Modern History of Nevada
During World War II, numerous new military installations were created in Nevada and existing ones were reconstructed and expanded, in particular the largest Nellis Air Force Base in the state.
After the end of the war, a construction boom began in Nevada – new hotels and casinos were built one after another, mainly in Las Vegas. Tourists from all over the country traveled here, as well as to Reno and other cities in Nevada, attracted by the entertainment offered here, very easy marriage and divorce procedures, and, of course, gambling.
It is believed that in the post-war decades, mafia investments played a very important role in the development of Nevada, seeking to legalize their income and investing huge sums in the development of the gambling business.
For example, the Flamingo Hotel, opened in Las Vegas in 1946, was built with the money of well-known crime bosses Bugsy Siegel and Meir Lansky.
Nevada, with its vast wilderness areas, was chosen by the US government as a site for nuclear weapons testing. In the early fifties of the XX century, a landfill was created about a hundred kilometers northwest of Las Vegas, covering about three and a half thousand square kilometers.
On January 27, 1951, the first nuclear weapons tests in Nevada were carried out at the test site. A charge with a capacity of about 0.5 kilotons of TNT was blown up.
In the fifties and sixties of the XX century, not knowing about the possible consequences, numerous tourists gathered to look at the “nuclear mushrooms” (and they were perfectly visible from Las Vegas).
The last nuclear explosion in the atmosphere at the Nevada test site was carried out on July 17, 1962, and the underground one on September 23, 1992. A total of 928 nuclear weapons were detonated at the test site, more than anywhere else in the United States.
After the legalization of casinos in 1976 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Nevada lost its monopoly on gambling. In order not to lose the flow of tourists, it was necessary to come up with something new, unusual.
In the eighties of the XX century, the “era of mega-hotels” began, attracting tourists not only with gambling, but also with themed shows, celebrity concerts, sports competitions and other entertainment.
Now the cities of Nevada and especially Las Vegas are one of the most popular places in the United States for holding various conventions, conventions and other similar public events. Las Vegas is the second (after New York) most popular city among tourists in the United States.
