February 28, 2019admin0

Contrary to what most may believe, you don’t have to go to California or to Arizona to the next states over to visit family-friendly places. Las Vegas, with its glitzy casinos, adult entertainment, and its “Sin City” nickname, might not be the first destination that comes to mind when planning a family-friendly trip. However, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the frequent flights and hotel discounts for a budget-conscious getaway, even with kids in tow. Las Vegas offers a surprisingly wide array of attractions that will delight children and adults alike, many of them being free. Here are some of our favorite family-friendly things to do on your next Las Vegas visit!

  • Discover a luscious rainforest and its inhabitants at the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo Hotel
  • Get close to lions, giraffes and exotic birds at the Lion Habitat Ranch
