How to give my parents a surprise trip to Las Vegas?

Me and my brother have booked my parents for a trip to vegas. They have no idea its a huge surprise. We have no idea how to give it to them. We want to do something really cool to give it to them but we don't know what to do. We are giving it to them about 5 days before they leave. Please help us! We want to make this surprise huge and awesome.

Answer: 
I think just writing it in a card....or send them out, cook them a brunch or dinner, get decorations from a store like Party City & decorate their home with Vegas/Casino-themed decorations. It'll be a mini-surprise party and you can announce it then- "Surprise, you're going to Vegas!"

How to see everything in the Vegas strip in 5 days?

I am going to Vegas for christmas but planning on staying on the strip the whole time. I have never been to vegas so I want to see the most of it while I am there. Does anyone have any suggestions on itineraries for each day? I will be staying at the Venetian if that helps. Thanks.

Answer: 
Five days is plenty of time. Venetian is a great hotel, and in a busy area. You can easily take in the nearby attractions when you have a little spare time here and there. You might want to take a few days to venture down to south part of the strip and a day to head north of Venetian. I would head all the way down to Mandalay Bay (you can take the monorail to MGM, then cross to Excalibur and use the free tram to Mandalay, or you can do the bus or a taxi). Then walk back north on the strip, taking in what you want to see. You may not make it all the way back in one day, depending on what you plan to stop and see. You can take the monorail, a bus, or a taxi back to Venetian and then go back to where you left off. I think 2 days for south of Venetian, and 1 day for north should be plenty of time, but again - it depends. Here are the major resorts you'll encounter along the way, with things to see: Mandalay - Shark Reef Luxor - Bodies and Titanic exhibits, it's just a cool place to see Excalibur - not much to take in, family-oriented, Tournament of Kings dinner show Tropicana - Las Vegas Mob Experience NYNY - arcade and coaster, the casino floor is really neat - great atmosphere MGM - lion exhibit (free) Monte Carlo - great brewery inside Planet Hollywood - Miracle Mile Shops City Center - newest on the strip Paris - Eiffel Tower Bellagio - fountains (free), conservatory (free) Bally's - classic showgirl show (Jubilee) Caesars - Forum Shops Flamingo - wildlife habitat Harrah's - Piano Bar, Carnaval Court Mirage - Dolphin Habitat and Secret Garden (tigers/lions), volcano eruption at night Venetian - Madame Tussaud's wax museum, Grand Canal Shops, gondola rides Treasure Island - pirate show (at night, free) Wynn/Encore - beautiful landscaping, Garth Brooks Circus Circus - Adventuredome (skip if you don't have kids) Stratosphere - great restaurant, killer view from the top, crazy rides at the top You should also head downtown if you have a chance, and check out the Fremont Street Experience one night. See a show if you get a chance - Jubilee, David Copperfield, Blue Man Group, a Cirque show, Penn & Teller, Lion King...there are many more possibilities.
