What are some good shows and restaurants in Las Vegas?

Hello all! I will be travelling to Las Vegas for 4 days with my wife in 2 weeks and was wondering what shows would be at the top of your lists to see while we are there. I have been looking at various websites and there are so many to choose from. We plan to take in 2-3 shows while we are there and would like to make the most of our trip. Also if there are any suggestions for good restaurants and any other attractions that you could suggest, I would really appreciate it. Thanks

    On a recent trip to Las Vegas, we saw Phantom of the Opera and absolutely loved it.  It ends sometime this month.  We also saw Celine Dion and loved it, too.  We saw Dancing with the Stars and thought the theatre was horrible.  The show was okay, but I was disappointed in it.

     

    The breakfast buffet at the Cosmopolitan is outstanding.  We also had dinner at the J. W. Marriott and were impressed with the prix fixe menu.

     

    We took a steamboat trip to Hoover Dam that we enjoyed.  A drive through Red Rock Canyon was interesting.  My husband also enjoyed a visit to Shelby American.  They give a free tour there if you enjoy that sort of thing.

    The KITCHEN at the top of Bally's is great.  Buffet at Golden Nugget downtown is wonderful.  Spend an evening on Fremont Street.  It is great.  Much different from the Strip. 

     

    BEST restaurant is at an old small casino called Jerry's Nugget.  It looks like a cafe........ FOOD is fabulous and inexpensive.  Worth the cost of a cab even.  Their prime rib is great and under $15.  DO not get the large unless you want a Fred Flintstone side of beef in front of you.  In addition, there is a 40 page DESERT menu.  Save room.  They are all fresh and homemade.

     

    If you have a car........ take a drive out to Red Rock Canyon.  Just head west on Charleston.  It is amazing.  If you continue up the mountain they have a wonderful place to eat up in the forest.

    I am assuming you will have a car. I would recommend Lawrey's the Prime Rib. It is pricey, but very good. For Italian I would recommend Maggiano's Little Italy.The Wicked Spoon Buffet in the Cosmopolitan is great. For shows I would suggest one of the Cirque de Soleil shows. If you do a Cirque I would not recommend sitting up front, there is to much to see. Sitting farther back is better.

    I go to Vegas quite a bit and really have enjoyed all of the Cirque shows.  LOVE at the Mirage is great. Mystere at Treasure Island is one of the orignial Cirque shows there and is very good.  I have seen O which is the Cirque show on the water and is at the Bellagio or atleast it was. KA at the MGM Grand is great as well.  I saw Dancing with the Stars as well which is at The Tropicana.  I enjoyed it but was with my best friend and we are DWTS's fans anyway.  We had great seats up front but do agree that it wouldn't be for everyone.  There are some newer Cirque shows at the Wynn and the Encore that I haven't seen. Along with some of the newer hotels in the City Center area.  Seeing a concert is always good if you can get tickets.

    Jersey Boys is an excellent show, now at the Paris.  LOVE at the Mirage was also great.  Restaurants:  Wicked Spoon + DOCG @ the Cosmo.  Craftsteak @ MGM.  Ping Pang Pong @ the Gold Coast for good authentic Dim Sum.

    Shows: George Wallace (great comedy), Cirque shows, Rita Rudner (but may not be here now)

    Hotel: We stay at the Chateau nearly every time.  Nice to have a suite (living room, kitchen) instead of a standard hotel room.

    Sites: Definitely Hoover Dam, Red Rock Canyon is nice, and if I remember correctly you can get to Grand Canyon in a few hours

    Others:  If you like shopping don't miss the Forum Shops, Bellagio shops, Fashion Show Mall, Venician Shops.  High quality goods, ... pricey, but quality is worth it.

      To get to the Grand Canyon would require a full day and it is to the West Rim and accessed through an Indian reservation and one has to pay a fee.  This is nice but the best view of the GC is from the south rim.  If this interest you, the Sky Walk is there, it is on the Indian reservation and is expensive but you do feel like you are walking on air.  You can see down into the canyon through glass.

       

      I also like the Chateau.  It is quiet and smoke free in the building and walkable to much of the strip or you can take the bus.  I think it was about $7 for 24 hrs and goes up and down the strip.

        That is good advice!

         

        Am going there in January, and am glad you have shared with all of us.

         

        It makes a lot of sense, and I will take your advice.

    The JW is great but a bit far from the shows on the strip. It does have great golf and restos on the property. As for shows I can only recommend any of the Cirqe du Solie (sp?) and Blue Man Group. Hoover Dam is a must.
