Have you ever wondered why there is no apostrophe in Caesars Palace?

Many people who have lived in Las Vegas for a long time already know the answer. But newcomers may not.

Apparently, someone with Forbes magazine didn't know the answer either. 

An article in the magazine explains that Jay Sarno, who was the man behind Caesars Palace, believed that everyone should be treated like royalty at the casino-hotel.

So, he removed the apostrophe to signify that Caesars was for everyone and not just Caesar.

Caesars Palace opened in 1966 on the famous Las Vegas Strip.
