  • Tipping / Money Matters

    Las Vegas Local Customs

    If you are sitting at the machines or the tables and the waitress comes and asks you if you would like a drink don't forget to tip her. Yes the drinks may be free but if you don't tip the waitress she won't come back, but if you tip her one dollar for each drink she will return.

    Las Vegas Local Customs

    When I play poker, I always tip the dealer $1 if I win. $2 if it's a huge pot. They work a very monotonous job. And if you believe in luck, you don't want to mess it up! Also as a side note, drinks are free at some casinos. Tip the waitress too. They have tough jobs as well.

    The neighborhood of Henderson, about 15 minutes drive from the strip, is very quiet and very beautiful. All the houses are painted the same and the roofs are similar all throughout. My father-in-law's house is in Henderson. He bought the house a few years back and moved to Las Vegas from Hawaii because of his illness. He loves his house and his...

    Las Vegas Local Customs

    When planning a trip to Las Vegas, most people don't think of nature or natural settings, but after going there at least two times a year for many years I began to spend some of my time exploring the other things to see and do while in Nevada and so close to Arizona. Las Vegas offers more than gambling, inexpensive buffets and live floor...

  • Weddings

    Las Vegas Local Customs

    One reason that Las Vegas became a marriage location was due to the ease of obtaining a license at all hours of the day and night. The lack of a waiting period, no blood tests, and the need for only one witness add to the attraction of using LV as a place to get hitched. But as August 30, 2006, the marriage bureau plans to close its all-night...

    Prostitution is legal in the US only in certain counties of Nevada. It is illegal in the two most populous counties even here though - Washoe (Reno) and Clark (Las Vegas). In 12 of the other counties, prostitution is operated quietly under the watchful eye of the community. The more lenient viewpoint towards the world's oldest profession arises out...

  • Joshua Trees

    The Mojave Desert is home to the Joshua tree. I took this picture not too far from Beatty on highway 95. While I was at the gas station, a group of young motorcyclists from Oregon were stopped working on one of their bikes. The one man said, "I just love the desert. I started getting all misty-eyed when I saw the Joshua trees." He wasn't from...

    Tips on tipping: Because Vegas is a service-based city, tipping is a big, big deal. Just ask the IRS. You may not be sure how much to tip and when, so here's a quick rundown. Bellmen: They usually receive $1 a bag, but an extra tip is suggested if you ask them to make show reservations or if they help you with taxis, etc. Valet parketing...

    If you're prejudiced, watch yourself. People there are very open minded. If you're opinionated or egotistical, watch your attitude. They don't mind an opinion, but don't push. People from all walks of life live in Nevada and visit. Just be friendly and see how the other people interact. Also, don't be afraid to ask for directions. You don't want to...
