Last minute Vegas-w/teen

I have a week to plan what to do with our 17yr olds for her first trip to Vegas.

Thinking about seeing MJ.

Rides on the Strat.

No dam or museum type stuff.

Does your 17 yr old know who MJ is? Maybe she would prefer the Beatles, the Four Seasons, Elton or Rod Stewart, Elvis, or the Rat Pack.

Pool and shopping. An afternoon at a nice spa. Go see St Marks Square at Venetian and the Forum Shops at Caesars, and the Conservatory at Bellagio.

While I would hate to be 17 today in Vegas, I'm sure you'll find plenty to do.

She loves MJ and the Beatles. Hubby and I loved Love.

We happened to be by MJ's house when he passed. We were at the gate when the news cameras came.

I just took my 15yo daughter. She enjoyed Love. We also liked going to Hoover Dam, Red Rocks, Bellagio fountains, the pool at the Mirage, and just walking around to the Casinos. She was asking by the 2nd day there when we can come back again.

Love that she wants to go back. My fingers are crossed for the same experience.

The Gun Store to shoot guns (ladies package shoot the pink ak-47 with a hello kitty on it fun and reasonably priced) if you are a family that is comfortable with being around guns.

Scoot City Tours - neat scooter tour through Red Rock Canyon, you drive in these two seater bright scooters that look like skittles all in a row and stop to admire the views.

Shark Reef at MB

Secret Garden at The Mirage

Gondola Ride at Venetian

Volcano at Mirage

Bellagio Fountains

Eiffel Tower

Roller Coaster at NYNY

Stratosphere - view and rides

Mob Attraction at Tropicana

Goretorium (like a haunted house)

Warhol Exhibit at Bellagio

Bellagio Conservatory

National Geographic Exhibit at Venetian

shopping at outlets

Fremont Street overhead light show

wax museum at Venetian


Love CDS


Le Reve

pool time


fun, hip restaurants - like celebrity chef restaurants such as Burgr by Gordon Ramsey
