Great Sunday activities in Las Vegas?
February 3, 2014 1:37 PM   Subscribe

What are some great Sunday daytime activities in Las Vegas for a group of 13 ladies in town for a bachelorette party?

A group of 13 ladies is headed to Vegas in a few weekends. I'm working on plans for the Sunday activities and am looking for good options of things to do during the day. Saturday will be a day at the spa followed by dinner and drinks/a club in the Cosmopolitan. Just about the only thing I have figured out so far for Sunday is that we'll be having brunch at the Wynn and dinner around 8:30 p.m.

Other details that may be helpful:
The group has a range of budgets, so I'm hoping to line up something that doesn't cost more than $100 each during the day on Sunday. We are all in our late 20s/early 30s. We are staying at the Palazzo as a point of reference, but are willing to venture from that area.

Here are some things that so far seem like they'd be decent options. What are some thoughts on these and what am I missing?

-Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay
-Indoor Skydiving (http://www.vegasindoorskydiving.com/)
-Scale Mount Wynn
-Get out of town and hike in Red Rock Canyon (there might be some objections by folks due to Saturday night drinking)
-New York New York Roller Coaster
-A museum?

Thanks so much for your help!

- SkyZone (giant indoor trampoline park. It. Is. AWESOME!)

- Shoot something absurd (like an AK-47) at The Gun Store (or just write "THE SINGLE LIFE" really big on a target, then blow it away).

- I did something of my own invention that I called the Tour De Strip one day... I walked from one end to the other THROUGH every single casino, stopping to eat/drink/experience something in each one (weird Vosges Haut chocolates at Caesar's, a funky cocktail at a Wynn property, etc). Awesome fun, but be sure to wear sunscreen!

- Select a random page from "Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas", then perform an homage to it (I tried to get my companion to let me toss a grapefruit into the bath with her, but she said no).

- Giggly drunken fun riding the Strip's monorail (did you know you can drink on the monorail? YOU CAN!)

If any of you like caviar and you're willing to reconsider your brunch destination, I urge you to try the Bally's Sterling Sunday Brunch instead.

The mob museum is fun. And I think the boneyard may be doing tours, but not sure about Sunday. Red Rock tends to get pretty crowded, so go early if you do. There's also hikes to places like Black Mountain and Frenchman Mountain that make for some really nice view of the city.

They may or may not be open on your particular Sunday, but there is an educational zoo called Roos-n-more Zoo about an hour away by car.. I only mention because YOU CAN HAVE OTTERS PICK-POCKET YOU. I think it is $20~$30 a person, and you get to interact with everything from a Fennec Fox named Jellybean, to Otters, to Kangaroos, etc.
