unknown Vegas for repeat visitors?

I have a good dilemma, and would love some more resources and ideas. We have been to Las Vegas so many times, and love it every time. I'm tagging along again on my husband's business trip end of March and its my birthday. We are lucky to have seen quite a bit, as far as shows and concerts go. This time, unfortunately there are no concerts I'd like to see. We've seen all the Cirque and magician shows we want to see, and high-end spas are out. We have a new-to-us restaurant for birthday dinner (Giada's), but are looking for ideas of other shows that we might not know or something/anything that might be fun. We've seen Absinthe, Opium, been to all the hotels, done Madame Tussauds, Old Town, etc. Opium was fun because it was newer and smaller. I would probably be happy with a couple nice dinners, watching the Bellagio fountain forever, and a couple hours at the pool, but love the shows and activities, so hoping to get some new ideas. I used to play poker, but I'm out of practice so I probably won't do that. Won't be spending large amounts of time in the casinos, and am not interested in shopping really either. Probably won't rent a car and sightsee by myself during the day. So, not complaining at all...just hoping you experts might know a few gems we've not experienced yet. Thank you!

For something different I love the afternoon tea at the Mandarin Oriental . . . now Waldorf Astoria. It is quite posh and if you book for about 30 mins before sunset you'll see north along the whole Strip as the lights come on. It is a serene room on the 23rd floor between registration and the cocktail lounge. It is like the highest end proper London afternoon tea crossed with some Asian accents and really superb service. I wouldn't do lunch on the same day unless it is very early because the tea serves a lot of food. Instead a late breakfast, the late afternoon tea, then maybe a late supper if you get peckish.

I saw the bodies exhibit when I was there and it is one of the most fascinating things I have ever seen. I would highly recommend it!

Are you looking for something to do by yourself during the day while your husband is at business meetings? Every couple of years my husband goes to a conference that's always in LV, and I go too, and look for interesting things to do during the day. I don't know if you're interested in outdoor activities, but probably my favorite thing I've done is the time I took a raft trip (on a motorized raft) on the Colorado River through Black Canyon to Willow Beach. It leaves from just below Hoover Dam, so you get a really unique view of the dam. The raft ride is about three hours on flat water through really lovely and interesting scenery. You stop for a picnic lunch on the shore (which the raft company provides). The company has a shuttle that picks you up at (or near) your hotel in the morning, and delivers you back to your hotel by mid to late afternoon. I really enjoyed it. Here's their web site: https://www.blackcanyonadventures.co...nyon-raft-tour
