A lot of people might not consider Las Vegas for a family vacation. Known as ‘Sin City’ for the large presence of alcohol and gambling, this is a destination usually reserved for bachelor parties. But Las Vegas offers all kinds of entertainment, for people of all ages. This can actually be one of the most exciting places for a family vacation.
Here are some of the things you try out while vacationing in Las Vegas with your family.
Stay In The Best Accommodation
Las Vegas is known for some of the most luxurious accommodation in the land. There are high and brightly lit hotels that overlook the strip. However, while most of these hotels are designed to let you go downstairs and gamble, you might want something tamer for a family trip.
You can still get the luxury without the high price. There a lot of apartments and condos with fancy rooms and nice balconies for a perfect stay. So instead of going for one of the big hotels, rejuvenate yourself with hot vacation rentals in Las Vegas. You can get great views of Vegas and a place for your whole family to sleep.
Check Out The Theme Parks
Las Vegas isn’t just for partying- there’s a ton of kid-friendly attractions you can enjoy during the day. The Adventuredome features 25 rides and attractions, with some themed around children’s cartoon characters.
If you’re looking for somewhere to cool off, try out Wet’n’Wild. This is Nevada’s biggest waterpark. It has slides, pools and rides suitable for all age groups, so it’s ideal for a family day out.
See The Unique Attractions
You’re not restricted to just theme park. Las Vegas offers a lot of unique events and attractions your family will love. If you’re a fan of CSI, MGM Grand offers CSI: The Experience, which puts you in the shoes of a crime scene investigator.
Other unique attractions include a Comedy Pet Theater with live animals and Hershey’s Chocolate World. Las Vegas also has a Madame Tussauds. Being known as The Entertainment Capital of the World has its perks, so there’s more than enough family activities.
Do Some Thrill Seeking
There’s plenty of fun to be had for thrill seekers in Las Vegas. There are lots of places for bungee-jumping, zip lining and even some indoor skydiving attractions.

There are a lot of shopping centers and malls in Vegas for those who want to indulge themselves in a little retail therapy. Many also offer special events, such as runway shows in the aptly named ‘Fashion Show’ mall.
