Can't understand why a non gambler would want to spend time in Vegas but as no-one else has replied to your post these are my suggestions based on what I have done in Vegas other than gamble.

The thrill rides at the Stratosphere.

Penguin feeding times at the Flamingo 8.30am & 3pm.

The light show at Fremont Street.

Helicopter ride at night over the strip.

Secret garden at the Mirage.

Lions habitat at the MGM.

suewick-thanks for the tips, hopefully others will respond as well...

It's going to be nice and warm there with no rain this weekend, just sick of the rain here, wanted to see something else for a change.

Shopping:

Downtown at night

Spa treatments

Bowling at Orleans

Big Elvis (afternoon at Barbary Coast)

3D movie- IMAX theater Luxor

Wax Museum=Venetian(look for coupons)

Shark Reef Mandalay Bay

Gondola rides-Venetian

Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower- Paris

Go to 1/2 price ticket booths and get tickets for a show during the afternoon or night:

At the coke bottle next to MGM

Tix4tonight-4 locations:

Hawaiian Marketplace at Polo Towers

Fashion show mall-near Neiman Marcus

4 Queens downtown

If you have never been to Vegas before just walking the strip at night (or even during the day) popping in all the casinos looking at their public areas and attractions will be enough to keep you busy-just bring comfortable shoe.

The teen-ager will not be allowed near any bar or gaming area. S/he will have to keep moving.

Don't know if 2 days are enough, but the Star Trek the Experience ride at the LV Hilton is fun for sci-fi lovers. You can get half price tickets (there is a surcharge per ticket however) and either one of the half price ticket outlets.
