    Yeah yeah I know Vegas is not for kids but they want to stop for a couple days on our way to California. What are some places or things they can do?

    Concur with the PHOF (quarters rule, no silly tokens.) My youngsters (now 3 and 5, but been going since babies) also like the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. Check out Mt. Charleston. Check out the Valley of Fire. You don't say how old. Ages might be in order. Will try to recall, and edit later, other things we have done with the children. Have yet to do the National Atomic Testing Museum (older kids.)

    Throw pennies at homeless people, play "spot the hooker", count M&Ms at the M&M store just to name a few.

    The Pirate show at TI is gone, my friend.
    I'd replace it with Circus Circus Indoor ThemePark.
    Also, don't forget the Rollercoaster at NyNy.

    Agreed on Pinball Hall of Fame, Container Park, Circus Circus & pool time. I'd add Children's Museum (downtown) especially for the 8-yr-old. Also there are several family-friendly afternoon shows that aren't terrible and also not terribly expensive –*Jeff Civillico "Comedy in Action" at Linq, Popovich Pet Theater in the Miracle Mile Shops in PHo, Laughternoon downtown at the D. I'm planning on taking my 7-yr-old to the Mac King show at Harrah's in a couple weeks. Lion Habitat Ranch out by the M Resort is one of the best family-friendly activities we've done, however. One kid gets in free with each paid adult, too.

    The dam is amazing and educational! Also
    the huge sundae at the Sugar Factory would
    be fun for a family to share! M & M shop too!

    I used to really enjoy playing at the arcades as a kid. There's not as many now as there used to be, but I believe the Excalibur, Circus Circus, and New York New York have decent-sized arcades that are still open.

    Bonnie Springs (I think that is what it is called) they do an old west re-enactment cheesy but fun, great for kids.

    Gameworks moved, is it even decent anymore?

    For the 8 year old check the height requirements on the NYNY roller coaster, my 8 year old was just barely too short after they made him take his shoes off for the measurement. Quite the disappointment.

    The rides on top of the Stratosphere are fun.

    Water parks, depending on time of year.

    Buffets, maybe the kids would like trying all the different foods. Like Swordfish at the Bellagio. Well, or hype them up with all the deserts. Main Street Station is a good and inexpensive buffet.

    Weekend evenings on Freemont are fun, lots of concerts and... interesting folks hanging around. Plus the zip line (the smaller ones probably can only do the short zip line, still fun, though.)
