I was born in Las Vegas Growing up in the north, I know one or two things to explore.

Here are some What we want tourists to know Before visiting the so-called Sin City in Nevada.

If you visit the strip, be prepared to walk

Walking along the strip is such a dazzling and unique experience. It hosts some of the most striking lights and architecture that are larger than the real thing. Moreover, it’s a dream of people’s watchers.

However, it’s just over 4 miles long, so plan ahead and plan your route. If walking is not yours, There are other options for exploring Strips like trams and buses.

Don’t worry about calling a taxi — call RideShare or rent a car

In my experience it’s really hard to stop a taxi for you in Las Vegas (and It is forbidden to stop a taxi to pick up passengers on the strip). I think it’s really hard to find a taxi to hail in the city.

There are many people exploring Las Vegas on foot, and ride sharing is popular. actually, Many casinos in Las Vegas Ubers or Lyfts will provide you with a designated location to find you and pick you up.

Renting a car is also a surefire option. Be careful when driving, as pedestrians can be very distracted by all light and crowds.

Don’t forget to tip the workers

Almost all service providers in Las Vegas (staff, entertainers, bartenders, etc.) rely on tourism for their livelihoods.

I’ve never met someone who works hard to make people happy and comfortable, like friends who work in casinos and hotels. They love to share the stories of tourists who have spent the day and are constantly honing their crafts to provide visitors with a worthwhile travel experience.

Dehydration is not a joke

Dry air in Las Vegas can really sneak up on you, especially if you’re drinking alcohol and walking a ton.

It’s pretty easy in this heat Get dehydratedSo I recommend you bring water with you (and don’t forget to drink it often).

Don’t miss free entertainment

Las Vegas is known for its extravagant experience, but there are many things you can do without spending money.For example, the person watching was one of me Favorite free activities growing up.

I also love visiting the Bellagio Fountain on the Strip, which regularly hosts water shows with music and light. There is a first Friday in the Downtown Arts District at the beginning of every month, where you can see thematic exhibits and listen to live music.

There is also Free museums and aquariums Some beautiful hiking trials in and just outside the city.

Catch the show’s matinee is a great way to save money

If you have a show you want to see, check to see if there is an afternoon show.

If so, you will probably save a decent amount of money. In my experience, Matinee also tends to be a little less crowded.

As a local, I went to the show almost in the afternoon because I felt like I was avoiding the crowds and spending too much on something.
