    I will be renting a car one day while I'm in Vegas and want to check out some off strip casinos. I collect casino chips, so even if some are dumpy I may just run in, grab a chip and leave.

    Right now I plan on going to the neon boneyard in the morning and then working my way to the M resort for dinner.

    Stops:
    Palace station
    Gold Coast
    The orleans
    Ellis Island
    Terribles
    Hard Rock
    Silverton
    South Point
    M resort

    Any other suggestions? Anything at any of these that are a must see? I'm sure Terribles and Ellis island are not much to look at, just stopping for the chips.

    I think you have a nice list there.

    I love hitting the out of the way places. i likes sams town and the cannery.

    I was suprised at how nice some of these places are.

    I would give Red Rock a look, online, to see if you might want to stop in. It is worth the trip, especially if you would like to drive to Red Rock Canyon.

    I say red rock should be on that list as well.

    If you're a chip collector then there are several other casinos to go to that are near red rock. Santa Fe station, sun coast, and rampart. All are pretty close to each other.

    Maybe you're already aware of this, but if you plan on hitting up the Neon Boneyard, you may want to buy your tour ticket(s) in advance. You can buy tickets online here: http://www.neonmuseum.org/

    M resort for the buffet,silver ton last for their graveyard specials, and egg nog at Ellis.

    If you're a collector a good rare chip is across from silverton the Ta gas station has bj tables! "Alamo casino"

    I'd recommend stopping in Henderson too for el dorado and others, driving down boulder strip from there past jokers wild, eastside cannery, Arizona east, sams town, boulder station, and more.
    That's a segment that could be just nonstop chip collecting if you start at m resort and work down. I've been to every casino in the valley that has table games so if you have any specific questions let me know!

    Thanks everyone for the tips, I think I will add Red rock to the list and the surrounding casinos. That Alamo casino in the gas station is exactly the type of place I'm looking for. Thanks again.

    silverton has a huuge salt water aquarium as soon as you walk in the door.

    the whole casino is super nice including the buffet atmosphere.

    I might add Sam's Town, Cannery (both of them), and Aliante (formerly Station), but only if you're already in the neighborhood for any of them. All of them are fun, but none of them are especially worth a long drive just to see them.

    Aliante is way, way, off the beaten path.
