    Hey folks, can we please watch the dam language in this thread, please? Hope you have great times living in Las Vegas, Kelly.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    There is an old western town out past red rock called Bonnie Springs Ranch (I think). I don't know how authentic everything really is but they put on a couple of shows and there is a really old wax museum. I went with my daughter's class on their field trip, it wasn't spectacular but it had some cool elements.

    You can always kill a day by visiting cousin Eddie out in that patch of Gov't land and helping the kids out with "round-up time"!!! LOL

    And don't forget the dam bait!

    Red Rock Canyon has some really great hikes, and I seem to be able to remember some go-karting place near the airport I think... it was always lots of fun. And of course there is Hoover Dam, the tours were always enjoyable.

    The game place on the strip is fun. Lots of arcade stuff. (I forget the exact name but it's near the giant Coke bottle.) They've got a really good rock climbing wall.

    Do go see the Liberace Museum. High camp tacky fun.

    Re: what do do while in vegas??

    Kelly--hope you are getting settled in. DON"T GO TO THE ZOO. It will only make you sad. It is really not a zoo, more like a few small dirty pens with animals in them. Most people go there once, and that's it. If you go, be more expecting a low budget animal sancuary than anything else. This is nothing like the LA or San Diego zoos. NOTHING.

    With kids:
    Tule springs state park (or floyd lamb--people call it both) take 95 north to durango, head east. Follow durango to state park signs. There is a small lake that is stocked with fish (not sure if you need a fishing license) and ducks and geese--make sure you bring along some bread so the kids can feed them.

    Gilcrease orchards--it is kind of a fun, small, u-pick orchard with apples, (they make some awesome cider that you can buy) peaches, squash, and a bunch of other stuff. I think the pumpkins are about ready, and that is always a fun way to get your halloween jack-o-lantern--pick it yourself! Same basic directions, but once you are heading east on durango, take a right on grand teton, just past the high school you will see all the trees, go around the trees to the enterance.

    Next weekend is the renaissance festival at sunset park. (take 95 south to tropicana, head west. Take a right on....(shoot, can't think of the street name.......at the sams club!) and follow that to the park. It is a fun festival, with food, jousting, etc.

    We spend a lot of time at the library. They have outdoor movies in the summer, etc. The best two in town (in my opinion) are there by you (I think, although not entirely sure where you are)--the summerlin library--just north of summerlin parkway--take the town center exit., and the library on west sahara--take the 215 to sahara and head east.

    Anderson Dairy is a fun place to take the kids--you get to watch a short film, and then watch them making ice-cream or sour cream, or something. They give you a dish of ice cream too. You just have to call ahead and set up a time. To get there, head east on the 95 to Las Vegas BLVD, head north. Just past the cemetary turn right, and it will be on your left. This is also a GREAT place to get popcicles if your kids love them, it is where the "ice cream men" get theirs--jsut find the dock, and the regular sized door. You go in and order what you want, then wait for them to pull it for you.

    There is a fun laser tag place on west lake mead (95 to lake mead, go west, it is at tenaya I think) it is in the same strip mall area as the local Chuck E. Cheese

    You could drive up to Mt. Charleston now, it is a nice time to go for a family picnic and/or hike. You might even be able to see signs of fall in las vegas there! And as has been mentioned, skiing and tubing in the winter.


    Thats all that comes to mind at the moment that hasn't been mentioned. I'll be thinking.....

    Re: what do do while in vegas??

    Valley of Fire is in the general area of Lake Mead. It is a nice drive through empty (or was empty 16 years ago) desert, with rolling hills. It seemed like it took us forever to get there, but we approached it from the north, we came back via the road off of Lake Mead, and went right past the visitor center. I just can't remember any of the road names...it has been a verrry long time.
