'Unspoken Rules about Las Vegas' Straight From Locals Are Game-Changers

Keep these tips in mind if you're going!

Las Vegas is, of course, one of the biggest tourist destinations in the country, if not the world, with how many people travel there each year. But since we think of it more as a vacation spot, we tend to forget that there are people who live there full time. And as with any tourist spot, we can learn a lot from those who have a local's perspective on the area.

If you're planning to visit Vegas soon and want to make sure that you have the best time possible, this TikTok video from @allaboutvegas is necessary viewing. Locals are sharing the "unspoken rules about Las Vegas," and there's a lot of truly helpful information in here. 

Some of these tips seem obvious, but they really aren't. For example, the rule of wearing comfortable shoes seems like something you should be doing anyway while traveling, but it can get really tempting to bust out your best heels when you're headed to dinner and a show. You might end up regretting, it though, with all that walking you're about to do! 

The video also points out a few more important things visitors should know, like the fact that jaywalking, including on the strip, is illegal, and that cabs are not able to stop to pick up passengers on the street, so it'll be easier to get one waiting in front of a hotel. 

One tip is even a bit budget friendly: If you're gambling at a casino, your drinks are free if you wait for a server to come to the table you're sitting at and ask for everyone's drink order. Whoa! 

Like anywhere else, it's so important to do your research before going to Las Vegas to ensure you're prepared for vacation. Don't miss out on something because you didn't do your homework!
