Richard asks…

When planning a trip to Las Vegas what are some helpful tips?

I’m looking for an or some internet sites that would help me plan my first trip to Vegas. A package deal (flight/hotel) in September.

Administrator answers:

Hard to answer your question without knowing how long you will say, what kind of budget and what your areas of interest are. Some people fly to Vegas and sit in front of a slot machine 12 hours a day for two days and then leave. Others want pools, shows, dining, clubbing, tours etc. Some want only fast food others want fine dining. Some want adult shows some family friendly shows.

So, the best I can do for you is provied this link. Hope it helps. I could provide more specific information if you gave more details.

Generic tips: Get a hotel on the Strip preferably near middle or Southern end. It will save a lot of transportation cost and shoe-leather. The weather is hot and dry. People with sinus conditions and people with contact lenses will need to get moisturizing products for comfort. While it is hot out it is well air conditioned indoors. Be prepared with something to cover the shoulders if you are sensitve to cold.
If you intend to see any of the Top Production shows or any Headliners, get your tickets before going to Vegas. If you intend to dine at any fine restaruants, you will need a reservation. Your hotel concierge can help you.

If you use the hotel pool, you need your hotel key to gain admittance and remember to bring some singles to tip the towel boy. Bring something to cover your swimsuit while walking to and from the pool.

There is a lot of walking. Wear comfortable shoes that are sturdy enough to support your weary feet. Sun block is essential if you plan to be out in the daylight. Very powerful solar radiation and rarely any clouds.

Leave plenty of room in your suitcase for purchases you will be bringing home. Lots of shopping in most hotels.

What is the in age allowed to be a passager on a moped in las vegas nv?

Cant afford a car and i newd to get my kid to school. Its a two mile walk and in nv that is torture in 110 weather.

Exact info…

There is No restriction on a minimum age for a ‘passenger’…it is treated/looked at as the same as any vehicle, but NOT subject to ‘regular’ vehicle rules.

You MUST have a driver’s license to operate one, passenger does not.
You MUST have a ‘motorcyle’ license if it goes faster than 30 miles per hour
You MUST have a helmet on any ‘child’ passenger (Not law, MY requirement).

**MY Suggestion**
Get a bicycle or two…you’ll get a ‘small amount of exercise’ and also ‘bond’ doing something together.
You also won’t be branded a ‘DUI’ offender, as apparently people convicted of DUI drive scooters to get around after having their ‘driving’ privileges taken away. (Police, etc may see you that way…and the bike lanes are the safest for the scooter to be in anyway) *Just my thoughts.

Official information…is here!

MOPED LAW (for Nevada)….straight from DMV!
Mopeds“Moped” means a motor-driven scooter, motor-driven cycle or similar vehicle that is propelled by a small engine which produces not more than 2 gross brake horsepower, has a displacement of not more than 50 cubic centimeters or produces not more than 1500 watts final output, and is capable of a maximum speed of not more than 30 miles per hour on a flat surface with not more than 1 percent grade in any direction when the motor is engaged.

NRS 482.069 – Moped Defined | NRS 482.210 – Exemptions from Registration

You must have a Class C or higher driver license to drive a moped or motorized bicycle on a public street. You do not need a Class M license. Mopeds do not require insurance or vehicle registration. If the moped produces more than 2 gross brake horsepower, or has a displacement of more than 50 cubic centimeters (50 cc), or produces not more than 1500 watts final output, or is capable of exceeding thirty miles per hour (30 mph) on a flat grade, it is considered a motorcycle and you must have a Class M license, registration and insurance.

Mopeds must have almost all of the same safety equipment (lights, mirrors, etc.) as a motorcycle in order to be driven on any public street. Mopeds are not required to have turn signals (NRS 484D.130). See the Motorcycle Equipment Tip Sheet.

Other vehicles with a small engine are considered off-highway motor vehicles and may not be operated on public streets.

Nancy asks…

When does it start getting hot in Las Vegas?

i just moved out here from cali 4 months ago. So im wondering when should the weather start gettting HOT out here? now(feb) its when should the 90′s..110′s degrees happen here?

Administrator answers:

July is the hottest month with an average high of 105 °F (40 °C) and an average low of 76 °F (24 °C), with August only a tiny bit cooler. The city never has high humidity so these temperatures are exhilarating to most people at first, and the only outdoor things people tend to do in Vegas are walk to the next Strip hotel or sit by the pool, so the heat is rarely a major problem.

Avg High
May 91°F
June 100°F
July 105°F
August 102°F

Sandy asks…

Why would anyone choose to live in a desolate desert city like Twetnynine Palms, or Amboy, aside from careerS?

After driving through these cities to get to Las Vegas, NV I wondered how anyone could just decide they’d spend their life there.

Administrator answers:

Because of the great weather of course
Just think well over 300 sunny days per year, and it almost never gets cold! What more could you possibly want
I would love to live in a desert, but I’m stuck in crappy New England, cold and wet, yuck!
