Everywhere you go on the strip there are baseball cards of nude women who are available to be called to your room to "strip" for a fee. They hand these out to anyone who will take one (even kids) on the street and they line the bridges and fences with them.
Unique Suggestions Try to keep your children away from the people handing out the cards and brochures out.
Fun Alternatives No alternative.
Don't ask a taxi driver to take you to a stripclub; you'll get screwed big time! Talk to a bartender or concierge and have a destination in mind before you jump into a cab. Don't be embarassed; this is Vegas!!
Basically realize that anything that sounds 'Too Good to Be True' - IS! You will get offered various scams by various people during your stay, and hawkers on the street will constantly try to stop you or put flyers into your hands. If you are egotistical enough to think you are somehow 'special' to them, and will win whatever they are offering, you will get taken. Realize you are the 400,000th tourist they have spoken to that day, one of many there who they will try to con in Vegas. No need to spend it on really wasteful rubbish like street scam artists who will only leave you with a bad taste in your mouth.
Unique Suggestions Can't be made bearable.
Fun Alternatives Walk past them or pretend you don't speak English.
Nudity exposure! That's right. If you travel to Vegas with children, watch out for people on the street handing out cards with naked women on them!
Unique Suggestions Try not to bring the kids to this city. While it can be a great entertainment for some, it can be a disappointing experience for children. There are numerous strip joints and bars in Vegas where people are exposed to nudity. I think there are also bordellos in Vegas. These places are trying to advertise them selves with cards. These cards have the name of the place, phone number and a color picture of a naked or half naked woman.
Fun Alternatives Do not bring children to Vegas. Not only the nudity but as soon as you walk into a hotel or a gas station, or any other public place, you have to watch out for slots and other gambling devices. Children are not allowed near these machines.
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!
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 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.
