Las Vegas may be hailed as “Sin City” but it actually can be a very family friendly destination. From the over-the-top themed resorts in Las Vegas to the numerous exclusively kid-oriented attractions, there’s more than enough here to keep the whole family happy.

 

My family learned just how fun Vegas can be when we took a mini break there last summer. Our eldest son met me and my two younger children in Las Vegas during his summer vacation from law school in Massachusetts.

 

Based on our personal experience, here are 5 five kid-friendly Las Vegas activities that are definitely worth a try:

 

The Buffets

 

What kid doesn’t love gorging on an endless supply of food? Our kids loved having meals at the many all-you-can-eat buffets dotted all over the Vegas Strip. Some buffets have special “kids eat free” deals, so make sure you check some of these out.

 

The Shows

 

Although the Vegas adult themed shows are certainly not suitable for kids, there’s a plethora of kid friendly shows to choose from. A lot of the magic and Cirque du Soleil shows can be enjoyed by kids. Browse online reviews before your trip to make sure shows are appropriate as well as recommended by others.

 

Amusement Park Rides

 

Multiple Las Vegas resorts feature theme park-like rides and most of these are safe for children to enjoy. A great stop is the Circus Circus resort and casino that has a huge amount of rides and games to enjoy as well as free live circus performances shown throughout the day.

 

Pools

 

All the top Las Vegas resorts feature amazing swimming pools, many with water slides and lazy rivers. My kids loved spending their afternoons here and it also gave them an opportunity to hang out with other kids as well. Just make sure you bring a high SPF, as Vegas is incredibly hot most of the year.

 

Animal Attractions

 

If your kids love animals, they’re going to love all the exotic animals housed within various resorts on the Strip. Stand out menageries include the dolphins and tigers at the Mirage and the famous MGM lions.

 

As you can see, Las Vegas is more than an adults-only zone. There are far more family-friendly Vegas attractions than I’ve listed here, but these are the activities that my family enjoyed doing the most. Before you head to Sin City, be sure to do your research and find some family-friendly activities of your own. There’s a great deal to choose from!
