Night time I got it all

Will you have a car? If so, the Hoover Dam is worth a trip, Ethel M chocolate factory in Henderson does free tours and their cactus garden is cool, walk through the conservatory at the Bellagio, Titanic/Bodies exhibits at the Luxor, the Neon Museum, the Mob Museum, Madame Tussaud's, CSI exhibit at MGM Grand, the Lions at MGM, and the Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage aree just a few things to do. There's lots of discount coupon books around as well with 2 for 1's. Also check out tix4tonight for discount tickets to shows, attractions and restaurants.

I never have a car when I go, but let me ask you about the Mob Museum and the Neon Museum, did you like them ?, the neon one is by Fremont St, yes ?

Ok. I haven't been to either one yet but I've heard a lot of good things about both. The Neon Museum is north of Fremont Street on Las Vegas Blvd. It's just north of Bonanza.

Honestly? I do the same thing during the day as I do at night...gamble, drink, maybe shop. LOL

The last trip was different. I accompanied my husband for a conference, so he was busy all day every day. I did manage to eat all meals with him still. I gambled, shopped, saw a movie one afternoon, did the Television City thing at MGM where you watch a pilot episode of a new show and give feedback. That was cool and different, also free.

Pool time if you are into that, I"m not really tho.

I thought about taking a bus trip out to the Hoover Dam but didn't.

I ended up doing the Mob Adventure in Tropicana, It was a lot of fun to break the day up, they have live actors trying to get you to run money for the Mod, at the end I was shot by a machine gun cause they didnt think I handled the police well
Aslo did the wax museum, i was lauhging so hard I cried as we were taking funny pics, anyway I think its a good ideal to have a few things to do during that day. At night loved all the shows but wanted to give a run down on the "day time " things
