Go back to the days before all of the corporations took over. Two dollar blackjack was common and even at those levels you could get comps at any casino.

One more thing

An on campus UNLV football stadium. If all goes well it will be reality sometime soon. It will host not only UNLV football but also the NFR and other events.

From a tourist perspective, I would shut down Las Vegas Blvd. from the MGM Grand to the Fashion Mall to all traffic except city busses. This would provide an incredible opportunity for street parties, events, concerts, etc. Driving on LV Blvd. is a headache anyway, so why not just close it?

Another opportunity, if closed, would be to host an Indy Car race on the Strip once a year...start it at dusk...the lights of the strip with cars racing down...would make for a great event both live and on TV.

Enough with the mega resorts and get back to the basics with dinner shows and great headliners that don't cost $300 a ticket. The county needs to clean up the strip of panhandlers dressed up like dirty Disney characters and pets being used as pawns. Thank heavens for downtown and some off strip properties.

take away the resort fees!! And it would be nice not to have to walk a mile to your room from the lobby.

I would change the corporate greed: It's blatant. The minute we get into town, we are at there mercy.

The general de-theming of the resorts. The new, streamlined, modern look and feel is lovely, but feeling generic. Properties are starting to lose their identity.

I also agree that the riff raff on the street (peddlers, performers, characters, and panhandlers) have to go.
