    I have been conspiring with Hubbys best friend to likely go to Vegas for his B-Day next month. The friend has connections and can get us comped hotel rooms so the biggest cost would be flights.
    Any "must dos" while there? It has been many years since I have been and hubby has never been, neither of us are huge gamblers but I do like Blackjack.
    Also Hubby's oldest Bro lives there so we get to see him too.

    I can't believe Hubby turns 50 in March
    Parents have 50th Wedding Anniversary in July
    Sister turns 50 in November (yeah go ahead add that july-November thing up, I was 11 when I figured it out)..... LOL

    See i would take him to Key West. And while you're at it you could bring a few of those Key West chickens home.

    I went to Vegas for my 40th 3 years ago. Went with 4 of my girlfriends, we had a blast.

    There is ton's to do and see there... I would go to tripadvisor.com and see what people are posting as the must see's currently. There are a lot of things to do for free.
    My favs were the Treasure Island outdoor show, the waterfalls and of the rollercoasters.


    Have fun!!

    Well you have to make him the Old Fart's Gift Basket: Geritol, Centrum Silver, Just for Men, incontinence pads for men, plaid socks, fake gift certificate for a funeral, fake gift certificate for a walker, an ad for The Scooter Store, etc....

    Luxor is the best place to go in Vegas. Real touristy but safe. If you REALLY want to show him a WILD birthday then take him on a whirlwind tour of the "Gentlemens Clubs".[​IMG] He will say he doesn't want to go but if you TAKE him, he might allow you to DRAG him there.[​IMG] Now if you are an "OLD" couple:rolleyes:, there is always Wayne Newton, Hoover Dam or Circus Circus to visit. Be sure to stand under the LION FOUNTAIN outside at the MGM casino on a saturday night about 10.00 pm. Climb up to the LION and see sights you'll NEVER see again!

    When we went to Vegas 5 years ago we rented a limo for an hour and rode up and down the strip at dusk, it was awesome.

    We also took a bus tour and went to the Hoover Dam for the day. That was incredible.

    check out this website. www.cheapovegas.com

    Oh and we saw the Blue Man group. Awesome!

    Oooh, I'm jealous! My DH turns 50 next week. We're having friends over for dinner because he doesn't want to do anything big. Since I'll do all the work that's fine but going somewhere warmer than here sure sounds nice!
