Las Vegas will always be an exciting city for people of all ages. Whether you are a tourist or a local citizen living there, Las Vegas is always the place to be. Here are some tips from Yellow Scooters to help you enjoy your stay in Las Vegas.
Explore the city via its public transportation.
The Monorail is the easiest way to explore the Las Vegas Strip. The fare is pretty cheap, too. This method of transportation is very friendly to senior citizens and to those who have disabilities.
Each station of the monorail has an elevator so you can get to the right platform with ease. There is level boarding on the platforms as well so you can get into the train easily. Each monorail has spaces where you can keep your scooters – just do not forget to lock them while you are inside the monorail’s cabin.
Getting around by bus is not a problem either. Buses in Las Vegas accept passengers on wheelchairs or scooters. They are perfectly equipped with access ramps and lowered floors so you can get inside the bus without any trouble.
Always ask for a senior discount.
You must know that not all places will offer this discount. However, it never hurts to ask. In many cases, employees do not ask if you want the senior citizen discount because they fear that the customer is not at that age yet. So, you should always take the first step.
Some restaurants, hotels, and entertainment places offer discounts to senior citizens. There are some casinos in Las Vegas which have days in the week when they give particular incentives to gamblers who are senior citizens. The public transportation operated by the Regional Transit Commission offer a discount to seniors above 62 years old. Just do not forget to bring your ID if you want to access these discounts.
Be a good pedestrian.
Traffic in Las Vegas can be busy and can get pretty scary, especially on the Strip. Do not forget to look both ways before you cross any street.
Do not worry if you are on a scooter while roaming around. Sidewalks in Vegas are wide and designed to accommodate wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Take note of the audio and visual aids as they are the ones which will guide you at every crosswalk.
Dress for comfort and stay hydrated.
Prepare your shorts, sundresses and light tank tops if you are planning to visit in the summer. The temperature in Las Vegas can reach up to 115 degrees during this time so wear clothes that are light and comfortable. Las Vegas is in a desert so expect high temperatures when roaming around the city.
It is best, however, to have a sweater with you all the time as establishments tend to keep their places cold inside. It is going to be useful as well if you are planning to visit during the winter. The wind can be cold during this time so a sweater or a jacket can help you stay warm.
Always have a bottle of water with you and drink from it regularly. The heat level in the city can become uncomfortable and can cause a heat stroke.
