I have done Las Vegas as well, but I would recommend the half. The difference between a marathon and a half are that you usually lose the day before and after the race for rest and recovery while a half you can just rap up in a 4 to 5 hour window. Also, the extra 13 miles in Vegas are not the most interesting ones.
Saying that, I am happy to have done it
I would recommend Marine Corps marathon in Washington as an event. The peoples marathon where a 3:46 saw me in the top10% of all finishers. Americans are crazy for it, I just found it nice.
Davos Swiss Alpine Marathon. Done the K42 twice, liked it a few years ago, hated it last year, but liked having it done.
The rest of the ones like are already mentioned by others.
As for what I need to tick of my list, NY, Boston (will never qualify), possibly Tokyo and Chicago, just to finish the masters off. Disney sounds good, Reykjavik (possibly the half this year).
