Though Vegas is famously referred to as Sin City, and rightly so, the city can also be admired for its architectural feats and incredible design. Las Vegas is the only place in the world where you can see an Egyptian pyramid, the Eiffel Tower, and a romantic castle all on one street. Everywhere you look, you can see lights, especially on the Strip; sometimes it's easy to forget to turn your headlights on because the place is so well-lit. To fully appreciate the breathtaking view, fly into the city at night or visit the top of the Stratosphere Hotel.
Many think that Vegas locals are wild and crazy people who close the nightclubs down and keep the drinks flowing. To the surprise of many, most Las Vegans are not Strip junkies like many out-of-towners seem to think; it's the tourists who keep the city's economy strong. With the freeways, all the Strip's offerings are merely a five- to twenty-five-minute drive away. The downside of living in Las Vegas is that it is a tourist town, and when people are on vacation, many tend to leave their manners at home. Jaywalking is expected, and many tourists are self-centered and rude, which is especially common when you work at the shows or in retail. However, with the city's occupants changing constantly, there are also many fun and interesting people to meet and new things to learn.
