Shopping at Cesar's Palace forum shops. Eating at the Planet Hollywood buffet for lunch. I like the spa at Bellagio, but it pricey, so it's a rare treat. As far as shows: O by Cirque de Soleil is great, but I prefer La's smaller, but more intimate. I don't really party, so I can't recommend night clubs.

Let's see if I can recreate my list.

1 - the fountains at Bellagio, esp after dark

2 - the lobby at Bellagio - I love the glass flower gardens.

3 - the lion habitat at MGM grand

4 - the M&M store with the wall of M&Ms.

5 - Casino Royal for $1 margaritas and the best odds on craps

6 - top of the Eiffel Tower at Paris (ridiculously overpriced, but a great view at night)

7 - The Creperie in the shops between Paris and Ballys for great breakfasts and lunches and NOT expensive at all

8 - Madam Tussaud's at Venice

9 - The Gondoliers and the living statues in the shops at Venice

10 - Shops at Caesar's Palace - ohhh lala ... but fun to wander, even if you can't afford to buy

11 - Laser light show at Freemont Street (the original Strip, downtown)

12 - Red Rocks park - about a 40 min drive from the Strip.

13 - Nine Fine Irishmen - a pub at New York New York with the best colcannon soup outside of Ireland

14 - The volcano at the Mirage (I think it's the Mirage) which is a cool display after dark.

I think that's it. Those are the cheap/free things anyway. If you get a chance to see a show, I loved anything by Cirque du Soleil, The Blue Man Group, Penn & Teller ...

Angie and I will be in Vegas the 22-24th of June for her mom's 75th birthday. We go about once a year or 2 times every 3 years.

We enjoy the fountains at night at Bellagio...The gondolas at The Venetian...Fremont at night...tigers at MGM....Mandaly Bay and whatever shows are in town.

We always go to Harrah's and drink beer out of mason jars and watch Toby Keith videos at his bar there.

We take the monorail to the stops and get off and walk.

Have a great time! are gonna love it!

And remember that the "Whatever happens in Vegas ~ stays in Vegas"...doesn't apply to 3FC...spill your guts...we can keep a secret!

My husband and I go about once a year. We like to go to a lounge at MGM Grand called Centrifuge. It has a really good vibe. Good music and the bar staff gets on the bar every half hour to dance. Eye candy for the ladies and the gentlemen! We also go to the Extra Lounge at Planet Hollywood. It's a nice centrally located place to people watch and the bar staff is really nice. The Mirage has a restaurant/lounge called Japonais that I like a lot. Sounds like I drink a lot in Vegas, doesn't it? Well, I don't get out much in real life!

We love the Cirque shows and I don't think you could go wrong with any of them.

The volcano is at the Mirage, but I believe it's shut down for a while. Oh, and the Siren show at TI is fun.

My husband is a fan of the Ferrari dealership at the Wynn. It costs $10 to get in and you can't take pictures, but if you're into Ferrari's, it's pretty cool.

Have a great time and give us a full trip report when you get back!
