Zoner! You're going to Vegas?? So'm I!

I like to go to the top of the Stratosphere, too. I like to go to the top of any tall building, though.

Things to do in Vegas...

Definetly lean on the wall out in front of the Bellagio and watch the fountains dancing to pre-recorded music.

Have a wonder around inside Mandalay Bay, it's got a nifty lobby. Also in the Mandalay Bay I believe there's a station that lets you get on a monorail that takes you around the strip - it's worth half an hour.

Don't forget to watch the FREE PIRATE FIGHT ACT THINGIE SHOW that takes place outside (I believe it's Mandalay Bay) at regular intervals.

It's just a really great atmosphere to be out and walking around at night. Nice place to visit, heck I wasn't of gambling age but I still thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Both of you are going to love that. the Canyon is just incredible. its one of the best things, most impressive, that you can see, really. Choose the right tour, there are many things you can see on the way, ok Hoover is logical,.. btw Barbra Streisand lives near there. Route 66 must be somewhere on the way too? There´s shops with Native Indian souvenirs you can take, etc.



have a good time

Don't forget to go down Fremont Street and see the light show. When we were there for Elevation, we saw an off duty Elvis impersonator eatting dinner in the Plaza diner.
I also won $75 on the slots in the Golden Nugget. Cha-ching!!
I've heard, and maybe someone can confirm or deny, that the payouts are bigger in the old section of town to draw in the tourists?

About 30 to 45 minutes.


I keep trying to get Steve to eat at one of those Bono's hot dog places, but a veg at a hot dog joint doesn't work that well.
