The trend of slow economic recovery in Las Vegas continued as 2010 came to a close. The number of people who visited Sin City last December rose 3.7 percent compared to a year earlier. For all of 2010, overall visits were up 2.7 points.
Robert LaFleur, managing director of gaming, lodging and equity research at Hudson Securities, said that the signs of recovery are there but acknowledged that growth is far from rampant.
"This is recovery in fits and spurts and by no means robust," he said. "But you have to crawl before you walk, so this is a step in the right direction."
