    I'm getting married in Mexico and then we are being slightly greedy and honeymooning in Las Vegas for 5 nights at the end of October.
    We've never been before and are really looking forward to it, we've booked to stay at Planet Hollywood - heard good and bad reviews, but I always try to make the most of our time away and gather we'll only be in the hotel to sleep!

    I've been trying to plan things to do, but everytime I get on the internet I get overwhelmed with everything that's going on and get more and more excited and have a list the size of my arm, which I don't really think we'll fit it all in, in the 5 nights we are there!

    Please has anyone got any tips or must see's and must do's whilst we're there, I want to fit in as much as possible, whilst also having some romantic time, after all this is our honeymoon!

      there are 100s of things to do in vegas. All i can say is pace yourselves. I spent over $1500 to see shows during the xmas timeframe last year. I got sick from the constant drinking and fine dining food and ended up calling the in house doctor which was $350 and didnt accept insurance cards. I was also unable to walk or even lay down thanks to being so sick. I regret that. Our first 3 days there were awesome though, so i suggest that you see all the shows and experience the first days and slow down on the last.

        My hubby and I spent a week in Vegas last year. You've got to see one of the Cirque du Soleil shows; we saw Mystere while we were there. The tickets are kind of expensive though. We went to a two-hour timeshare presentation to get discounted tickets.

        We purchased the Las Vegas Power Pass Las Vegas Attractions and Tours - Meal Tickets & Shopping Tickets - Things to do in Las Vegas because for one price, we got admission to a lot of the attractions we wanted to see. It was worth it for us.

        As for restaurant recommendations, I highly recommend Kokomo's at the Mirage Hotel. When we were there, they had a "$29.99 Tasting/Prixe Fixe Menu". The surf and turf was excellent. Very nice atmosphere. I have to warn you, the tab could come to over $100 total with drinks and tip. I think the alcoholic drinks cost $10 to $12 a piece, but they were good. A lot of the higher end restaurants have a Prixe Fixe menu that is usually served before 7pm; it allows you to eat at the finer dining resturants at a lower price. These restaurants usually require reservations.

        I'm not usually a buffet person, but I really liked the Cravings buffet at the Mirage hotel. They had a $19.95 per person Early Bird Special buffet from 3pm-5pm. Go hungry though, because they have a lot to choose from.

        For low cost entertainment, go see Freemont Street in downtown Las Vegas. They say Freemont Street is the real Vegas.

        Also be sure to see at least one of the fountain shows in the evening at the Bellagio hotel while you are there.

        Make sure you wear comfortable shoes when you walk the strip. It is a lot of walking (the buildings are not as close as they appear, believe me).

        Other suggestions... Gondola ride at the Venetian hotel, rides at the Stratosphere hotel, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. I put photos of our Vegas trip on shutterfly if you are interested, here is the link http://ourlasvegastr...shutterfly.com/. The password is KaylaSunny.

          definately pace yourself!! we had a blast in vegas last year. gambling was fun because we were together. we mainly did the slot machines lol.

          we stayed at the mgm and watched the lions for a bit. we also saw ka by cirque du soleil, wasn't really impressed but i've heard that mystere is really good. i do regret not going to a burlesque type show, it would've been a fun couples thing!

          we went to the hoover dam and grand canyon for a day...this was AMAZING but I wouldn't recommend going in one day because it's like a four hour drive and we didn't get to enjoy the canyon as much as we'd like. there is the sky bridge which is about an hour from vegas. it's supposed to be awesome to walk out onto the canyon on glass, but i remember it being really expensive for the experience and FI and I really wanted to see the biggest part of the canyon. might do the sky bridge when we go back.

          definately stop and enjoy the fountains at the bellagio and the gardens as well, beautiful flowers. also, make sure to have dinner at night at the top of the eiffel tower, it overlooks the fountains and light show, we missed it, but heard it's extremely romantic.

          also freemont street is really cool, make sure to stay for the light show at night it's worth it.

          good luck :)

            Your right there is way too much to see and do in Vegas. I've been twice and still haven't seen everything I wanted to. Make a list of the things you what to do break them up between day and night and try to do as much as possible everyday.

                I live in Vegas and there is a TON to do. Some of my favorites: Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris. They have a patio on the street accross from the Bellagio fountains. Make reservations, but the patio is first come first served. As for shows, I would recommend "O" at the Bellagio, Love at the Mirage or Le Reve at Wynn. If you are into the club scene XS at Encore, Surrender at Encore, Vanity at Hardrock, Tryst at Wynn or Tao at Venetian are all fun places. I know the helicopter tours to the Grand Canyon are very popular. As for the free things to do in Vegas: the conservatory at the Bellagio; it changes seasonally, the lion habitat at MGM (super cool if u get there around feeding time), Freemont Street, the neon sign tour on Freemont (a few of the old vegas hotel signs restored) and of course the Las Vegas sign which is south of Mandalay Bay.

                  I love Vegas and go for the shows and to people watch. All the suggestions on the previous posts are excellent ideas. I would highly recommend watching the fountains at the Bellagio at night/seeing the beautiful flower garden inside, Fremont street at night (check the light show schedule), and walking the strip in comfortable shoes. It can get chilly at night in October, so bring a jacket.

                  Here are some useful websites to save money:

                  Events in Las Vegas | Goldstar

                  There are a lot of great photo opportunities, so bring a good camera and enjoy your time.
