    Vegas--- best hotels & things to do?

    My wife and I have never been to Vegas. So I was thinking about planning a trip at the end of next March when we could both get a week off from work.

    I really don't know which hotels to look for, but I also don't want to spend a lot of extra money on hotels(as long as they are clean I'm usually good) We both think it would be cool to stay at the stratosphere, but everyone says it is too far from the main strip.

    Besides maybe stalking Jeremy, haha, what other activities would be worth doing. Oh, and btw neither of us are much gamblers. If we have time we would like to see the grand canyon even though it's a 2 day trip.

    I like Planet Hollywood, the Mirage, Caesars and Paris. Great location on the strip. You can get nice accommodations at an awesome rate. GC and HD are a must if you've never been. Going into the hotels on the strip, all are unique and have great drink/food prices. Go to downtown Las Vegas, free light and sound show that begins just after sunset, and the themed shows put on there. You can catch the best view from the balcony of the second floor of Fitzgerald's.

    It's impossible not to have fun in Vegas. Whenever we go we usually make minimal plans and play it by ear and have time of our lives every trip. I do recommend seeing some shows though, Ka at the mirage was my favorite.

    the grand canyon is about maybe five hours away from Vegas, the Hoover Dam (and the newly built Tillman Bridge) about an hour.

    I am actually planning a 3-day mini trip with my lady, hitting vegas on a friday, cruise to hoover dam and to the grand canyon on saturday and be heading home by sunday. Ive done that same trip a couple times with family and its pretty doable.

    I recommend checking out the luxor, had a great time staying there. At night it is always fun to walk the strip and check out everything. There is often times a street performance by somebody. You can also check out the improve at the harrahs hotel. It wasn't that much money and it was a lot of fun.

    Went to Vegas the weekend of Oct 8th. We didn't do lots of gambling, mainly sight seeing. We went to Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon, saw the ship sinking at Treasure Island, the water fountain show at Bellagio, feeding of the lions at MGM and a few other things. It was a good time just walking the strip and people watching.

    Top 2 Hotels for my money:

    During the summer time: Hard Rock Hotel, great for people watching, and less crowded for gambling. $150 night

    Non Summer: MGM Signature hotel, very friendly staff, no gambling, but close enough to the MGM grand and New York New York. $200 night

    Hotels I didn't like: Luxor (the beds sucked, cheap decorations), Monte Carlo (ehh, nothing special), Treasure Island (just okay, but not for the $$)

    I just check and see what hotels I can get a deal on near Las Vegas Blvd. and Flamingo Blvd. That's the center of the 'new strip'. Luxor, NY NY, MGM are all at the far south end. They aren't terrible, but I'd rather be in the center after having stayed at Luxor my first time, Mirage and Flamingo are much better. TI isn't awful, I stayed at the Hilton behind Flamingo which was nice.

    Just check out the deals. I got a monster 2 bedroom suite at Mirage for a bachelor party for ~$1200 for the weekend. Can't beat it.

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” -- Author Unknown
