Avoid strip clubs & prostitutes

If you came to Vegas to pick up a prostitute, you should have done your research. PROSTITUTION IS ILLEGAL IN CLARK COUNT INCLUDING LAS VEGAS. I saw a person get arrested for prostitution who thought that brothels are in Vegas and prostitution is legal. Prostitutes will even hang out in hotel lobbies around 11 pm and you may think it is legal since hotel security or the police don't ask them to leave or get arrested. The nearest brothel to Vegas in in Pahrump which is 50 miles away! If you decide to go to a brothel remember the cab driver or complimentary Limo driver receive portions from you activities at a brothel.
Watch out for the "gentlemen clubs" such as the Spearmint Rhino and Sapphire. These clubs offer a free limo but when you arrive, you are constantly hustled by ladies wanting to give you a lap dance once you walk in the door before you even see other strippers. Lap dances aren't cheap! You could end up spending thousands and in the end you have to tip not only the dancer but also the administration and limo driver. Vegas strip clubs seem to be different to you traditional strip club. Normally you can tip dancers and if you want a lap dance with a particular woman, you can request one. In Vegas it seems all strip clubs have women approach you as you enter the door and when trying to enjoy watching instead of having a lap dance. Strip clubs in Vegas seem to operate like a brothel where the women hardly get anything as the tip goes to the limo driver and others too.

Venders handing out pornographic pamplets

They will place the pamplet in your face. Don't take it, you will be chased by others trying to hand you their pamplets.

Be careful where you purchase show tickets.

A lot of venders will be near ticket office selling free or reduced tickets as part of some time share. Some have been known to sell fake tickets. If you want to see a show, go directly to the ticket office.
