I highly recommend Blue Man Group - it's a percussive feast for your eyes.

4.5 / 5 stars (for the Chicago show - I'm sure Vegas would hold it's own)

30g long planted fw
1 blue gourami
6 rummy nose tetras
6 gold barbs
3 peppered cory cats
1 'maldito' cory cats=
1 yoyo loach
1 clown pleco
6 ghost shrimp

There are no coincidences.

Hi. I've been to Vegas several times and stayed at a different resort each time. So far, for the price and experience, Monte Carlo was the best. My husband and I went right after he came back from Iraq one time and we wanted a soothing, romantic atmosphere. Our room at Monte Carlo wasn't the standard room, it had a whirlpool tub for two in the room (by the window looking at the strip) in addition to the bathroom with a steam shower! Whoo hoo. It was a really nice room and the price was the same as a standard room at the other 'big theme' hotels.

The only downside to Monte Carlo, if you consider it one (which I didn't), is that they don't have a mall inside their building. They have just a few shops and a few places to eat. The casino is nice and clean and looks upscale, but had a variety of min. tables. It is also centrally located and Lance Burton was great.

Harrah's was okay - we got to wake up a 8 AM everyday to construction noises.
Riviera was not okay - It was our first trip and paid for by someone else.
Golden Nugget was great - very nice, but we still like spending time on the strip.

Venetian and Ceasar's would probably be among my top choices. Paris is nice, but wasn't for me.

If Rita Rudner is there, you should definitely see her. She has been the best show for the money. You're in a small(ish) room and she's hysterical. The intimate setting really gets the audience into it and she has a clean act.
Blue Man Group was great too, but a lot more $$.

That's enough. HTH Have a great time! Take your swimsuit -it's gonna be hot. 8)

thanks for all the tips guys! Well my husband wants us to stay at the paris, so I gues that will be our hotel. As for shows, I still can't decide! I'm not a big celine dion fan, but I keep hearing that its so wonderful. Sounds like blue man group is good, so I guess well decide when we go there. (hopefuly get some coupons!)

Hey meredith, maybe i'll see you there!! Let me know how the luxor is!
We loved the downtown the last time we were there. we spent most of our time playing there. (looser slots, more comps for less and lower table minimums) the fremont and the stratosphere are good places to play. stratosphere has single 0 roulette and crapless craps. the venetian and bellagio casinos are among the worst imo. high minimums, tight slots, really snooty too. I guess they have to be to have there behemoth resorts! the only plus i guess is the girls look nicer

As for it being hot, don;t remind me! The last time we went it was the middle of july and 114F in the day and the lowest at night was 97F. The moulding on my car door window melted! Its suppose to be 104F/87 the next few weeks, so thats a little better. we will probably be nocturnal while there(i am anyway).
I'm not sure if rita rudner is there or not. I know we'll just be missing elton johns show which i would like to see

Has anyone been to any of the spas? We were thinking of trying the one in the hotel.

God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!
