Best things to do in Las Vegas with Kids

Jody Vandergriff

That's right...with kids. Although not traditionally thought of as a child-friendly destination, Las Vegas offers tons of activities for the little ones. Don't forget to book a babysitter for at least one date night on the town though. ;)

  • Mandalay Bay

    Unlike many pools on the Vegas strip full of naked dance parties and drunk frat boys, the pool at the Mandalay Bay is super kid friendly, complete with a lazy river and a wave pool.

  • Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay

    Very cool aquarium to check out with the kiddos right on the Vegas strip.

  • Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat

    For an up close encounter with some rare and exotic animals, right on the Vegas strip!

  • 5 Star Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours

    For an elevated experience, a tour of the Grand Canyon by helicopter is a must. Take off right from the Vegas strip. Be sure to time your tour so that you land back in Vegas in time for the lights to illuminate the strip.

  • David Copperfield

    An oldie but a goodie and super kid friendly!

  • High Roller

    For a chill afternoon, hop on board the High Roller. For an adults-only experience, jump in the car with a bar!

  • The Beatles LOVE

    If you are a Beatles fan, this is a must see for adults and children alike. For me, it's the best Cirque of them all.

  • Circus Circus Hotel and Casino

    So yeah, this place is old AF and in desperate need of a make-over, but I can't help but feel intense nostalgia every time I pass through the doors. Take one for the team and bring the kiddos here - they will be entertained for hours by the old school carnival games in Midway and with the circus acts from the 1980s that light up every hour.

  • Fountains of Bellagio

    You can't miss the Fountains at the Bellagio - they are in the central strip and go off every 30 minutes, entertaining crowds with incredible choreographed water displays found no where else in the world.
