Named by Rafael Rivera, Las Vegas means "the meadows". Lying in the valley with the Spring Mountains to the west, ?with disappearing native tribes and numerous settlers who have come and gone? this city with its springs became important with the emerging railroads. The Hoover Dam helped increase the population, as did its connections to Los Angeles and Salt Lake City. Overcoming early legal glitches, today it has become one of the most visited places in the United States.
