My Top 10 Favorite Things About Living in Vegas —Am I Doing This Right?

The weather is nice, I got some work done, I cuddled a puppy, and I read a Misty Copeland autobiography (Happy Black History Month) to some youths. All of these things are making me feel good and positive. So here are a few of my favorite things… about living in Las Vegas.

  1. Seeing the mountains everyday.
  2. Laughing at how much money tourists spend.
  3. 99 Cent Stores that prevent this desert from being a food desert.
  4. Going to Market in the Alley on the third Sunday of every month.
  5. Accidentally staying out until 3 a.m. because do the clubs ever close?
    • True story: one Saturday at 7:30 p.m. my roommate asked me if I wanted to see the Backstreet Boys. At 1 a.m. we were at nightclub on the Strip at an after party hosted by three of the five Backstreet Boys.
    • Ending any night out in my own back.
  6. The prevalence of taquerias. I live within a mile of at least three. Blest.
  7. My favorite parks/outdoor attractions:
    • Lake Mead National Park
    • Sunset Park
    • Gilcrease Nature Sanctuary
    • Clark County Wetlands
    • Las Vegas Farm
  8. 50 degree snow days (yes, that really happened last week)
  9. McCarran Airport has a Jamba Juice in both terminals
  10. I can play tourist any time of day, any day of the week. Here are some of my favorite tourist spots
    • The Mob Museum
    • The High Roller
    • The Bellagio Fountains
    • The Linq Promenade
