DH and I are attending a convention late June and have a full, empty day before flying home on Red Eye. We're retired, not 'outdoorsy' and looking for a way to fill the day w/o losing our shirts in a casino. NOt into 'daredevil', but wouldn't mind a fun tour, interesting side trip or show that would let us get to airport by 9PM. Any suggestions welcome and appreciated.


Two young retirees restless to GO!
Life is too short to wait too long to do all we want to do!!
Go and enjoy!!

Anything outside can be brutal even just walking down the strip. If you have a car the Ethyl M candy factory is good for a tour but some miles from the strip. The Bellagio Conservatory display and other art works both there and the Wynn are worth seeing. Then for a fun/cheap show look up the Mac King comedy magic show at 1 & 3 pm at Harrah’s. Discount tickets for around $15 are available with a player’s club card. Then, Freemont street downtown is a free freak show all day every day that you can tell your friends about but without pictures of the 300lb. guy with only a diaper on they won’t believe you. It doesn’t cost anything to watch and people watching in Vegas is probably one of the best shows around. “Honey, remember the money I gave you and told you not to give it to me? Well, give it to me.” Enjoy, I’ll be in a poker room or sports book.

Can't post a link but if your game $150 or so each for a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. Most last 4-6 hours. Just google las Vegas helicopter tours.

While waiting do a Google search for `las vegas tourism'. For about $100 each you can take in a show.

For me the outdoor (free) fountain show at the Bellagio is a must, especially at night.

The wife and I went and the best part of the trip was a quick trip to the Hoover Dam, we rented a jeep at the hotel and went and did the tour. It is quite a bit of walking and stairs though, but it was nice and cool in the dam.
