Vacationing In Las Vegas - Be Careful
Most people visiting Las Vegas only visit hotels on the strip, but there is life beyond that narrow haven that vacationers never see.
Life Outside the Strip
Since Las Vegas is a town that never sleeps, it is also a town where people work and commute all hours of the day and night.
Once you wander away from the strip you will see a city that looks like most any other city. Fast food restaurants, such as McDonalds and Burger King, are scattered all over the Las Vegas valley.
Drug stores, shopping malls, and gas stations are conveniently located throughout the city, just as you would see in any other city. You would never know you were in the middle of the dessert.
But since this is a 24/7, wildcat, tourist attraction type of town you do have a higher concentrated populous that likes to drink, party, and sometimes drive with reckless abandon.
Individuals or families can have a great time in Las Vegas and there's plenty to see and do, but the caveat we pass on is - be careful...be on the defensive.
Here's a picture after a late night accident where the driver behind this expedition fell asleep and plowed right through the tailgate door. Accidents like this are more prevalent in Las Vegas because of the environment. A town where 24 hour gambling, drinking, and employment exists can expect to harbor a higher number of unusual accidents; visitors must take note of this and be on the defensive when visiting Las Vegas.
Traffic on the strip can get very congested and the distractions are many. When you combine all these elements together you can see how easy it is to become entangled in a car accident. It's almost advisable to take a taxi or the strip trolley if you plan to do sight seeing.
