Things to see in and near Las Vegas.

So you’re going to Vegas--I wish you the best
as you leave from the east and depart for the west.
I’ve been prompted to show you what sights you should see,
and perhaps one or two which you ought to let be.

Red Rock Canyon is special, so strike up the band;
it’s a canyon, all right, though much smaller than Grand.
Lot’s of sandstone and granite inherent to Earth;
make some time for Red Rock and get your money’s worth.

The Botanical Gardens at Bellagio
is another neat place near Las Vegas to go.
See the fauna exotic and flora like lace;
wild orchids and plants from all over the place.

Those casinos in Vegas are awesome for sure;
blackjack dealers and all one-armed bandits concur.
It’s a matter of course for the city you’re in
to make sure you see that new casino called Wynn.

Energy is Las Vegas--it’s well worth the trip;
one would have to be blind to not notice the Strip.
It’s the city of lights--many think that it rocks;
but beware in casinos for there are no clocks.

Artifact exhibitions are easy to find;
the Titanic is one which will dazzle your mind.
There are pyramids like those in Egypt, all right;
Eiffel Tower provides a Parisian delight.

Hoover Dam is a must and it’s not far away;
the result was Lake Mead as the water did stay.
Yet electrical power, those turbines extant;
you may pass by Dam Hoover, but I hope you can’t.

Ah, Las Vegas can be an electric tabloid,
yet I won’t be demanding ‘bout what to avoid.
You may see unmarked jets, white reflecting the sun;
pay no heed--they’re bound for Area Fifty One.

In the Stratosphere Tower you will see afar;
(even though you’re up high, you will know where you are.)
It’s a great place to see Vegas from there above;
to be sure, all around there is plenty to love.

Your good sense be your guide in this place of renown;
may your countenance glow and eschew any frown.
I have not any doubt that your stay will be nice,
but be wary of wheels and those unbalanced dice.
