Casino MonteLago Celebrates a Year Since Reopening

A year ago, Casino MonteLago reopened at Lake Las Vegas after shutting down because of the recession.

A lot has changed in that year. More shops at the Village at Lake Las Vegas are opening and real estate values are up 14 percent. The resorts on the lake, including The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort, Hotel Ravella and Casino MonteLago, are working together to keep people visiting.

Memorial Day weekend Casino MonteLago and the village are having a one year anniversary party.
