Even if I end up not going this year, I can provide help and possibly a 20% room discount at some hotels. Helping book vacations here is what I do for a living. Would not mind helping 70K family instead of normies for a change.

Caesars properties are having a 20% off sale but most hotels require first night room and tax to be paid.
If you are looking at an MGM property I can send you a link for 20% off to your email if you message it to me.
I usually suggest booking.com for rooms as most have free booking and free cancellation.
If you need help planning fun stuff or need an opinion let me know and I would be happy to help
I think a day of roller coasters at Adventuredome and hiking at Valley of Fire would be awesome group activities although I'm not opposed to strip clubs and gambling (also fun group activities).

Here are some things to do, either for group activities or just for planning in general:
Hiking at Valley of Fire:
Hiking at Red Rock:
http://www.blm.gov/nv/st/en/fo/lvfo/blm ... k_nca.html
I prefer the Valley of Fire myself.
Bootleg Canyon Zipline:
Worth the money!
Hoover Dam Tours
It’s kind of an outside thing. If you book a tour and it has a trip with the Ethel M Chocolate Factory included and there is an Express without, buy the Express. The Botanical Gardens aren’t worth the trip and they sell the chocolate at the airport.
If you rent a car or take a tour:
Zion National Park:
Two and ½ hour drive from Las Vegas. Completely worth it.
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/near-l ... th-valley/
A Little over two hour drive. Interesting.
A little over two hour drive to see the Skywalk.
A little over four hour drive to see the South Rim. If you’ve never been and this will be your only time to the Grand Canyon, this is where you want to go. This is what you are picturing in your head when you think “Grand Canyon”.
Attractions on/around the Strip:
Exactly what it sounds like.

Pretend to be a CSI agent through one of the three crime scenes. Upgrade to all three for an additional fee.
New York New York Roller Coaster:
http://www.newyorknewyork.com/attractio ... aster.aspx
Small but fun.
Large cats and dolphins.
Indoor theme-park (rollercoasters and laser tag). This would be an awesome group activity.
There is a package for three of the above attractions for $57. The Adventuredome is a day pass (normally priced at $30) and the NYNY Rollercoaster is also a day pass ($25). Bodies and Titanic are $32 each. Maximize $ buy booking all three. The Titanic Exhibit is my favorite. On average the package saves anywhere from $4-6 with any other combination.

Free! Worth a walk through if you’re nearby. There is also the World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain at the Bellagio too. Unfortunately the Art Gallery will be closed at the time before the cruise.
High Roller (Observation Wheel):
Currently the World’s Largest Observation or Ferris Wheel. List: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferris_wh ... ris_wheels
Stratosphere Tower & Rides:
Big Shot and the Insanity are my favorites. Best at nighttime.
Pole Position Raceway:
Go Karts. Haven’t done this. Heard it’s fun. Not very expensive.
Wax figurines. Eh.
Gondolas at The Venetian:
http://www.venetian.com/hotel/attractio ... rides.html
Haven’t done this.
One of my favorite attractions. Three story old Mob courthouse. The history of the Mob in the U.S., not just Las Vegas.
Where the signs go after the hotels close/implode. Best at night.
Pinball Hall of Fame:
Exactly what it sounds like. Fun.
Fall of Atlantis:
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on-the ... -fountain/
Talking fountains. If nearby worth watching, not worth taking a special trip.
Auto Collection at The Linq:
https://www.caesars.com/linq/things-to- ... bD-Y9JViAk
http://autocollections.com/index.cfm?ac ... e&tab=free
Have not done this but would absolutely go.
It’s free! Worth it if this interests you.
There are some more attractions listed on Vegas.com, if you would like my opinion or if you have any questions regarding the others let me know, I might have done that too.
There are several different places to go shooting all different types of guns and to be honest they are all pretty comparable in pricing (to stay competitive), friendliness and safety.
The Gun Store:
My personal favorite for all around experience.
Closest to the Strip. Also 5-11’s Official Las Vegas Store.
Machine Gun Vegas:
The Range 702:
Most of the ranges offer complimentary round trip transportation, if available.
A local shooting range if you don’t need any hands on assistance.
Fun group activities. Larry Flint’s Hustler Club, Sapphire & Treasures are high end clubs. Sapphire advertises themselves as the World’s Largest.
South Premium Outlet:
http://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/s ... .asp?id=61
North Premium Outlet:
http://www.premiumoutlets.com/outlets/s ... .asp?id=58
Fashion Show Mall (Regular Mall not Outlet):
Miracle Mile Shops (Regular Mall not Outlet):
Heavy metal, punk, rock, ect.
There are two in the city. Decent Selection.
More for classic rock.
There’s one more record store that just opened but I don’t know the name.
This should help
