Even though Las Vegas is known as ‘Sin City’, it is a surprisingly popular family vacation spot.  They’ve done a lot to appeal to families and some of the new additions are very cool!  Here are five of our favorite family activities in Las Vegas:

Gondola Ride at the Venetian Outside in St. Mark’s Square, there are gondola rides through a lovely canal just like in it’s namesake of Venice, Italy.  Inside, there are cool floral displays, an air-conditioned indoor mall with cobblestone streets.  The area is filled with tons of little details that will keep your most expert I-Spy-er busy.

Discovery Children’s Museum:  The new location’s three floors of fun house over 100 hands-on exhibits that delight locals and tourists alike.  Children’s museums are always a great place to let kids explore their natural curiosity in a safe environment.   We try to seek one out in every city.

Chuck Jones Experience:  Perfect for Looney Tunes fans of all ages!  Watch cartoons, make cartoons, and create sound effects and voice overs for Chuck’s cartoons.  Located inside the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino – which is also filled with other kid-friendly options like, you guessed it: a circus!

Roller Coaster at New York – New York This roller coaster is great for ages 10 and up, spiraling all around this end of the Strip.  Inside New York- New York casino is a trip too, although it doesn’t really look much like NYC at all in my opinion.  There are, however, lots of kid-friendly restaurants here and other seasonal attractions.

Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage See live big cats and dolphins in this hidden oasis run by Siegfried and Roy.  Rare and beautiful white tigers with crystal blue eyes can be seen in only a few places, and this is one of the best.   Although the dolphins don’t put on shows, their natural playfulness is fun to see.
