Las Vegas Family Activities
While Las Vegas has recently embarked on an adult oriented marketing campaign with the famous slogan, "What happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas," there are still many things for families to do here. For fun on The Strip, families will enjoy the family oriented activities in Circus Circus. Another fun highlight is visiting the M&M or Coca Cola stores near the MGM Grand Casino. Children also might like to watch the pirate fights just outside of Treasure Island. Other fun sites are the Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage and Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay.
Most of Las Vegas' museums are friendly to the entire family. For younger children, Lied Discovery Children's Museum is perfect since it offers many tactile activities like a mock grocery store. Visit our museum page to learn more.
Families will also enjoy the many day trips that are possible when visiting Las Vegas. Fortunately, many are less than a two hour drive away from Las Vegas, and many companies offer tours to these destinations by road and air. For families looking to escape the heat of the city, visiting nearby Mt. Charleston is an excellent option since temperatures are significantly cooler on the mountain. Another way to escape the heat is to go boating in Lake Mead. The nice thing about Lake Mead is that the water will cool anyone down, but the water is refreshingly warm most of the year.

These are some of the many family oriented activities in Sin City. Don't worry about bringing the kids!
