    1. Love to sleep in and order room service and eat it while watching a movie i haven't gotten to see in the theater.
    2. Love to sit and play slots and drink hot chocolate with whipped creme and baileys.
    3. Love to enjoy the world class food, great resturants on and off the strip.
    4. Mystere.. The original and in my humble opinion the best of the Cirque shows.
    5. Bellagio conservatory, museums and the Titanic exhibit.

    Those "flyer" distributors are called porn slappers and they have increased business since the economy has changed.

    Great Britain person - you don't have to take an expensive "tour" of the grand canyon. Contact the park through the internet, stay on site at one of the park service hotels for a night and take the FREE park service tours and the tram goes everywhere and is either free or very cheap. I would not give a penny to a tour guide when the Park Service provides such a great and satisfying service for you! There is lots to do that is free. Ditto Hoover Dam - if you have a rental car, just drive up there (about an hour or so away) and pay for the Park Service tour! There is a gift shop, too.

    Check out your options on line at the Park Service sites.

    I agree with others that you won't see any hookers just randomly unless you are looking. If you are looking, you can certainly find them! Especially around 2 am downtown on Fremont Street. On the strip, they tend to be much higher end and harder to spot unless you are a single man.

    1. Bellagio fountains and conservatory
    2. An afternoon at the pool without children
    3. Any Cirque show (we saw Love for the second time a couple of weeks ago; I can't decide if I like it or O better)
    4. The fabulous food
    5. A little time at the tables

    On our trip a couple of weeks ago, I didn't make it to the Bellagio. My trip felt very incomplete without it!

    My top 5s every time I go:

    1) dancing all night long---too many great clubs to choose from with new ones opening up all the time
    2) drink specials: yummy slushes and free drinks or 2 for 1s all the time
    3) great food: I like the Rio buffet, Grand Lux Cafe in the Venetian, Carnegie Deli in the Mirage (great sandwiches! Huge--split with someone), Happy Hour at Seableu at the MGM grand for $1 oysters and shrimp, Hash House a Go Go 5 minutes off the strip, Hot n Juicy for crawfish off the strip
    4) Shopping: High end to Outlet...shopaholic's dream
    5) Swimming and lounging poolside

    Atomic Museum and the Nevada Test Site Tour if you are looking for something different to do. Also the Boneyard Tour (thru all the old neon signs) is also a very "Las Vegas Vacation" thing to do.....:dance3:

    They used to have this and it was a very nice show -- but last time I saw it at the Trop had to be at least 10 years ago (if not more).....

    One of my favorites is the pinball museum. I save my quarters all year just for this.
