    We will be in Vegas April 15th to the 24th. We have been to Vegas about 7 times but wanted to know if we were missing out on any items of interest or wonderful restaurants. . We will be mostly on the strip but also downtown one night. We would like to do or see some things that we don't normally do. We find ourselves going to the same places or restaurants. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I'll throw a few things out there for ya. Hopefully there's something new for you:

    Things to Do
    • Lucky Cat (Cosmo) - Get a fortune, and maybe win something (freeplay, stay, drinks)
    • Bellagio Art Gallery - Haven't done this myself, but their current Faberge gallery is getting pretty solid reviews
    • Titanic Exhibit (Luxor) - Just checked this out a couple of weeks ago and it was pretty solid.
    • Autos Collection (Linq) - Good collection of classic cars.
    • Dale Chihuly Gallery (Crystals-ish) - Handblown glass gallery. Not that big, but it's right outside one of the entrances to Aria.
    • Tourneau (Forum Shops) - The world's largest watch store.
    • Day Pass to a Spa - Go and chill at a spa for a few hours. Steam, sauna, hot tub and unwind. Day passes are usually $25-40. Would recommend Mandalay or Aria's spa.
    • Carrot Top - Great comedian, tickets are pretty cheap.
    • Hoover Dam - Rent a car or do a bus trip. Worth visiting once in a lifetime.
    • Red Rock Canyon - Drive through the park, enjoy the views.

    Things to Eat
    • Umami (SLS) - Grab an awesome burger
    • Della's (Delano) - Big fan of their Grilled cheese and tomato soup.
    • Five50 (Aria) - Grab a slice or order a whole pizza.
    • Border Grill (Mandalay) - Go for brunch on the weekend.

    Thanks JoJoR. We have only done a few of those. Looking forward to checking out these suggestions. Especially the Lucky Cat, Bellagio and that day pass sounds awesome.

    Recently we took a tour at the Neon Museum and were very impressed with the old signs. We have been coming to Vegas on and off for about 15 years. We were surprised at how many of the vintage signs in the boneyard we recognized. I would definitely recommend this as interesting and fun tour.

    The last couple of trips we did Adrenaline ATV's at Valley of Fire and the 3 wheeled scooters at Red Rock (those are sooooo cool). Both have been on Groupon(I don't know if they are on there currently).

    We wanted to take in Red Rock and do not rent a car so thought we'd have to do a tour. Where can you do this 3 Wheeled scooter trip? Thanks in advance.

    https://www.groupon.com/biz/las-vegas/scoot-city-tours

    Scoot City Tours. The price has gone up on Groupon, we paid $149 for 2 people, now it's $199 but still worth it IMHO. Those scooters are so damn cool and unique. They are even street legal (you will be driving them on the street to get to/from RR. The cost of admission to the park is included. The only downside to this (and this is the case with any tour to any place, such as Hoover Dam) is that you are on their schedule. You do stop several times within the park but you are with a group and can only stay at each stop as long as they allow for that stop. If you want to do any hiking or anything like that you don't be able to do it on this tour. The reviews on Tripadvisor are extremely high http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g45963-d1534917-Reviews-Scoot_City_Tours-Las_Vegas_Nevada.html
