Vegas , an ever-changing fantasy-land of a city, has seen unbelievable expansion since it emerged from the desert 100 years ago.

Thirty-seven million visitors enjoy the sights and sounds of Las Vegas every year. They stay in some of the most glamorous, unique hotels in the world. They eat at five-star restaurants and expansive buffets. They play at casinos, pools, health spas and golf courses. Sometimes (many times, actually) they even marry each other.

You will be dazzled by Vegas, but the sheer number of things to see and do can seem overwhelming. A little advance planning will help you to enjoy your Vegas trip. Continue reading for basic visitor information (what to bring, things to know) and an overview of this special destination.

Fun Facts

The city of Las Vegas celebrated its 100th birthday on May 15, 2005. The event celebrated the May 15, 1905 land auction when 110 acres of land in downtown  Las Vegas were auctioned off. 

1910 law made it illegal to gamble in Las Vegas. The Nevada Legislature later approved a legalized gambling bill in 1931.

The first hotel and casino to open in Las Vegas was the Golden Gate Hotel and Casino in 1906.

The Hoover Dam was completed in 1935. It took a total of 21,000 men five years to complete the structure.

The Moulin Rouge, the city’s first racially integrated hotel, opened in 1955.

In 1957, topless showgirls debuted on the Las Vegas Strip in “Minsky’s Follies” at the Dunes.

The famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign was created in 1959 by Betty Willis.

In 2004, more than 37 million people visited Las Vegas. Compare this to 1970 when a mere 6.7 million people visited the city.

More than 22,000 conventions were held in Las Vegas in 2004.

In 2004, visitors stayed an average of 3.6 nights.

More than 5,000 people move into the Las Vegas valley on a monthly basis.

Las Vegas is home to Clark County School District, the fifth largest school district, which currently handles more than 280,000 students.

The famous Las Vegas strip is for the most part, not within the city limits of Las Vegas. The majority of the strip is located within Clark County.

The Stratosphere Hotel and Tower, at more than 1,100 feet, is the tallest building west of the Mississippi and the fifth tallest building in the United States.

A marriage license costs $55 in Nevada. Many couples choose to marry in Nevada because there is no blood test or waiting period.

Fremont Street was closed to traffic in 1994. The Fremont Street Experience opened in December 1995.

ACTIVITIES AND CPE

AWARDS Gala
Join ASWA and AWSCPA for an elegant joint awards luncheon gala that will celebrate the winners of ASWAEF’s Balance Awards and AWSCPA’s National Awards. The fifth annual ASWA Balance Awards program will recognize the individuals – and companies – who have shown a commitment to work/life balance and sensitivity to the concerns of women in the industry. The AWSCPA recognizes the individual achievements of its members and non-members with the following awards: the Woman CPA of the Year Award, Educator of the Year Award, Public Service Award, and the Woman of Courage Award.

Forrest A. Kessler Walk for Humanity
After the Welcome Reception, the Forrest A. Kessler Walk for Humanity 2006 provides you the opportunity to join your ASWA and AWSCPA friends from across the country for a National Charity Fundraiser sponsored by the American Society of Women Accountants, the American Woman’s Society of CPAs and The Leukemia &
Lymphoma Society. This is an event to remember all Humanitarians we have loved and lost.

The Sixth Annual Walk will be held on Monday, September 18, 2006 from 6:30 – 9:00 pm. The event has a nominal tax-deductible registration fee of $50. The experience includes participation in an exciting Las Vegas event, a signature T-shirt and a raffle ticket for special prizes. All of the proceeds from this event will go to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This Society is the leader in the fight against the number one disease killer of children. Adult women and men are also victims of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma - cancers of bone marrow and blood. Click here to download a registration form today!

Fundraising Gala
Join your friends and colleagues at the JNC’s third fundraising event! During the Awards Gala, the foundations of the ASWA and AWSCPA will be hosting an exciting event to raise important funds to support the mission of each foundation. Details will follow.

The ASWA Educational Foundation was created to enhance recognition, philanthropic pursuits, and industry research in support of women in accounting and related fields. The AWSCPA Foundation was created in 1982 to support the research and educational activities of the AWSCPA and provide scholarship opportunities for women in the accounting profession.

We are actively soliciting your help with a joint fundraising activity for the  AWSCPA Foundation and the ASWA Educational Foundation.  Participants in the Gala Luncheon on Wednesday, September 20 will have the time of their lives  with entertainment and an auction featuring items donated by affiliates, firms and individuals from across the country with all proceeds going to the Foundations.

In order for us to provide participants an exciting event with wonderful bidding and raffle opportunities, we need the support of our members, supporters, chapters and affiliates.  We are asking for donations that would work with the live auction and silent auction format.  Donations with at least a $100 value are needed and we are encouraging affiliates, supporters and members to join forces to donate some really spectacular offerings. Ideas include electronics, gift cards from specialty retailers or fine restaurants, sporting event packages, or weekend get-a-ways.  There is no limit to the creativity!  Contributors have the ability to elect their choice of Foundations for donation proceeds.

If you are able to donate an item to the event, please complete a commitment form from AWSCPA and return it to the JNC’s Live Auction/Silent Auction at the AWSCPA National office by September 13, 2006.  Items may be brought with you if you are attending the JNC or mailed to the auction and raffle site. On behalf of both Foundations, we truly appreciate your support and dedication to the profession.

GETTING THERE/UPON ARRIVAL


Las Vegas is a compact city with many attractions available in the central area around the Strip and downtown. Transportation options are numerous and varied, from renting a vintage Cadillac Eldorado or new Corvette, to hopping on a city bus, taking a cab or riding the Las Vegas Monorail, one of the most modern transportation systems in the world.

Airport Shuttle
If you're flying into Vegas, the most economical way to get to your hotel is probably on an airport shuttle. The shuttles gather just outside the terminal in the same area as the taxis.

Shuttle service to the Strip or downtown costs less than $10, and buses run 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Check with your hotel to arrange the return trip to McCarran.

Car Rentals
The average price for renting an economy car in Vegas is around $25 to $30 per day, but the sky's the limit if you want to cruise the Strip in something a little more extravagant. Rates will rise on holiday weekends or when there's a large convention in town.

As for driving, the city is laid out in a grid format, and easy to navigate. Be sure to keep a map handy, though.

Buses and Charters
There are several private companies that operate buses and charters that travel to attractions in and around Las Vegas.

Limousine Services
There's certainly something to be said for seeing Las Vegas in style, and you can do so for as low as $35 an hour. Options and pricing vary widely depending on the vehicle and services you desire.

Parking
The good news is that free parking is abundant. Virtually every major hotel offers free valet parking (it's customary to tip valets $2 when they retrieve your car; this is still a great deal compared to virtually every other major U.S. city.)

Parking is not allowed on the Strip itself, and several blocks of Fremont Street form a pedestrian mall, the Fremont Street Experience, and are closed to vehicular traffic. Your best bet to park on the Strip or downtown is in one of the hotel lots or parking garages. Be sure to take note on where you leave your vehicle, or even better, take advantage of valet parking whenever you can.

Public Transportation
Public bus transportation in Las Vegas is operated by Citizens Area Transit (CAT). There are numerous bus routes throughout the area; a one-way fare on the Strip costs $2, and slightly less in the rest of the city. Buses on the Strip run 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For the latest information and scheduling, call CAT-RIDE at 702-228-7433, or visit the CAT Web site.

There is also a trolley that runs the length of the Strip. Reasonable fares and day passes are available, and the trolley runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m.

Search for Local Transportation

Taxis
You shouldn't have any trouble finding a cab in town. Fares start with $2.70 on the meter, and $1.80 is then added for every additional mile. Search for Taxi Companies

The Las Vegas Monorail
The $600 million Las Vegas Monorail is a transportation marvel. The four-mile route runs as far south as the MGM Grand Hotel, and as far north as the Sahara Hotel. There are seven stations in all. Single-ride tickets are $3; 10-ride ticket books cost $20; a single-day pass is $10 and a three-day pass is $25. Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 2 a.m., seven days a week.

Vegas on Foot
With all of these transportation options, you will still cover a lot of the city on foot. That said, the length of the Strip can be deceptive… it takes more time than you would think to walk from one end to the other. But parts of the Strip must be experienced on foot: where else in the world can you marvel at dancing fountains (the Bellagio), see an erupting volcano (the Mirage), or watch pirates and sirens entertain on ships nightly? ( Treasure Island or T.I.) Not to mention downtown's Fremont Street Experience, which is a haven for pedestrians. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and carry a bottle of water.
