Las Vegas, NV

“Above everything else, I love that it’s a big city with endless amounts of things to do, but it has space. Most of the major cities I’ve been too are overrun with masses of humanity and you have to ride in a train or sit in traffic for hours. Vegas doesn’t have any of that, yet it has something for everyone, even for locals who don’t ever go to the strip. You can go to the party, but got home after.” — Escape the Fate
