I agree. But don’t expect the nightlife in philly or nyc to be anything like Vegas. Apples and kumquats.

I'm a single 26 F young professional looking for a city in Jersey with an active nightlife and a lot of young professionals. I'm willing to commute up to an hour. I've heard good things about Hoboken and Jersey City, but they are a 90 minute commute from what it looks like and that seems a bit far. Any recommendation helps!
Just live somewhere in PA between Philly, and Trenton. Philly has plenty of nightlife.

I just curious, I have asked this in the LV subforum, but no one gave me a definitive answer.

Where in LV do people hang out besides the strip which is filled with tourists? Does LV have a Hoboken?

There is also Downtown LV, Fremont Street. Pretty touristy there as well though. A few blocks down you have the Container Park and the surrounding area which is maybe a little more “local.”

philly has enough


vegas is just times square with bathrooms


AC could pull it off if they actually put some effort in cleaning the island up.

Maybe pomegranates. There are plenty of things to see and do, but they are all over the place in seeds and sections. There's no one stop shopping like in Las Vegas.

Actually one of the only cities in America that can compare to Vegas in terms of nightlife is probably NYC. Miami is the other.
