Besides all the tourist stuff that is....any "attractions" for an ATS member to enjoy that locals or other want to recommend?

I've never been there, I know nobody there. I'm going there for a few days on business and then out of the US again. Anything off the beaten path or just cool would be of interest, I'll have a little time to kill.

Thanks in advance...

my only advice is to order a room with only a shower, and no bath-tub

you don't want to wake after a good night out freezing, wet, and sore.

Have fun

Whenever my wife and I go to Vegas we visit casinos and take in all the sights. Just walking around is pretty good. No need to spend money. Then, on street corners, there are middle eastern guys handing out discount coupons for prostitutes. "Hoe money" I call it. We collect as many as we can. Some are quite interesting. The chumps handing them out have no idea at all. Totally clueless as to what it means to be in America. Vegas is great. Don't need to spend a friggin dime. More fun watching all the losers give their money away.

Should I watch my kidneys, too, do you think? You never know who might be roaming the halls with an obsidian scalpel and a chest of ice.

I see from your avatar you have a William Blake quote.
So I must ask, What Would William Blake Do?

That sounds like a lot of fun...maybe I should just do as you say, walk around and take in the sights, see what happens...that usually results in a lot of fun and often a fair amount of regret. It is to be expected, I have already factored the regret into my plans...

I would suggest the Cirque du Soleil at MGM, just awesome. Also a little fun at one of the casino nightclubs may be in order. maybe a chris angel show so much to do there have a blast.

Trust me when I say, don't use your credit card and leave the title to your car and the deed to your house to someone you trust, or put in a safety deposit box at the bank.

Also, go to Days in Town Hall, play the 3rd slot to the right just before going to the black jack tables. That one hits every night and bet the max. $1000, the 1st one also hits every night.

Go to the Gun Store on East Tropicana, I'm from England and the idea of getting a load of guns and being able to fire them was amazing!!

They have targets with Osama Bin Laden on them and like to shout "soot him in the head" while you are aiming.

The best thing my wife and I did on our Honeymoon!

If you can afford it, the VIP package is great!

Hope you have fun!

"the gun store" just about the most fun you can legally have in vegas

Was there in April this year and can't wait to go back.

Go Downtown, off the strip. Go visit old Vegas. Do it at night, the street scene is amazing.

Shows :

Cirque du Soleil - KA

Cirque du Soleil - O

The Phantom


Excellent shows. You will not be disappointed.

Go to Hoover Dam, it's really an amazing site to see.

All of the casinos are worth visiting, just for the different themes.

there's a cool old metal horse racing game at the MGM. i think it costs only .25 cents.
also there is a great pinball hall of fame there on the strip too.

if you book about 2 weeks in advance, there is a great old sign graveyard that's awesome to go see and take pictures.

Check your U2Us

Also camping outside the city is a great option but sounds like you wouldn't have time for that.

I can show you where the planes take off that go to Area 51, hows that for a ATS style Las Vegas trip? You could, if feeling frisky, even drive up to Area 51 and try to get in. There's also petroglyphs outside the city that are cool to look at, I don't remember where they are(there's some at the Red Rock loop but those may have been painted over by idiots) but I could look them up.

There are some really cool hikes not too far outside of town. There's a big cave that not too many people know of or can even find that's pretty cool to explore, the aforementioned Red Rock Loop has some cool hikes and there's Mount Charleston, 45 minutes away that has camping, hiking, lodges and is really quite nice this time of year as it's still pretty hot down here. It has been a mild summer so that's a plus for ya.

Go to Lake Mead, take a dip then go see the crazy bridge they built next to the dam - and you can go to Arizona real quick and say you were there also(it's just desert, nothing interesting).

They just passed new laws regarding street performers, it's now legal, so freaks are everywhere, especially downtown, the Fremont Street Experience. You'll see everyone, from Spider-Man to Kiss to freaking Elmo down there and on the Strip. Check out the neon sign graveyard, just north of downtown, where all the old signs from old Vegas are hanging out, it's pretty cool for me but I grew up here. There's a couple of museums there also that are supposed to be ok and there is also the old Mormon fort there which is the original building built when they settled here.

If I had my druthers, the first show on the Strip I would go see is Love, the Cirque Du Soleil/Beatles show at the Mirage. I'm an huge Beatles fan, though, your mileage may vary. There are loads of shows to see from Penn and Teller to Donny and Marie. Whatever floats your boat.

If you decide to go to a strip club, you best message me so I can go. Bloody hell if I'm going to get left out when boobies are involved.

For more ATS type activities, you can go and try to find John Lear and interview him, LMMFAO!!! I know he lives here, no clue where. Or George Knapp as he's based here.

Anyway, have fun! If you need a guide or someone to hang with, I'm available. It's not like I have a job to go to, as there are none available here, so I've got some free time. BUT, if you want to go up in the Stratosphere tower, you are on your own. You can't pay me enough to up in that building(I don't trust it and never will).

Learn craps if you don't know it. Best odds around. Used to be the Golden Nugget upped 'em even more.
Live to tell about it. Good luck.

Out of interest, why don't you trust the Stratosphere tower?

Do you know something we dont?

It is extremely scary when you go on that ride. It does wobble when you take the train and when you go on the ride that goes up and down straight. That thing got me freaked.

They are having a cigar afficiandos meeting for a week in Oct - so if you like cigars, check it out if you are there at the same time.

Otherwise - don't gamble. It's pointless. But they have awesome shows and it's fun to walk to strip. Definitely check out the fountain in front of the Bellagio as they do water shows every 10 minutes. I could sit there for hours.

And as others have stated... the gun store is actually interesting. Where I'm at, I can shoot all the time (and do), so the range isn't too big a deal... but it was still fun when I was there last.

Two things.

One of the legs is built wrong. They say it's structurally sound but who are they and why should I trust them?

The second was a dream. I'm over forty now and have only remembered a handful of dreams in my life. The most vivid of those was falling to my death off that blasted building. I'll trust my gut on this one.

Seriously, my idea of fun is not being virtually thrown off a 1,000 foot building or hanging off it while spinning. I don't do heights very well.
