If I can, I'd like to see about shooting somewhere and of course eating great food. Driving some dune buggies would be badass too. I'm down for pretty much anything.

Plain or Helli tour over canyon is cool. Otherwise in my opinion everything in the main attraction is what it is. Stick with booze and skanks and you should be fine.

Its too bad you aren't going in July, you could go to Death Valley, run up and down the sand dunes until you collapse from heat exhaustion (should take about 5 minutes)

Say "I'm a little fat girl" SAY IT!!

Although heat exhaustion does sound great, I have to use my vacation by Mar 15 which limits things quite a bit.

I've heard zarkana is real good!! I live in Vegas for 18 yrs now so its all kind of old to me. But my advice would b if u want to save money go to eat of of the strip, they jack the prices up for the tourist. But check out -5 its a bar in the Monte carlo. But when your out here pm me let me know what u want to do ill c if I can give u some ideas.

Split Aces and 8's.
Always double down when you have 11 and the dealer is showing 7 or less.

The voices in my head don't like you.

Red Rock Canyon is cool...Lake Las Vegas is an awesome resort area...Lake Mead...Grand Canyon...Hoover Dam...etc.

But, before we do all of that life-enriching travel...hit The Mermaid on Fremont St. and get yourself the 52oz plastic football full of whatever drink you want! Best value on the planet...a couple of top-shelf footballs of Crown on the rocks and you won't remember how much money you lost or how you contracted that funky rash.

Been out to Vegas a bunch of times. Cool place but after a few days the Strip kinda gets to much for me. I've taken the heli tour that lands down in the Grand Canyon and lets you get out and explore. Wine/Cheese/Snacks, etc. and then you load back in the heli and take off and tour some more. Very cool trip.

Also Red Rocks which is outside of Vegas (about 25 minutes from the strip) is a very cool place and it contrasts well with all the neon lights you just left behind. There is a one way driving loop with a bunch of pull-offs for you to stop and hike around. Lots of rock climbers to watch.

Fremont Street is a pretty cool thing to see.

Saw the Blue Man Group when they were at the Luxor. Good show - pay extra and get the best seats you can. We were front row center and had a blast!

Good luck and be smart about where you go and what time you go there. I was robbed once there.

coke + hookers = cookers. get some cookers on ya.

if yall haven't seen the blue man group it's a fun couple hours. make sure you walk by the bellagio to check out the fountains which come on every 15 or 30 minutes best i recall.

when you go to hoover dam take the hard hat tour and not the regular tour. it's a couple bucks more but worth it.

once you have your hard hat on then you'll be ready for somma dem cookers by gawd!

learn to play craps before you get there and then look for a hot table. too much fun!!

when i go back i'll take Buddah Belly's advise and rent a plane or a helicopter. i've seen helicopters flying in the canyon before but i don't know if planes are allowed to fly in or not. cookers and copters sounds interesting...

[QUOTE=doubleds65;993222]U got robbed? By gun/knife or didn't no til it was to late? Or did the slots get u?

We didn't know till the next morning. Like a pair of idiots we left about $5000 worth of rock and ice climbing gear in the vehicle while parked in lot for the Golden Spike where we were sleeping. Golden Spike=CRAZY. That place is just plain sketchy but we had stayed there numerous times before without incident.

Got lazy and only carried up two duffel bags worth of equipment to the room. We were just coming from climbing the walls in Zion and my buddy was heading to the Himalayas (reason for the ice climbing gear in the desert).

Lesson learned. Still love the place. Headed back in a few months.
