    Go to the M&M store (5 floors of super cool stuff), indoor arcades for the kids, try and walk the entire strip, watch the pirate show at Treasure Island, walk through the shopping area of Ceasar’s Palace (full for kids too- lots of moving and talking statues) and shop on Freemont Street.

    There really is so much to do in Las Vegas besides gambling and there’s more to Las Vegas then just the strip. During my most recent visit I used a site called http://www.oneeventguide.com that really helped me find things to do that my family and I could enjoy. We spent a day off the strip doing a few of the events we found on here!

    You forgot to mention that that Las Vegas is home to the SunBuggy Vegas Mini Baja Chase – an amazing dune buggy off road experience that is known for being – “the most fun possible on 4 wheels!”
