Its not over 3mil a day. More 2.5mil a day. Of course you might be right if you count all the illegals.

Nah - 2.4 million locals.

Visitors is 39.1 million who stay 3.6 days each which comes to 386,000 visitor nights

So roughly 2.8 million daily population.

I confused the state population with clark county population.
BUT I did not confuse the tourism numbers.
As you can see almost 50 million flew in. That does not count the millions that drove in from California, Utah, Arizona, and other states.
That's close enough to a million to call it.

Nope again. that number includes locals traveling and other travelers who do not stop here. There are 47 million room nights rented. At two guests per room that gives us 94 million visitor nights or 257,000 per night.

There are lots of precise numbers on all this from the Convention and Visitors Authority...

Air bnb....
Relatives....
Camping....

You don't typically have just 2 people in an air bnb. They usually have 6 or 8 per house.
Whole families show up at relatives houses.
Whole families go to hotels.
Whole families go camping.
2 couples will often share a room.


But anyway. I'm done with this. It doesn't matter. We can all agree that there's a whole lot of people in vegas.

2. The police and other helicopters are non-stop. I didnít realize I was moving to Iraq.

3. If you donít live in Summerlin or Henderson, locals and especially people on this forum will say itís ghetto.

4. People are slightly friendly. Itís not odd for a person to strike up conversation while waiting in line at the grocery store.

5. We moved here for my husband to work at a restaurant on the strip and the opening keeps getting pushed back. That being said, he is working at local places til it does. He is a hibachi chef, and the tips are a joke. We recently got transferred to a restaurant at the Lakes and his tips dropped by 75% as opposed to the east or ďghettoĒ side of town. People stroll up in Ferrariís and stiff him. What a Joke. How come the majority of Las Vegans (that appear wealthy) donít tip?

6. Now that the hell summer is over, the weather is pleasant and we are enjoying it.

7. Never run out of places to eat or shop- we like that.

8. News stories on the daily displaying pretty heavy crime. We moved from Albuquerque so we are used to that aspect but it almost seems more intense here or atleast many of the crimes seem more brutal and strange.

9. The News is always on. More hours of news than anywhere Iíve lived. Maybe itís making me paranoid.

10. The vibes in general just seem to be low at most places. I think Vegas has a real dark cloud hanging over it. But many nice people as well.

Conclusion: itís not bad enough that I want to pack up and move but we will finish our task and stack money til my kids start school (2 years away) and likely be outta here. Not a forever home but not bad enough to make me run away immediately either. It seems to have a ton of potential but too many criminals and idiots muddying it up. Maybe thatís every where nowadays?

Be the change you want to see. 😘
I have to ask you, are you a renter or do you own? What do you think of the prices in LV?

A bad day in Vegas is better than California anytime.

I agree with the drivers, I have seen people drive perpendicular to traffic here. Originally from the San Bernardino area of SoCal, I'm accustomed to distracted, uncaring drivers. It does seem more like a big city here. It does have a hustle feel to it, even in 7-11 stores, gas stations, etc. There are some down to earth, friendly people though. You will find a few....
