Does it Kill the 'Vibe'?
It is quite hard to picture such an 'adult playground' like Vegas being the home to a couple hundred thousand people. What? Vegas is sustainable for life? Believe it or not, people do actually live there. I'm sure many people given the opportunity to live there would be fairly excited. In a fast-paced world consisting of all-you-can-eat buffets and endless activities, who could even imagine being bored?
Well, for locals, it does happen. Most locals are familiar with the city scene, and its effect on people. The locals who keep their smarts about city life are the most successful. By successful, I mean they aren't a drug and/or gambling addict who lost everything, and now live under the freeway. It's quite a sad fate most naive Las Vegas locals face, but its rather expected.
This all seems like common sense to most people I assume or more rather, hope so. Street smarts, homie. So what would these 'successful' locals do for fun in the city that never sleeps? Imagine that, the city of Las Vegas at your fingertips. With the right connections and cash amount, just about anything is possible. The world is now your playground.
This is all fine and dandy, yes, but after a while it becomes an ordinary thing. I mean after a while, wouldn't Las Vegas boulevard lose its magic? Wouldn't the noises of the city just turn into background noise? Yes. Yes it does.
Don't get me wrong, most folks enjoy the sights of the city, but locals tend to just go about their daily lives... and somehow surviving the harsh Nevada summers. Local families seem to enjoy more 'recreational' activities, and live a fairly normal life. Especially after living in a 'not-so-normal' environment.
There are others though, who like anyone anywhere else, are looking for their break to leave the area. Sometimes Vegas isn't a suitable place for families with kids, especially with Vegas being obviously 'adult themed'.
Not only that, but the city's crime rates are pretty damn high. Hell, I wouldn't want to raise any kids there myself! The city life isn't for everyone, and living in an environment such as that kind of takes away from the magic of the city.
Tourists are lucky I suppose. They only have to deal with Las Vegas for a short time, and hopefully aren't too terribly down on their luck during the stay. But in all honesty, if anyone is going to decide and call Las Vegas a home, they should make sure and do their research a bit first. Sometimes the fast-paced lifestyle is a little too fast-paced.
