Las Vegas Life: What Not To Do

I’ve recently come across several popular Las Vegas websites featuring articles on what not to do when you are a visitor in Las Vegas. The lists are for the young and adventurous tourist looking for a good time, not really for the permanent Las Vegans. Since I’ve been a Las Vegas real estate resident for over 15 years, I decided to make a “What Not to Do” list for the locals, based on my own experience. Enjoy.

  1. Do not skip the sunscreen just because you tan easily. The Las Vegas sun is intense. One good burn will damage your skin for life.
  2. Do not go to the Las Vegas Strip on weekends, especially in the summer, if you don’t have to.
  3. Do not go see the free outdoor show at TI. It’s a waste of time and a prime location for pickpockets and time share salesmen – people scrunched together with big purses and strollers with no place to go for 15 minutes at a time.
  4. Do not go the DMV with the expectation that you’ll be in and out in a few minutes. Give yourself plenty of time.
  5. Do not try to be a hotel visitor so you can swim in one of the many luxurious pools. Save yourself the embarrassment.
  6. Do not eat at the cheapest buffets in town just to save a little money. Who knows how long the cottage cheese has been out on the salad bar.
  7. Do not wear an adult diaper to avoid getting up from a lucky slot machine. Come on locals. That’s just not right.
  8. Do not water your plants when you feel like it. Follow the water schedule and avoid a lofty fine.
  9. Do not trim your neighbors palm trees just because they hang over into your yard. Ask them first.
  10. Do not park in a numbered parking spot ANYWHERE unless it’s yours.
