The Forum Shops began the entertainment malls of Las Vegas in 1992 as I remember it, and they still do a captivating job. The domed ceiling is sky painted and constantly changes from night to day and back at such a slow pace it seems real.

Without having to go into the casino, the Forum stands on its own as a destination while using Caesars’ free parking.
While in Vegas it never hurts to take in a show or two. Get wild with your gal pal and head out to see the buff and sexy bodies of the men of the Thunder from Down Under. Although this is a slightly cheesy show, the screaming silliness of it all will demand that you and your girls let loose in a roll of hilarity and giddiness.
