Frommer's Las Vegas with Kids

Area 51 - Infamous around the world, Area 51 is perhaps the most well-known secret air base on the planet. Surrounded in controversay and conspiracy, Area 51 is best thought of as housing UFO's and alien bodies recovered from the Roswell, New Mexico flying saucers crash. Tales of reverse engineering of alien space craft to numerous sightings of foreign and unexplained flying objects in the night skies, bring visitors to the nearby town of Rachel, Nevada right off the Extraterrestrial Highway, to investigate. Rachel is also home to the Area 51 Research Center and a great little cafe called the Little A Le Inn. Known by many names such as Groom Lake and Dreamland, this was the design location of the stealth fighter. This secret air base is nestled in Several dry lake beds in the area provide ample testing grounds for high-security designed aircraft and anything "out-of-this-world". The US Government denies the existance of this base which is clearly seen on Russian satellite transmissions and by the brave few who hike to the boundaries of this intensely secure area. Signs warn that trespassers may be subject to deadly force. James Bond style listening devices and video cameras dot the entire perimeter. Black SUV's and helicopters appear out of nowhere at the slightest intrusion. But don't worry...the US Government says...there's nothing there!

Bonnie & Clyde's "Death Car" - If you're stopping by Primm, NV (Stateline - about 35 miles south of Las Vegas on Interstate 15) stop in at Whiskey Pete's Hotel & Casino to see the actual bullet-riddled Ford in which the famous bank robbers had their final shoot out with the FBI. A letter from Ford Motor Company authenticates the car as Clyde's. And a letter he wrote to Ford Motor Company offering his praises as a fine get-away car is also displayed. Read about the last years of Bonnie and Clyde's turbulent life style. A fascinating piece of American history. Recently added is the actual blood stained, bullet-holed shirt Clyde was wearing when he was killed. Also on display is a restored Dutch Schultz-Al Capone bullet-proof Gangster Car. The intriguing display is located in the rotunda that joins the resort to The Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas. Adm: FREE 7 days, 24 hours.

"Bugsy" Segal Memorial
- Located in a small grotto behind the Flamingo Hilton Hotel, you'll find a plaque dedicated to a man who many say inspired the creation of Las Vegas. This Los Angeles mobster happened upon the Flamingo Hotel while still under construction. He decided to purchase the unfinished property and from there it's history.

China Ranch Date Farm
- If you want to get away from the glitter of neon, take a drive out to the a beautiful natural oasis just on the Nevada / California border to a quaint little place called China Ranch. Rich with western history, this small working farm offers an incredible selection of fresh grown dates and delicious baked goods. The huge date palms are skirted with, hard to believe but yes, women's attire. The brightly colored petticoats keep the birds at bay so patrons may enjoy the best of the harvest. A short walking trail through the palm grove explains the wide variety of dates cultivated here. It's a good idea to stop at the gift shop on your way out for a batch of fresh made chocolate chip date cookies or date nut bread. It's on the way to Death Valley from Las Vegas and the area surrounding the farm is rich with abandoned mines and scenic cliffs. The Old Spanish Trail is within walking distance, as is the historic Tonopah & Tidewater railroad bed. A short drive from the ranch you'll find a natural Tecopa hot springs where people from all over sit and relax, letting the unrefined mineral waters soak their troubles away. 760-852-4415, Open 9am-5pm Daily

Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden

Then you can munch on free samples while picking out sweet gifts to send to friends. Don't forget to stroll the amazing, botanical cactus gardens outside the factory. Hundreds of beautiful blooming cacti are named and categorized. At Christmas time this is one of the must-sees as all the plants are draped with lights and decorations.

The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace - Although predominantly a place to shop and dine, this indoor mall has a few unique attractions to offer as well. Foremost are the animated statues and laser show at the center pavilion. "Statue Animations" are about every half hour and are nearly unbelievable (or should we say believable). Watch Bacchus come to life and chat amongst the other gods and goddesses while above you a fantastic laser light show brings the ceiling to life too. There is also the free Atlantis show outside the IMAX Theatre. Here you can watch an animated statue tale of Atlantis rising from the sea and as the Gods decreed sink back to the ocean bottom. Afterwards venture into the IMAX for an atlantis oriented thrill ride. Also while there, keep an eye on the sky-like ceiling which very subtlety changes from dawn to dusk over the course of about a half an hour.

Entertainment on 2 stages set up in the mall on various weekends and holidays also add to the excitement of Downtown Las Vegas. FREE admission. (800) 249-3559.

Hard Rock Cafe
- - This institute of higher rocking is a monument in itself. Nestled beneath a 100 ft neon electric guitar sign, this restaurant / gift shop / bar classifies as a museum in its own right. The walls are draped with memorabilia from every pop and rock legend of the 50's through the 90's. Don't miss the Madonna bustier or the hand written Jim Morrison song lyrics.

Oldest Living Bristlecone Pine in the World - about 40 miles Northwest of Las Vegas, near Mt Charleston is the oldest known living Bristlecone Pine tree in the world.

There was also a fantastic gift shop for those hard-to-find cranberry items, as well as a free juice bar and cranberry desserts at the end of the tour. CLOSED

DIVE! Las Vegas - Now Closed. A Steven Spielberg brain child. DIVE! was a submarine-themed restaurant located in the front of the Fashion Show Mall. Everything from the entrance in the underground parking lot to the top floor was kept in submarine context. When the alarms sound to DIVE, the windows appeared to actually submerge under the sea. Scenes of Atlantis and beautiful aquatic life swam past the huge front screen. A sky trolley with strange looking submarines traversed the entire restaurant. Oh, and guess which sandwich on the menu Mr. Spielberg invented; claims are he couldn't get one like this anywhere else so he had to open his own restaurant to get one. Unfortunately he'll have to make it himself now. CLOSED

Famous Brands International (formerly: Kidd & Co.) Marshmallow Factory - The world famous Kidd Marshmallow factory (flattened by the Pepcon Rocket Fuel Factory explosion about 10 years ago and rebuilt from scratch - don't worry the rocket fuel factory has since relocated) is also located just outside of the Las Vegas city limits.

A small gift shop offered some keepsakes of this remarkable adventure. FREE admission. 702-891-1111.

Million Dollar Display - This venue closed shortly after the death of Ted Binion. Rumor has it that his sister removed it from the casino.

It was located downtown in Binion's Horseshoe Hotel & Casino you'd have found this cool display of 100, discontinued, yet entirely legal tender $10,000 bills (A genuine US$1,000,000 in all!) which you could have walked right up and stood next to.

The Sirens of TI - Replacing the original Buccaneer Bay show in 2004 is the sexy sirens pirate show. Renegade pirates are lured inside Siren's Cove by the siren songs.
