Catching a show with your friends is a great way to make memories. Las Vegas is home to several musicals, comedy, burlesque, and circus shows that are utterly thrilling. After finishing a show, try your luck at one of the many slot machines at a casino. If that isn’t your style, head over to the blackjack table for some high-stakes betting. It is truly fun to compare your odds with your friends during rounds of poker.
