Yes, I am a Vegas fanatic. Yes I have been to Vegas 20 times since I turned 21 seven years ago. Yes, that means that I have experienced a lot of Las Vegas. Yes, I write a blog on Las Vegas for fun. Yes, I know what’s fun for me to do in Las Vegas. No, I’m not going to list off things you should do in Vegas.
You know what I’m talking about. It’s the person in your office who knows you love Las Vegas or it’s the friend of a friend who is going to Las Vegas for the first time in a while (or ever). They know you’re into the city and ask, “what should I do there?”
That question could not be more annoying. There are a million things to do in Las Vegas that cater to almost any palate. What I like about visiting Las Vegas may not be the same things you like. That’s what makes Las Vegas great. It appeals to a wide array of people. I may have been there a lot, but don’t ask me generically what do to there.
If you want my advice, ask a specific question. Good things to ask are “What’s a good show that is a bit off the beaten path?” or “Where can I get a great steak” or “Where can I find low blackjack minimums”. Those are questions that someone who has been to Vegas a lot can answer. Or if you ask me about nightclubs I can politely tell you that I’ve never been to any of them.
The fact is that there are a million things that are fun in Vegas. If you have something specific you are looking for, I’m glad to draw upon my experiences. But that being said, I always respond to generic questions the same way: “What makes Vegas great is that each person experiences it differently, do what interests you, I promise it will be awesome”. However, anytime you want specific advice, I’m your guy.
