    Now that Uber/Lyft have started operating in LV many opportunities and activities that were once too much of a hassle to get to are easily accessible. On our last trip to LV my wife and I visited restaurants off strip and were able to get an Uber car within 5 minutes to pick us up and take us back to the strip. In the past the wait for a taxi could easily be 30 minutes or more. So, I am wondering what things does the group here like doing off strip or will now consider doing with Uber/Lyft as an option?

    I’ll start with this; the Imperial Spa just off Sahara.

    They have a co-ed area with several dry heat saunas with different features such as a salt room, clay beds and an ice room. They also have uni-sex areas where the steam room and hot tubs are. You can also get massages and other treatments (same sex therapists though as the services are provided in the uni-sex areas). The past few trips this has been our last stop before we head off to the airport. We spend about 3 hours here just relaxing and unwinding from the trip.

    Honestly, I rarely venture off the Strip, but the most fun thing I did? "Flight lining" out in Bootleg Canyon. Utterly amazing. So much fun. I'd do it again ... but, eh, I hate leaving the Strip. Haha.

    We've gone and stayed off Strip tons for years. Golf, eats, hiking, the lake and river, desert cruising, shopping, casino, whatever.

    My first choice would be the Neon Museum. If you love Vegas and more importantly Vegas history then this place is for you!

    I would like to go to the pinball hall of fame one of these days. I think that is more likely with Uber/Lyft now.

    Admittedly a run-down stadium, the Mets triple-A team is in Vegas so I try and go if they're in town when I'm there. Got to see Zack Wheeler pitch there a few years ago -- maybe I'll get to see him again in May if he's rehabbing!

    I was hoping to check them out in May but they're not at home when I'm there. I just bought a nice 51s hat on ebay last week! They used to be Toronto's farm team so I have some knowledge of them from that time period
