Back now in Las Vegas. This is the symbol of MGM in all its glory. This statue of the MGM Lion is huge. Just look at the size of the cars compaired to it.
It is located at the corner of the MGM Grand hotel and Casino. MGM Grand is famous for its boxing matches and Lion Habitat and is the starting point of the new monorail. Performing at the MGM Grand next month include Pearl Jam, David Copperfield, Mariah Carey, and later Tom Jones.
Las Vegas City History - 1917 - U.S. enters World War I. Las Vegas becomes a busy depot as Nevada's plentiful metals pass through en route to aid the Allied effort in the war.
