Tips on What Not to Do in Sin City

Everyone should travel to Las Vegas at least to see what this “Sin City” is. This particular strip is famous for its casinos, clubs, and wild night parties worldwide. It is an incredible experience for those who know how to hold their liquor and their wits. Nevertheless, this can be an overwhelming experience and if you are not cautious you may have to tread the wrong side of the famous saying of this city, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.”

In order to experience the right kind of fun in Vegas, keep these points in mind.

  • Do not gamble at the airport no matter how attracted you are to the lights and sounds of slot machines greeting you as you land. Do not be drawn to “just one spin” catnip because in Vegas it does not exist. But mostly because the machines at the airport are just ripping you off and are not compliant with the Nevada Gaming Commission guidelines so they offer the lowest payout percentages.
  • The universal rule of hotel lodgings is applicable here that you never touch the mini bar unless you are too rich to care. You might also want to watch out for the complimentary looking bottles of water by the TV.
  • The foremost rule of traveling is to put your safety first. So, say no the strangers and their very generous and very kind offers of drinks or a fine dinner. Leaving the date to pay for the food by excusing to go to the restroom and skip out of the back door is a very common scam.
  • If you are staying at a luxury hotel, do find out what kind of entertainment they are offering, Sometimes, it’s exactly what you want, and you don’t even have to go out looking for it. The in-house entertainment at Tuscany Las Vegas is an evening well spent especially if you get to catch their hits like the Rat Pack Show.
  • Do not eat on an empty stomach or get too drunk to have impaired judgment or you will be taken advantage of and/or robbed blind. Always keep an eye on your drink.
  • Never violate the CCO 12.33.010. It is also known as the Clark County Code for any disorderly conduct. It is a major pitfall for tourists when they get drunk or are goaded into it. This violation is considered as top offence besides jaywalking. Inciting a fight, using obscene language or disturbing the peace are all considered as punishable crimes.
  • The Drag game in Vegas is beyond your imagination. So, whatever you do, do not skip out on catching a show. Google for some great events and just be mindfully respectful of the culture.

Do not get discouraged by these precautions, just make them a part of your travel as the acceptable behaviors trend that you would be following if you were travelling to a culturally different country.  Always remember to enjoy yourself but stay cautious.
