Just booked tickets for a trip down to Sin City. Some members of the GFs burlesque troupe are heading down to visit their former Mentor in the setting of Miss Exotic World 2008. I'm tagging along. I'll be there for 8 days. So who's been there and can recommend some attractions? ...Aside from the obvious Casinos and not going broke at the blackjack table.

We'll be staying on the Old Strip, home of the Burlesque Performers of yore.

8 days is way too long to spend on the strip the whole time. I was able to see most of it in 24 hours, although it was pretty rushed. Most people I have heard say 3 days is good. I would look into other attractions in the area for the other days. I think they have tours to Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam from Vegas.

I arrive late on the 2nd of June and leave on the 10th, so that leaves about 6 days for arsin' around. One weekend on the strip would be enough for me anyway. I'm travelling with 3 ladies and meeting a fourth there, so I imagine I'm gonna be dragged around on manys a shopping excursion :P

Nevada in June is probably gonna be the death of me, a pale kid from the middle of the North Atlantic. I'm just glad that Miss Exotic world isn't being held in July or August.

I wouldn't mind seeing the Hoover Dam, but I Think I'd be disappointed when Optimus and Megatron didn't show up to battle with an energy axe and mace.

Vegas is good times. Hit the different Casino's and check out their entertainment lineups.
Cirque du' Solie is a must while there. "O" is incredible. But any of thier shows are really good. Blue Man Group puts on a great show also.
All of the bars are wild.
Go see Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. BUT Do not under any cicumstances whatsoever go on the Helicopter tours. or the plane tours. when my wife and i were there, there were 3 crash's that week. the pilots like to drink In fact there have been many crash's and deaths resulting from those tours.
Take my advice, it may save your life.

Appparently ellipses and smilies are replacing periods in English grammar and I missed the memo.

Cirque was in town not too long ago. My better half saw the show 7 times in the space of a weekend because she's head bartender at the stadium's restaurant during events.

I'm defintely going to be checking out some of the tattoo shops down there.

go see Zumanity at the New York, New York hotel. It's amazing.

Blue Man Group is always fun. It's worth it for the finale alone.

haha, all i do is sit at the blackjack table!!! And even though you say not to recommend it, i must do so. It's one of the only games your money can stretch out for hours if you play right and that's entertainment, my friend. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif

Yeah, viper writes like that all the time. It's when Zee starts doing that without all the ellipses and smilies that you should start to worry. I know I am...

100% truth. My lady plays the slots but that's not personal enough for me. Go for the 'jack table.

Blackjack will most likely be the only thing I play while I'm down there, besides sinking a few coins in the slots. I'll be like one of those people you see in movies and TV, that gather round the Craps table to watch other people lose their shirts.

Me, smoking something? Never! Drinking though? Maybe... but have a look at this (without all the ellipses and smilies) then tell me you do no such thing

The hotel and casino have long since been renovated, but that Neon sign still exists in a storage yard.

And of course there's R6:Vegas. Can't see the Nugget there but that's the Fremont Experience.
