Spanish traders on their way to Los Angeles via the Spanish Trail during the early 18th century sought a route that would pass through the then-unexplored Las Vegas Valley. A young scout named Rafael Rivera discovered a valley with abundant wild grasses and a plentiful water supply that enabled the journey to be reduced by several days. This valley was named Las Vegas, Spanish for "The Meadows."
Since then, Las Vegas has grown in leaps and bounds to become the metropolis it is today - an excellent city to live in or near. The Las Vegas Valley - and the communities of Spanish Trail and Southern Terrace - truly has something for everyone.
