10 reasons why a young person should visit Vegas, and 10 reasons to stay away

I've never been to Vegas, and don't care to visit, so take this with a grain of salt.
  1. 1.
    Have some fun gambling when you don't have enough money to really "lose" anything.
  2. 2.
    There are good restaurants there.
  3. 3.
    Vacation and that "what happens in Vegas" ad campaign mean it's probably not too tough to pick up girls at night clubs.
  4. 4.
    Visit the old casinos where the less affluent folks are, and hear some cool stories.
  5. 5.
    See some great shows, DJs, and bands for reasonable prices in a lot of cases. Or for way more than it costs to see those same shows closer to home. Depends.
  6. 6.
    Just to say you went.
  7. 7.
    Because you can.
  8. 8.
    Because it's fun to visit the middle of the desert when it's 100+ degrees, to stay in air conditioned buildings without clocks.
  9. 9.
    Legal prostitution (for those with some kink and willingness to pay for it).
  10. 10.
    To people watch.
  11. 11.
    Because it is an artificial town.
  12. 12.
    Prices are outrageous for anything nice because tourism is the sole reason for the place.
  13. 13.
    Great DJs play weak sets because the bottle service crowd wants to hear the current top 40 and nothing else.
  14. 14.
    I don't want to see Britney Spears anyway...
  15. 15.
    Gambling seems like a weird way to get thrills. And an easy way to lose all of your money.
  16. 16.
    It's in the middle of the desert! You wouldn't go there for any other reason.
  17. 17.
    Sleep is underrated.
  18. 18.
    You never know if the girl you meet is actually interested or is a pro.
  19. 19.
    It's super duper crowded.
  20. 20.
    It's lit up. Way too lit up. Flashing lights everywhere.
