Visitors Stay Longer, Spend More
(Las Vegas, NV) — Las Vegas visitors stayed longer and spent more money last year. That’s according to a new profile by the Convention and Visitors Authority. In 2010, tourists spent an average of just more than three nights in Sin City, and their vacations cost more compared to 2009. But 80-percent of all visitors gambled in Vegas last year, compared to 87-percent in 2006.
The tourism agency also says the average visitor was married and earned more than 40-thousand dollars a year. Seven out of ten Vegas visitors were at least 40 years old.
