Without any information about you and your trip, it's very difficult to offer help. Tell us about yourself, what you think you may enjoy about Vegas and how many days you have.

Forums such as this are excellent for answering specific questions that involve the finer details people want to know about such as which restaurant to choose between two or three options or which show people rate as being worth seeing. They're less useful when you want people to plan an entire itinerary for you. Do a little of your own research (even if that means just trawling through old posts here) then come back and ask stuff. You should get lots of help that way.

As you're staying at M/Bay at the south of the strip I'd suggest getting a 3 day SDX/Deuce pass.

On Sat get to the bus to the Wynn and walk back south calling into Fashion Show Mall and the casinos that attract you - walk as far as Bellagio and get bus back to M/Bay.

On Mon walk north towards Bellagio again calling into the casinos/shops that appeal to you and get bus back to M/Bay.

On Saturday night use the pass to visit downtown (Fremont St) for old style vegas.

Many of the restaurants at Mandalay Bay participate in the restaurant.com program, more than any other Strip hotel. Border Grill is one of our favorites.

What kind of money do you have to spend? Are you looking to see any shows? Are you wanting to go to a club? Do you only want to stay on the strip or perhaps do a tour like red rock canyon or hit up Fremont Street downtown? Do you like great restaurants or are you more a buffet or fast food kind of person? Are you looking to just get a general overview of the Vegas strip experience or have something more specific in mind?

If you can provide a little more details I will offer you some suggestions.

Don't think you have to see and do it all in this trip because you may never be back. You will be back - hooked with the rest of us.

This may come off as sounding crabby but I promise it is not - just do some searches here in the search bar. There are hundreds of old threads with ideas of things to do. You can put in shows, restaurants, clubs, bars ect...and I learned much of what I know about Vegas that way.

Asking questions is great too and the other posters will be helpful but I promise there is a ton of info here if you look.

Terry Fator and Love are my top 2 show picks. Both shows are at the Mirage Hotel.
