Really?! What's NOT to do in Vegas?! Look thru everything at www.vegas.com

LAX Nightclub at Luxor, Playboy/Moon at Palms, Gallery at Planet Hollywood, Fashion Show Mall, Forum Shops at Caesars, LV Premium Outlet, Shoppes at Palazzo, Miracle Mile Mall at Planet Hollywood, Minus 5 Ice Bar at Mandalay Bay, Jabbawokeez at Monte Carlo, Absinthe at Caesars, Peepshow at Planet Hollywood, Viva Elvis at Aria, Penn & Teller at Rio, Purple Reign at Hooters, Viper Vixens at O'Sheas, Roller coaster at NYNY, The Gun Store, Vegas Fly Away

Really, the list goes on and on. Do your research, go with a plan, have fun!

Outside of going to the Vault and O store several times? Rent an SUV and head out to where the Sierra Nevada Mtns. start. Awesome drive, great views and there is a mountain lodge with some really great food. Best elk burger I had in a long time. Also - the desert is a fun place to drive around and hike in the foothills.

ive been to vegas few times and each time ive seen a different 'cirque de soliel show'.....INCREDIBLE!!!-well worth viewing in my opinion if they are still performing there...

the other thing i done was an organised trip....flew to grand canyon over hoover dam, helicopter down to the bottom of the canyon, fast yet along the canyon, copter back up, bbq on the rim then fly back-all in a day but awesome day out!

there is loads to day but some can be pricey....

That's right - that new bridge over Hoover is pretty awesome to see. It was almost done last time I was there. I believe it's finished now.

Also you gotta hit the In-N-Out while you're there!

The best fun you can have is playing "Who's a hooker".

thanks guys. I've been looking at vegas.com and some of the other things, but me being down with the cheapness, I'm looking for stuff that's relatively inexpensive.

My hotel is free (points through travel with work) and i'm staying at the candlewood suites (has a kitchen- special dietary restrictions).

Id' love to rent an SUV but they're $$ and i got a regular rental for the week.

the Cirq shows sound good but are they any good from "far away". Not sure how good my seats would be.

Anyone go on a grand canyon tour?

The helicopter canyon things sounds REALLY cool. Would love to do that.
Anyone go skydiving?
Anyone do the free fall thing off the roof of that hotel (can't remember which).

Multiple O-store/vault trips- for sure. My wife might not be too happy about it, but hey.... who's footing the bill, eh?

How about restuarants? stuff locals would eat, not celebrity chef stuff. I am open to buffets.

again, thank you guys a bunch!

Thanks for all the suggestions guys. I'm heading back at the moment. Had a great time and saw some cool stuff at the Vegas O Store at Fashion Show Mall.

Well, put on your Medusa gear and try to hitch a ride!
I'm curious as to what'll happen.
