Vegas may not seem like the place to vacation with your kids but it’s actually a great city to enjoy together as a family. In fact, Vegas offers some unique things other cities can’t. If you’re looking for one last family getaway before summer ends here are the top 5 reasons Vegas is a winner:

Free Family Activities
Not every city you visit can offer as many free family-friendly activities as Las Vegas. Kids will love watching the Bellagio fountains dance and explode into the air during the fountains daily show. The Bellagio is also home to the Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, which is currently showcasing its Summer display. Inside, families will find landscapes and visions inspired by Italy. 

Tour the World
Speaking of Italy, Las Vegas allows kids to take a tour of the world without leaving the country. The city’s many hotels and resorts offer experiences and replicas of some of the most famous cities and landmarks. Take a trip to the Big Apple at New York-New York. View the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas and take a gondola ride in Venice at The Venetian. You can even take a trip back to medieval times at Excalibur Hotel & Casino.

The Great Outdoors
Vegas is the perfect spot to let the kids explore nature. The city is located in the Mojave Desert and within driving distance to such popular places as Red Rock Canyon, Hoover Dam, Death Valley National Park and the Grand Canyon.

Kid-Friendly Shows
Believe it or not but there are plenty of kid-friendly shows to enjoy on the Strip. Some of our favorites are Tournament of Kings at Excalibur, Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, Blue Man Group, Jeff Civillico: Comedy in Action, Jabbawockeez, Laughternoon and more.

High Roller Observation Wheel
At 550-feet above the ground, the High Roller is the tallest observation wheel in the world, and one the kids will love taking a ride in. The High Roller features cabins that can fit up to 40 people, while serving as observation decks that rotate through the sky. You can see all of Vegas from one of these.
