    Where are you staying? I know of hotels that have day care, although I don’t know if Lain is a bit young for many of those.

    I don’t think I can make it out there during the week, unfortunately.Report

    Well nuts….we’re going to vegas but not for two weeks.
    Have you ever been to Hoover Dam? May not be exactly baby centric, but its not far out of Vegas. NPS is generally baby friendly in their history exhibits. They have done a great job with the history of building the dam. Plus you can take a pix of Lain with the dam in the background and post it to Facebook with a clever line like “the cutest baby by a damn site.”

    There is an aquarium in the Mandalay Bay.

    Sadly the Star Trek Experience closed so you can get her a drink at Quark’s Bar and her first Vulcan Ears.Report

    Well, I think the best thing about vegas is it’s proximity to zion, but I will say that the food and the massages at our hotel, when we stayed there for the ex wife’s conference, were very nice.

    We also managed to take in an exhibit of Ansel Adams photography but missed the “star trek experience”. There is always jerking around the jewerlry store attendants. 🙂Report

    There’s always geo-caching. Somehow, I felt like Vegas might be one of the more interesting areas to do that.Report

    Lain’s probably too young to enjoy the theme-park hotels or ride the roller coaster at New York, New York. But MGM has a pretty cool lion exhibit (and lots of lion-related kitsch). One of the other hotels–I forget which–used to have a tiger display. We were never able to find it because the signage is terrible. They clearly want you to throw down money at the gambling table.

    There are a lot of high-end stores in the new urban chic Vegas because baby’s never too young for her first pair of Pradas.Report

    Baccarat for High Stakes.

    I was somewhat amused to see the high-stakes gamblers in Vegas. They let the hotel staff but all their luggage onto a cart except that one bag…..Report

    Hit the buffet. What do you have back home? Golden Corral? Feh! (sweeps hand dismissively)

    The baby is not yet five, that means that she eats free! Take advantage of that!Report
