Vegas favourite the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino is undergoing a $450 million transformation to become a NoMad hotel and Park MGM.
Meanwhile, hotel tycoon Steve Wynn is following a city-wide shift towards outdoor experiences with Wynn Paradise Park, a $1.5 billion project to build a 38-acre white sand beach lined lagoon for recreation and water sports. It’s the biggest development his company has undertaken in Vegas in almost 10 years.
