    I have been to Hoover Dam 4 times. While very interesting and informative, and I am happy to
    have done it once, I went about 3 times too many.
    Took my buddy, my daughter, My girlfriend, my sister and mother. WHEW! That DAM Tour!

    I would do the Liberace Museum Tour again, if it was still available. Did it about 3 times,
    and found it fascinating.

    We've visited CSI: The Experience a handful of times.

    My bride's favorite part is when Grissom gives you your instructions to begin the experience. She's like a kid in a candy shop there!

    We've done all of the crime scenes, but my bride is convinced we've missed some important details so we have to keep coming back on subsequent trips.

    I've come to call The Experience the more expensive entrance to the CSI gift shop! :D

    I can't even think of something I've done too many times. If I did it that much in Vegas, i thoroughly enjoy it.

    Hey Richard,
    Is csi experience appropriate for teenagers? Last trip I was going to have my two teenagers to do it but didn't had enough time and thinking about doing it next time... they are 15/17 old

    What has become a turn off to me over the past few years has been the complete madness at the pools. Way too overcrowded.

    I'm with everyone who said "lose money" lol.
    For me though- going downtown. Its just not for me. But whenever we travel with others they always want to go downtown and I never seem to enjoy myself.

    As for the pools, its one thing I've never done. Not once in my 16+ trips have I ever even gone to the pool at any resort I've stayed in.

    I believe it is. There were quite a few families that had tweens and teens with each time we were there.
    The crime scene, labs, etc. are pretty cool.

    I met a family on one of our trips who'd never seen any of the CSI shows before and the whole family was having a great time.

    A lot of youth were really on task--motivated to solve the case before their parents! :D

    I'm kind of burned out staying downtown over the past few years and I'm not really pumped up to get back to the strip yet after a three or four year hiatus. I decided to mix it up a bit on my next trip and stay at the South Point. I'll be Ubering to the strip and downtown, to be sure, but I just want to stay at a place that has good gambling and off the beaten path. Also, to echo what Breeze said about the pools, I'm looking forward to being able to go to the pool without all the massive crowds and craziness. I really enjoy Vegas but after 35 years of going I figure it might be time to trying something a little different.

    Getting up at craps, then staying too long and losing it all back.

    And, yeah, just 1 tour of Hoover should be good enough.

    "One and Done"
    Atomic Museum with area 51 - crowded - the actual museum was okay, the area 51 is completely not worth any extra money.
    Bodies Exhibit @ Luxor - seen it in other cities...nothing changed
    Shark Reef @ Mandalay Bay - I've been to similar places many times..
    Madame Tussauds @ Venetian - meh
    Mob Museum - half the exhibits were broken and it was so crowded we couldn't see or read anything.
    Neon Boneyard - lovely...but I've seen it and nothing has changed
    Hoover Dam Tour - The Best Dam Tour...yeah it does get old.
    Grand Canyon West - 6 hours round trip on a bumpy bus to say - well...technically you've seen the Grand Canyon...I guess.
    Grand Canyon West Skywalk - we will sell you our overpriced photo packages!
    Sleep In A WigWam - rt 66 Winsow AZ (as part of an overnight for Grand Canyon South) - Just do a drive by and take a few pics outside instead.

    "Do-Overs"
    Hoover Dam - drive out there yourself - park on the FREE side
    Lake Mead - worth the drive - do a sunset cruise - feed the carp off the pier.
    Grand Canyon South - totally worth an overnight trip - catch sunrise AND sunset if you can.

    yikes that's just a small amount but I'll stop there

    Being "Long hauled" is a crappy experience.
    It's happened a few times over 2 decades - but it still ruins my mood for a bit.
    "Why do they pull this sh*t ?" --- always runs thru my head, first - as I'm about to deal with
    the sack of crap in the front seat.
    And I NEVER know how I'll handle it until THAT VERY MOMENT. ( explosive or calmly ).
    *
    The great experience ?
    when the moment that Royal Flush appears on my VP screen --
    my breath is kinda taken away........and then ALL THOSE CREDITS begin rolling up !
    I ALWAYS order a comp'd Victory Beer - and sit smiling for a bit !..........just looking at the screen for awhile !

    You've averaged 6 posts a year and have started 7 threads in the last 2 days.

    Nothing wrong with that, just interesting. Carry on. :cool:

    True. I was unable to go to Vegas from 2012 until 2016. That was a long, horrible drought for me. When
    not being able to actually go, it kind of dampens my enthusiasm for reading and posting on the Vegas boards.
    But being able to go 3 times last year, I am back! And I have a Memorial Day weekend planned out too!
    So, that gets me posting more. Also...it is possible, ( but I admit no guilt ) that I may sometimes get really
    bored at work on a slow Saturday! LOL

    4th trip to Vegas this year; 4th time staying at MB. Next time we go, we seriously need to stay somewhere else, lol...

    I almost had the wife convinced of Cosmo with the balcony room but then we weight how much busier the mid-strip hotels are; smaller pool then MB; much busier lobbies / casinos and I'd rather just walk / get the car and go visit for a few hours.

    Next time; probably Wynn or Bellagio and if she really really wants to go in a lazy river, we'll just get a day pass and go to MB.
