City of sin, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas… right? Well, that’s not always the case, and there are a few things you should avoid while you’re visiting The Strip. From overpriced drinks to paying full price for tickets, here are the 5 things you should avoid in Las Vegas!

Things to avoid in Las Vegas include over paying for drinks

1. Overpaying For Drinks | Things To Avoid In Las Vegas

Overpaying for drinks in Las Vegas is not fun! If you’re not careful, you could easily spend $100+ on drinks in one night. Stick to buying drinks at the bar or from a liquor store. Some of the best places in Las Vegas to buy cheap drinks are at the Fremont Street Experience, Atomic Liquors, and convenience stores like Circle K or CVS. If you really want to enjoy yourself without breaking the bank, head over downtown Las Vegas. There are plenty of clubs and casinos there that offer great deals on cocktails – I guarantee your drink will be cheaper than what they cost at themed bars around The Strip!

Here is one thing to always avoid, never take out cash at a casino ATM – the fees are ridiculous. Most casinos charge anywhere from $7.99-$9.99 per transaction (this adds up quickly and is not cute).

5. Missing Out on Free Entertainment | Things To Avoid In Las Vegas

Las Vegas is expensive – obviously! Try to avoid paying money for absolutely everything, especially shows. Big Elvis show at Harrah’s Piano Bar (Thurs – Fri at 2 pm and 5 pm) is a free show that pays tribute to the King of Rock n Roll. Lake of Dreams at the Wynn Las Vegas is another free show that’s worth the visit (Shows run nightly every half hour from dusk until 11:30 pm). In conclusion, just because some shows are free doesn’t mean they’re “bad” or not worth seeing. If anything, you should plan some free attractions in your plans – your wallet will thank you later!
