    So what is there to do in Las Vegas? I here it might be a fun place to visit. Me and the missus are leaving Sunday for a week in sin city, this will be the first time me and her have had a vacation together is 15 years sans children! Not sure what were going to do with ourselves...

    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."

    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.
