My wife and I went there a few years ago. Neither of us are into gambling. We did go see Hoover dam and that was fun. Just walk around and see the different hotels. The architecture is amazing. Eat breakfast at the Paris hotel - it is awesome. Check out the Cirque show Mystere at Treasure Island. There is so much to do there besides gamble. Even just walking around the malls was fun. So much to see.

i went there for christmas a few years ago and i didnt do to much gambling either, (couldnt really afford it being that i was a college student at the time) We walked every where. You can spend a week or more there just walking around and you wont see every thing. The MGM grand has some tigers in side the casino. Alot of the casinos have reef tanks but i was not into them at the time so i dont really remember which ones had them. If your into sports at all going to the sports books is really cool esspecally on a sunday when all the football games are on. You can watch pretty much every game at once. and if you place a $20 bet on at least one game they will give you all the free beer and mixed drinks you want while you watch the game you bet on.

If you like to drink this is the place for you. you can even drink on the streets legally. No where else execpt maybe new orleans can you do that. I'll warn you now that your not going to get much sleep unless you really try. I was there for like 6 days and i think i slept about 20 hours the whole time maybe less.

Talk to all the front desks and sign up for their loyalty cards and you can ussually get to see some shows for free. I say three shows for free that way.

If you like to watch poker on tv go to the Belogio poker room a lot of the big names will be there playing.

well thats enough out of me for now if you have any other questions just ask.

Oh and vagas is not for people on a deit. I think i gained like 10 lbs when i went. The food is amazing and cheap.

Stay away from the Glitter Gaulch. No matter how many dollars you put into the G String it never pays out :shock:

All the shows in Vages are top notch. You chould go and see them and not be disapointed.

We go there few times every year, have family that live near the strip. Lots to do w/o having to gamble.

Hoover Dam is cool site. some of the casinos have amazing gaming. One of them i recall had a laser tag on one complete floor. Not little Chucky Cheese games, im talkin full out virtual reality gaming 8)

the MGM has huge huge rollar coaster, and on top of the stratosphere hotel, there is two rides at the tip top, a giant drop, and a coaster that goes around the outside of it. Imagine that high and on a giant drop!

There are lots of great coasters. The one at Circus Circus is fast the one at (Gosh, I think NY NY??? is good too part inside and part outside) there is a lot to do with out gambling, don't worry, you'll have fun. You could ask the question at Yahoo.com's question and answer area to poll people what is their fav. thing to do in Vegas gambling aside.

Check out the Shark Reef at Mandilan Bay, also a nice Imax in the Luxor.
