Well, without knowing you and your tastes it's pretty hard so here are some general recommendations from a Vegas pro.
I'm 31, I party, I enjoy the whole spectrum. From high class to slums. If it's your first time here's some tips:
1) Be ready to walk your ass off. When you exit your hotel, something will look close. it's actually 30 minutes of walking away. lol Walk the strip, go in each hotel. Explore ALL the hotels and what they have to offer for future visits.
2) The classic experiences, Freemont St, Bellagio Fountain, Caesars Palace Mall. PH mall.
3) My favorite hotels would have to be Aria & The Wynn. The Wynn has a great buffet.
4) NYNY is cool with the roller coaster, etc, MGM has lions in a tank on the gaming floor, Street performers are always fun, don't be afraid to take a cab once in a while. Be sure to visit the Hard Rock, Palms & Rio off the strip.
5) Keep your eyes open for celebs. In all my trips, I usually see at least 2-4 famous people per trip. From Mike Tyson at the airport to Hugh Heffner at the Palms to JayZ at the Bellagio.
6) Over by the Palms (one block or so west) there's a badass indoor Go Kart track. Worth every penny. Good for an afternoon. Call ahead to make sure it's not reserved for a party.
7)If you're sick of Vegas, spend a few bucks to rent a car, Go to Red Rocks then check out the Hoover Dam.

Becareful though. A taxi from Planet Hollywood to the Sahara Ave location was $50. lol Then we had to get back. lol
9) Don't be cheap. Wild the fuck out. Learn craps, if you don't know how to play a game, ask the dealer or pit boss when they're having an AM class. They ALWAYS have AM classes to teach newbs and they're always willing to teach you on the fly.

Almost forgot, you kinda have to see either a good comic or Cirque Du Soleil while there.

don't go near the monorail..not for touristas.
$5 craps at Harrahs sometimes.
I stay there as it is right on the street..so getting around is pretty easy. Free rooms too mostly ( lots of time spent @5 crap table and machinegunstore)
Skip pornstars..you will not get to see them and it's in a really seedly part of vegas. Of course if you got some gold to sell..by all means,
I never miss the carnagie deli with it's 18 inch think cornedbeef sandwich ( for two)
Drink lots of water when you are there...it's easy to overdo it in the desert (sm)

Go to Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. AMAZING what they accomplished back in the 30's. The new bypass bridge is awesome to see too.

I really think Vegas, is like another world. However there is always something to do! All of the ideas & suggestions so far are really good and you should try as much as you & your pocketbook can stand. Ha Ha My plug is for having the most wonderful dining experience at the best price possible. This may sound crazy but the best Steak House is Vegas is not in the big hotel or casino .... but it is in an old venue. It is called the "Steak House", and it is located in the Circus Circus hotel/casino. No shit ... I have eaten at Lowery, Wynn, all major places ... and never get as good steak or prime rib, as what the steak house has to offer. Even the location will surprise you. It may b in a low-rent district hotel. However, all that goes away once you walk in. It is top of the line service and fine dining you would seek out & want. You have to trust me on this ! Look it up ... it wins the "Best Steak House" in Vegas award each & every year. No shit. If you go and do not have a great meal & time. I will personally send you a bottle of wine. Have fun

What fun to read this thread - seems like a "Vegas" thread pops up every year or so...
To the OP - just like test & tune, please post up your results. I've got about 15 mos. before I hit the jewel of the American desert when my son makes 21. Guy trip - can't wait!
It's been soooo long since I've been, so I'll just say "Have fun and good luck!"
