With its glittering casinos and elaborate shows, Las Vegas is often considered to be an adult destination. However, it is possible to do Las Vegas with kids. The area has a surprising number of family-friendly activities for you and your kids to enjoy. Here are a few of our favorite things to do in Las Vegas with kids:
Visit the Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay
While the Mandalay Bay aquarium has become famous for its sharks, it actually is home to more than 2,000 different animals. This attraction takes an hour or two to complete, and your kids may have the chance to feed a stingray or see a golden crocodile.
Spend a Day at the Discovery Children's Museum
The Discovery Children's Museum is a hands-on museum designed just for kids. It is located on the northern end of The Strip and is filled with a variety of hands-on attractions, including a working Hoover Dam model. There are designated spaces for different age groups, making this an ideal stop for families with kids of all ages and stages.
Take a Trip to the Hoover Dam
The Hoover Dam is a popular day trip from Las Vegas, and it's a worthwhile excursion with kids. While you are in the area, consider booking a Black Canyon River Tour. Black Canyon River Adventures offers a family-friendly tour that takes you and your kids down the Colorado River through the heart of the Black Canyon.
Enjoy a Ride on the High Roller
The High Roller is a giant, enclosed Ferris wheel that offers you and your family 360-degree views of the city. The ride lasts for half an hour and is a wonderful way to relax after a busy day in Las Vegas with kids.
Go Shopping at M&M's World
With four stories of M&M madness, this store is any child's dream come true. Let them pick out a few of their favorite treats in any color they could possibly imagine.
These are just a few of the many activities and attractions that you can enjoy in Las Vegas with kids. For more information on how to enhance your next family vacation to Las Vegas, contact us at Black Canyon River Adventures today.
