A spike in millennial visitors to Las Vegas has the generation almost eclipsing Generation X tourists in town.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority released its annual Las Vegas Visitors Profile on Wednesday, made up of survey results from 3,600 participants, confirming millennials are poised to make up the largest chunk of Las Vegas tourist numbers.

About 34 percent of the almost 43 million visitors to Las Vegas were millennials last year, up from 24 percent in 2015. Generation X visitors dropped from 36 percent to 35 percent, and Baby Boomers fell from 35 percent to 28 percent during the same timeframe. http://www,
