How is Vegas anything like New Orleans?

Two different histories. Two different landscapes. Two different ways both grew...

Both are destinations for gambling, drinking, adult entertainment.

Fair enough. But I see more differences than just Vegas being more "commercialized".

Their is a reason why Vegas is bigger and badder, it's overall better in all aspects! I got love for New Orleans but Vegas all day!

Vegas is a manufactured tourist destination whereas NOLA is a charming cultural city that uses it's history. Tell us what would Vegas be if there were no casinos? Atlantic City!

Never been to New Orleans, but really interested in visiting. Vegas is too commercial.

Vegas is very commercial, but that's what I like about it. Its new, shiny, and puts a huge focus on catering to it's tourists

But the thing is, you can't take the strip away from Vegas. You can easily say the same about NOLA? Without the French Quarter, it would just be an ordinary southern city with high crime

Except that's not true. Outside of the French Quarter, NOLA still have several historic and interesting districts and neighborhoods in their own right. It would be more akin to, say, Richmond, VA.
