Until now, one of the attractions of Las Vegas was there was plenty of parking and it was free. These days, not only is parking getting hard because of the volume of visitors, but the casinos now CHARGE for you to park. I guess it’s not good enough that you’re handing over your money once you get inside! To be honest, you can get some of your parking validated if you do gamble or otherwise spend money. But the concept of charging for parking rankles the locals, who need incentives to go to the Strip in the first place. So has it been a success? It’s been about a year now, and not only are they still charging, but some fees have recently gone up! I guess it’s here to stay. Another example of the MBA’s calling the shots and sucking every possible cent out of the consumer.
