Did you know Las Vegas has a Drive In?

I didn't! Admission is $6.25 per adult & $1 per child over 5
Special Tuesday Price $4.25 - not sure if children are cheaper as well on this day

Some important notes:

*They only take cash but there is an ATM in the consession stand*
*Gates open an hour before the show*
*There is a playground and arcades at the consession stand*
*Lots of fun!*

Here is the info & what is playing right now.
(Some nights there are double features - check before you go, that would be two movies for two adults for around $12. That wouldn't happen at a regular movie theater!)

Las Vegas Drive-In

4150 W. Carey Ave. North Las Vegas, NV 89032

17 Again
Angels & Demons
Dance Flick

If we get a group of 10 or more together we can get a special tour, if you're interested please leave a comment or email

Anderson Dairy Ice Cream Tour

Now this is a fun one!

The Barnyard Buddies Tour. The kids get to tour the facility and even see some penguins helping out with the ice cream packaging - very "cool" (ha I crack myself up). Anyway, after a darling video presentation about the history of the dairy and the tour, the group meets back in the "tree" room for a cool treat - Free ice cream!

All we have to do is call and schedule a tour. Anyone interested? Leave a comment or email and we'll schedule a tour for anyone who would like to participate! Let's get a few groups through the summer - check your schedules!

The Home Depot's Kids Workshops offer useful projects including the creation of toolboxes, fire trucks and mail organizers, as well as more educational projects, such as a window birdhouse, bughouse or Declaration of Independence frame kit.

The workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety, while at the same time helping to instill a sense of accomplishment. Additionally, this fun time allows for quality one-on-one time between adults and children.

In addition to the newly constructed project kit, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron, similar to The Home Depot associates' aprons, and an achievement pin.
