There is a certain energy to Las Vegas that doesn’t exist anywhere else on the planet. It’s generated from the chimes and churn of thousands of slot machines, cheers from tables games, neon bulbs buzzing on the streets, and throngs of people from all over the world gathered for one simple reason, to have fun. At any given moment, a $5 bet can potentially be life changing. Yes, the chances of that happening are slim, but the fact that the opportunity exists at all only amplifies the current that weaves itself through the crowded streets and dimly lit casinos.
If you have never been to Las Vegas, these are the ten things I would absolutely recommend for a first trip. Obviously this isn’t a complete list, and people have different tastes, but if a friend or family member were planning their first Vegas experience, this is what I would tell them.
