Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall
5111 Boulder Hwy
Las Vegas, NV 89122
Sam's Town was the first casino to open on Boulder Highway and was often credited as one of the first to target locals. The property opened in 1979 with a western theme and a dance hall that was a big hit due to the 1980 release of Urban Cowboy, and the space has expanded dramatically over the years. Stop by to check out Mystics Falls, an indoor park that includes a waterfall, trees, and a laser light show five times a day, and swing by The Angry Butcher steakhouse for prime rib dip sliders and house-made corn dogs. And in case you were wondering, yes, "Sam's Town" by The Killers was named after this joint.
