Vegas reigns as ‘marriage capital’
One of the more popular tourist attractions in the United States is also a popular place to tie the knot.
The bright lights of the Las Vegas strip and the surrounding area have drawn visitors for decades. Las Vegas also is home to more than 100,000 weddings per year, according to Clark County Clerk marriage license records. Weddings may be performed at local churches, other houses of worship, inside lavish casinos or at the small chapels in and around Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is sometimes referred to as “The Marriage Capital of the World” thanks in part to the ease of acquiring a marriage license in the city and the minimal costs involved to tie the knot. But Las Vegas is more than just a popular place to tie the knot.
According to data gathered by Facebook in 2014, when the social media service compiled data from users “check-ins,” Las Vegas also has grown into a popular honeymoon destination. Las Vegas also has evolved into a popular spot to celebrate one last hurrah before the big wedding day. Individuals frequently plan bachelor or bachelorette party weekends that incorporate all of the fun Las Vegas has to offer.
