Have A Grand Vegas Time at the MGM Grand

There have been two MGMs on the Las Vegas Strip. The first opened in 1973, and after a disastrous fire in 1980 that killed 85 people and injured more than 600, mostly from smoke inhalation, it was gutted. The rebuilt hotel on the site today was opened as Bally's in 1986. In 1992, a brand new hotel complex was erected about a mile south on The Strip (Las Vegas Boulevard), and today it is known as the MGM Grand Resort.
