    Usual places, Numpty.
    My lads were about your age when we went to NY and they were, against their life breath , knocked out by the Broadway show we dragged them to. It was Fosse and it was stunning. See what's on - you can book on the day. Don't lose your wallet on the Empire State Building simulator.
    Not been to LA or Vegas.
    Have a super holiday xxx

    Bring me back some sweets

    much love

    I've heard they dont really have great sweets and choc out in America, unless people know of good stuff for me to try? Ive had Hersheys before and it tasted like feet lol

    American food is dreadful, except for the fast food - which is much better than in the UK ....IMO!

    Lucky Charms
    Twinkies
    Mountain Dew
    Tootsie roll
    Mike & Ike
    Butterfinger
    Peanut M&Ms
    Babyruth
    Pop tarts

    Just some off the top of my head.

    Most of the above stuff is disgusting. Peanut butter m&ms are where it's at.

    In Vegas if you decide to go to the Stratosphere (tall tower) I would watch how you get there as 'walking' involves passing through a very dodgy looking area. You can get a monorail from the back of most casinos on the MGM side i believe.

    One thing I wanted to do but never got around to in vegas is trying a shooting range as I heard one of them had an old tommy gun.

    Downtown LA there is pretty much nothing but poverty, so i'd recommend santa monica and venice beach. At this time of year the beach will be trawling with clunge. Work on a Scottish accent and you are guarenteed to pull. Some great places to eat and drink there as well. Also worth heading up and checking out the UCLA campus. It's easy to get to, just jump on the big blue bus.

    If you have the monies i'd recommend a helicopter trip to grand canyon when in Vegas. Try and go see the the beatles one show. Go on the nascar ride in the Sahara and never register your credit card at a strip joint.

    Peanut butter m&m's and reese's cups are amazing (a LOT of peanut butter based sweets over there), but most of the chocolate isn't very good. Cheetos are amazing!!

    Good luck ya bummer!

    Would agree with dcx about LA. It was a huge let down for us.
    Not the glitz and glamour you expect, especially hollywood !!

    I would recommend doing the movie star tour round beverley hills, some amazing houses and you get to know who lives where etc with the guide.
    Rod Stewarts was my favourite, maybe because he had an armed guard sat under an umbrella in his front garden, with 2 ferraris and a bentley sat on his drive !!

    Vegas is amazing, fantastic place.
    Just walk the strip and pop in and out of all the hotels and just chill.
    Do the grand canyon helicopter trip, all the free shows, gambling etc.

    I'm sure you will love vegas !!!

    Have fun.

    dungavel - spoken like an expert. lol re: cc usage at strip joint.

    last time i was in LA was .... oooh let's see ... early 90s! too young to know or appreciate *sigh.

    coolios for the info peeps, we are staying near the Marina del rey in LA so that should be near the beaches etc, I do have quite a good scottish accent so I might give it a whirl I did lol at this also

    trawling with clunge



    I think with LA we will probs be wrecked with the jet lag etc so it will be more of a chillout place where as we will do some more stuff in Vegas and NY

    I am very touched

    have fun ...

    get some peanut butter M&M's... yummy

    Marina del rey is right next to Santa Monica, about 5-10mins walking distance. Its quite bohemian and relaxed so its ideal for teh jet lag.

    Just remembered there is also Universal studios to check out.

    I am most jealous! When in NY I would reccomend getting a ferry over to staten island and back (you can just get off and wait for one to take you back as there is not much to actually do on the island!) because it goes right past the Statue Of Liberty and you get a really good panoramic view of the city on your way back - works out a lot cheaper then going directly to the statue and the queues can be horrendous for that anyway.

    Universal Studios in LA is cool and a lot of fun, and I would reccomend getting a guided tour because the place is so spread out you will never get to see everything on your own steam.

    Vegas I would just suggest walking the strip and seeing it all that way, pop into a few casinos and enjoy the sites, gambling is a lot more expensive then it was a few years ago, first time I went they had 1 dollar blackjack tables, minimum now seems to be $10 a hand! Even so I managed to play for a fair while on just $30 starting money and actually ended up $5 up so if you know how to play you can make a small amount last a long time.
    You will no doubt be approached by lots of people offering you stuff on the strip - they are trying to get you to look at timeshare properties which you probably want to avoid! Although they will often give you free stuff if you go - we spent a couple of hours listening to crap then said "no thanks!" and they gave us $100 in chips, tickets each to a show of our choice and then drove us anywhere we wanted to go so it worked out ok but they can be damn pushy!

    I meant a guided tour of LA in general, not Universal Studios lol (damn edit not working for me!)

    milk duds!!!!!!!

    you gonna go disney???

    do me a favour and dont bother coming back....actually gutted that im not going vegas with you enjoy...*walks away crying*
