Below are our trips that we did whilst we were in Las Vegas - I class all of these as a must see/do whilst you are in Las Vegas

The High Roller Las Vegas Shining bright on the Las Vegas Strip, the 550-foot-tall High Roller is a true standout at The LINQ's outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment promenade. Measuring 520 feet in diameter, the High Roller eclipses both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer. Facing north and south (parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard), the wheel takes 30 minutes to complete one full revolution and features 28 glass-enclosed cabins with broad views of the famed resort city. Each spherical cabin can hold up to 40 people. There are benches on either side of the cabin, with plenty of floor space in between.

Papillon’s ‘Strip Highlights’ Helicopter Tour A valid government issued photo ID (driver's license or passport) is required at time of check in. This helicopter ride includes a narrated air tour of the world famous Las Vegas Strip and the experience of a lifetime. Views of the Las Vegas Strip could include an explosion of a volcano at the Mirage, marvel at the fountains of Bellagio, fly past the Clock Tower of St. Mark's Square at the Venetian, see the replica of the famous Eiffel Tower and come closer to the Stratosphere than ever before. Tours can include transfers to and from the hotel.

The Mob Museum, officially the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, is a history museum located in Downtown Las Vegas.

Dinner at Andreas’s and Entrance to Surrender Andrea's at Encore is a Forbes Travel Guide Four Star award-winning restaurant that combines Chef Joseph Elevado's menu of Asian-inspired cuisine with a sexy and social atmosphere. Discover for yourself why Andrea's was voted one of the country’s hottest dining spots in the OpenTable Diners’ Choice Awards. Overlooking the pool of Encore Beach Club, delicious beats will set the mood as you dine on specialties like the Wagyu beef and lobster roll, New York strip steak with wasabi demi glacé, or five-spice garlic lobster.

Also, I believe "an afternoon in Venice" and "a morning in Paris" would be fantastic for your stay
