Take your kids to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum for a fun interactive experience. Dine or enjoy cocktails at Tao — its restaurant, bar and nightclub offer one of the most visually dramatic settings in Las Vegas.

 2. Bellagio & "Fountains of Bellagio"
We always make time to see the "Fountains of Bellagio Water Show" — it's even more magnificent at night... and it's free! Stroll through Bellagio's indoor Botanical Gardens and Conservatory — it's gorgeous flowers, plants and trees change with the seasons (our favorite is the Holiday Season)... and it's free too! Art lovers will enjoy the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art and its rotating exhibitions.


 3. The Mirage - White Tigers, Dolphins and Volcano Show
Visit Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden, home to some of the world's rarest and most exotic animals, including White Tigers and Tiger Cubs. Admission includes entrance into the Dolphin Habitat — be a Dolphin Trainer for the day! Don't miss the Volcano Show — it's spectacular... and it's FREE! Mirage's tropical pools make you feel like you're in the Caribbean. Visit the Carnegie Deli — it's the perfect place to get your "New York Deli fix." The food is great and the portions are huge, so go with an appetite!

 4. Caesars Palace & Forum Shops
If you like to shop (and even if you don't), it's worth a trip to the Forum Shops — part of the mall's interior is a re-creation of ancient Rome. Enjoy the free Atlantis animatronics extravaganza show and the Festival Fountain sound, light and laser show — fun for kids and big kids too! "Make a Wish" as you toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain.


 5. Mandalay Bay
No need to go all the way to the Bahamas to find a beautiful white sandy beach — just head over to Mandalay Bay's Beach and Wave Pool — it's incredible! (Open to Mandalay Bay, TheHotel and Four Seasons guests only). Visit the Shark Reef and "Dive with the Sharks." Chill out at minus 5° Ice Bar & Lounge (everything inside is made of ice!). Enjoy cocktails at Red Square Vodka Bar. Check out the "Wine Angels" on the 4-story wine tower at Aureole.

For wonderful Las Vegas views after dark, visit Mix Lounge atop THEhotel at Mandalay Bay (rooftop restaurant open for dinner only). Enjoy a cocktail at dusk and watch Vegas light up at night.

 6. Paris Las Vegas
Ah... Paris in the Springtime! Want to see some of the best views of Las Vegas, especially at night? Get tickets to the Eiffel Tower Experience — the Observation Deck offer spectacular panoramic views. Paris Las Vegas is located right across from Bellagio, so if you time it right, you can also get a bird's eye view of Bellagio's Fountain Water Show — it's especially stunning at night. Dine al fresco at Mon Ami Gabi — it overlooks the Las Vegas Strip and it's fun for people-watching!


 7. Fun Las Vegas Restaurants
So many great Vegas Restaurants... so many choices! A few of our favorites include: Tao, Mesa Grill (Bobby Flay), Canaletto, Postrio and Spago (Wolfgang Puck), Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville, Olives (Todd English), Delmonico's Steakhouse (Emeril Lagasse), Kokomo's, BLT Burger, The Palm, PF Changs (on and off the Strip), Carnival World Buffet at Rio, RA Sushi, Carnegie Deli, Isla Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar, Mon Ami Gabi, and Okada (at Wynn)... stay tuned for updates.

Guys who enjoy gambling may want to check out "The Pleasure Pit" at Planet Hollywood — according to its Chairman, Robert Earl, "it's the best and naughtiest place to gamble in Las Vegas!"  Blackjack and Roulette is dealt by lingerie-clad ladies and Go-Go "pole" dancers — only in Vegas! Sounds like a FUN place for a Bachelor Party.

10. Wynn Las Vegas
Where else but at Wynn Las Vegas can Surreal doesn't even begin to describe the Lake of Dreams "evening" show — it shimmers over the lake with 4,000 color-changing lights and magnificent special effects. This fun show is open to the public and it's free! Picturesque canal-like pools and private cabanas at Wynn are incredible... sorry, Wynn or Encore guests only.


11. NY-NY (New York-New York)
If you like Roller-Coasters, you're gonna love this one! Speeds reach up to 67mph with steep climbs up to 203 feet and thrilling drops to 144 feet. We recommend you eat afterwards. Walk across the pedestrian bridge (between NY-NY and MGM) to MGM Grand Hotel & Casino — you get a great view of the Strip from here, so don't forget your camera.

16. Fremont Street Experience
and "The Tank" and Waterslide
at the Golden Nugget

Open 10am-5pm daily.


17. Mob Museums
What better place than Vegas for a Mob Museum... or two! "Las Vegas Mob Experience" (a rival mob museum tied to the daughter of the famed Chicago mob boss Sam Giacana) is located at the Tropicana Casino... and "The Las Vegas Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement" (opens February 2012) in the old downtown federal courthouse (the site of the 1950 mob hearings led by Senator Estes Kefauver of Tennessee).

The 51-story high wheel rises up between the Flamingo and Harrah's resorts, across from Caesars Palace. Taking up to 1,120 passengers at one time, the 28 spherical air-conditioned glass-enclosed cabins will hold up to 40 people each and take 30 minutes to make one revolution.
