    Hey everyone
    I (female) will be turning 21 two days into my upcoming Vegas vacation in July and am looking for one more thing to add to my big day to make it unforgettable. Some ideas I had come up with were jumping from the Stratosphere , doing the indoor skydiving, or doing a Richard Petty driving experience. All of these seem amazing, but the last two seem to be pricey for what you get, and the first one..well to be honest I don't know if I'd have the guts to actually do it.
    So, What are some other over-the-top ideas? Already going to be shopping my brains out, having a nice meal at Trevi, and of course gambling, so want tomsehing to top it all off. Want something not too time-consuming, and preferably under $200.

    You should check out Drink and Drag which is Downtown on Fremont Street on the 2nd floor of the Neonopolis area. That place is so much fun!! We went there after my daughter's wedding and they were wonderful to us. In fact my daughter did her bouquet toss there. Great drinks and fun people!!

    My son did the RPDE and loved it for his 21st bday trip. I got a certificate off of eBay and saved a boatload. My daughters 21st, we did a show and nice dinner and then her and my niece tried to do some clubbing, but didn't get very far with the prices, lol. Then they just walked around and has a blast without mom and dad :thumbsup:

    My husband did the Strat jump and loved it, while I about died watching him from the bottom. The indoor skydiving always looked interesting, just never got around to it.

    Would shooting machine guns be fun for you?

    Whatever you choose, have a great, SAFE time!!

    I would travel to Red Rock Canyon and go hiking and see the Petroglyphs. It's only 20 miles outside of Vegas. There are numerous stops/hiking trails along the way to experience Las Vegas like you've never seen it. If you have a car you can then stop at Red Rock Casino upon exiting the Canyon for some food. There are numerous Native American sites including the Agave Pit. There will be many rock climbers to view. It doesn't matter if you've never hiked, the trails range from rediculously easy to expert. Bring your camera/cell and water and you will get a taste of history and the beauty of Las Vegas just a few miles from the slot machines.

    What about $500 dinner? I have read some crazy trip reports with stuff like that.

    If you like the Clubs there is a Club Crawl that you may like.

    Take $1000 and make a single bet at a table or use it in the slot machine for Max bet.

    Run topless through the casino. :wink2:

    Try the Frozen Vodka Bar.

    There are so many more options. What makes a Vegas trip unforgettable for one may not do it for another. Our first Vegas trip was unforgettable and we did the most basic things.

    Are you talking about The Gun Store with the machine guns? I totally forgot about that! I think that might just be perfect! Something I definitely could not do here in Canada..! Although that Strat jump looks mighty tempting...

    See if you can combine the two and do a Strat jump while shooting a machine gun. :wink2:
