Add these items to your 'to-do' list

Dos: Bellagio waterfront—it’s free! It’s breath-taking! Gondola at the Venetian—so romantic!Treasure Island show—risqué! Nice fireworks! Drive a convertible at night—amazing sights! Shop à la vegas—especially if you've won big $$$!

Do go to dueling pianos at New York, New York. Best thing I did there, fun, energetic, singing, dancing, drinking, good times.

Do Do Do Do go to the Rehab Sundays at the pool in the Hard Rock Hotel. My husband and I stayed in that hotel and we though it was hot. People: If you are single, you better get there very early...the hottest young women and men in the planet are partying in that pool!! And don't forget you may be swimming a couple feet away from a Rock Star. Add to your to-do list on Las Vegas.

If you can, take the helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon—one of the most amazing experiences. Maverick Helicopters was great and we had champagne and snacks in the canyon itself. One of life's special times, much better memories then sticking money in a machine that may or may not love you back. Also visiting Red Rock Canyon at sunset and the Valley of Fire. Very beautiful and inspiring.

Do play the nickel slots...there's tons of them with almost every theme you can imagine.
Do tip the cocktail waitress if you want your drinks to keep coming.
Do use the personal safes in your hotel room.
Do spend $ on your hotel room and make sure you book a room on south Las Vegas Blvd. Trust me when I say that staying on south Las Vegas Blvd as opposed to north Las Vegas Blvd makes all the difference!!!!!
Posted by CowgirlFromHell on March 8, 2006

Do wear comfy shoes and don't forget the casinos give you free drinks while you gamble.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Cirque du Soleil yet. Saw Mystère at Treasure Island...am now addicted. It's expensive, but amazing—worth every cent.
Posted by stephstr on March 8, 2006

Do: See Bellagio lights at night. Fabulous. Check out Wynn and the waterfalls by the bar and Boulud's restaurant. Have a drink, enjoy the view. Go to one show—your choice. Don't just gamble. Cirques are fun. Avenue Q is funny. Celine, Barry, etc. Bring walking shoes—you can get a good workout in. Plan one night out for dinner. Splurge. There are great chefs there. Flay, English, Emeril. My choice is Boulud's in Wynn.
Posted by sc on March 22, 2006

Most of what I'm thinking has already been mentioned, but a couple items for comfort along with the comfortable shoes. Do carry lip balm and eyedrops...even at night. Do go to the buffet at the Rio, just take the free shuttle back. If you have more than a few days, take one of them for the Grand Canyon trip. Do get a comp card at Harrah's. I paid my first trip and have rooms comped on 5 subsequent trips, and you can get rooms at any of their properties that they now own from the Caesars acquisition. (No, I'm not a big spender either). Do take advantage of learning some table games like craps. Most casinos offer lessons in the a.m. If you enjoy them, give it a try with your gambling money. The odds are better than slots, just make sure to find a $5 minimum table. Do try something new each visit. Most important, have fun whatever your preference is...there is something for everyone.

Do take a night to visit Fremont Street. It is so much different than the Strip. The light show is just amazing and it is free!! So cool to watch all the tourists staring up at the canopy. You get to see the Famous "Vegas Vic" and his girlfriend "Sassy Sal." Piano players, magic tricks, cheaper food and a good time. Beware of the taxis—they end up costing you more than twenty bucks from the Strip—not bad if you are sharing the cost.
Posted by MissGov06 on April 25, 2006

Don’t: Wear high heels if you’re walking on the Strip—it’s bad for your feet and posture. It just does not look good unless you're 'working' off the strip. Don’t concentrate on 1 or 2 hotels/casinos, there are so much to see! Don’t worry about where to eat—like casinos, there are restaurants or buffets in every corner. Don’t forget your camera—capture every moment, everywhere! Don’t sleep too much—you’ll miss out on a lot!!!
Posted by LOVINGVEGAS on March 8, 2006

Don’t rent a car—traffic on the strip is awful. There is plenty of public transportation—tram from Bellagio to Monte Carlo and another from MGM all the way to the Las Vegas Hilton. Posted by pixie on March 8, 2006

Don’t go to those time shares to get a free lunch or something. They are a waste of Vegas time.
Posted by Loved Las Vegas on March 8, 2006

Do not not not go to the Blue Man Group, it is the most expensive and stupidest show I have ever seen. The climactic finish involves them throwing toilet paper all over the whole audience, and then raising their arms as if something special has happened. Absolute waste of everything.
Posted by Vegas Rocks on March 8, 2006

Don’t waste your time inline for tickets. Book early and make the reservation online or over their toll-free number and pick it up before the show.
Posted by LOVINGVEGAS on March 8, 2006

Don’t go to Vegas in July unless you plan to stay inside the whole time. Believe me, we are used to heat in Houston, Texas where it is hot eleven months out of the year (no joke) but the heat in Vegas was unbearable even at night. They said something about it being a dry heat. Whatever it was, I've never experienced anything like it and it felt like I was literally in an oven and suffocating at the same time. The most relief from the heat came when we were in the "river" pool at the MGM Grand.
Posted by Pam Bradford on March 8, 2006

Don’t start drinking too early. Most of the fun happens @ night and you don’t wanna pass out too early.
Don’t waste $ on a rental car. Almost anywhere you need to go in Vegas you can walk or take a shuttle.
Don’t leave your belongings unattended (duh) and Ladies...... always always keep your $ in your bra, or keep one hand over your closed & fastened purse to avoid pick pockets.
Don’t forget your ID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don’t trust strangers.
Don’t do anything dumb to get yourself kicked out.
Posted by CowgirlFromHell on March 8, 2006

Don’t:
Play the slots at the airport; plenty more where those came from.
Even look at the people handing out the trashy cards/offers, etc. on the Strip.
Go to the Stage Deli at MGM. There's no there, there. You have to eat in the smoky, Sportsbook. Better choice is Carnegie Deli in Mirage. You can check out the tigers when you're done.
Fight the urge to go in the M&M store. Go inside. Just think of it as another museum of pop culture.
Hold up traffic and expect everyone will wait 20 seconds for you to take a photo.
Posted by sc on March 22, 2006

Do not walk between the Rio and the Strip at night....Between you is an area where you may encounter pervs (from the Adult Superstore), gang bangers, transients, drunk truckers, and many other seedy characters. Gunfire has been known to break out from unknown places.
Posted by TG on March 23, 2006

Don’t try to walk from Fremont Street to the strip. It's more dangerous than the walk from Rio.
Posted by mnm on April 16, 2006

Don’t know if any else has mentioned this but don’t bring the kids!!!! Vegas is a place for adults, plain and simple. I know there are certain casinos/venues (Circus Circus, M&M World) that are tailored towards families and kids but if you want to take the children to a vacation go to Disneyland. Vegas isn't the only city that has strip clubs, and other adult entertainment but it is so much more prevalent and in your face than in your hometown. If you decide to ignore my recommendation, you might have to answer little Jimmy when he asks "Daddy, why is that lady on that billboard spreading her legs at me?"

Green-eyed lady, lovely lady
Strolling slowly towards the sun
Green-eyed lady, ocean lady
Soothing every ragin' wave that comes
Green-eyed lady, passions' lady
Dressed in love
She lives for life to be
Green-eyed lady feels life
I never see
Setting suns and lonely lovers free.

Green-eyed lady, wind swept lady
Rules the night, the waves, the sand
Green-eyed lady, ocean lady
Child of nature, friend of man
Green-eyed lady, passions' lady
Dressed in love
She lives for life to be
Green-eyed lady feels life I never see
Setting suns and lonely lovers free.

* name changed to protect the innocent
