Also, any of the Cirque De Soleil shows are worth seeing, especially O or Mystare.
I heard Ka was pretty awesome, too.
Just walking along from hotel to hotel exploring the different ones is a lot of fun; especially Belagio, Venetian, Paris, Caesars Palace, New York New York and Treasure Island. If it's your first time, don't forget to catch the free water show in the evenings out front of Belagio, the free show out front of Treasure Island (usually a pirate show) and the valcano in front of Mirage. Take a Gondola ride at the Venetian (not free...but, I think it would be romantic
). The Comedy Stop can be fun and it's affordable. Depends on who's playing there. Oh, and make sure to take the wife "WINDOW SHOPPING" at the mall inside the Venetian and inside Caesar's Palace. I say window shopping because it's all like shopping at Rodeo Drive...very expensive. Although, there are a few not so pricey places here and there.
The Hard Rock Hotel is off the strip but it's a lot of fun to check out. Lots of memorabilia (and I won $500 in slots there once
) Also, if she likes spa's...they have an AWESOME spa there! Oh yeah...I had a mani/pedi and a massage there once....yup...makes you feel just BEAUTIFUL!!
Most of the hotels there will have a "coupon book" that they will either just give you or you can ask for when you check in. Sometimes you can find some really good discounts and deals in there for the shows.
