The auto museum in Harrah's is pretty cool, they have a small section of vintage bikes as well.  Another cool site is the neon sign graveyard, it's on the other side of the freeway opposite the Strip.

I was just there in March for a hockey tournament. In my down time, I found Pinball Hall of Fame off of Tropicana (a mile or 2 from MGM). A place where a team of folks finds and restores old pinball machines (sometimes really old) and arcade games and you can play them. I thought it was pretty cool. I would have enjoyed it more if I wasn't hung over

I just went to the car museum at the Linq hotel, which used to be Imperial Palace. Interesting stuff, including some oddball zero mile cars. Most are for sale too. Good way to kill an hour. I was in and out quick enough that I didn't get charged for parking.

Oddball?

Atomic Testing Museum

Historic Punk Rock Venue
Double Down Saloon

"Known the world over as the Happiest Place On Earth, the Double Down Saloon has been bringing a much needed sophistication to Las Vegas since 1992. Interplanetary abstract. Urban decay. The anti-Vegas. Double Down is indeed a clubhouse for the lunatic fringe."

hmm...honestly, you will probably like everything OUTside of Vegas - grand canyon, red rock canyon, valley of fire, death valley...do some hiking and sight seeing for random stuff out in the desert

downtown vegas is also more chill

I pretty much only go there to gamble, drink, nightclubs, day clubs, and pickup girls...so if you're looking for other stuff, maybe also check groupon and travelzoo

Over two hours at the mob museum it was fascinating then the movie cars where I got to see the original Batcycle from the 60s Batman Tv series I loved as a kid, Who knew it was a Yamaha Xs 650 Haaa.

Actually the 60's Batcycle was a 2-stroke! :7: It was a Yamaha YDS3 Catalina.

The XS models didn't come out until the original series was already off the air so I'm not sure what that one is from
