Don’t Make These Mistakes In Vegas

  

Published

 Sin City is consistently in the top five most-visited cities in America every year – 2019 is no different. But, as much as Vegas is all about forgetting the rules and letting loose, don’t be negligent. There are still some basic concepts you should not partake in while enjoying Vegas. 

DON’T SKIP SUNSCREEN

     A huge aspect of having a great time in Las Vegas is simply hanging out by the pool. Virtually every hotel pool has a swim-up bar these days. But let’s not forget, Las Vegas is literally in the desert. The heat can be straight-up brutal in the summer. So don’t make the mistake of not applying sunscreen! Have the time of your life in Vegas isn’t worth getting skin cancer.

DON’T TRY TO USE A FAKE ID

     Vegas may seem like the kind of place where rules go out the window, but one rule that is still very much in effect… Vegas is still very much “21 & older.” Various law enforcement agencies such as the Gaming Commission are looking for any reason to bust a hotel or casino breaking the rules. If you’re under 21, you can still enjoy the city, but don’t bother trying to sneak into clubs with that fake ID your brother crafted. 

DON’T FORGET TO TIP

     As you can imagine, Vegas is overflowing with working people of the hospitality game. Bartenders, waiters, bellhops, valet drivers… the list goes on and on. These people work very hard to provide a proper Vegas experience, so they’re the last people you want to offend by not giving a good tip. Honestly, we shouldn’t even have to tell you this one. Tip your staff!

DON’T PAY FOR SEX

     A lot of people probably assume prostitution is legal in a place like Las Vegas. Well, news flash, it isn’t! Regardless of how much you may get bombarded with escort cards while walking down the strip, prostitution is still very much illegal in Las Vegas. So don’t take the risk just because you’re letting your hair down. If you were to get caught, you could face some serious fines and possibly even jail time. Don’t risk it!

DON’T RELY ON ATMs

      While most places will, of course, take credit cards, cash still comes in very hand in Las Vegas. But do your best to bring plenty of cash with you or find your bank’s local branch in the city because the ATM fees are just plain ridiculous. You could pay anywhere for $5 to $10!

DON’T HAIL CABS FROM THE STREET

     No matter how much you flail your arms or scream at passing cab drivers, they will not pull over. Probably because it’s actually illegal! There are number pick up and drop off areas all over the city, and taxi cab passengers must be picked up and dropped off at these locations. Similarly, Uber and Lyft will have a drop-off and pick up zone as well. If you’re not sure how it all works, the concierge at your hotel will be more than happy to call one for you.
