LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas saw the highest visitor volume so far during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In July, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority reported more than 3.3 million visitors. It's 11% more visitors from last month and is the strongest visitation month since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

However, Las Vegas visitation still isn't showing pre-pandemic numbers just yet. Year-over-year compared to 2019, visitation is still down 10.4%.

Nevada gaming has rebounded, according to a report released Thursday by the Nevada Gaming Control Board. Nevada set a monthly win record of $1.36 billion in July.
