Old lady of a 'certain age' here, Just back from Vegas. I didn't see any 'hookers' and I was LOOKING for them, just so's I could say I saw one! I also collected all the advertising cards sleazy guys were handing out on the street, lol. One less piece to litter the ground.

Favorites:
*Lunch at Mon Ami Gabi in Paris, window table overlooking the Bellagio fountains
*Shopping, especially Caesers and Desert passage
*sightseeing - I burned through three cds of photos in 3 days
*people watching - VERY interesting

Can't WAIT to go back - for me Vegas had a lot of the things I love about Walt Disney World - and they aren't "cheaping out" like Disney. They've spent the money to do "whatever" - right.

Look for the hookers around Paradise St and downtown side streets......if you need one badly go to Parhump they are legal and very expensive there!
Unfortunatly I have seen them many times and last time with a car load of my sons and thier friends!

We just had lunch there a couple of weeks ago and it was oh, so lovely and romantic. And delicious, too!

1. Sit at "The Mix" at the top of MB and have a drink. View is probably one of the best I've ever seen anywhere.

2. Sit at the Voodoo Lounge and have a drink. View is right up there with the Mix. (can you see a pattern developing here? sitting and drinking??)

3. Do "The Drive" from GM at the Sahara

4. Pig out at the nicer buffets. Not Lady Luck or Excalibur..I'm talking MB, Wynn etc. I love seafood and rarely get it since my wife hates it, so its a definate treat for me to have platefulls of crab legs, etc.

5. Sleep in late, and then stay out till the sun comes up bar and club hopping.

Gunna add one more...

6. Golfing - while it is very expensive to play in LV and most are overpriced for what they are...theres something about golfing in the desert thats so different from what its like here in Seattle.

Here are my Top 5.

1. See the Bellagio fountains. A must-see everytime. I love them and the music!

2. The Forum shops! I love to shop there. Well, mainly window shop as some of that stuff would take me 20 years to afford!! LOL Oh, and get some cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory.

3. Ride up in the Eiffel tower and the Stratospere. Love the view!

4. See a show. Any show. Doesn't matter if it's classy or cheesy, we must see one show per trip.

5. The Rio! I love the Rio buffet and their Show in the Sky.

Just got back yesterday from my first trip to Vegas. I have to say, it's the first trip I've been on when I couldn't wait to go home (way too smoky for me), but there were still parts that were very enjoyable.

Just adding two things I really enjoyed to the list of favorites:

1. Danny Gans show --he was extremely talented and very funny. Probably the best hour and a half of my entire trip.

2. Tao restaurant/nightclub. The best Asian food I've tasted anywhere. Very expensive, and worth every penny!

The great glass ceiling in the lobby of the Bellagio, Cirque show "O" at the Bellagio, and we thought the best buffet was at Green Valley Ranch

We are going to Cali, but my fiance wants to go over to Las Vegas for a day, do you think we can hit: Fremont Street, New York-New York Hotel, Eiffel Tower, Stratosphere Tower, Venetian Resort, Bellagio, Mirage, Luxor. All in one day. We wouldn't be staying the night.

Just went the beginning of November.
You have got to see Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian. I wasn't very enthusiased about seeing it, but I am so glad I did. The theater was built for the play and is 20 times more spectacular than any other musical I've ever seen.
The special effects and decor of the theater reminds you of Pirates of the Carribbean or something. I'm spoiled now to ever see a musical or play in a "regular theater". Well worth the money.

If you get started early, don't spend too long in each place, and leave really late you could fit all that in.
