    I always knew the Strip was not in the city of Las Vegas, but rather in the Town of Paradise. Yesterday in a bar discussion, we were looking up when the Stardust closed. 11/1/06, hard to believe it's 9 years already. Anyway, it is from Wiki, so take it for it's worth, but it says the Stardust was in the Town of Winchester.

    I found out there is/was a Town of Winchester, in addition to Paradise, but can't find any maps with borders shown. Can anybody help me out? Just a curiosity thing and it bugs me that I didn't know that. I always assumed you had the Town of Paradise and if you went north, you entered the City of Las Vegas, just past the Strat.

    Thx

    Sounds like a good place to have a nice cold pint and wait for all this to blow over.

    Town is frequently used in the west to denote a defined, populated area within the unincorporated county, as opposed to being a charter or general law municipality. Depending on the jurisdiction, they can have municipal-like powers (not in this case -- beyond the advisory-to-the-county part).
