Today’s Vegas Trivia: The First Elevator

Fremont Street was the site of Las Vegas’ first elevator. It was installed in the Apache Hotel in 1932.

Here’s some additional Vegas trivia: The next time you’re in an elevator in a Las Vegas hotel, take a peek at the number buttons. You’ll probably see some floors missing! For example, at Planet Hollywood, the numbers skip the fourth floor, and all the floor numbers in the 40s. Oh, and you typically won’t find a 13th floor in Vegas hotels either.

Why? Lots of people consider 13 an unlucky number, of course, and certain cultures feel the same way about 4 and numbers in the 40s. We do our best to accommodate here in Sin City!
