Vegas for tough guys and girls: Andrew Dice Clay at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino

Vegas if you'd rather be on Broadway: "Million Dollar Quartet" at Harrah's Showroom

Vegas if you want to go full-out Vegas: "Frank Marino's Divas Las Vegas" at The Quad

Vegas for, well, anyone: Cirque du Soleil, 8 shows
•Cirque du Soleil is a must for Vegas visitors of all types and ages. There are eight shows on The Strip, including "The Beatles LOVE" (great for fans of the Fab Four) and "Zumanity" (great for couples out on a date night).
