You might not think of Las Vegas as a place to take your family on vacation, but after seeing these reasons, you will want to book a trip to Vegas and bring your kids too!

Yesterday marked the 6th year in a row that we’ve visited Las Vegas with the kids.
We always go in July and we always pack our schedules with tons of fun things to do. From new culinary adventures to pool time, plus a sprinkling of museum learning we always have a really good time.
These are our favorite things to do with kids in Las Vegas.
- Experience a new cuisine. There are so many different types of food and cultures represented in Las Vegas. From Chinese to Indian food and beyond. Pick a new type to try!
- See a show. Do you and your little ones love music? Or maybe it’s all about human acrobatics? There is a show for everyone. Pete and Maddie love music and high energy performances while Ashley and the Little one love the shows featuring cats and dogs so we often split up and we each see our favorite type. There are so many shows in Vegas and they are often adding new ones.
- Go swimming. Plan to swim in the pool each morning. We try to get there just as it opens and we stay for about an hour. Vegas has some great pools, including wave pools, and it’s fun just to spend some days relaxing by one. It can get warm in the summer so that is why we go first thing in the morning.
- Go shopping. The girls love to shop and there is some very good shopping to be found in Las Vegas. From beautiful malls to discounted outlet malls… there are a lot of shopping opportunities.
- Check out some dry land and water animals. There are aquariums and other animal viewing facilities in Las Vegas. See them all! They are fun for everyone in the family.
- Visit a Museum. There are a lot of them in Las Vegas along with exhibits that pop up all the time. We’ve seen world class photographer exhibits, the Titanic exhibit, museums about the early history of Vegas and the Mob, space exploration and area 51, just to name a few. Plus Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon are not too far away.
Another thing we always do it stop at CVS once we get into town.
We like to have some healthy snacks available in our room for the girls to snack on whenever they get hungry. We love to try new foods on vacations, but we don’t like to over do it and having healthy choices available in the room really helps.
It feels like there is a CVS everywhere, including on the strip… and they are building another new one right now on the other end, so it’s easy to stock up wherever you are staying!
I bought the Organic Cranberry Juice, Pete picked the almonds, Ashley the trail mix, Maddie the baked rice crisps and the little one is in love with the 8-grain wheat crackers!
