LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas saw about as many visitors in May as it did during the same month last year, although gambling was up on the Strip.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority says about 3.5 million visitors came to Las Vegas in May. That's .1 percent higher than the same month last year.

Room prices were up by $5 to $118 this year, and citywide occupancy rates remained flat at 88.6 percent.

The Strip posted a 6.4 percent monthly gain in May.

The month saw a Rolling Stones concert, Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson Immortal show, two boxing matches and Memorial Day weekend parties at clubs all over town.

Southern Nevada tourism is up 0.2 percent so far this year.
