Family Fun in Sin City

sin cityI giggle sometimes when I realize that my favorite place to take my family on vacation is known to many as “Sin City.” Seriously, there’s a lot to do and see in Las Vegas. When we need a break, I love to pack up the kids and take a trip to the desert. We do a few things on the stripPIN IT!, but we also take the time to enjoy the beautiful vistas in the surrounding Mojave Desert.

Maverick Helicopters

Mom, Dad and the kids will be speechless at their first aerial view of the Las Vegas strip. Maverick Helicopters offers a VIP-style tour that no visitor should skip. The pilot, after giving safety instructions and explaining the tour, will pose with your group for photos. In the air, each individual will be fitted with a headset. The tour is completely interactive as the pilot narrates the flight.

Bellagio Fountains

It never ceases to amaze me that Las Vegas has 8.5 acres of fountains right in the middle of the desert. These aren’t just any fountains either. Water shoots from 1,214 jets to heights of 460 feet in the air. Waterworks shows run regularly from 3:00 in the afternoon until midnight. This water can dance. Choreographies feature music ranging from the works of Michael Jackson to the crooning of Sinatra.

sin cityPIN IT!Pink Jeep Tours

Pink Jeep Tours are one of my favorite ways to enjoy the natural surroundings of Las Vegas. When you tire of shows and bright lights, take a day off to get in touch with nature. Pink Jeep Tours will pick you up at your hotel. Then you and the family can relax in style while learning about the amazing geology and biology of the area. Tours are even available to the Grand Canyon.

Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Dining options are everywhere in Vegas. A nice steak and a glass of red wine are my favorite Vegas cuisine. Be sure to explore the many dining options during your stay. SW Steakhouse features a water show visible from the dining area. Fiamma Trattoria features affordable but delicious pasta options.

Las Vegas truly has something for everyone to enjoy. The hotel options are seemingly endless and very unique. Gogobot makes it easy to read user reviews so you and your family will feel more comfortable with your purchase. Take a trip with your family here soon. I think you’ll have a wonderful time.

    Vegas has really rolled out the red carpet to families over the years. It used to be a fun place for grown ups, but now your entire family can have fun.

    I have done the pink jeep tour in Arizona and it was absolutely phenomenal. I would love to take a helicopter ride was probably one of the things on my bucket list to try.
