How to Stay Safe in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a safe place to visit. Violent attacks are rare, but like all big cities, practice caution wherever you go. Vegas does have some gang violence, but if you stick to Fremont Street or the Strip, you likely won’t come in contact with it.

Don’t walk alone at night in unlit places, and keep your valuables secure at all times. Keep an eye on your wallet while in large crowds on Fremont Street or on public transportation.

Never leave your drink unattended and be wary of buying things from street vendors. This is especially true for event tickets.

If you’re hiking, always bring water and sunscreen. It can get super hot! If you rent a car, don’t leave any valuables in it overnight. While break-ins are rare, it’s always better to be safe than sorry!

If you experience an emergency, dial 911 for assistance.
