Beyond the great advice form Trailblazer, you will find several *front yard shows* - things that are free and outside - like the Bellagio fountains, and several thing inside the circuitous shopping malls like is Caesar's. The lions are gone form MGM, and the private battle is from from Treasure Island (TI) but there are still PLENTY of things to see as you stroll. And got to Fremont - the OLD Las Vegas - and go to the Mob Museum (yes, those are REAL COPS giving the tours - Ok . . . .) and the Boneyard where all the old neon sign are kept. I frankly and not a fan of the overhead light show on Fremont St. - others rave. And we gamble penny and nickel slots - just as much fun for us, even though we COULD afford to spend more - but that is not our choice. Walk thru every casino and hotel lobby you can - they are gorgeous! You do NOT have to spend a ton on food - we do NOT like buffets, because we just plain cannot stuff ourselves that much, and we like our food cooked FOR US - not on a steam table. Again - others rave. We have gotten Restaurant.com coupons before we left home, and eat off the Strip. We also own a timeshare in Las Vegas (Marriott Grand Chateau) - next to MGM. So it has a full kitchen, and we can reheat leftover, and we make one supermarket run and then make out own breakfasts and sometimes lunch - depends - I am not there to COOK, but cannot eat out 21 meals a week and not feel awful. If you know ANYONE who owns a Marriott timeshare, they can get you a good discount - we did this for our son/DL/2 friends, and they got a villa for $99 a night. No, you do not have to sit thru any kind of timeshare meeting (although this is how we bought ours - LOVING having it and trading out for all over the world.) Again - opinions on OWNERSHIP vary greatly - mainly from people who do NOT have any. You can have a GREAT TIME and not break the bank - but I hope you break the CASINO'S bank!! My DIL ran $20 into $2700 in one afternoon - just on slots!
