    There's always the collection at the Imperial Palace casino. I think that's still there. Been a long time since I was there but it's a nice collection of cars right on the strip.

    I thought you wanted to talk about those crappy 70's cars that were only good for their steering boxes.

    Funny you posted this as my wife and I just got back from vegas.
    There's plenty to see like Counts customs, socal speed shop, ricks restoration and vegas rat rods (if you're into that sort of thing ).
    Also pawn stars is there.
    If you can go check out hoover damn, or take a long road trip to the Grand Canyon. You won't be disappointed.

  10. We were at the SEMA show a few years ago, the Imperial Palace was a good place to see.
    There was a couple of old Customs on display at that time.

    Determine where Red Rock and Mt . Charleston . Beautiful , to kick back and enjoy a meal at either of these . I rode my Harley , to Mt. Charleston , rained in buckets at the top of the peak , by the time I reached the floor again I was so dry I couldn't spit . 107 in Vegas , 74 at the top of the peak . Many places and sites to see outside of gambling .

  14. 3 people have mentioned it but, I'll be the 4th, Hoover Dam is a marvel of engineering and not to be missed if you can help it.

    Definitely Hoover Dam. Been there 3 times. Once before 9/11 where the tour group was allowed to go into the penstock area. I don't know if that's open anymore; it was closed for a while.
    If you drive, not a problem parking if you get there early.
    Bus rides available & convenient if not driving. Pickup at hotel. Plan ahead.

    Another time before the bridge on Hwy 93 was started.
    There was a mural painting inside one of the observation rooms looking to the south where it would ultimately be built that I coulda swore was an actual photograph....great artist whoever it was.

    3rd time was with old Army buds I hadn't seen in over 30 yrs

    As others have said, The Linq ( Imperial Palace ) is worth the time.
    Towards the north end of The Strip is The Holy Cow casino . Great food.
    The Stratosphere is at the north end, too. Good restaurant with a rotating view of Vegas
    Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas; at night of course.
    If you've got the time, take in a show or 2. Reserve seats as far ahead of time as possible!
    If you go expecting to get in without tickets, you'll be in alright....in a line waiting for somebody else to cancel their reservations or a "no show"
    Cirque du Soleil is always good.
    Plenty of magician shows too. I got hauled up on stage one time to "assist" a magician in his act. Fun time.

    Forgot to mention in my earlier post Fremont St. as mentioned above but on the lower end of Fremont is container park, Its a quirky little shopping/restaurant area built out of shipping containers.
