THIS YEAR IN LAS VEGAS ...

WHILE IN THE WORLD ...

New Comings on the Strip and Beyond
The Stratosphere is inaugurated on April 30. Its tower offers one of the world tallest observations decks (outdoor at 872 feet, and indoor at 855 feet), for a unique view of Las Vegas.
The Monte Carlo opens on June 21. With over 3,000 rooms, it is one of the most elegant resorts on the Strip.
Orleans Hotel and Casino opens this winter in Tropicana Ave.

Spectacular Ends
The Hacienda and the Sands, two hotel-casinos that have made the history of Las Vegas, will implode this year.
The Sands, opened in 1952, closes on June 39 and is finally torn down on November 26 to make way to the Venetian.
The Hacienda, dated 1955, is destroyed on the New Year's Eve. The Mandalay Bay resort will be erected on its place.

Once More for Bill Clinton
Bill Clinton is reelected President of the U.S. It is the first time, after President Roosvelt, that a Democrat has been reelected. This time Clinton reaches a success even higher than that of his first election.
In addition, the Democrat Bill Clinton has been elected President, although Republicans have the control of the Congress.

The Ghost of Terrorism
On July 27, a bomb explodes in the Centennial Olympic Park, in Atlanta, killing one person and injuring 111. The responsible will be recognised in a security guard.
In the same days, TWA Flight 800 explodes over the ocean, killing all 230 passengers. This disaster is rather similar to that of Lockerbie, dated 1988.
In this case, the official investigation will last 2 years, and will conclude that the origin of this tragedy was only a malfunctioning of the carrier.
