I wish I could help... I was only in Vegas for one day about five years. I did get to see Charo perform though... it was surreal!

Okay, I LOVE Las Vegas and I love taking pictures so I'm probably the girl to give you some advice! We loved this: http://www.neonmuseum.org/index.html (check it out!) You do have to make reservations in advance. If you can't go on the Boneyard tour, at least go to Fremont St and see the old neon signs on display there! The Bonanza gift shop across from the Sahara is the biggest and best for an awesome array of tacky souvenirs! Take a cab or rent a car and drive down to the Welcome to Las Vegas sign, get out and take pictures, it's in the median! Right near there is Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, they have shops and The Chocolate Swan has the most incredible desserts and hot fudge sundaes! The Eiffel Tower was super cool and gives you a great view of the city below. New York New York offers the Brooklyn Bridge, tugboats, a roller coater I believe and such if you are a NYC fan! Tropicana has a great little known gambling museum/history of Vegas museum if it's still there, fabulous retro souvenirs, etc, history of the brothels, etc! The Titanic relics were on display there too hen I went in '05. We went back to Vegas in '07 too! Circus Circus has a neat Midway inside with games and a free acrobat show. Fountains at Bellagio at night, lit up, in sync to music, that's neat! We enjoyed driving downtown and taking pix of the old motel signs and all the wedding chapel signs! Course we saw Celine Dion who's no longer there and Barry Manilow and Rita Rudner! Star Trek restaurant at the Hilton is neat if you are a trekie. Just walking the street and popping into the casinos/resorts is fun! Where are you staying? It's just to fun! Disneyland for adults in the middle of the desert is what I call it!
