Travel Thru History: Las VegasDocumentary
Box Office: $0.0M
Journey to the Wild West on today's episode of Travel Thru History! Take a peek behind the curtain of the most entertaining city in the world. It's a place carved out of the Mojave Desert; a place we've come to know as Las Vegas. While the city is known for its endless entertainment options we'll take a look into the intriguing roots that were much different from what Las Vegas is today. We get things rolling by visiting the first permanent structure that was built in the valley. It was a small adobe Mormon Fort that was constructed by Mormon Missionaries. We'll learn how this became an essential crossroad for travelers. We'll blast our way into the 1940's and 50's as we visit the National Atomic Testing museum to learn about how the desert outside of Vegas was used for testing America's secret nuclear weapons. Next we visit the Neon Museum Boneyard, the final resting place for those large neon signs used to light up Las Vegas skyline. Put aside your previous notions of Las Vegas because we're going to prove that there is so much more to Las Vegas than rolling dice.
