Myths and Misconceptions of Las Vegas

July 22, 2016

There are a lot of misconceptions that come along with a town the bears the nickname Sin City. So we’re here to put to some of the myths to rest.

Myth: You have to be 21+ to enjoy yourself in Las Vegas.

Truth: While you must be 21+ to drink and gamble, having a good time in Las Vegas has no age limit. There are plenty of things to do, even for families. At Silverton Casino we have mermaid shows, stingray feedings, a pool to enjoy the sunshine, and an ever growing list of all ages shows at Veil Pavilion just to name a few.

Myth: Everyone lives in casinos.

Truth: Absolutely not. Unless you’re a Vegas headliner, you probably live in one of the many wonderful communities that Southern Nevada has to offer. In fact, there are some amazing parks, hiking trails and recreational centers throughout these communities that are worth a visit themselves.

Myth: What happens here, stays here.

Truth: Two words: Social media. What happens here will more than likely end up on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat, or a cocktail of a little of each.  Much like the rest of the world, Las Vegas is not immune to the windows of the Internet peeping in on all the fun being had.

Myth:  Everything worth seeing is on The Strip.

Truth: Any Las Vegas local would strongly disagree with this statement. There are plenty of fun things to do and see all over the Las Vegas valley that doesn’t require a Las Vegas Boulevard address. For example, Downtown Las Vegas has the exciting Fremont Street Experience and the Las Vegas Arts District that are always worth a visit.  Venture away from the hype of The Strip and visit local casinos to get a real taste of Las Vegas.
