different stuff to do in vegas....

Hi all,

I will be arriving in Vegas for an 8 night stay shortly with my wife.

We are both aged 40 and have been 3 or 4 times before and so have done the mainstream attractions like the fountains, volcano, hoover dam etc.

What we are interested to hear is what other things people would recommend as having enjoyed whilst in sin city....other than playing the tables or the slots.

A bit of an open question I know but we are interested to hear all the same.

Thanks in advance

We are kind of in the same situation. I would love to hear what other things there are to do. I have looked into venturing out to Red Rock Canyon or maybe doing the Scoot cars as well. We are going to vegas later this year. Going to Pawn Stars, which would be different for us etc..

Also here.. any suggestions would be great.

Ricks Restoration gives tours, dinner cruise on lake mead is very good, a backstage tour of jubilee, the mob museum, there are lots of options.

I know I will get some replies for these ideas,but because I never do these at home,here goes. We actually went to a movie at the Orleans and were going to go bowling also but didnt get around to that. I know,weird to do in Vegas but it was a nice way to spend some quiet time together. I also like to go to the Auto Collection at IP once in a while. Will do the zip line next trip and also the place to play pinball machines. Sorry,name escapes me. Have fun.

Springs Preserve, Mirage Secret Garden, Shelby Museum (if you're into cars), Titanic Exposition, Bodies (if you aren't squeamish), Hover Dam for sure if you haven't been.

If you read my trip reports you know that we spend Tuesday nights at McMullans for dinner, drinks and Trivia. A fun and inexpensive way to spend an evening.
