    If you are into history, the Mormon site in downtown is now a state park and pretty interesting. From downtown it is a short bus ride (108?). There are lots of displays and part of the original fort reconstructed. I went there several years ago and in spite of the 32,000,000 visitors to LV annually, I was there alone for a few hours!

    I'm up to the 1940's and this is just great. I really like the simple, easy to follow layout. Not so many details that it gets boring or doesn't move, but not just a simple timeline. A great "short" read to familiarize yourself with the history of Las Vegas.
