    Red Rock is a nice drive. There is also a pull-off area about 1/2 way through the drive where you can take a short walk to a spring. It's a nice diversion for 1/2 a day. Be sure to stop at Red Rock casino which is gorgeous. From the roof of the parking garage at Red Rock is a spectacular view of the valley if you happen to be there in the evening when the whole city is lit up. Also, if you're coming in from the East Coast and are on East Coast time getting up early is easy. I come in from Philly and love watching the sun come up with a Starbucks in my hand from the top of that garage. Lastly, most people drive the loop by starting out at Charleston Blvd and ending at Blue Diamond but I find the views are more stunning if you start at Blue Diamond and drive towards Charleston.
    Oh, and welcome to the board!

    Welcome to VMB! There is some great food in Vegas. Are you going to be willing to drive, or do you want to stick close to Luxor? We can give you better recommendations if you give us some info about your preferences and your budget. I'd hate for us to send you to a $150 steak dinner when you had $15 tacos in mind. :)
