So I will be coming to Vegas for my birthday next week. My plan is to actually go see the Hoover Dam on Monday the 10th. I've been to Vegas many times but have never seen the Hoover Dam in all my trips and decided I'll knock it off the bucket list, unless I end up in some 13 hour poker tournament which I promised I wouldn't do this trip even though the WSOP is going on. Anyway I was wondering are there any must see's on the way to or back from the Dam. I have a rental car so I plan to drive and not do a bus tour. So are there are cool casino's or really anything of interest I should see? Or even a must eat? Last year was the first time I actually seen the Freemont Light Show. Only had been downtown 2 times before staying down there last year. Always playing poker at Binion's before when the shows were going on. So I thought I should knock off the Hoover Dam this trip since I promised myself no day long poker tournaments. Thanks for the help.
