Hi Everyone ! We are visiting Vegas in April...My wife , me and our 10 year old son(from England). It`s only for a couple in nights, driving from our cousins in Redlands, CA. I havn`t been to Vegas since May, 2001 and up to then I had been 13 times. Is it still a good move to use Industrial Road and Koval Lane to get around, we will drive the strip once- just so they can say they did it ! I`ve banged on about Vegas so many times and decided they really needed to experience "Sin City". I know it`s not really for kids but I`m sure he can enjoy it as much as I used to. We plan on trips out during the day, I was thinking Lake Mead and Hoover Dam and I want them to see my other favourite place, Death Valley. As it`s probably changed quite a bit in the last 15 years, I was wondering if it was still best to arrive on a Monday or Tuesday for the best room rates and which Strip Hotel would be best for us stay at? I was thinking of Excalibur, I always remember a lot of families milling around but never having being with kids in tow I wouldn`t really know. Also, the gambling laws regarding kids, is it illegal to have a quick play on the slots with children in the party? If one of us was to pop $20 in a slot near enough to somewhere where one of us was sat with our son to watch, is that still a big no-no? Might seem like a daft question but it would be great for him to see us get a potential win ( I used to enjoy Wheel Of Fortune, if they are still around ). Also, is the Ethel M museum still open in Henderson? Thanks in advance for any replies....See you in April!! Andi.
