What are some activities that you enjoy and usually do on your trips that are not the typical activities usually mentioned on the board? These are mine... 1. Tour Hotels I normally tour hotels like off-strip hotels, timeshares and condos, as well as inns and motels. I figure I want to view these places before I try them or I am learning whether they would make a good alternative on an expensive weekend/period in Vegas. 2. Multiple-Hotel Stay Ironically I also stay in several hotels on my trips because I like trying different places and it gives me a sense of whether I would return. This gives me the feeling of a multi-vacation vacation. Staying at multiple hotels is an activity all it's own because I take lots of pictures when I enter and look forward to writing about them when I write my trip report. Note that recently I learned that this was only feasible when I am going with extremely light luggage like a backpack and a purse and not with full-on rolly-poley-oley luggage. 3. $1 massages You know those black $1 massage chairs scattered about in CET properties? I love those. So far in Vegas I have had a massage in two shops and one spa on the strip and all of them were not very good. In fact, I left all of these places more tense than I came. These chairs give me a quick fix for 5 minutes for 1 buck. I wouldn't say it takes off the weight of the world but it sure is fun and ironically it's better than the more expensive massages I have had. 4. Exploring new neighborhoods I took a bus to different parts of Vegas and its outskirts. i can safely say that without a car, it is not worth it and some places feel very seedy to walk in or to wait for the bus in. If I drove in vegas, I would head to Green Valley Ranch, M Resort, Red Rock, Sunset Station, and Arizona Charlie's. I would not mind staying at Tahiti Village. I have done plenty of exploring of other neighborhoods but they all lead me back to the strip. 5. Adventuredome I am getting too old to stomach roller coasters but everything else?...Fair game! Throw in a circus, some midway games and an arcade...well this helps me relive my childhood. 6. Women-are-free pools Free is good...very good. Plenty of pools in Vegas let women in complimentary whether they are staying at the hotel or not. And since I love to explore and I love pools, it's perfect for me. Rio, Caesars and Palms pools are great for this!
