I have lived in Las Vegas all my life, so get ready:
There is a big difference between the strip and the rest of Las Vegas (or at least the Eastern Side) The strip is beautiful, but most of the residents here don't go down there very often. We used to have field trips and go down to some of the casinos, but thanks to the economic crisis, the government has cut out ALL field trips for public schools. Our teachers are underpaid, our schools waste our money when we should be spending it on education, and most of our schools are people who are illegal from Mexico.

However, we do have great magnet schools here in Vegas. If you are into perfoming arts, LVA is for you! Our magnet schools are excellent programs.

Almost everything is open 24/7 or open till like midnight. However, almost all of our movie theaters are in casinos (which i sometimes a problem for younger kids) and we only have 1 miniature golf course in the Adventuredome at Circus Circus Casino.

It's very hot here during summer, so bring lots of water. If you are going to the strip, bring extra cash. Things can get pricey up here. Just remeber there is more to Vegas than Strippers and gambling.
PS BEST BUFFETS EVER!
Tourist: Your city is amazing!
Resident: Hahaha well than obviously you haven't seen Las Vegas' education!

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 supermassive black hole that was moved from the center of the galaxy to right smack dab in the middle of the desert in nevada. It's gravitational force is so strong that nothng, not even your paycheck can escape its pull. As more of your money falls into the event horizon, vegas's mass grows ever larger.
Money caught, withen the gravitional pull of las vegas, gives off x-rays, detectable as debt here on earth, as it spirals down to oblivion.
