Las Vegas Locals are a lot Like Las Vegas Tourists

Although they'll do everything in their power to make it seem like it's far from reality, Las Vegas locals are surprisingly similar to Las Vegas tourists. This light study/article is a fun read about Sin City that's well worth reading, if not at least skimming through. 

Urban geography professor Rex Rowley knows what it’s like to live in Las Vegas.

He was a local. He grew up in the city, moving to the tourists' paradise when he was 10 years old. He grew up near Rainbow Boulevard and Flamingo Road and graduated from Bonanza High School.

Like most people who live in Las Vegas, he knows there are two kinds of people who occupy the valley: locals and tourists. There is also the tourist side to Las Vegas and the local side, kept separate from each other like opposite ends of a magnet.
