An Amazing Year Ahead For Las Vegas

We've been feeling it for quite some time now. Months maybe. There is something in the air and it feels really good. It's that feeling that change is coming, and it's change we can all appreciate. Las Vegas, like the rest of the country and much of the world, has been under the pall of slow economy for several years now. And although our particular industry, FUN!, is never completely our of style. Still, nobody spends as much or feels as free to enjoy themselves when money is tight and good jobs are hard to come by.

Now with 2012 here, it seems as though the air is changing. Here and in other places too. Las Vegas just enjoyed one of its biggest New Years Eve celebrations ever. Caesars Palace had so many bookings that they opened their new tower months in advance to accommodate the guests. And not only is occupancy up, room rates are too. The crux of all this is that there has been a steady increase in visitors to Las Vegas over the last few months, and they are bringing along more money to spend.

This is a resilient town with a long history of good times and bad. Las Vegas is legendary as both a place of new beginnings and sad endings as well. Movies and novels have told the stories for years. Those of us who live here know all too well the cycles of life and the ebb and flow of our living. And now it looks like the flow is towards the positive again. We are all very excited to see what happens here in the next year. We are ready for it and we know you are too!

Happy New Year from Las Vegas Retreats. We hope 2012 will be your best year ever and we wish you great success and the best of luck in Las Vegas.
