    some of the things we cant bring the girls to though...

    Ah, I completely overlooked the 'families' aspect. I guess it is hard to be completely family friendly in Vegas, with porn vending machines on the streets; people spruiking 'escorts' and 'massages' and regularly drunk merry-makers swanning along the street with Yard-Long Margaritas. Still, there is plenty to do if you think you can avoid exposing the kids to that (which is largely a night-time element).

    Well, Mystere is family friendly. The only one that isn't is New York, New York's Zumanity. However, they are all quite pricey, so probably not 'family friendly' in that respect.

    Then I totally second Coca Cola and M & Ms, along with some of the free shows such as:

    - Pirate show at Treasure Island
    - Water show at Bellaggio
    - Lion enclosure at the MGM Grand
    - Volcano at the Mirage
    - Shark reef at the Mandalay Bay (bit expensive though)
    - IMAX theatre at the Luxor (also their collection of Egyptian stuff is fun)

    One people often overlook is the animal enclosures at the Flamingo hotel. Apart from the titular birds being there, they also have penguins, fish and other wildlife. The gardens are quite nice too, but the interior of the hotel just screams bad taste. It is almost worth it for the kitsch value.

    Finally, it is a fair hike down the strip to Circus Circus, but they have the Adventuredome Theme Park. For $22.95 for an all-day pass, they have rollercoasters, VR, midway games, Spongebob Squarepants and more. HEAPS to do. Check it out!

    Re: what do do while in vegas??

    Hi kids - wow, my first post on MiceChat after lurking for months!

    I had to respond to this one since I just spent four days in Las Vegas last week.

    Yes to the Dam Tour. Far more interesting than you might think, and be sure to get a close look at those two winged statues on the Nevada side. It's actually a star map that shows exactly where the moon and stars were positioned on the night the Dam was dedicated in 1936. Fascinating!

    Yes to the *Star Trek* experience, as long as your kids are old enough that it doesn't scare them. And please tell me I'm not the only one who was embarrasingly moved by being "beamed up" onto the *Enterprise*.

    And oh, by all means start saving your $$$ right now and go see KA, the new Cirque du Soleil show at the MGM. You have NEVER seen anything like this! It's expensive, but absolutely fantastic. We are already making plans to go back just to see it again.

    Hope to talk to y'all more later on MiceChat!

    Kelly,
    Everyone is suggesting great things to do in Vegas. But, really, you will find (if you haven't already) that most locals don't spend as much time on the strip as tourists. It really is a family friendly town, and not everything costs an arm and a leg!
    I've been thinking about what else the kids and I do during the winter. Summer--I can think of lots, but with school and all, we don't do so much in the winter, plus, lots of the kid friendly stuff is only in the summer.
    The one big thing we do a lot.....go to Disneyland!
    What kinds of things did you do with the s in CA? I'll keep thinking, and let you know......
