    I like to take a day trip into Laughlin, and just walk around.

    If you play golf, there are some really nice courses out in Paradise, and the outer suburbs.

    Weather should be PERFECT.

    The buffet at the Rio is top notch. :buffet:

    Other than that, the Rio is way out in the middle of nowhere, unless you're just there to gamble at the Rio and not leave the hotel, I guess it's ok. Here's a pic I took when I was out there in May. Anything across the highway is too much of a pain in the ass in my opinion. :)

    God I miss Vegas and hanging in the sports book during football season. Get a day pass for the shuttle/monorail if you are going hotel hopping. Dinner Buffet at the Beligio was tits and Breakfast at the paris was bangin.

    The guacomole is wasabi by the way.

    Yeah I realize it's a little off the strip but only a few blocks and we will have rental car for when we need to get around. I'm sure I'll get a chance to checkout the buffet :buffet: thanks!

    You can rent a little runabout for about a hundred bucks. I've never done it personally, but a few of my friends have.

    Granted...that was Mid-July, so it was hot enough to go swimming too.

    Ok....skip the lake.

    If you're into old school video games, check out Videolounge Gamebar in old Vegas. Cheap drinks, tons and tons of old school arcade games, and just a fun time.

    Also, if you're going out drinking, I do suggest anywhere in downtown Vegas, not the strip. Things are way cheaper down there.
