A Las Vegas Family Vacation

Las Vegas is full of great hotels. Choosing one that is family friendly isn’t as difficult as one might imagine. Traveling to Las Vegas with children is obviously not going to be a high-rolling gambling affair, but don’t worry, because there are plenty of quality Las Vegas hotels that cater to families. These hotels will ensure that a great time is had by the entire family.

Circus, Circus is one such family friendly Las Vegas hotel. It’s a hotel of three spectacular towers that are all connected by a sky shuttle. The shuttle alone is a sure fire hit with the kids. Within the complex is the Adventuredome, the world’s largest indoor theme park. It’s a great family adventure without the hot Las Vegas sun. Performers wander the grounds of the hotel and circus themed shows abound. If that’s not enough then the family is also sure to enjoy miniature golf, the 200 carnival games or even the bungee jump! If mom and dad can get away then the 100,000 square foot casino and fine restaurants are always great options.

Excalibur is another family oriented hotel that is designed to replicate King Arthur’s home of Camelot. Enter the property by crossing the moat and it’s a trip back in time for the entire family. Carnival games and themed entertainment encompasses the first floor of the hotel. A large pool, complete with waterfall and slides, begs to be visited. End the day with the popular dinner attraction, The Tournament of Kings. It is a show filled with wizards, dragons and jousting and is to be enjoyed while dining on the great food. Don’t worry mom and dad, the themed casino and restaurants are there for your own getaway as well.

The large, Sphinx-guarded, Egyptian Pyramid set down in Las Vegas is actually The Luxor hotel. The magnificent structure is even larger than the actual pyramids of Egypt! All rooms have sloped walls, due to the hotels pyramid shape, and is filled with furniture that is decorated with Egyptian symbols. Explore a recreation of King Tut’s Tomb and browse the accompanying museum. The two storey arcade and IMAX theater provide hours of fun too. Cool off in one of five pools or enjoy an Egyptian themed motion simulator ride. A large casino, fine restaurants and several spas will help mom and dad relax after a long day of family fun.

Las Vegas brings a little of the Big Easy to town in the form of the Orleans Hotel. Enjoy the 70 lane bowling alley, the 18 theater movie complex, the Tyme Out video arcade, the pool, spa, fitness center and great showroom. Parents can get some alone time by using the onsite Kids Tyme daycare facility. It is open 7 days a week and serves children 2 ½ through 12 years old. The kids will enjoy a large jungle gym, arts and craft and movies while mom and dad enjoy time at the casino.

Las Vegas is not just for the gamblers of the world. There are plenty of hotels that cater to families. Young or old, Las Vegas is a great time.
