    Because any vices that you can think of are pretty much legal there. While in most of America prostitution is illegal, call girls are constantly walking around the casino, people hand out flyers on the street with numbers you can call so they go right to your hotel. Drinking is allowed in that city anywhere - the streets, cabs, hotels. Any other city it is illegal to have an open containter in public. Not to mention the gambling.

    Sin City is more of a nickname, but considering what you can do there, anything goes.

    The city's tolerance for various forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of Sin City, and this image has made Las Vegas a popular setting for films and television programs. On the other hand, Las Vegas also has the highest number of churches per capita of any major U.S. city
