Hello All,

I will be in Vegas from Wednesday through Saturday of this week, I need some ideas about inexpensive things to do. This is my first visit to vegas and I am not big on gambling, so what else can I do that won't break the bank.


All ideas will be appreciated......

If you like to hike and nature I would recommend:

Red Rock
Mt. Charleston
Lake Mead/Hoover Dam
Bellagio Fountain Show (free) Inside Flower display (free), and they also have an art gallery.
Forum Shops. (They have a lot of neat displays and art work through out the mall.

It's fun to just walk along the strip/casinos during the day. During the day there is not as much traffic and people.

Also you might want to check out and see if there are any bands in town while you are here. We have a lot of bands coming through here.

Mountain Bike(Cimm&Charleston intersection) and the Bootleg Cyn Zip Lines

If I do go next month we are going to try to do both of those things.
One more thing that might be simi-wasteful though is to get one of those choppers that flies over the Valley at sunset.The pictures you will take will amaze everyone.
