The Paris has a nice restaraunt with outdoor seating - directly across from the Bellagio fountains.

Visiting different casinos will give you a flavor of the different target audiences.

Have a drink at the Ghost Bar (atop the Palms - I've stayed there a dozen times, but never made it to the top).

Cruise the Hard Rock - it is more of a bar than a casino. The crown is much younger and a tatoo seems to be a general requirement.

The Forum Shops make a nice walk through - but it is all high end merchandice and most of it can be found elsewhere (nothing really unique).

The Wynn is interesting from a design standpoint (he spent $$$$$) building this one. Again, worth a brief visit to get the flavor, but nothing "must see".

If you are headed out to the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam might be another quick side trip. It can be done in half a day.

BLS, where are you staying?

Also, kids, the Four Queens downtown was featured in the vid for Still Haven't Found.

Think of it this way: You'll be on a plane on a U2 junket. Could be worse!
