It's been several years since we've been out there, but try to take in matinee shows at the smaller hotels. Better prices, and some really good performers.

Some others to consider:

Hoover Dam

My fiancee grew up in Vegas, so she always recommends getting out of town to people who ask what to do. Death Valley National Park easily tops her list of things to do when "visiting home."

Would love to go visit Devin, and beleive me I tried, I can hardly get my wife to look at my knives, let alone spend a day in the shop, so someone elses shop, on her 40th Bday trip? Well, lets leave it there. I'm still gonna work on her though :)

Give her some money and send her shopping. You'll have time to come to Panaca.

If I can give you any advice...DON'T give her money and tell her to shop in Vegas. You won't be ale to get back through customs with all the stuff..lol.

Have fun, you and your wife deserve it.

Buy her a spa package and tell them to keep her occupied as long as possible. I am sure this is a common request in Vegas. But usually the husband doesn't spend his free time forging knives I am guessing.

The first and only time I was in Vegas was 1982 - when the Hilton was the biggest hotel in town. God, I am old.... My then girlfriend and I were hitchhiking from San Fran to El Paso and then through Mexico at the time. Anyway, that certainly disqualifies me to say something about Vegas, but the Grand Canyon and Death Valley were great experiences I still remember fondly. Hoover dam was interesting also. So, getting out of town is definitely worth it.
