One does not need to go to Vegas to find an equivalent to Sodom and Gomorrah. The lifestyles of many cities encompass more vice than either city in their day. Happily, we have more churches than they did, so a bit more restraint and a bit more reminder.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. (Well not really, you couldn't possibly be so naïve as to think someone is NOT keeping tabs on you there?) To answer your question. I have no freakin clue. If you go there in the month of August it might as well be!
Lol no, I'm not sure you can compare any city to them. Surly Las Vegas has a lot of "activities" that go against the bible, but the bible says Sodom and Gomorra didn't have a single righteous person in it.
Sweety, there are places much worse than Las Vegas in this world of ours. Las Vegas is TAME and INNOCENT compared to many international cities. I reccomend you go check out the Red Light district of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Prostitution is legal and regulated there. You can walk down the streets watch naked or near naked prostitutes, both female and male, publicly displaying and advertising what they have to offer in glass display windows. There are even specific districts for gay men and gay women to find matching rent boys or rent girls. Las Vegas is nothing. Its a gambling mecca with the crime that goes along with it but NO, its not a modern day Soddom OR Gomorah. No more than Hollywood or San Francisco or New York or Atlantic City or New Orleans - or really any other major city anywhere in the world.

You first need to understand what was the sun of Sodom for which it was punished. It wasn't just sexual immorality. The main sin was social injustice. Sodom condemned helping the poor. In two cases they punished those who helped the poor. One time a woman gave another one who was starving some flour. As punishment she (the woman who gave the flour) was covered with honey, and left on the roof for the bees and insects to kill her. In another case a woman gave another one who was hungry a loaf of bread. As punishment she (the woman who gave the bread) was burnt alive at the stake. Therefore the main sin of Sodom was that they conducted themselves according to " what's mine is mine; what's yours is yours" - no social institutions to help and support those in need, no welfare, but ruthless social indifference even though Sodom was rich and could afford decent welfare. Now that you know what the sin of Sodom was I think you can answer your own question. One more comment: the Bible calls Nineveh "Sin City".
I know this. There is a difference in management styles among casinos such as The Aria and Wynn which can't be even be put in the same category as The Palms and Hard Rock in terms of what is acceptable in their casinos, but that gives choices to tourists. Steve Wynn of Wynn and Bobby Baldwin of The Aria keep their casinos meticulously clean across the board-and there's a lot of "boards" to keep clean. Yes, the strip can get messy from younger tourists losing their minds thinking this is their one chance to go nuts, but that is an ongoing problem that is constantly monitored and acted upon by metro. Las Vegas' biggest problem is the 20,000 gang members who have come from various countries, including our own, fluctuating and filling the city with members of those gangs who commit serious crimes against tourists and residents. There are many many people living in Las Vegas who perform heroic acts of kindness and giving every single day which are sometimes overshadowed by these gangs' violence. It actually is one of the most giving cities in the USA by local residents whose goal it is the make Las Vegas safe.
I agree with Belly! To find out on your own you must walk through town on your own and see if you get attacked by roving groups of gay men who want a piece of the new meat in town. Just as they did to the angels who came to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah.
