Take a drink in a cab - Ok, we admit, we may be guilty of breaking this law. But technically, if you have a giant smoothie from Fat Tuesdays and want to cab it up to Fremont Street, you are technically not allowed to have that drink in the cab. Along the same lines, we also wish we could take our drink through The Crystals mall or take a 40 oz of Mickeys into Encore (yes we have tried that, yes It did not end well).
Put coins in a slot machine - We loved Ticket In Ticket Out (TITO) machines when they were first introduced, but some of the fun of slots were the clunking of the coins. Now, you can’t find any machines that take coins, let alone disperse them. So all you Vegas Virgins who were saving your quarters, get those turned into dollars before you leave town.
Take pictures inside casinos - A lot of Strip properties do not want you taking pictures on the casino floor. Some places enforce it more than others, but at any given moment you are risking having your camera confiscated. Even S. Yume on Flickr who snapped the shot at the top of this story said they had a security guard breathing down their neck. We love taking pictures of great video poker hands or slot pulls, so if you are anything like us, take a look around before you take that shot.
There are a lot of things that are allowed on the Las Vegas Strip so you can have a good time, but these are just some things we wish we could do. We should also post that (while it’s not of interest to us) prostitution is NOT legal in Las Vegas. (No matter if you can search for some companionship from your hotel lobby.) Nobody wants to spend their Las Vegas vacation in jail, so we point that out as a little bonus for your read.
Is there anything you wish you could do in Las Vegas? Let us know in the comments below.
