So my girlfriend will be attending UNLV in Las Vegas so we’ve driven down here (from way up north in Moscow, Idaho) so the people that want her to attend the university can show her around, etc. We will also be looking for apartments while we are here.

Now, I came along for the apartments part of it. That means I have 2.5 days of sitting in a hotel room either working or spending part of that time exploring Vegas.

So, I thought I would try to spice up the forums a bit and either take requests of places to go see (I would take some pictures/video and post them) or suggestions on what in the heck I should do. I’ve never been here before so I’m very curious and would love any suggestions! :D

Oh, I also brought a laptop and my wireless broadband card with a web cam. So at some point today or tonight I might go for a stroll down the strip or something and broadcast a live stream. :) If I do, I’ll let you all know in advance.

If you have the money, go out to dinner at the Bellagio Hotel. It’s the nicest buffet in town.

lol, whenever people ask where I’m from I always have to make sure I say Idaho. Otherwise the first thing people ask is if I’m from Russia even though I sound 100% American. :)

While your there check out the new Treasure Island hotel, I have heard they revamped it since I was there and it’s supposedly a lot of fun.

Also, I can’t remember the name of the hotel but one of them has the famous rollercoaster that comes out of it, you have to give it a ride if you like rollercoasters!

And lastly, if you really want to geek out, you could go to one of the medieval dinners (I think its in Excalibur) where you are served like in the dark ages and watch the knights joust one another. Cheesey but a lot of fun :)

Have a great time Jarel :)

About $20-$25 per person. But, it’s really something you should just do.

Also, check out the rollercoaster at the New York building. It’s pretty fun…especially at night!
