Things that would entertain a 54 year old woman ?

Besides gambling and drinking what would entertain my mother?

For my 32nd birthday I am going to take my mother to Las Vegas, it will be her first time there and my fourth. She is asking me about things to do there and I can’t really answer her because it has been a few years since I was there myself. What does Las Vegas (on The Strip preferably) have that would entertain a 54 year old woman?

If everything goes as planned we will be there February 5th to the 12th.

She is into almost everything so any ideas would be helpful. As of now we are planning on seeing Vinnie Favorito, Blue Man Group, and Penn & Teller.

A spa visit!!! I highly recommend Qua @ Ceasars. She doesn't even have to get any treatments. She can easily spend 2-3 hours just enjoying the many pools, hot tubs, saunas, etc., plus teas, coffees, fruit etc. a nice quiet break from the craziness of the strip. $50.00 last time I did it.

Hard to say what will entertain you mother, I doubt any of us here have met her.

Like me my mom is a huge sports fan so she'd probably go to the UNLV vs Wyoming basketball game on Feb 8. My parents do go to Las Vegas every month or two to see 2 of their grandkids so they go to a lot of UNLV football and BB games when there.

Just walking around and checking out all of the hotels and scenery will kill a lot of time, especially for it being her first time there.

Bellagio fountains, dueling piano bars, mirage volcanos

There is a slot machine your mother will love. I know it's at Wynn, and I think maybe Monte Carlo. It's called Hot Flashes. It is exactly what you think, and the bonus rounds are hilarious.

locomoco, I was going to suggest that hookup but I was afraid I'd be too forward. Besides, sons normally get pizzed when someone tries to hookup their moms. I think it could work, though.

Jersey Boys would be a great show, she would love it, and so would you.

Spa day...ahhhhhh.

Shopping, 2 outlet malls, both are good.

A manicure and pedicure before you go would be a nice gift for you to give her.

A ride up the Eiffel Tower at Paris, has a great view.

The neon museum, just north of downtown, has the old signs from casinos/ hotels that no longer exist. Very interesting and lots of Vegas history.

Human Nature at Venetian is another show she would love. Motown hits sung by 4 guys from Australia, they are fabulous.

Arrange to be picked up at the airport by presidential limo, she will get a rose, and a bottle of champagne, and perhaps a stop at the Las Vegas sign for a photo op.

The Bellagio fountains and conservatory are always fun, for any age.
