I read and hear that North Vegas is a locals area geared toward cheap gaming, somewhat downbeat at best and unsafe at worst. I used to hear the same about downtown as well until I visited a few years ago and fell in love with the old Vegas feel. I truly think a trip to Vegas can be enhanced by visiting and/or staying in both Strip and downtown areas but what about the north?
I'd like to read some comments by those who have visited or frequent the North Vegas haunts, any gems up there or any bona fide warnings. I'm seeking facts rather than rumors. Can I get a witness?
