It is no secret that prices are inflated on the Las Vegas Strip. Residents of Las Vegas will often refuse to pay these prices and spend their money at venues that appeal to locals. Strip resorts understand this and often give special offers to locals. It only takes a valid Nevada ID to claim these deals. Military IDs are often permitted due to the large military presence around Las Vegas.
