After the conclusion of WW1 the USA was in a war economy, and because of this industry boomed, causing a massive surplus of goods. This caused the prices of goods to go down, and with the creation of credit plans many families could afford extravagant luxuries, previously denied. This coupled with 18th amendment and prohibition, both of which backfired causing booze to be cheaper and easier to find thanks to moonshiners and speakeasies, made the decade wild overall.

Las Vegas has remained a dominant vacation destination. “people go just as much for shopping, partying, restaurants, and shows as they do for gambling” (Hoium 1).
