Las Vegas is an internationally-renowned major resort city known primarily for gambling, shopping, fine dining, and nightlife and is the leading financial, commercial, and cultural center of Southern Nevada. It’s too overrated that it seems like wherever you look on the Internet there’s a list of things to do in Las Vegas. It’s important to have such a list as you plan your trip to Las Vegas. Equally important is a list of things NOT TO DO as you plan or when you get to Las Vegas.
In this article we gathered some of the 5 Things You Shouldn’t Do in Las Vegas!
1. Place To Stay
Do not rent a house because it’s banned. Get a hotel room instead. But, never book a hotel room without checking and understanding the hotel’s daily resort fee. When you say resort fee, it means usage of fitness center, local telephone calls, internet access, etc.
Do you know why? Most Las Vegas hotels impose this fees as mandatory and if you are not aware, you’ll be charged for this daily.
If you are wondering why renting a house is banded, well, because it’s business. Hotels want tourists to spend money on their hotels instead of properties.
Generally speaking, smoking is permitted on the casino floor in most resorts, in some guest rooms, and in bars that don’t serve food. But, please be aware that smoking is not permitted in public areas such as restaurants, hotel lobbies, the Las Vegas Convention Center concourse areas, or McCarran International Airport.
We know this a common habit to some of us and also this has always been a part of DO NOT lists in other top visited countries. But, seriously, do not jaywalk in Las Vegas or should I say in the US. Particularly, jaywalking in Las Vegas is illegal and extremely dangerous. If you are caught jaywalking, you will be cited. The minimum fine is $350.
Do not use ATM machines. Though this might look like a convenient way to get cash when you need it, there is a high price to pay for that convenience. Casino ATMs charge a fee between $3.50 to $6.00 in addition to any fees your bank charges.
5. Clark County Code: CCO 12.33.010
Educate yourself about Clark County Code: CCO 12.33.010 before you get to Las Vegas and do not violate it. Just because you are in Vegas doesn’t mean there are no laws. By the time most tourists find out about the local laws, it’s a bit too late.
This has been the most violated law being done by a tourists in Las Vegas. What makes someone constitute disorderly conduct? Here are the following:
a) Participate in a fight;
b) Challenge another person to a fight;
c) Use profane, indecent or obscene language in addressing another person;
d) Commit a breach of peace;
e) Incite a disturbance;
f) Interfere with, annoy, accost or harass any other person which conduct by its nature would tend to incite a disturbance.
The high-concentration areas of Las Vegas are among the safest places for visitors in the world. Security is tight, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take the same precautions that you would at home.
Be aware of your surroundings and stay away from threatening situations. If gaming, keep an eye on your purse, change bucket, or chips. If there is an incident, police and security personnel are generally highly visible.
