Fun Family Vacations in Las Vegas, NV
Las Vegas is more known for its gambling and Sin City moniker than for being a family friendly vacation spot, but the city has definitely changed to being a fun destination for the whole family. In addition to the casinos being located every 10 feet, there are a ton of attractions in Vegas where everyone can have fun. Here are a few fun stops for the family to enjoy.

Circus Circus Adventuredome

The Circus Circus Adventuredome is one of the best places for a family vacation on the Las Vegas Strip. Located beneath a 5-acre glass dome, you will find amusement rides, arcade games, circus performers, and carnival games all under one roof. There's even miniature golf, laser tag, and an indoor roller coaster.

The Stratosphere hotel offers a few extreme thrills for the family. The 1,149-foot-tall tower offers a host of rides that teeter at the very top of the resort. Big Shot raises and drops guests at the top of the tower, X Scream launches visitors 30 feet over the edge of the tower, and Insanity spins visitors over the edge of the tower. This one is for the thrill-seeking family only.
