In the 1990s, businesses, hotels, and casinos started looking for alternate ways of getting visitors to open their wallets, so they tried a different approach and promoted Las Vegas as a family vacation destination. The Excalibur Hotel, MGM Grand Adventures Park, and Casinos opened on the Las Vegas Strip started the Sin City’s family-friendly era. The 1990s was the era of mega-hotels and theme parks. In 1993, a unique pink-domed 5-acre indoor amusement park, Grand Slam Canyon, became part of the Circus Circus hotel. Las Vegas elected its first female mayor, Jan Laverty Jones. The Neon Museum was founded in 1996 that features signs from old casinos and other businesses displayed outdoors on 2.62 acres.
Several movies were also made that kept the freedom and pop culture of the city alive such as ‘Indecent Proposal (1993)’, ‘Leaving Las Vegas (1995)’ and ‘Showgirls (1995)’. Here below are some photos that will take you back to the 1990s Las Vegas.
