Fabulous Fun in Vegas

As a travel enthusiast living in Chicago, one of my favorite places to go for fun and excitement is Las Vegas. This oasis in the Mojave Desert has it all. Of course, there are plenty of things for Mom and Dad to do on a break from the kiddos, but there are a lot of family activities that the entire family can enjoy together in Vegas as well.

1. The Bellagio Fountains

Doesn’t it seem strange that a city in the middle of the desert is the home of world-famous fountains? The choreographed waterworks displays at the Bellagio Fountains are breath taking. This 8.5-acre area features water that flies up to 460 feet in the air. My kids really enjoy watching. It’s Mom, however, whom they have to pry away in order to see anything else in the city.

2. O at Cirque de Soleil

The shows in Las Vegas are legendary. My personal favorite is Cirque de Soleil’s O. My family loves watching the acrobats and synchronized swimmers perform. This spectacular show features a shape-shifting pool that holds 1.5 million gallons of water. The kids love the stunts and the characters too.

3. The CSI Experience

My husband and I are huge fans of the show CSI. Naturally, we had to try our hand at solving crime with the CSI Experience at the MGM Grand. The process is incredibly realistic. We started by being ushered into a crime scene and taking note of all the details. There aren’t any shortcuts to solving crime, but we had fun experiencing the process in person.

4.Pink Jeep Tours

One of the reasons I love Las Vegas so much is that there are many activities outside the city limits as well as on the strip. Don’t take a trip here without exploring the beautiful scenery in the nearby countryside. Pink Jeep Tours are a great way to do this. A number of tours and packages are available. You can even take a day trip to the Grand Canyon.

There’s plenty to do and see in Las Vegas. Additionally, hotel options are wide ranging. Sites like Gogobot make it easy to read user reviews and find even more tips and tricks. I hope you get to take a trip there soon. My family and I always enjoy our times there together, and no two trips to this desert oasis are ever alike.
