Good luck with the Circus Circus.  It is dirty, crowded and seems to be the place that parents feel is all access free day care.  Keep a good eye on your children when you are in that casino.  There are tons of things to do with kids here.  It is going to be very hot so if you do plan on spending any length of time outside be prepared with a good sun block tons of water and shady hats.  You might want to visit the springs preserve.   It is a very kid friendly interactive natural museum.  They have a web site just goggle springs preserve las vegas.  You can also visit the gocitykids.com web site and type in Las Vegas look up the dates you will be here and it will tell you everything that is going on for those dates.

As far as Vegas goes, only been there like 3 times and that was only because our son was in a tournament. It really depends....some people really love vegas and others don't....our kids did do a thing where they sit on a carpet and the guy tells them when to move and what to do....they make a short movie out of it and when its done, it looks like the kids are actually flying on a magic carpet....think its in Circus Circus but not sure.  As a whole none of us are really into vegas....we only go if our son is in a tournament there.

As for Utah....the Mormon Temple grounds are worth walking through, it is beautiful...they used to have tours of the Tabernacle but don't know if they still do.  Theres quite a lot of history in SLC.  One thing I would suggest is Bryce Canyon....its amazing. Think there is a camp ground near there and perhaps horse rentals...you'd have to check...but really the Canyon is something you don't want to miss.

ok i live in vegas and circus circus is NOT always crowded, dirty etc... tourists come to vegas durring tourist season... EVERY CASINO ON THE STRIP/FREMONT STREET IS CRAZY BUSY AND CROWDED DURRING THESES SUMMER MONTHS! I like ur choice and its probably one of the best choices if ur bringing kids with you! (one of the more kid friendly casinos)

SOME OTHER THINGS TO DO?

M&M World

Coca Cola World

The Midway (at Circus Circus)

The Shark Reef (at MGM or Mirage... i cant remember)

Game works ( for the older child mostly)

The Leid Descovery Museum (off strip but lots of fun for kids)

Pirate Show (***FREE*** at the Tropicana)

Water Show (*** FREE*** at the Belagio)

The Wax Museum (at the Venetian)

Lion habitat (***Free*** at MGM)

and its a little expensive but the kids will LOVE the rainforest cafe in MGM ( i love it too!!!)

MUST See Casinos: Luxor, MGM, Mirage, New York New York, Tropicana, Circus Circus, Stratosphere (go to the top at night)... these are all things i think the kids will love! hope this helps!

Ok I never been to Utah - but im sure u will find kid friendly places. Vegas ehhh NEVER AGAIN I been there several times (without kids) and we went 1x w. the kids to visit some friends (who have kids) we stood at the circus circus as well and to be honest it wasnt my thing vegas to me is a place for adults no matter how much they want to dress it up for kids i cannot tell u how many times these trucks would pass on the strip and had pics of 1/2 naked women on them - to then i would have to explain to my DD- its not my thing

New York New York has a lot of fun, kid-friendly things and it's nicer than Circus Circus.
