    Hi Jim,

     

    That's a very big question.  I've been to Vegas a few times on business and then insisted on taking the family there.  I thought that it was one of those 'once in a lifetime must do' places.  Very artificial but very special.

     

    My suggestions of 'must do' items ..

    1. Bellagio Fountains … stunning fountains to music … they used to do an Andrea Bocelli piece that was awesome

    2. Olive restaurant … but book in advance and demand a patio table … best of both worlds - good food and the Bellagio fountains … I have found that early evening is the best time.

    3. Select one of the Cirque du Soleil shows … Ka is my favourite (at MGM) … my wife and my 26 year old son loved it.

    4. Do a trip to the Grand Canyon South Rim … we took a light plane to the Grand Canyon Village and then a helicopter ride over the canyon … stunning views and we had a chance to look around the village too.  The flight took us over the Hoover Dam … amazing perspective from the plane.

    5. Walk through the big themed hotels … Ceasar's Palace ceilings are stunning; the gondolas in the Venetian are quite striking; Freemont Street light show - pretty amazing.

    6.  Have a 'limited' gamble … my wife loves a short spree on roulette
