    alright amsterdam has pickpockets,new orleans has muggers, vegas has the porn pedlers...these people will do anything to get you to take the hooker guides theyr'e passing out. the mayor has done a lot to stop these annoying little pests,but like all pests they keep coming back.fortunatly you don't have to squash them, just keep walking and say NO!!!! that is unless you want some female company that night???but remember prostitution is NOT legal in clark county,you have to go to parhump or anywhere in northern nevada..the road to reno is littered with brothels!

    Unique Suggestions: avoid the tattoo shops on the strip, they are the biggest ripoffs in town !!! even if the prices are better than where your from look into some local shops, just ask any younger bartender in town. if your into good tattoos i have a guy here in vegas thats amazing, if you need that info email me,or heres the name of the shop.
    paradox studio of dermagraphics, his name is victor.

    Fun Alternatives: avoid the taxi's in vegas, they are all crooks and evil people!!! the prices are horrible, and they take you for a drive !! they will make that fare go sky high!
    if you can rent a car, if you can't do that i guess you'll find out about bad cabbies!

    new york is my favorite place!!!!!!!

    Cabbie recommendations. NEVER...

    Cabbie recommendations. NEVER listen to cabbies. theyre scum and they get kickbacks from directing you from good reputableplaces to crappy dives and holes. Luckily we didnt fall for it, but my drunk buddies almost did. (yes, we drank a bit there...)

    Beware of the Street Vendors...

    Beware of the Street Vendors handing out leaflets. They are a nuisance standing outside a lot of the casinos. They try to push their 'tacky' leaflets at you as you are walking by and although they are not troublesome, it's about time they were outlawed.
