OK I'm a little embarrased about this(maybe more than a little), but we are taking our kids to Vegas. Something we SWORE we would never do! In fact I almost used my husband's sign on so i didn't have to post this under my good name . "It's not a place for kids" "Why would people do that to their poor children" "This is our place, we're not sharing it with our kids" "We come here to be people we don't want our kids to know about" "They'll bug us to come every time we go"....these are just a few of the things we've said over the years and years we've gone to vegas leaving our children behind and tell them that they don't allow kids there and that if they did go they'd hate it. So this year we are going to do a massive remodel to our home. We promised the kids a family vacation this summer and planned for it, a cruise or disneyland we told them. Then we found out there was only 1 week available to us the entire summer and that tickets to LA r/t from PDX were $1600. That's just to get to disney or the dock. Doesn't include all the rest. HUMMMMmmmmm. Vegas is much more affordable. "honey what if we took the kids to vegas for the summer vacation?" Hummmmm, we certainly won't be able to go anytime soon?" "That could work out"......really was this coming out of our mouths?????????? Well sure enough next time we knew we had another family in on it and we had 7 tickets, a suite at MB and a comped room booked to vegas the first week school was out. I've been to Vegas over a dozen times and never ever, even once stepped foot in Circus Circus, Stratusphere or anything other than the main floor casino of the Excaliber. We have 2 youngish teens (15 and 14) and a 6 year old and 4 adults. We will tag team hanging out with kids so the others can gamble and plan to lock them all together in the suite and take away the mini-bar key after dark. Tell me about taking kids to vegas, and I only want to hear the good and helpful stuff. How much money do I need to give them to play at the adventuredome. The admission I assume only covers rides, not midway games and arcade games. What is a not miss kid thing in Vegas. Might there be somethign I've been avoiding to stay away from kids in Vegas that I'd actually maybe enjoy. Where are the best resturants that are not Fast food or Denny's for kids in Vegas. I think Hash House is definately on our list. OK your help is much apprecitaed. And please don't think less of me. We were desperate.......you might have done it too if you thought it'd be your only opportunity for the rest of the year to get to our fair city!!!
