Going to Vegas in late March, going to extend my trip by 2 nights while the rest head home.. what should I do that may be out of the typical vegas sphere (that I will be indulging in plenty while the group is together)? Golf? Some bullshit outside the city? Should I just continue the hookers and blow? Some type of show?

For context, I've only been to vegas twice and it's been the same shit, which I enjoy - but I figure with 2 days I might as well try something different, maybe.

Thanks in advance, swill.

Rent a car and

•Go to the Hoover Dam;
•Do some day trekking in Valley of Fire SP or others listed below;
•Go wander the South Rim of that big hole in the ground;

Then we have these recs, which seem fun:

Buy one of those neon t-shirts that say:

We were at the edge of the desert when the drugs finally took effect. I looked at my lawyer who was pouring beer on his chest to facilitate the tanning process. All of the sudden I started screaming BATS BATS all over there were bats.......

I’d probably go the Liberace Museum and the National atomic energy museum. I like odd museums everynow and then. When I was at niagra falls I went to the daredevil museum where they had a complete history of all the foolish stunts and actual barrels that people went over the falls in.

Some of this has already been mentioned
- Hoover Dam, it's fairly close and you can do the tour in 1/2 day, the new bridge is pretty cool to (the old bridge IS the dam)
- Red Rock Canyon, again fairly close
- some nice courses there, if you golf

longer excursions
- Grand Canyon, national park - just over a 4 hour drive
- Grand Canyon glass skywalk - just over 2 hour drive, Indian Reservation
- Zion National Park - about 2 1/2 hour drive, if you go I recommend leaving through Zion Mt Carmel Tunnel
- Bryce Canyon - just over 4 hour drive
you could drive to both Zion and Bryce, but it wouldn't leave you much time to see them

I echo the other suggestions.

I don’t know if you have done this or not , but one of the things I like doing in Vegas is just walking the strip and people watching. It’s so entertaining, you get exercise, and can grab a drink while doing it.

Also, you could collect all the hooker cards they hand out, and mail them to a friend.

If you’re going to do any gambling, old Vegas is easier to win. Payouts aren’t as high, but the tables and slots are looser.

I haven't booked my stay for the other 2 nights, maybe I'll look into that. Pretty sure I've been there and the minimum bets were also more my style. Also, fuck slots.
