Saw Danny Gans and Phanton -- and agree whole-heartedly! Haven't seen Celine, so I can't comment on that show. Saw Elton John (who performs when Celine is off), and he was in excellent form.

Disney owl -- as a visitor from the U.K., you might try to see the Beatles "LOVE" at the Mirage. It is fab! At a minimum, visit the "LOVE" gift shop. There's a bass guitar on display signed by the Fab Four.

We go once or twice a year.

We like -

1. Ethel M's chocolate factory free tour and desert gardens!

2. Sam's Town Casino - very low key and fun and there is a movie theater after you run out of dough

3. We ALWAYS stay at the Golden Nugget downtown and recommend the Fremont st. experience and downtown area to get a "feel" for the old days- not really a family place though.

4. SHOP everywhere= outlets, fashion show mall, forum shops at ceasar's and shopping at the old ALaddin (now Planet Hollywood)

5. STAR TREK we usually go to this at the Hilton. It is pricey but you can get half price at the half price ticket places - get the backstage tour, too.

What? Just FIVE things??? What about fun food - great buffets - nice fancy schmancy restaurants? and don't forget gambling!!

If you decide you want to take a tour of Hoover Dam try the Comedy on Deck Tour. Joni is the tour guide and is a stand up comedian as well as being very knowledgable about Hoover Dam. We had a wonderful time! I highly recommend this tour.

We also enjoyed Ka very much and saw the Evening at LaCage at the Riviera which was a lot of fun if you like drag queens.

I wasn't too impressed with Ethel M's tour (nothing going on) but the candy shop was yummy!
