Okay. I hear so many people talk about Vegas. Normally, Vegas would not have been at the top of my list for travel. I have never had any interest, whatsoever in traveling to Las Vegas. However, through work, I had the opportunity to visit Las Vegas. So I did. And I have no desire to go back. Why? In my own personal opinion, Las Vegas is one of those towns that, much like New York, oversells and under delivers. I do not think they can justify the price of anything they try to sell there, and I do not think that they offer much.
Here are some of my true thoughts and why I think Las Vegas is a waste of money and so not worth your time.
- Food on the Las Vegas strip is far too pricey and not as good as you would think. I ate quite a bit of food on the strip. I wanted to sample everything. I had everything from fish tacos (I love fish tacos) to pasta to the fancy lobster and steak. And it was okay, but nothing to rave about.
- Alcohol is over priced
I learned this the hard way when I decided to order a glass-a glass of wine. I cross-referenced it online. I damn near payed $17.00 for a glass of wine. And the glass of wine was not even that good. What on Earth was I thinking? $17.00 for a glass of wine?? No thank you. They charge that price just because they can. I’m straight with that.
- It’s really just for gamblers.
Lined, casino after casino. It’s all just for gamblers. And with wishful thinking, I thought that maybe I would win some money here and there. I was so very wrong. That was not the case. I lost more money than I won, even when I won a few extra bucks on the slot machines
- Las Vegas is all show
Seriously, there are so many shows that you can see while you are in Vegas. Some are excellent. I saw Britney Spears. I have been a fan of Britney since I was in grade school. I would say that I am a fucking devoted fan. But even the shows are expensive. Probably more expensive than New York. I am not having it.
