Default Las Vegas

Last day at work before Holiday/Gambleathon/Drinkathon and a marriage........

I have booked show tickets, seats in the best Restaurant, Helicopter Ride, a visit to Hoover Dam, visit to a designer mall out of town and a day in LA. Is there anything missing that is a MUST DO in Vegas?

Any good ideas & general pisstaking about my life being over is welcome.

Oh, you're gonna love it (Las Vegas and being married, that is).

I would recommend that if you stay in the Hard Rock Hotel, you don't stay in one of the suites as they are above the night club and you won't sleep. Also, if you are driving to and from LA, go through Death Valley.

I've been about 5 times to Vegas. What an awesome place. Crap. Now I want to go...

I would say you've got to do the rides on top of the Stratosphere, go to Voodoo Lounge at the Rio for at least one drink, visit one of the topless/adult pools (Mandalay Bay is cool, but there are loads), go 'slumming' downtown for at least one night (if you're staying on the strip) and since you're already planning to go to Hoover Dam just keep going another hour or so and check out the Grand Canyon Skywalk (walk out on a glass walkway with 1500 meters down to the bottom....awesome and scary at the same time)...

Have a suite in different hotel though the not sleeping wont be an issue for me as my snoring after a hard nights drinking will probably drown out the din from any nightclub...........

Taking a tout to LA so I can sit back and relax (Sleep all he way there and back). I figured a place called Sin City may have some *Interesting* places to visit.............They do have the show Striptease on with that ludicrous derriere bearing Coco Austin I could get away with as its *Art*.

I thought it was another 2/3 hour drive from Dam? An hour makes it do'able.

I'm sure it was only about 1-1.5 hours, but the whole trip takes more or less a full day as you keep stopping along the way..If you're in Vegas for a week or so I would definitely say it's worth it though..

Some of the shows are utter garbage, especially those labelled as cabarets. The O show (Cirque De Soleil) at Bellagio is awesome, but tickets are expensive. Is Striptease the show that one of the Spice Girls was in some years ago..?
