The annoying peddlers blocking walkways on strip

Those peddlers that encroach on couples, families , and individuals space is a major downer. Also the walkways are often closed off "for construction " . Consequently, the vacation attraction of Las Vegas strip has been greatly diminished. LakeTahoe and Reno is more enjoyable for recreation , entertainment as well as gambling.

I agree 100% with your first sentence. I will never know about Tahoe and Reno as I would never even consider that over Vegas.

So you felt the need to come on a Vegas forum and tell us all 2 other places would be better for us-clever stuff.

I wonder what the world did before walkways?

I have encountered NOTHING in Vegas that inspires me to instead go to Reno or Tahoe. Different strokes for different folks, but the things that make Vegas unique, as opposed to "just a gambling town" is what draws me. I could gamble nearly anywhere these days, but only Vegas will ever be Vegas

I hate those peddlers but would always take Vegas over the others.

Those peddlers are annoying, but easy enough to ignore. However, one time there was a really aggressive guy trying to get people to go to a timeshare. We were kind of stopped on the sidewalk due to a large crowd and he came right up to us and started his prepared speech. i looked him in the eye and said NO Thank You and started to walk away. He then proceeded to yell into the crowd about how rude people are and that my husband must be having a horrible time on vacation! WTH!!! I actually turned around and told him that our vacation would be much better if people like him did not insist on badgering people after they said NO.

Seriously? How hard is to just ignore them? I laugh at the attempts some make and it's funny watching those cards just fall to the ground. I act as if I don't understand them lol. I would NEVER consider an alternative unless it contained all the same rules, sights and action. There are little comparisons to my knowledge.

Hi

I went to Reno and Tahoe the other year. I have no wish to return, but I am returning to Las vegas. So not everyone thinks the same as you.

Here is what you should have typed.

LakeTahoe and Reno are more enjoyable for recreation and entertainment as well as gambling.

I guess the Northern Nevada Tourist board did NOT list proficiency in English as a requirement for hiring of interns this year.

At least Las Vegas has construction. When was the last time a Tahoe or Reno casino was built or remodeled??
