A city that prides itself on its nickname “Sin City” may not exactly seem like the place to bring your family. With its cocktails, clubbing, and mix of casinos, Las Vegas is usually billed as a place to escape from the responsibilities and pressures of parenthood.
But once you move beyond the partying and the poker, this city offers plenty of wonderful, kid friendly things to do and see. It is a city built for fun and thrills, whether you want to scream your way through a ride on the planet’s highest roller coaster or to gape and gawk at the spectacles every resort plants at its entrance. If you want adventurers that are a little lighter on the glamour and glitz, you can horseback ride, hike, or even drive through the incredible natural beauty of the red rocks just outside of town. Below are some of the top 4 Las Vegas Family Vacations:
