Palms is the best scene for the younger crowd and also has an amazing pool. If you stay at palms place (hotel next to it) it is cheaper and nicer. Its a 5 min cab ride from the strip. Palms has good clubs for young hot chicks, ghost bar and rain or something. And you don't have to wait in a long ass line for them.

Also check out O'sheas on the strip. Its like a college kids casino. It has beer pong, which is tons of cheap beer, or free if you keep winning and normally some hot chicks in there too.

The strip clubs are amazing. Can't remember the names cause I was hammered, but check them out. I wouldn't last 4 days in Vegas.

Stayed at the Flamingo a couple of times and loved the pool area. Liked the whole connection to Bugsy Siegel, nothing like a little history lesson while you're there. Caesars has a great sports bar and they have a pretty good indoor mall of stores and some restaurants.

When i went to Vegas it was catering to the family scene (just my luck), now i think they're trying to get back to straight dirt, which should be just what a college grad is looking for.

It's my preference, but I would rather pay a little bit more and get a place on the strip. Thats what sucks about the Stratosphere and the Rio as well. Both are so far away from everything else.

**** your friend, I'm winning that Corvette. The drawing is in November. ;)

Go to club Rain at the Palms at least once. Also, be careful going to the pools all day, every day. Drinking in the Vegas heat will sap you out if you're not careful.

Booking tomorrow, Flamingo it is.
Staying in a good location was a must, so it came down to hotels that were in the middle of the strip/relatively cheap/had a good pool, so Flamingo was an easy choice.

Also looked up O'Shea's, sounds like a kegger in a casino. Will try out the beer pong tournament for sure.

Pretty jacked, hope I can fit in everything into the 4 nights we're there. So many different bars and casinos to check out. Hopefully I won't sleep much there.

You won't be able to fit everything you want to do in 4 nights but you'll sure as hell have fun trying.

It's expensive but I thought Penn and Teller was a pretty funny show at the Rio.

Bump.

I'm going to Vegas in about a week...so I have similar questions about stuff to do. BUT;

-I am not 21.
-I am going with my girlfriend and her family.

Did I get screwed on this one? I'm going for a week so I have plenty of gaps to fill in. Probably will try to go around and see some show and such...any must stops for good food and such? Staying at the Bellagio, so at the very least I can watch water shoot up all day.

Well no **** you're not going to think it's that great if you live there. There are hundreds of places that I would love to visit but would never want to live in.

I know a few people that have lived in Vegas as well and hated it just like you. I could see where going to the casinos would be fun for a little while but would get old if that was all there was to do there.

Got home Sunday.

Wow. Vegas is awesome.
Highlight of trip was partying in Tao on Saturday night at Kim Kardashians bachelorette party. Unreal time. That was by far the best club I've ever seen, and when the Kardashians and friends showed up to party, the atmosphere got even crazier.

Basically did what we set out to do. Sight seeing all morning, came home to relax by the Flamingo pool all afternoon (which was an awesome place), went out for dinner, then went out. There's so much to do and see there, I missed out on 3 hotels (Mandalay Bay, Excalibur, Luxor) but hit up everywhere else. The food was awesome. The bars were amazing. It was pretty much non stop entertainment, like Disneyland but 21+.

Sidenote: There's apparently some TV show called 'two broke girls' coming out soon...I was in some focus group for it. It blows. Typical garbage sitcom.

Sidenote II: I think Julio Jones was at the club at Caesars Palace when I was there...May not have been him, but if it wasn't he has a clone.

Sidenote III: If you're going, bring a nice suit. It's an essential component to the experience.

Psssh I barely gambled there. Would play some penny slots for free drinks, played Hold Em once for 2-3 hours, and blackjack once. That was it. There's a lot to do without gambling.

I will play a little bit of poker but I don't go to Vegas with the intentions of winning a lot of money because I have to win quite a bit to be able to pay off the airfare, hotel, and the expensive food. If you go just planning on seeing a couple of shows and going to a couple of clubs then you will have a good time no matter what.
