Obviously you won't find a better place than Las Vegas Friday and Saturday nights...

But what is there to do during the week for entertainment?

Most of the things that are available to do on the weekend are also available to do during the week...

If you work in the gaming industry, there are industry nights...

The Strip is still active during the week, there's always downtown as well!

Town Square is nice during the week, although it is hot out now...

Shows still go on during the week, restaurants are also still open, I'd say its the same sans some of the same crowds and a few activities...

Everyday is a weekend day in Las Vegas. As a visitor you'd probably be hard pressed to tell the difference, although people from LA tend to take three day weekends and head for Vegas, so it is busier. Also, a few shows sometimes take a weekday off, and some retail stores close earlier on Sunday night, but it's certainly not as if Las Vegas shuts down for anything. With a million visitors a month, almost 4,000 trade shows and conventions a year, and 2 million permanent residents, it never stops.

Ya you guys are right everything is open. It's kind of empty though. Just got back from shopping at town square and it was empty. Things don't really fill up with people except for the people just walking down the strip taking in the sites.

I guess that kind of bums me out.

Most people who live here work during the week, and just want to go home and take it easy after work.

I don't imagine that the situation is very different anywhere else in the country.

Yes I'm sure it's around the same.

Does anyone know a gym I could join?

One with lots of friendly young people that are less than 25?

I can only speak for the gym I attend- UNLV Student Recreation and Wellness Center (SRWC).
Very new, very clean, many exercise options (swimming pool, basketball courts, dance studios, cycling room, ...), a healthy cafe, ...
Mostly undergrads, but grad students and faculty frequent it as well, especially early morning. You don't have to be a UNLV student/alumni/faculty to join.
You can find more info through their website (via UNLV's website).
