Are you considering Las Vegas for your next family holiday? If not, you should be. Traditionally regarded as an adults-only destination where wild nightlife and casinos dominate, there's now an abundance of activities for the entire family; even Aunty Edith.
From world-class rides to hotels that come complete with lazy rivers, read on for our top family-friendly picks. After all, this could be the neon sign you've been looking for…
Warning: we have it on good authority that children squeal with joy as soon as the doors open. Three storeys tall and brimming with interactive exhibits, this educational paradise will engage your young ones for hours on end. Its centrepiece is a 70-foot climbing structure, guaranteed to put your local park to shame, complete with enticing slides and science exhibits.
Give your kids the ultimate holiday bragging rights with a ride on the world's tallest observation wheel. Enjoy incredible, sweeping views as you soar 550 feet over the centre of the Las Vegas Strip. Children under seven ride free, leaving more money for ice cream!
Never mind the kids, unleash your inner child at Adventure Dome, an indoor amusement park featuring 25 exciting rides and attractions. Race through a web of lasers, take to the bumper cars for a crash course in driving or ride one of the exhilarating roller coasters. From classic carousel rides to indoor climbing, there's no shortage of family fun.
Magical in its approach, the Mirage Hotel has unlimited ways to keep kids entertained; think Mary Poppins in hotel form. Renowned for its iconic volcano, prepare to be mesmerised by fireballs, massive explosions and eruptions every evening. Head to the stage for the Mirage's own family-friendly Cirque du Soleil show.
With four swimming pools, three whirlpools and tumbling waterfalls, the MGM Grand offers buckets of family fun. Grab a rubber ring and float around the legendary Lazy River. Forget about rooftop infinity pools; this is one of the best spots to laze the day away.
Santorini Dave says “The best time of year to visit, is during Halloween season – when the Adventuredome transforms into Fright Dome, with several haunted attractions all under one roof.”
Travelling Mom says “Explore the world around Vegas. The days we spent at Zion were amongst my favourite travel memories to date. There are so many nearby sights and attractions for the family to explore.”
