    Stratosphere tallest structure west of the Mississippi River. I think about 8 out of the top 10 grossing nightclubs are in Vegas.

    I think it goes back and forth with one of the hotels at Genting Highlands. And if you want to get really technical about it, Venetian/Palazzo considers themselves a single hotel and thus the largest in the world, but I refuse to buy that.

    The most hotel rooms over any other city in North America. Only Paris has more hotel rooms.

    More hookers than any other city(assumption).

    And probably leads the world in annual alcohol comsumption(assumption)

    If you count a mixed use building with hotel rooms and residential space, then I think Abraj Al Bait dwarfs the entire Las Vegas strip combined with room to house 100,000 people: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraj_Al_Bait. Check out some of the pictures...it makes City Center look tiny.


    Nevada has the highest crime rate of any state in the U.S.

    Sapphire's is the largest gentleman's club in North America.

    Several restaurants are unique. For example, Denny's on FSE has the only wedding chapel in a Denny's. The McDonald's outside PHo has the most expensive artwork of any and the Walgreens there on that same corner was the most expensive to build and outfit. The Yard House at the Linq is the largest yet and several chain restaurants, including Denny's and McDonalds are the most upscale the brands have put into place. Recent press releases claim Las Vegas now has the most celeb chef restaurants. CVS and Walgreens have set records for having multiple stores closer together than anywhere else (The Strip) and some chains have their most profitable/busy restaurants in Las Vegas (Mickie Finnz and Hennessy's, both on FSE, are top earners in the Hennessy's org).

    The obvious one is that the Las Vegas Convention Center is the largest single floor convention center in the world.

    MGM Grand, as noted, is actually the 2nd largest hotel.

    We were delayed on our flight last time and the ticket/gate agent started giving weird facts about Vegas. One of them I remember is that more shrimp is served in Vegas on a daily basis than anywhere else in the world.
