    Final Vegas Vacation Preparations

    The wife and I go to Vegas for 5 days early the next month and I wanted to get some final suggestions on things to do. We already have front-row tickets to see the Blue Man group and are planning on seeing the Hoover Dam but so far that's about all we've actually some-what officially planned on doing, other than relaxing of course.

    Any ideas for two non-partiers? We may see Ka (by Cirque de Soleil) but haven't decided yet. We've heard there are some great shopping places, possibly even a nice outlet mall type thing, but we don't really have any idea where those things are or what is good. With a ton of stuff going on the past few weeks, I haven't had time to do adequate research on the web yet but hopefully I'll be able to make some time before we go.

    Anyways, any suggestions are certainly welcome

    Jeremy,
    The highlight in Vegas this year will be in September. I hope you are there to watch the Cyclones improve their record to 4 - 0!

    Re: Final Vegas Vacation Preparations

    My wife and I went in Feb. and we didn't do much of the club thing. Plenty of good stuff just to walk around and look at. We saw the Cirque show, "Mystere" @ Treasure Island (If you've seen "Knocked Up" you've seen some of Mystere) It was actually really good and really funny in parts I highly recommend it. "KA" has more of a story line and martial arts from what I've heard.

    How are you getting to the Hoover Dam? I'm a car nut so when we went to the Hoover Dam we went to this place and rented a convertible for the trip.

    Go to the Piano bar at NYNY. Or there is another decent I think farther down the strip, maybe Harrahs. Good times, but laid back having a few beverages.

    If you do go to the Hoover dam, go to this hotel. 4VR4Cy and I were driving from Las Vegas to Phoenix a year and a half ago, the Friday after Thanksgiving.

    Well, it was very busy that day and traffic was horrible, it took about 2 hours to get fro the town right before the Dam to get off it. Anyways, while we creeped along the road, I spotted a great promotion going on at the last Casino/Hotel before the Dam. I had to take a picture of it.

    I didnt get to stop by and take advantage of the deal, but maybe they will run that special again!

    Re: Final Vegas Vacation Preparations

    I suggest a trip to Red Rock which is only a thirty minute drive west of town. If your a canyoneer you'll be in heaven once you visit Red Rock.

    Southern Utah is only a three hour drive and I highly recommend a hike down the Virgin River inside Zion National Park.

    There are a number of concert venues which book the most popular recording acts; The Joint inside the Hard Rock Casino, Thomas and Mack, Mandalay Bay, etc. You can check in advance to see what acts will be performing.

    I lived in Las Vegas for thirteen years and was always amazed at the number of people that vacation there. I thought of Las Vegas as just another congested city which has casino's located thoughout the metro area. What I liked best about Las Vegas was its close proximity to Southern Utah. Southern Utah is hard to beat in the way of recreational amenties and climate.
