Some great information there guys. Thanks a lot! Can't wait now.
Been to Vegas 8 times, absolutely love the place. A few recommendations;
- try the Vegas Gun Store. There's plenty of shooting ranges in Vegas, but this one is by far the best for choice & value. The marshalls aren't just experts, they're friendly and welcoming. This place suits everyone, from novices to experts. It's located about 2 miles off the strip, down Tropicana Avenue, just past the (only) little British pub in the area, called Crown & Anchor. A taxi ride should be anywhere from $10-$15, and the staff at the Gun Store will gladly call you a taxi to take you back to the strip.
- The top of the Stratosphere hotel is a must see. It's 108 floors high, and they have 4 rides up there, which are guarenteed to **** you up. Even if you're not a thrill seeker, the viewing platform is spectacular. It's good during the day, but quite surreal at night.
- Skyfall Lounge at the top of Delano, next to Mandalay Bay. It's a panoramic lounge/bar set 64 floors up, which gives you beautiful views of the strip. It's been renovated lately, but back when it used to be called Mix Lounge, they used to give out complimentary champagne at sunset. Not sure if they still do, but worth checking out, for the view alone.
- See a show or two. I highly recommend David Copperfield. Don't care what anyone says, they guy can actually do real magic
- Do the open top bus tour. It costs about $30, and lasts 2 hours, stopping at multiple points up and down the strip & Downtown. It's the perfect way to see everything without walking the 5 mile strip. It's Well worth it, but as an added bonus, your ticket is valid for 2 days, so you can hop on & off whenever & wherever you like.
- If you like animals, try Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden in The Mirage Hotel. It's got a massive Dolphin arena & a White Tiger enclosure.
- whilst you're there, Catch the free Volcano show outside The Mirage. It lasts about 5 minutes, but is superb. You can feel the heat from 40 yards away.
- While I'm on free shows, don't miss The Bellagio's Fountains. This was one I never thought I'd be interested in, but I actually thought was spectacular. Every 15 minutes they play a different song, and the fountains dance to different routines. The best song by far is Andrea Bocelli's Time to say goodbye.
- Take a Helicopter tour over the Strip at night
- Never been myself, but recently Vegas aquired it's first ever big sports franchise. The Las Vegas Golden Knights are the newest NHL team, and are tearing up records left right & centre. They play at the brand new T-Mobile Arena, located between New York New York & Monte Carlo.
Tbh I could go on & on, but these are the things I'd highly recommend. If you want more specific info on restaurants, bars, clubs, gambling, hotels I'd be happy to help.
