Fun Family Friendly Attractions
You may think Las Vegas is for adults only, and while there is a lot for adults, there are many family friendly options. Kids of all ages will have a blast at places such as arcades, entertaining shows, and fun rides. Parents will love seeing their kids having a great time while they have fun too!
Time spent at the Adventuredome promises a fun filled day for all ages. Adventuredome at Circus Circus offers rides, games, and interactive fun for the entire family. Choose from slow paced rides or choose a thriller. Maybe rides aren’t your thing; check out the climbing wall, arcade, or the free clown show. The fun doesn’t stop there; Spongebob takes the stage in a 4-D adventure.
Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
Find some real wildlife at the Las Vegas Mirage Hotel. The Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat has options for everyone. See the dolphins in their natural habitat and watch them do tricks and swim in a 2.5 million gallon tank. Get up close and personal with the dolphins by choosing the swim with dolphins option. You’ll learn all about the dolphins and get to hang out with them.
Midway at Circus Circus
Midway at Circus Circus creates a carnival atmosphere that is fun for the entire family. With more than 48 games, there is something for everyone. Play your best, because many games offer great prizes! Choose from a classic such as Skee Ball or a more contemporary game such as basketball. If you play all of the carnival games, then head over to the arcade for 200 more exciting games.
Fun Dungeon at Excalibur
Located at the Excalibur Hotel and Resort, the Fun Dungeon will provide activities for hours. However, the name does not do it justice because it is certainly no “dungeon”. Choose games from the past or the newest and coolest games. Also located in the Fun Dungeon is Spongebob’s 4-D ride. It is appropriate and exciting for the entire family. There is also a Dairy Queen and a gift shop for the Fun Dungeon’s biggest fan.
Fall of Atlantis
The Fall of Atlantis show, located in Caesar’s Palace, is an amazing 7 minute show. This show will take you on a bit of a history lesson with the legend of the Atlantis; but this is not your average history lesson. Animatronic figures, colorful lights, and neat special effects will have you captivated. Because this is a free show, be sure to arrive a few minutes early before the show so you can get a great viewing spot. While you wait for the show to start, check out the Forum Shops or the 50,000 gallon salt-water tank with colorful, tropical creatures. All shows start every hour, on the hour and are available 7 days of the week.
Fremont Street Experience
The Fremont Street Experience, across from the Plaza Hotel-Casino, will have you on your feet singing and dancing. Watch the glitzy costumed dancers take the stage and perform to the exciting music. The show, entitled the Viva Vision show, is a free Las Vegas show that is fun for all ages. If you want to get an aerial view of the show, check out the Fremont Zip Line where you can soar above the street.
Madame Tussauds, at the Venetian Hotel-Casino, will get you up close and personal to celebrities. Snap your picture with them to show all of your friends how you met all the hottest celebrities in one visit. At Madame Tussauds, you are also able to see just how these wax figures are created; and let’s just say it’s not overnight!
The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is one of the United States’ natural masterpieces. Just 278 miles southeast of Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon is not something that you will want to miss. The South Rim is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so there is sure to be a time to fit even the busiest of schedules. While you are there, take in the natural beauty of the scenery and the amazing wildlife.
M&M’s World is a chocoholic’s dream come true. See the rainbow of the many M&M colors or shop the upper floors for unique M&M themed souvenirs.

With four floors of colorful chocolate experience, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Just a short drive from Las Vegas, the Hoover Dam is a sight to see. Named after former president, Herbert Hoover, this historical dam is a lesson from the past brought into the future. The dam has two tours to choose from, each offering something unique and different.
At Lake Mead, you will never guess that you were just in Las Vegas, a desert town. Lake Mead is full of fun for all ages. Boating activities, swimming, and discovering unique wildlife are just some of the fun opportunities that Lake Mead offers. So cool off from the heat of the desert at Lake Mead!
