Pretty much the same thing I do at night. Gamble. Maybe have a drink. Grab a meal. If I have a car I might take a run out to an off-strip place like M Resort or Red Rock.

Same things you do at night-- anything! Vegas is 24/7 and often I have no idea what time it is or what day it is. Go to the "Things To Do" section of TripAdvisor for plenty of ideas.

Daytime is the best time to gamble because the casinos are not as busy. Night time is too crowded in the casinos for me, so we go to shows/eat/walk the strip at night and gamble during the day.

Daytime is what we go for. We have been to Las Vegas aprox 40 times , and we are on east coast time.

We learned long ago not to even try to adapt to the new time zone. So we awake at about 5am local time ( 8:00 to us ) have a room service breakfast, then go downstairs wherever we are staying for bloody mary's and video poker. The casinos are seldom crowded then , which is fine for us.

We grab a buffet for lunch, the afternoon is pool time in summer or road trip in winter. (we always rent a car )

Evening is dinner at a really nice restaurant. Night time is a show, then some video poker before hitting the room at about 10pm. (1am our time)

Next day we repeat. After all this time we never seem to tire of this schedule, so we will keep it until we do

Sleep in, breakfast, window shopping and day drinking. We always go during an NFL Sunday, the games (and wagering) start at 10am. Table games have lower minimums and seats are easy to find.

If it's hot out, I'll spend the morning at the pool.

If you're budget minded, have a really nice lunch & fill yourself right up. At dinner time, have a lighter meal. Lunch menus are generally priced better than dinner menus.

People watch. Walk around looking at the human circus.

Pick out whatever sports bets you want to make for the afternoon and place your wagers before game time.

Buy your wife something nice at the Forum shops or the Canal shops.

Pick out a show you want to see and go to the boxoffice to get tickets.

We usually stay at the pool until lunch then either go out for lunch or eat at the pool. Then back to room to shower, change and nap before going out that night. On our first full day, we have breakfast somewhere nearby, then walk the strip and sightsee, day drink, gamble a little and make our way back to our home hotel to shower/nap before going out at night.
