Las Vegas continues to be the go-to destination for millions of visitors annually; in fact, the city recorded just shy of 40 million tourists in 2012 alone. Visitors from North America and other parts of the world, they’re drawn to the many opportunities that await them. To learn more about the fabulous city of Las Vegas, here are some interesting facts from the Las Vegas Conventions and Visitors Authority:

• Total first-time and repeat visitors in 2012: 39,727,022

• 16% were first-time visitors

• 8% were there primarily to gamble

• 47% said that their primary reason for visiting was for vacation and pleasure

• 14% gave visiting friends/relatives as the main reason for visiting

• Repeat visitors have made an average of 5.8 trips in the last five years

While Las Vegas still remains as one of the most visited cities in the United States, the percentage of tourists whose primary reason for being in Vegas is to gamble has steadily declined over the last decade. Hotels and casinos have both responded to the trend and helped counter it by ramping up family entertainment, opening fabulous restaurants and bars, adding more shops and boutiques, and offering visitors more choices of entertainment. And due to its unparalleled tourist visits, trusted flight service provider, DialAFlight has hailed the Sin City as one of their most booked/visited places on earth.

Aside from gambling, other tourists take advantage of the many local attractions on the Strip. For example, the area is now a destination for serious golfers who want to enjoy the challenge and beauty of playing courses that integrate the desert into their designs.

The Red Rock Canyon—which offers fun and exciting opportunities such as hiking, photography, and painting—is just a short drive from the city center. Somewhere off the city’s hustle and bustle, Mt. Charleston and the Spring Mountain Recreational Area are the best places to go camping, biking, birding, and other outdoor fun activities.

Meanwhile back at the heart of the city, catching a Las Vegas 51’s baseball game is a treat for the whole family from April to September. But if you want to see the wild side of Vegas, the Las Vegas Zoo is open all year round. These are just a few of the things and activities to enjoy that keep bringing visitors to Las Vegas by the millions.

    For example: tinea capitis refers to scalp ringworm, tinea
    corporis for a body fungus and tinea pedia for foot fungus.
    As the fats increases this causes the fat cell to
    increase in our body which results in uneven cell placement in the fiber compartment resulting in bulging
    of skin cells which forms uneven layers of fats under the skin surface and that appears as cellulite.
    When these components are combined with Retinol A and other
    natural substances described above, you could simply get rid of cellulite.
