Try to avoid the illegal criminal alien drug cartels and the violence they are bringing into Vegas.

Once you win your millions, take a walk through the various resorts and check out the sights.

The Luxor, Bellagio, Planet Hollywood (formerly Aladdin), The Mirage, The Forum, NY-NY, The Palms (Playboy Club) the list is almost endless.

Those places literally spend millions of dollars in decorations and displays for your enjoyment. Of course, they hope that you will enjoy their tables as well...

For a more toned down experience, you can check out Hoover Dam. It's only about a half an hour or so away.

There's a Bass Pro Shops right across the freeway from the area of the Luxor too.

Have a blast!

When I want a few years ago I went kayaking down the river that the Hoover Dam is on. We actually saw some sheep climbing on the rocky walls surrounding us. Stopped on the way down to have lunch and relax in a natural hot water spring. Next day we rode quads in the desert....a little lame as they only let you go 10mph. About 5 years ago I won a trip to the Richard Petty Driving School at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.....had a great time and I don't even follow Nascar. I ran about 120 mph around the track for 10 laps....check it out.

Tommy,
Fremont street is a blast (yes there is gambling) but it is old Vegas. I love people watching there and watching the free shows on the covered block long street (truely amazing). As stated all the Casinos have themes and most have shows or attractions that are free or low in cost... I went to a David Copperfield show on our last visit and got to go on stage and help with the show (real cool).

If you haven't already seen the Boulder/Hoover dam it's a must see ... The guided tour that takes you down to the 'power station' is very cool with a little historical background included, cost ya about $25 ... very inspiring construction/engineering feet ... also Shark reef @Mandalay Bay ( ok ) , Stratosphere, Eiful tower, Grand Canyon Helicopter tours !! Vegas is Vegas enoy the madness
