    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.

    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

    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:::
    thanks for the info.. no never been to blueberry hill.. that sounds great though.. what else do they serve?? I want pancakes now) lol

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?

    are there signs on the 95?? that say mt charleston??

    As far as what to do....yup, hiking and picnicing. There are some pretty water falls to hike to if you are adventurous.

    yes we are close to that i think.. we are near buffalo and washington... i would say then it would be maybe 30-45 minutes from us

    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......
    when we were in ca we went to the zoo, the beach., DL of course, knotts, universal studios sea world, aquarioum of the pacific.. walks in the park

    we have been doing the trouist thing on weekends the STRIP only because the girls and i love walking asround the stores
