Vegas at night is like nothing else.

Travelers are individuals who visit the New Vegas Strip to enjoy the city's casinos, stay in the hotels and wander around the area.


Travelers are civilians that travel to New Vegas to drink, gamble and party in the city's casinos while also staying in its luxurious hotels. Most of them come from major cities in California. To stay safe while traveling, civilians will often hire a mercenary to escort them or stick to NCR-controlled highways, they head to New Vegas via I-15, the fastest way to the city. After deathclaws infested Quarry Junction, travelers began using Highway 95 to get to the Strip because that highway is much safer in which some civilians will sometimes stop at the 188 trading post to rest. Civilians have to get to New Vegas via Freeside due to the Camp McCarran monorail being reserved for NCR Military Personnel and NCR VIPs. While in Freeside, travelers will usually hire a Bodyguard to escort them to the the Strip and protect them from Freeside thugs while wandering the slum. Those who have lost everything while gambling will literally give their clothing away to avoid starving during the long trip back home.
