Default Vegas Must Do's

My wife, me, best friend, and his significant other will be heading to Vegas on Thursday Jan 11 and coming home Monday Jan 15. We will be staying at the Golden Nugget(love down town). My wife and I have been several times but its been 6 or 7 years. What are some must do's other than gambling? We will do plenty of that but looking for things to do during the day as far as sight seeing an things? We will have a rental car to move around easily. Thanks for any ideas and is anybody else gonna be there then?

Just got back today. The Mob museum is really cool and it's walking distance from the nugget. Between Denny's and Heartattack Grill is Axehole. Playing darts with throwing axes is a blast!!!! I actually ended up buying an axe, knife and a set of three throwing stars. On of the funniest things I did all week. For tours contact Big Horn Adventure Offfiters. They pic you up in Humvees and give a personal tour of what destination you chose!! We went to the Hoover ****. Awesome tour with lot of knowledge of local area and history. Fremont street is awesome at night

Stayed at the Nugget last week. Could have lived without their $30 per night resort fee. If you decline house keeping for 2 days you get $15 food and beverage comp. There will be card in your room you can text to sign up for that.

We saw X Burlesque at Flamingo if your into Vegas showgirl shows. Also say Mystere at TI. It’s an awesome production show.

Eat breakfast at Hash House A Go-Go and lunch at Nacho Daddy. Both close to GN. Post a review on Yelp at Nacho Daddy and get a free margarita.

If your wanting to be where the action is look at one of the host hotels. South Points is cool and they have the World Series of Roping going on during the day. For Vegas prices were reasonable. MGM has a lot of rodeo stuff going on. Downtown Old Vegas is cool as heck. If I were going to want to be around the action I would stay down there.

This for sure! We have stayed at the Nugget before, New York New York, Riviera, and Hilton to name a few. My favorite is down town! South point is nice and on the strip but way down by itself. We haven't been for 7 years so im sure alot has changed!

How much are tickets for the nfr? My buddy is really good friends with some of the big people in rodeo and is saying he can get me the hook up on some tickets but don't wanna put all my eggs in one basket.

Also a block off Freemont they have a rodeo viewing party free to public. It's inside a big tent. We didn't go because the Friends I was with wife is disabled and wore out early. But talking to others it's the best and affordable. If you want to get away from the crowds and noise stay at the Renaissance Marriot near the Convention Center. It's across the street from Cowboy Christmas and JR NFR and a monorail station is on site and make getting to strip fast and easy.

How much do you want to spend? You can get them in the nose bleed section for 50-60 and spend in the thousands for floor

If you've never been it's worth going because you se the opening ceremonies. As for watching the rodeo get the cheapest seats you can find. You will find yourself watching the big screen anyways unless you have premium seats.

Then try to get tickets lower mid level in the middle of the arena. Best area to view time and rough stock . The lower levels are typically season ticket holders, sponsors and contestant families. I use to get some of the contestant tickets but my friends have since retired lol. And I don't keep up with it much anymore. I prefer watching it on tv at one of the viewing parties

We just got back last week from opening night. The arena is small enough where every seat is a good seat. There are screens In The arena to watch as well. Upper level seats are reasonable and it's a fun event to attend.
