Walking, lunges, and anything (like the thighmaster) that you can squeeze with your legs.

Pilates is supposed to help create long lean muscles. Not sure how true that is, but I find it great. You could look for a pilates dvd that focuses on lower body, or google "pilates moves" to try and find some good ones. It usually involves a lot of variations of leg lifts.

Pilates has been known to slim thighs and target muscles that are normally difficult to target. Winsor pilates is a good place to start.

Be carfull with weights and the legs, if you are not losing weight, but building muscle your legs will get bigger. This is what happened to me, so I am in the weight room only 2 a month for legs. The best place to start is in the kitchen, eat a clean diet, and your legs will get smaller.

rollerblading. it's cardio and strength training in one. I can't do it in winter here, but every summer I have killer gams from rollerblading.

do a lot of stretching. stretch out the muscles. while some believe that ballet will give you slimmer legs, i've learned from my own experience that it only does the opposite. I guess it also has to do with how you use your muscles.
