JW Marriott in Las Vegas in April

I am taking my family to Vegas the first week of April.  I am looking for exciting things to do with a family in the area.  I know the norms like Hoover Dam, golf, and the free shows on the strip, but is there anything else that is a must do? We like adventure, hiking, fishing - just about anything.

 

I will also post back once we return.

    Go to Fremont Street.  It is an outdoor mall with theorigianl casinos.  The kids will like the lights and entertainment.  You can get good cheap tables.  I think it is in the Queens casino where they have Shrimp coctails for 99cents.  they are in a small sundae dish.  Very good and also other cheap food.

    I hope you will be renting a car otherwise, the taxi fees could add up substantially as I believe the JW isnt that close to the strip.  taxi fees always add up there.  I stayed at the Renaissance there last year which is one block off the strip and it took no less than $10-15 each way to get to the strip and way to far to walk. 

    As far as the trip, you have to go to the forum shops at Caesars.  Eat at Spago there (Wolfgang Puck's), awesome pizza and not that expensive and perfect for relaxing and watching people (famous people as well) walk by.

    I'm sure I've missed your trip as this is the middle of the April that I'm posting this reply, but there are a few things to do with Kids - there's a marshmallow factory with tours and the Ethyl M Chocolate Factory.  Getting outdoors, Red Rock Canyon is only about 30 minutes north of the city and has some easy and incredible hikes.  We happened on it near dusk one trip and saw bats flying, indian markings on rocks, etc.  I hope to go back and do much more hiking (was with mother in law and we didn't go very far).  But I was amazed at how close it was to Vegas.  End of April, I'm going to Sky Walk at Grand Canyon (2.5 hours from Vegas), Hoover Dam and Death Valley is only another 2.5 hour drive.  We'll only be in Vegas for a couple of nights passing through and will hit the highlights for kids there - Bellagio Fountains, Treasure Island sinking ships, etc.  Looking forward to reading your updated post.
