      Kelly, sorry, just saw this. It reallyd epends on what area of Summerlin you live in.... do you know where the 215 and the 95 meet in the norwest area of town? (where the superwalmart and the sam's club are?) It's about a 30 minute drive from there.
      As far as what to do....yup, hiking and picnicing. There are some pretty water falls to hike to if you are adventurous.

          Sounds about right. Buffalo and washington--just hop on the 95, and head north. You'll come to the turnoff fairly quickly, but you have to drive for a while to get up the mountain.

I just am wondering what to expect on my first winter here.. like how cold does the temperature get, etc? do the girls need winter coats or are fall coats warm enough?

                  It gets pretty cold in Vegas. I know last year there were snow flurries out in the Henderson area around Christmas time, but nothing that really stayed on the ground. Depending on how cold-resistant the girls are, they might need winter coats. Something like a nice wool coat from Burlington would probably be fine for them.

                  On a side note, have you been to Blueberry Hill yet? It's the best breakfast place in town. They have REALLY yummy pancakes. I guess the closest one to you (that I know of, at least) would be the one on Decatur just before Sahara. It's a little bit of a drive from Summerlin, but definitely worth it! Now I want chocolate chip pancakes... :::SIGH:::
                  All I needed to know in life, I learned at MiceChat.
                  And kindergarten.
                  :yea:

                      If you've ever been to an original pancake house here in So Cal, it's similar. WAY better than IHOP! They also have a decent lunch/dinner menu...

                            of course.. there is gambling, and I love that, we have done the tourist thing on weekends, go on the strip and walk through the hotels (love doing that),

                            but what other things are there to do here? especially for families? is there a las vegas zoo, festivals, etc
                            I would love to hear from anyone who has some input?

                            thanks in advance
                            I didn't read through the replies, but the aquarium at Mandalay Bay was awesome! And definitely family friendly.

                                Understandable, particularly at the end, where you can stand over the acrylic floor, but, being a diver here, I'd give almost *anything* to dive that tank! But I understand the girls being a little scared of it all.
