What to do in Las Vegas

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

D & I will be heading to las vegas this weekend, but we're only going to be there for one day for a wedding @ Luxor. The wedding is at 1 pm and with the reception, it'll be over around 5 pm. We'll be staying out there until 11 pm. What's nearby that might be interesting? Any ideas? I'm not much of a gambler (neither is my husband), in fact I've never been inside a Casino, any cool restaurants? museums maybe? shops?

merci beaucoup :dance:

Since your not a gambler I wont say hit the tables and roll them dice!!!! Check with the Luxor and see if they will have any good shows going on, or with some of the other casino/hotels. Thier not all Wayne Newton type of shows, they advertise lots of interesting ones such as Cirque de soleil (misspelled) and upbeat shows. Most of all be safe and have FUN!!! :thumbs:

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Only museum in town is at the Bellagio, but it is super nice. They have fantastic dancing fountains too. One idea that we always enjoy is to simply walk the strip and see a bit of everything. Paul and I loved that. They have a tram too that is pretty reasonable...if your feet get too tired. If I was only going to be there for a day, I think I'd take a camera and do that. It's cheap too. At that end of the strip...see the Luxor of of course, Mandalay Bay, and there is also this Camelotte one that I forget the name of. As for restaurants, right across from Luxor is this DIVE hotel/casino that has the absolute BEST prime rib for $4.95. What is Vegas without Prime rib? Then at the other side of the strip is MGM Grand...white tigers. New York New York...roller coaster. Bellagio...dancing fountain and art. Then around the corner is the Venetian...canels. Caesar's Palace...mall. That would be hitting ALL the high spots in a whirl wind tour if you dare. Have fun!

Hoover dam - its a big dam - that's pretty much all it is :lol:

(yeah been there, lol)

Go have fun in Circus Circus casino - loads of things to do (like funfair type games) and high wire, circus acts above your head as you wander around. Much fun!

Ceasar's palace was just great for atmosphere and people watching - many new places since I last visited tho - am sure some of the fancy casinos have interesting things to see.

When Ive visited Vegas I usually play the nickel and dime slots cos you can have fun 'gambling' and it doesnt cost you a fortune.

If you were there for more than one evening Id say try the water park but youre not so never mind :lol:

Also DO contact the Las Vegas Tourist information office - they are a MINE of great ideas and seriously underused!

walk down the strip and check out the hotels. The show inside the caesar's palace is pretty cool about atlantis..
