    2nd time going to Vegas. Last time was an overnight trip, friend and i used Vegas as a turnaround point to head home back to Wisconsin.

    Taking a short trip end of this month. I arrive 8:30 Monday night the 30th, leave the 3rd around 1. I know, not much time, I've been considering adding the Friday to the stay but not sure if I will before I leave. Going solo not sure how entertained I will really be or whether not I'll get 'bored'.

    I did rent a car, staying at the Excalibur.

    Not a huge gambler, but I do visit our local Indian casino a few times a year.

    Plans so far include Heart attack grill visit, just to say I've done it.

    Visit Kounts Customs since I love classic cars.

    A visit to Fremont to see the sights.

    Getting some real Ramen since Milwaukee doesn't really have a good noodle house.

    Seeing a show for men(Fanstasy, Jubilee) something along those lines(after all I AM in VEGAS)

    Looking for other fun ideas that you can throw at me.

    Single male, 46 years old, looking for fun, excitement and some debauchery(don't get me arrested though!!).

    What have you got for me?

    777 at Main Street Station and Ellis Island have some great microbrews if you like good beer and they only run a couple bucks per pint. Enjoy the trip!

    Walk the strip and stop in to as many casinos as you can just to look around.

    Have a ridiculously priced fancy cocktail at Chandelier (Cosmo), Parasol Up/Down (Wynn) or any of the other hoity-toity bars/lounges on the strip.

    If you like beer, a stop at TAG lounge at Linq is a must. And overwhelming number of beers from which to choose and the ones under $10 (so I was told last Saturday) can be comped if you're playing 25ยข VP.

    If the budget allows, have a big ol' slab of beef at one of the umpteen great steakhouses in town.

    Check out Fremont and the surrounding casinos.

    Play the ever popular "spot the hooker" in the wee hours one night/morning.

    Welcome to VMB, gossamer! Another Cheesehead who loves VEGAS!
    I double thecarve's recommendation about walking around and just checking things out. "Spot the hooker" gets interesting when the hookers spot you first! Enjoy the freedom of traveling solo!

    Since you have a car, head west on Flamingo to Jinya Ramen - top shelf food at very moderate prices....

    thanks for the welcome and the ideas. Keep them coming please.

    Spot the hooker will be fun, but then again, if I'm solo and bored enough I may open up my wallet for a real treat LOL.

    Welcome to the board!
    I went to Counts Kustoms two weeks ago and I loved it! Danny Koker runs a first class operation with a free tour and super friendly staff. Plenty of cars, trucks and bikes to see and a gift shop of course. The location is only a few minutes west of the strip.

    Awesome. Some of my most memorable trips have been Vegas solo. I'll be there Dec 20-25 this year and so far going solo.
    Machine Gun range. That was a great time.
     
    Turning 40! UGH.....
