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.
Keep in mind, almost all of these locals deals will require you to show your Nevada driver’s license when buying or picking up tickets. Have it ready.
For each locals discount, I’ll be sure to link to the offer so that you can ensure it’s still valid before making the trip!
