You don't have to gamble to have fun in Las Vegas

91%
Found this guide helpful

Obviously, I am in the minority when it comes to visiting Las Vegas-I don't gamble or drink. But, when I go alone with my husband when he is working in the area, I don't just want to sit by the pool and read books or stay in a hotel and watch TV. I want to have fun! That's why I compiled this information for you.

    Do not miss this! Remarkable bit of history, building and architecture. If you are lucky enough to go on a helicopter ride over the Dam, it will make it an even better experience for you.

    Enjoy being in Venice without being in a airplane and getting jet lag. Listen to opera, see statues come alive or just people watch, but most of all - eat good food while doing it.

    See how candy is made and also see a cactus collection that is quite impressive. Then, eat some candy. What's not to like about eating chocolate? ;-)
