Hi. Some gal pals and I are headed to Las Vegas for a weekend in June to celebrate my 40th birthday. None of us have ever been to Vegas. We are overwhelmed by where to stay, what to do, etc. We have a sense that it would be best to stay in the middle of the strip as I don't think we will have a car. We also don't want to break the bank but can afford a decent place. We have heard suggestions of the following: MGM, Flamingo, Aria, Bellagio, Venetian, to name a few. I know it will be loud but it would be nice to be able to get some sleep while we are there. What do you recommend? We would like for it to have a nice pool. We are also interested in seeing Blue Man Group or some other show. Suggestions of where to go for that? Lastly, my friend is interested in touring Hoover Dam. It looked like Pink Jeep company got good reviews. Other suggestions for Vegas "must see" items in a short amount of time? We like to have a good time but aren't huge partiers or gamblers. Thank you for your help!!!
