Why Is Las Vegas So Expensive To Visit? (The Truth!)
Las Vegas is one of the top vacation spots in the world and has more entertainment options than you can shake a stick at. But if you’ve done any research on hotels, restaurants and attractions in Las Vegas lately, you may be wondering why it’s become such an expensive place to visit?
Hotels in Las Vegas can really run the gamut. You’ll find everything from low nightly rate hotels, to the most luxurious accommodations found anywhere on the planet! Everything depends on how much money you’re willing to spend.
Food pretty much works the same way in Las Vegas. There are plenty of cheap fast-food joints or buffets where you can get a warm meal for around $10 but if you want anything fancy, don’t expect to spend less than $50 per person.
We often have friends come into town for conventions. After spending a few days paying Strip prices for drinks ($10 and up beers anyone?) we take them to one of our favorite places just off the Strip (Ellis Island Casino & Brewery) for happy hour where the large beers are a much more reasonable $3.65.
