Default OT--Need Las Vegas Advice

Goin to Vegas next week for a wedding...

I've been there a dozen times on business over the years, but this time is for pleasure, so I'm renting a Ferrari 348t for a day to go for a drive...can someone tell me where's a good destination?

Thx

Go ride the Coaster in Prime NV at the border of CA and NV, and keep that throttle to the bulkhead, on that 348.

Sean...don't know what you're looking for as far as a destination goes, but the highway after the Hoover Dam is wonderful, smooth with gentle curves, hills, and nice scenery. 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

Sean...yeah you guys will see me this year, until you hammer those throttles, then it will be just another nice summer cruise for Diane and I We should be ready to head out to your area mid-May if you guys are going to run around. Maybe I'll even see you before that if our buddy gets his new toy, I told him to call me and I'll drive up to check it out.

I've been out to the Hoover Dam, Vegas, & Kingman area about a billion times, if you need some hints or have some questions, drop me your ph# and I'll clue you in, you gotta do that hardhat tour in the dam. Don't expect any speed out to the dam, it's after the dam when it gets interesting...Steve

NO BULL Sh#T go to "The Virgin River Gorge" it's the most expensive stretch of road in America and BAD ASS. It's 2 hours north and through a crack in a mountain, if you do it in the after noon and come back into Vegas at night the view is awesome. NO BULL Sh#t money back guarantee.
