The Under 21, over 18 Crowd

 what fun things would you recommend for those underage? Two of our guests (a BM and the BM) will not be 21, but will be 18/19. We do a lot of things that you dont have to be legal to enjoy, but you guys have good ideas I hardly ever think of so I figured why not ask?

Thanks!

    You don't havee to be 21 to enjoy most pools...of course there's always the 21 and up pools though.

    What about catching a few shows? There's a special on Travel Zoo for quite a few of the Cirque du Soliel shows. Ka is my favorite so far, but I think that Mystere's tickets are pretty reasonable (as Cirque shows go). Then there's all the concerts, magicians, comedians etc.

    </div><div>Are you serious? I hope you're kidding. Most clubs/bars know how to tell a fake ID, I've had friends before that tried but were denied because they knew it was fake. I don't think OP would want people in her WP getting in any trouble right before the wedding. </div><div>
    </div><div>
    </div><div>There are many fun things to do for the underage crowds. My underage BILs enjoyed going to shows(they loved the Mac King show, a mix of comedy and magic) and walking around Freemont. They can also see what each hotel has to offer, the various shows at night. Madame Tussaud's is always fun, most people enjoy that. Shopping like PPs have said, the outlets are great and many hotels have their shops as well. They might also like Town Square(my favorite), it's a great place to shop and it's pretty there. And there's the theme park inside Circus Circus(if they like roller coasters and such. There's lots more stuff to do!!! </div>

    </div><div>I believe all shows can be watched by 18 and over(and others can be watched even by kids). Even ones like Jubilee(they go topless) or Thunder From Down Under, they just can't drink. </div>

    Nope, just a suggestion, take it or leave it.

    Also, there is a "kid's casino" in NYNY with arcade games and stuff like that. Also the roller coaster is awesome!  I think it's open pretty late, too.

    LOL Im with you Camille :) Where Im from the legal age is 18. Ive always wondered why the US has a different drinking age than marriage/voting/fighting for their country. Just something to think about...

    Dont forget Freemont. We had a 17 year old with us (a groomsmen's daughter) who had been to Vegas twice before and she really loved Freemont :)

    edit - make sure theyre accompanied if going to freemont :p

    i appreciate all the suggestions, and will definately look into them. I just wanted to make sure i could suggest things for them to do without feeling like they couldnt do anything.

    Camille I apologize that you were not joking. i guess i was just taken aback by an illegal option given, and havent heard of anyone using a fake since undergrad lol. if they want to drink I doubt they are going to have much of a problem but none of us are really into the clubs and if Fi and I go to one or a bar we'll just save it till they arent around :)

    I have to admit that we had a 20-year old with us (who is Australian, and has been drinking legally for two years). We didn't try and get her into any clubs or anything, but at my Bachelorette and the reception meals she was able to drink wine and order from the bar with no hassle at all, which really surprised me.
