A tourist place that has a lot to do away from the resort area but not many tourists actually do.
Wow, I didn't realize Honolulu was so much like Las Vegas.

A place where residents get pissed at the tourists taking all the space at resturants,stores,and most of all,parking space!

But still,this place isn't bad just because what people say "there is a lot of hookers and drunks." Las Vegas is actually a great,beautiful place. Don't believe the people who hate the place. They probably hate it because they lost all their money on some slot machine in the MGM.
Person 1:Hey,want to go to Vegas?
Person 2:Hell yeah!
Person 3: Las Vegas is a bad place!
Person 1 and 2:Shut up!
Person 3:Why?
Person 1: Because you're a pissy guy who probably lost all their money while gambling.
Person 3: You're right. D:

A heavenly place filled with bright lights, famous headliners, friendly lap dances from surgically augmented ladies.
Mark and Alex took their cousin Jimmy for his 21st birthday to get some tasty Las Vegas lap dances.

A city that will soon take over Los Angelees as the capital of the west coast.

A city of murder,mayhem and chaos.The city that never sleeps is one of the biggest cities in the United States.Lined at the center of it all is the strip.A place of gambling and partying.Then you got the North side, the part of Vegas thats ghetto, the nickname of the north side is the "Dumps" or "northtown".The West and east sides are the middle class parts of Vegas.The South side of Vegas is the richest neighborhood in Las Vegas,nickenamed ""so high" which stands for "southern highlands" all in all vegas is a great city and if your a scrub its fucking paradise.
Vegas also has other nicknames such as Las Vicious, V-Town, and of course Sin City.
My trip to vicious was fucking crazy homie ,can't wait to go back. I love Las Vegas

A city in the middle of the desert, known for gambling, quickie weddings and intense heat. A city where you can get anything at any time of day or night. Native Las Vegans don't do well outside of the city, as they are used to having everything open 24/7.
A closed sign infuriates them.
Las Vegas is home to one of the west coast's biggest populations of meth users.
I lived in Las Vegas, until the meth lab in the apartment next door blew up and killed us all.

I've lived in Vegas almost all my life, so this is what Vegas really is .
It's hot . Really, really hot . It doesn't really get cold in the winter . It barely ever rains .

Vegas is stereotyped . People see Vegas for the lights, clubs, and strippers . That makes up little of Vegas . Vegas is ghetto and full of gangs . Be careful who you talk to, or be prepared for a shootout . People in Vegas tend to have no common sense, and many are ratchets .

There's long term projects that nobody ever finishes . Like Lake Mead . It's never NOT under construction . Vegas is an ugly place .

There's no type of fun things to do for children under the age of 18 . There's one measly indoor amusement park called The Adventure Dome, and the rides get boring, and nobody wants to pay almost $30 to ride the same few rides over and over again . This is probably the leading cause of increasing gangs . True story .
*Going out of town*
Person ; "Oh my gosh, you live in Las Vegas? How cool!
Me ; Nah, not really. It's hot and there's nothing fun to do .
