Las Vegas. Sin City. It doesn’t sound very child-friendly does it?
So, what exactly is there in Las Vegas that allows you to have a fun-filled, family holiday that doesn’t include strip clubs and women in bizarre feathered costumes? Well the good news is that Las Vegas is a lot more child and family friendly than what you might think.
For a start to a family holiday there is the Adventure Dome at Circus Las Vegas, which is currently America’s largest indoor theme park featuring the world’s only indoor double loop, double corkscrew roller coaster. If you want to frighten you children half to death (your choice, I’m not judging) you could visit the Las Vegas Bodies Exhibition; keep in mind that the exhibition does feature real human bodies and may be more suited if you happen to be the Addams family.
There is a state-of-the-art arcade called Game Works which welcomes people of all ages, if you fancy a small gamble.
You could also take a family trip to Madame Tussauds where you could get up close and very personal with George Clooney, careful though because he’ll only be wax.
Las Vegas also has just as many family friendly hotels as any other kind. If you would like lots of nearby activities the Cosmopolitan Hotel is ideal and is within walking distance of the fountain display at the Ballegio hotel. However, you may want some complimentary entertainment while you stay in Vegas with the family, if so the Mirage Hotel has an erupting volcano show, Bottle-nose Dolphin habitat/show and white Lion display.
One hotel that would most probably deliver on an imaginative and fun family stay would be the Excalibur Hotel where you and your whole family would be transported back into the kingdom of King Arthur. There are plenty of things for you and your children to do, it is Vegas so it does include an arcade and casino but here, you could be a knight at the round table.
Today Las Vegas is much more than an adult-only atmosphere. There is lots of family fun to be had!
