Let’s face it, it’s easy to make a bad decision anywhere. However, we understand the fears when it comes to living in Las Vegas and getting caught up in the typical nightlife here. For first-timers, Vegas can be intimidating.
The drinking, gambling, clubs, and parties are easily accessible and we understand the fear of getting caught in this lifestyle if you’re living here 24/7. But, let’s put that to rest.
There is so much more to Las Vegas than the strip. When you move here, you will see how. Until then, let us break it down for you and show you just how little residents get caught up in the Vegas nightlife. Trust us when we say, it is possible to avoid the strip!
Now, let’s be clear. We are NOT bashing the Vegas nightlife or the strip. The strip is a huge part of this city and we absolutely love it. We are just here to share with you that moving to Vegas does not mean you have to party 24/7. In fact, it becomes quite the opposite. The strip, for many residents, becomes a place for birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, etc. There are incredible restaurants we eat at and shows we love attending.
To break it down further, here are the top five things we recommend doing when you move to Vegas to avoid the casino tables.
• Take a drive to Red Rock and take in the beauty of the desert. Explore the trails that the National Conservation Area has to offer. If you’re not into the hiking, take the beautiful 13-mile scenic drive.
• Play at the Pinball Hall of Fame and unleash your inner kid again. This is the world’s largest pinball collection that is open to the public. This non-profit corporation has games that range from the 50’s to the 90’s with a few arcade novelties.
• Visit the Mob Museum, Neon Museum, and the (new) Infinity room at the Bellagio. All three are a must-see here in Vegas and definitely places you will want to recommend to your friends when they come visit.
• If you’re in Vegas, then checking out the Valley of Fire is a must. It is Nevada’s oldest and largest state park with the most incredible views.
• To get a full 360 view of the strip and the surrounding valley, take a ride on the High Roller at the Linq and you will see exactly why the locals love this City.
Give yourself days to experience the typical Las Vegas lifestyle, but remember that there are so many options to fall back on when you feel like you’re getting caught up in the nightlife.
