The Las Vegas Territory was created in 1983 by the Nevada Commission on Tourism (NCOT), in conjunction with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors' Authority (LVCVA) to assist in promoting the non-gaming and outlying tourism entities, as well as scenic attractions, outdoor recreation, and events throughout the region.
The Las Vegas Territory is actually one of six regional, marketing arms of the state. It is comprised of the Las Vegas Valley, Boulder City, Henderson, Laughlin, Jean, Primm, and Mesquite.
Las Vegas naturally brings to mind gaming and world-class entertainment. But, there is another side of Nevada we hope you will experience and most certainly enjoy! Our territory is filled with outdoor recreational opportunities, shopping adventures, dining pleasures, and romantic get-aways just to name a few.
