Considering Las Vegas for a family getaway? Las Vegas may be known as Sin City, but the odds are in this glitzy town you’ll hit the family-fun jackpot.
My family visited the Adventuredome at Circus Circus earlier this year. The Junior rides are perfect for the little ones. My daughter and her cousin enjoyed Miner Mike (tot size roller coaster) which is suitable for kids between 33 and 58 inches tall. The kids also enjoyed the B.C. Bus and Drifters (ferris wheel). You must be at least 42 inches to ride these two rides solo unless your accompanied by a paying adult. There’s a little bit for everyone at the Adventuredome and what a great place to have a birthday party!

Would you like to explore outside of Las Vegas? Make sure to visit the Hoover Dam. The Hoover Dam impounds Lake Mead and is located 35 miles outside of Las Vegas in Boulder City. Click here for more info. Or maybe take a hike and explore the beauty of Red Rock Canyon. Wildlife, vegetation and cultural resources can round out your fun filled Las Vegas trip! More here.
Make sure to bring sunblock and prepare for hot Vegas days. Unless of course you’re staying at the Circus Circus or Excalibur. The AC is wonderful!
