Discounts For Locals in Las Vegas – Attractions & More!

Las Vegas may be a tourist destination, but local residents deserve to have fun too. After all, what’s the point of living in the “City of Entertainment” if you’re not taking advantage of it?

With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to construct a breakdown of attractions and things to do in Las Vegas that offer a locals discount.

For each deal, I’ll be sure to link to the offer so that you can ensure it’s still valid before making the trip!

Attractions on The Strip

Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay: NV residents can save $3 per ticket as part of Shark Reef’s locals discount.
