I'll be staying at Treasure Island, Las Vegas for 6 nights and I don't gamble. So please help me and tell me what should i be doing in the morning and the afternoon. My nights are full with watching shows (Cirque Du Soleil and stuff).

I'm planning to spend a day on a Grand Canyon tour, another day riding all sorts of roller coasters at Circus Circus & Stratosphere, two days of shopping and sight seeing, so I left another 2 more days of not knowing what to do. Any ideas?

I'm going in late November. Thanx!

Here is an itinerary that my girlfriend made of all the places to visit in Las Vegas for families, non-gamblers or people under the age of 21: -snip-. There should be enough stuff on this list to fill up your last couple of days. If you care to know my opinion, the Magic Show at Greek Isles Hotel Casino is more entertaining than the Cirque stuff.

Honestly, 6 nights in Vegas is a lot... you might want to chill at the Grand Canyon for a night or two.

KID,
Thanks for putting your list for the under 21 crowd on the TP forum. However, there are a few glaring errors. The gondola rides at the Venetian Hotel are certainly not free. $12.50 outdoor, $15.00 for indoor rides. The Dolphin Habitat at The Mirage is $15 to enter, not free. The Stratosphere has free shops at the bottom, however if you want to go to the top for great views of the city, it will cost you $10. The LV Hilton has the Star Trek Experience and it costs $34 for both rides. Red Rock State Park is a nice change of pace for hikers, bikers & climbers, but they do charge $5 if you drive in. If you leave your car in the parking lot and walk/bike in, then yes, it is free to visit.

One thing you should add is the free aquarium show at the Silverton Hotel. They have over 4,000 tropical fish in their aquarium and the feed the fish 3 times/day.

Zanif,
6 nights in Vegas are more than most visitors allow for their holiday. But, there is enough to keep you busy even w/o gambling. Hoover Dam is worth visiting, Death Valley is close enough for a day trip, the Valley of Fire is interesting if you like desert scenery and Mount Charleston is a nice cool option if you want to hike and enjoy a pine forest. Send me a PM if you have questions.

I can also recommend shopping - there are a few great outlet malls and the Fashion Show Mall is huge! We didnt really gamble - but you could spend a day walking up and down the strip checking out the hotels! Head into MGM grand and watch the tigers for a while!! Check out the buffets too l can recommend Cravings Sunday Brunch in Mirage - champange brunch and you could eat there all afternoon!!

He who goes to Vegas, should know a common Vegas saying: "You have to see at least one show while in Vegas, that's the law." Vegas shows are as big and as spectacualr as entertainment gets. Start at -snip- Godspeed.
