You can do that in Indianapolis as long as its in the original container.

Prostitution is not legal in Vegas despite popular belief. Legal prostitution in Nevada varies from county to county. Prostitution is not legal in Clark County, Nevada (where Vegas is). There are 11 counties in Nevada with legal prostitution, but the majority of the Nevada population lives in counties where prostituion is not legal.

Of course it happens (illegally), it also happens in LA, Miami, SF, NYC & Other. And maybe prostitution wasn't one of the vices he / she was referring to as legal in Vegas, but just thought I would share..

Vegas is a Disney sort of "hedonism," the kind that's there to generate good ol' clean American $$$s (plus, Vegas is a pale, family friendly imitation of what it once was). I'd say Miami, New Orleans, and Key West are ahead of it in the truest sense.

I really don't see how Miami, NO, and especially Key West are ahead Vegas. Someone mentioned how prostitution in technically illegal in Vegas but it might as well be legal, it's so open and overt. I don't think Vegas is family friendly at all, they tried that for a bit and it didn't really stick.

Outside of the strip area, Vegas is very family oriented imo.
