ost all your cash at the casino? Wake up with a hottie you don't recognize? Don't sweat it in Las Vegas. As its new ad slogan goes: "What happens here, stays here."

Las Vegas has gotten over its failed fascination with attracting "family" visitors. By returning to its image as an adults-only playground, Vegas is hip and hot again.

Las Vegas attracted a record-breaking 37.4 million visitors in 2004. That topped the 35.8 million who visited in 2000, before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks devastated the tourism industry. This year, Las Vegas expects 38.2 million.

"We still compete with Orlando and New York. But based on overnight visitors, we're the top destination in North America," says Terry Jicinsky, head of marketing for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.
