My twin brother lives in Henderson, how long are you staying? I second the Hoover dam. Also, are you going solo? If you are then maybe some of those "clubs" would be fun to check out Have fun and take lots of pictures

After that, it flattens out and goes straight, and I mean straight, as far as you can see, to Kingman where there's Route 66 and some cool stops and dining there. You could really let it rip on that those stretches of highway. Have fun
EXACTLY what I was thinking. In that thing you could even easily make it to the Grand Canyon and watch the sun set and then head back to gamble all night. I did it a couple time

Put your best foot forward!

We'll be there for 4 days...Greg is going too, so he's renting a vette and I opted for the ferarri

Another friend of ours from Coastal Pipeline in Calverton(he owns the white Bullet that came on the run 2 years ago) will be there for his bachelor party, so mebee we'll have to check out those clubs Stinson mentioned

If you like things mechanical,stop at the dam and take the "hardhat" tour. You will see the dam from the inside out. I rented a Viper for a few days there and we did the drive to the dam early,took the tour and then headed east for a drive. That was fun . Have to watch out those nasty police though!

The Dam Dam will most likely be busy due to security checks.
A great ride is along the lake up to overton. tight corners, long straight aways. this will take a few hours. You can come back on the 15 south bound from overton or visa versa. P/m me and I should be able to give you a tour on a Saturday of the fountains at Bellagio(water show). We don't do public tours but I can fit you in Saturday morning before 1pm. Let me know a few days in advance if you are interested.

A few of my customers were just out there and took the Dam tour. They said it was very busy due to security. No trucks allowed over the dam anymore, no bags, purses etc allowed into the dam tour. Pretty tight security they said.
