Things for Families to Do in Las Vegas

Things for Families to Do in Las Vegas


When taking a family vacation, the city of Las Vegas offers some terrific family friendly entertainment. There is literally so much to do in this city that families will be hard pressed to do and see everything. Many people coming to Vegas are attracted to the wide array of shows. Of course some are not appropriate for children, however just as many are. Magic shows such as Nathan Burton or Mac King are fascinating and entertaining shows for families. The Tournament of Kings show is a unique offering in Vegas. Here, families eat like those living in medieval times-with their hands! While dining in this manner, a medieval tournament unfolds with jousting and sword fighting.

Some of the large casino and hotel complexes off of the strip offer many activities targeted for families, such as Sunset Station and Red Rocks. Here, movie theaters can be found as well as immense swimming facilities. Arcades are another activity offered for families. If your kids are really into video games, the Pinball Hall of Fame is a must see with vintage pinball games and arcade games. Here another perk of these resorts are that they do offer child care. Therefore, this can give mom and dad time to themselves while in Vegas to partake in playing casino games.

When mom and dad do visit a casino perhaps within their hotel or even out on the Vegas Strip, they can choose from a variety of casino games traditionally found in Bellerock. One game that many couples enjoy playing together is blackjack. They can both sit together at the table as they try to obtain hands with a count as close to 21 without exceeding it. Of course, they must also beat the dealer. With this game, it is possible for both parents to win a game of blackjack since they are playing against the dealer rather than one another.
