The history of the area is well known to most people. Las Vegas began as a small 110-hectare city in 1905 and incorporated in 1911. In 1931 Las Vegas legalized gambling, and 10 years later, the Las Vegas Army Air Corps set up shop in the rapidly developing desert community. Post-WWII saw the commencement of the hotel and casino boom, which continued for decades. In the late 1980s, small gambling establishments began to be replaced by mega-casino resorts such as the Mirage. Today, Las Vegas has world-renowned hotels, casinos, museums and annual events. The Las Vegas Natural History Museum, Discovery Children's Museum and Neon Museum draw tens of thousands of locals and tourists each year, while the Downtown Arts District packs in the masses once a month for art, music and food during the "First Friday" festival.
