I'm going to Vegas in 2 weeks and was wondering what I should do. I should mention that I'm going with 10 other guys for a bachelor party, but I don't want to spend the whole weekend in a casino gambling...and neither does my wallet. I've saved $300+ for 3.5 days and I'd like to do some fun stuff. Any suggestions are appreciated and I'll be sure to post pics when I get back.

Vegas isn't necessarily about gambling. Especially when you're there for a bachelor party. There are myriad strip clubs and nightclubs, though those will cost you as much as the gaming tables, especially with the silly drink tax they have there.

I've done several bachelor parties there - beyond the nightlife and scantily clad babes, I've always found one of the most fun things to do is grab a cooler full of beers (cans, no glass) and camp out at the hotel pool for hours on end. You wind up meeting lots of new people, getting into the jacuzzi w/ said people, and then figuring out what to do for the night from there.

If you and your buddies are outdoorsy types, you can all get together and have a hangover-clearing hike through Red Rock Canyon or Mt. Charleston before going back out to wail on your livers again.

Check out the roller coaster on top of the Stratosphere tower. In fact, just check out the Stratosphere period lol

And many of the hotels put out shows throughout the night so you can look into it as well

ps: Don't miss the pirate show at the Treasure Island hotel

Rent a Wrangler, take the top off and go 4-wheeling near Hoover Dam. Its a blast, just watch out for Bureau of Land Management officials!

BTW, $300 in Vegas can go faster than a blink of an eye. I budgeted $1000 over 5 days including 2-day Jeep rental, casino, and sight-seeing. I would have liked to have had more. (this included improvised on the spot hotel fees -$25 a night- since staying with a former friend fell through once i got there.)

If you do the typical bachelor party stuff, you had better bring more!!
