    This list brought back so many memories. I have only been to Las Vegas twice and both were for work related events so time spent site seeing was very limited. I did get to see many of the things on your list and they were all pretty amazing. I don’t recall the Circus shows, but it has been years since I was last out there. I also don’t really care for circuses so I don’t think I would have enjoyed it anyway.

      Definitely brings back memories. This is one of the common questions I get asked all the time from friends going out. I lived there for 2 years and my son was born there. The Circus acts I know have been there for years, the first time I saw them was when I was 7. It’s not like a full on circus, it is just small acts like unicycle and air acrobatics and that which are held right in the center of the Midway.
