I know, family friendly Las Vegas sounds nutty, but I promise it’s true. I’ve taken my daughter to Las Vegas, and it was a fun and relatively inexpensive getaway with lots of terrific things to do. If we’re brutally honest, most kids will be delighted being someplace sunny and warm where they can be in the pool until their hands and feet prune up, but here are some of the top Las Vegas attractions for kids.

I’ve actually wanted to go to Vegas as a family, or at least with my daughter. I think she would enjoy many of the shows.
I don’t think it sounds crazy at all. There are plenty of family friendly things to do in Las Vegas, we’ve done it with and without kids.
I am definitely going to bring my son and husband in Las Vegas. This place is really beautiful and fun to visit.
We went to Las Vegas many years ago before we had kids. It’s great to see there’s so much to see and do in Vegas with kids!
This would be such a fun family experience. The Tournament of Kings: Excalibur would keep the kiddos entertained for sure. I’m even looking forward to Knights battling on horseback.
Everyone always assumes Vegas is only for adults but as you shared, there is SO much do to there with your family and kids. Great ideas and so much fun!
I love that there are some family friendly things to do in Las Vegas. I’ve always wanted to go with my daughters. I’m glad to hear of these places.
My parents live in Las Vegas – when my sister and her kids visit them, she does ALL these kid friendly things, although she might not have done them all so I should send her this list. When my son is old enough, my husband and I will definitely do these things with him 🙂
We have family that moved to Las Vegas. They keep telling us about the cool things you can do with your family. Vegas is not only about the casino.
Wow! Looks like you and your family really had a wonderful and fun time in Las Vegas. I heard that this is really a great place to visit!
We got some looks and comments when we visited Las Vegas with our kids last year, but for the most part it was very kid-friendly. There are a few spots to avoid, and I do wish more of the hotel/ casinos were smoke-free, but it was a fun trip!
I always thought that Las Vegas was all about casinos and shows and fabulous hotels. I am glad that there are family/kid friendly places there too! I would love to take my family there someday. I think I would enjoy visiting those family friendly places instead of the casinos. 🙂
I haven’t been to Las Vegas, but I always thought of it as a city for adults. It is nice to see that there are plenty of options for kids too.
I’ve never thought to bringing the kiddos to Las Vegas. I have to look into booking a family trip. Thanks for sharing this information.
Hi! I love this post and couldn’t agree more. Many people think Vegas is just for gambling, partying and clubbing but there is so much more! It can be considered as the entertainment hub of US with so many options to choose from! My wife and I don’t have kids yet but have definitely discussed making this a family vacation. Thanks for sharing.
