We are going to Vegas for an extended weekend - we are not into the shows type of thing, but wanted to know what else is a must see. We will also be on foot - not renting a car so has to be within reasonable walking distance of our hotel which is not on the main strip, but a block or so off.

I grew up in LV during the late sixties. Don't waste your money on the strip or "glitter gulch". Rent a car and drive a couple hours in any direction to the most interesting and varied topography on the the globe. Take a picnic with you and go to Lake Mead/ Hoover Dam, or go north from there to Valley of Fires S.P. or go northwest to Mt. Charleston, or Southwest to Sandy Valley and on to Death Valley and circle around.
Anyone can just eat, drink and gamble, or watch cookie cutter shows in LV.
Challenge the blind.. Ay?


That will be the next trip - I have always wanted to go to Vegas and play some blackjack, something I've always wanted to do. So that is this go around. Next one is to go see the other sites that NV has to offer....
