    Favorite thing: the variety of amazing buildings along the Strip.
    the city by night, billions of twinkling lights.

    Fondest memory: it nice to have been there, but everything is so artificial and focused on gambling.... wouldn't say I miss that....

    Favorite thing: Go up the Stratosphere the 109th floor and the view from there is absolutely stunning. There is a ride on top there like a rollercoaster (not exactly) but i didnt have the courage to go on it...looked scary. but u should go there atleast to enjoy the view.

    Fondest memory: The Strip, just walk over there and move from casino to casino looking and taking pictures. The treasure Island show was just too good, they did it so well...takes place every 1 hr roughly.

    Favorite thing: Go on the roller coaster on top of the Stratosphere.
    Go for a drive (in a convertible, if possible) in the desert.
    Cruise The Strip at night in a car (again, try to have convertible).
    Eat at one of the massive buffets.

    Fondest memory: Getting married to my husband at the Candlelight Chapel on The Strip. It will be 5 years on 8/29/02.

    Favorite thing: Do the rides at the top of the Stratosphere! The World's highest roller coaster and the negative 'G' needle. Do the roller coaster first or it is anticlimatic. The photo is of me on top of the new Clark County Detention Center (County Jail) with the Stratosphere behind me. We are one of the subcontractors working on it and I paid a site visit.

    Fondest memory: Winning $1200.00 on a slot machine during my bachelor party!

    Favorite thing: Another great thing to do is do the ride atop the Stratosphere on the ride 'The Hot Shot'. It is one of those 'Rocket' type things that shoot you way up in the air in a split second, and then you fall down. But it all happens over a thousand feet in the air above the strip! Yeaaah!!!

    Here is a picture I found of it... it's not me, but it gives you an idea of how it feels!

    Favorite thing: Go to the Stratosphere tower and get on top to try the Big Shot. We tried it in the afternoon and it was an amazing view of the city from the top.
