THE STRIP, Las Vegas
Just walking up and down the strip at night is a fantastic experience, if you're too young to gamble or your broke then this is a great way to spend some time. I would recommend seeing the water feature at the Belagio Hotel. There are a few shops and other stores to visit such as the Coke factory etc, well worth a look if your trying to kill time.
You may want to think twice when someone suggests a night of "doing shots and riding the roller coaster." Especially when you end up in a limo that takes you to every crazy thrill ride along the Strip!
Just walk up and down the strip. Enter some casinos (must be 21 to stop at a slot machine, otherwise you have to keep on walking so that you can not gamble) and play. Often you get free or cheap drinks at the roulette tables.
Unless you go to bed early you are not going to miss it.. its everywhere.. just walk out of your room and head downstairs. I'm mentioning no place in particular.. just wander.
The lights at night are brighter than any in Kansas for certain. We got to Las Vegas late in the evening. We went to stretch our legs after checking in. Even at 1:00 am in the morning the streets were packed with people. There is plenty to do there. We paid to see two shows and also saw some of the free shows that many of the hotels have.
People watching is a great activity in Las Vegas. Do you know how to tell who the tourists are? They are the ones who stop and point at the big hotels... just like my wife and I did.
During the day, The Strip is merely a busy street with lots of highrises. But at night it comes to life! When the sun goes down and the lights go on, you'll see Las Vegas as it's famous for: lots and lots of flickering lightshows. Several of the big hotels have street-side shows that you can watch, such as the dancing fountains at the Bellagio.
Of course, if you feel so inclined, you can enter any of the hotels to try your luck at the tables or one of the thousands of slot machines.
Dress Code: No dress code since it's right there out in the street. It will be packed though, especially on the weekends. And don't be surprised that the air is still stiffling hot at midnight.
YOU HAVE ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT TO HAVE FUN !Night Clubs$$$$Baby's-Hard Rock Hotel,RA-Luxor Hotel,Rumjungle-Mandalay Bay Hotel,Studio 54-MGM GRAND HOTEL,Club Rio-Rio Hotel, C2K-The Venetian Hotel,SHOWS on a Budget-Lamar Harris-Westward Ho Hotel,Bottoms Up-Flamingo Hotel,Viva Las Vegas-Stratosphere Hotel.
You can honestly find just about anything to do just about any time of the day or night. Of course the casinos stay open 24 hours and the bars never close either! As a matter of fact, you can walk right down The Strip drink in hand!
My personal favorite is Studio 54 at the MGM Grand Hotel. Another must-see is the magnificent 'Cirque de Soleil' show at the Bellagio Hotel. It's out of this world! Tickets are priced at US$100, tax included. It sounds expensive but believe me, it's worth every penny. Promise. (I managed to catch Cirque de Soleil's Saltimbanco show recently in Singapore and this group still don't disappoint!). Don't miss it.
If you love live music, may I recommend: The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel and the House of Blues. Very hip places to chill out.

More casinos by night------although we didn't spend much time in Bally's, we did enjoy watching the sign change colors.
