Las Vegas 101

Becoming7’s Las Vegas 101 is a quick rundown of what to see, do and eat in Las Vegas that is G or PG rated at most.

I am skipping the casinos and freemont street because the shows and entertainment change all the time. I am also going to skip the shopping info because 7’s aren’t shoppers.

I will try to have the addresses and a photo or two of each location.

Keep in mind that Vegas is always evolving, things change addresses, prices change, things close up so double check things to avoid surprises



On our first Vegas Vacation in 2009 we divided the city into 4 sections based on geocache locations. We used the Freeways to divide the city.
