  • The shopping in Las Vegas is awesome (The Shops at Caesars Palace are really nice/fun to walk around, and so are the outlet malls, etc..there's a lot of good shopping there). Also, if you go up to the top of the Stratosphere the views of Las Vegas are amazing. There's a really good restaurant up there (but it's pricey) too. There are some pretty good shows on the LV Strip (you can buy discount tickets pretty cheap online)..and the Grand Canyon is relatively close by (and so is Hoover Dam) and those are fun to go to as well.

    As far as what to avoid...don't buy gas on the strip (it sounds stupid, but just don't, lol. They jack up the prices a LOT). Also, I wouldn't recommend walking around too late at night because weird people come out, lol.
    Have fun!

  • Just walking down the strip from one casino to another and checking out what each place has to offer.

  • Avoid going OFF the strip! And definitely pay for the day pass for the Deuce- the bus. You'll find yourself 2 miles up the strip and too tired to walk back!

  • Avoid gambling on the strip. They don't pay out. Enjoy the sights, like Hoover Dam. See some shows.

  • Don't go for a walk off the strip! We did that and ended up 5 miles away from our hotel. Sounds crazy but it's easy to get distracted, lol
    The shops are fun and amazing, lots of cool stuff!
    We stay up all night and sleep during the day. Night life there is soooo much fun. Also, like sherribeare said, go to fremont st. at night. Cool light show.
