    Trip number 29 coming up T-13.
    I have seen a lot but am sure there are some must see's and do's that I am not aware of.

    Looking to catch some things that i have missed in the past or was not aware of.

    Fire away board!

    Might be easier if you told us what you have seen. Otherwise, you are going to get the standard answers of the Dam, Mt Charleston, Valley of Fire, Red Rock etc. And will you have a car?

    I agree with Joe. I mean, I have my "Must Sees" for Vegas virgins, or people who have barely been, but if this is trip 29 for you it's going to be hard to suggest something that you probably haven't already done. And, if you haven't done it in 29 trips, hard to determine if you'd be interested in doing it on this one.
    Still though, respect on the big 2-9 :nworthy: How many years have you been going there?

    The standard answer of things you should probably already know about is:

    Luv-it Frozen Custard
    Pinball Hall of Fame
    Frankies Tiki Room
    West Wind Drive in Theatre


    For new vegas experiences

    Maybe get drunk and watch the sun set off the Lou Ruvo center for Brain Health?

    Wear a suit of 20 dollar bills and run through the Alphabets?

    Rent a Bentley and let a young African-American friend drive around while you follow in a rental car and time how long it takes the LVPD to get him spread-eagled on the hood.

    Clark County Shooting Range. You can rent guns and ammo right there for less than the price of a movie ticket. It's new, it's clean, the setting is beautiful in front of Gass Mt. and the staff is very very friendly. What better way to feel like you're out west than to shoot guns. We do it and it's absolutely AWESOME!!!!

    Said tongue in cheek? Because after 40++ trips! I've only ever heard of the pinball HoF being mentioned by anyone.

    Pinball HOF has lots of fans on this board and it is frequently mentioned as a destination.

    Well if he's been there 29 times already, I assume he's had to have already learned this one :thumbsup:

    Personally I've always wanted to do that Exotics Racing and take a Ferrari or a Lambo around the track.

    I enjoyed the atomic museum, it is sort of over by Terrible's. But then again I grew up diving under my desk in grade school.

    I made my first trip there in October. My brother was along and we had a blast in the place and I am definitely going back next trip.

    I think I got him on a new Vegas thing- DuPars in Golden Gate. He had never been and I had so I talked him into the shrimp, he fell in love with it. Can't complain about $2.99

    Oh, and Carrot Top - the show you thought you never wanted to see, but glad you did

    Sams Town Christmas

    The shooting range sounds interesting.
