Vegas is great, gambling, good food, lots of guns, lots of beautiful scenery around, lots of pretty girls/strippers/escorts, lots of cheap housing (if you come from NYC, California), etc, etc.

3 I'll take my "ghetto" over Summerlin or methderson any day.
4 Grow a rad beard. That keeps people away. At least for me.
5 You don't get wealthy giving away money.
6 the weather is great here most of the year.
7 Yup
8 I don't have cable and don't watch tv. I recommend doing the same.
9 See number 8
10 I don't think it's a low vibe. Vegas is a hustle town. You have to hustle. They're worn down from hustling but better off than they would be elsewhere.

Get real jobs and you can make real money out here and afford one hell of a good life.


I own an e-commerce business so my income isnít dependent on where I live and my husband makes damn good money being a sushi and hibachi chef- . Our livelihoods are not in any way dependent on tips- it was just an observation about the ďrichĒ side of town. But at the right place tips can vary upwards of $3-500 a night on top of a great salary. If thatís not real enough *shrug* lol- itís plenty for me. Shame on you for saying a chef or any other thing isnít a real job.

Tipping someone for a service isnít giving a way money- itís paying for a service.

My life is quite financially comfortable. Thanks for the tip though. 👌🏻

Agreed!! I have lived in Phoenix and didnít find it nearly as hard to tolerate as Austin and Cincinnati in the summers. Dry heat is so much more tolerable!

I lived in Yuma, AZ for four years....I went to Phoenix on the weekends because it was cooler!

As for helicopters....they're mostly tourist flights.

Red light runners are a problem overall but most of the bad drivers are around the strip... they have out of state plates and are probably drunk or too distracted by the pretty lights...or both.

Be the change you want to see. 😘
Everyone will have different comments about certain things, but this right here is Vegas in a nutshell. At least 80% of the people around will leave at some point. Even the people who say I love it have the side comment but if I could go to X maybe I'd leave. Eventually they go to X or maybe some other place. Few stay forever, it's a town to seize opportunities, make some money and then go somewhere else. Nothing wrong with seeing it that way.

We are renting as we werenít sure it would be a permanent move but rent and housing costs seem very low in comparison to many places we looked at. Food, gas, and utilities are a bit higher than Albuquerque but in the chef related field, the earning potential is higher. We are renting our house in NM for $1250 and renting in Vegas for $1350 and they are similar sizes, so not a bad jump.

I never said that being a chef wasn't a real job. I merely stated that if you get real jobs out here you'll make it just fine. Union chefs out here make 18 an hour. That's pretty real.

The wealthy tipping comment is based on reality. Wealthy people tend not to tip. It's a fact of life. It's part of the reason they get wealthy.

As for me, I tip when appropriate.

I live in the tropics, it is like a humidor, running the a.c. now, but even in heat island like Bangkok, the heat is never life threatening like Phoenix. You don't see the cars breaking down, like Phoenix, either.
