Kidding Around Las Vegas: A Parent’s Guide to Las Vegas

Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority estimates that more than four million annual visitors travel with minors. Sunny weather, reasonably priced accommodations, bargain food galore, and tons of attractions make Las Vegas an especially attractive vacation destination for families.

So what do children do in the city created for adults? A lot of things. Long-time Las Vegas resident Kathy Espin has compiled a guide to hundreds of fun, wholesome, and educational activities that children of all ages will enjoy, both in Las Vegas and farther afield in nearby rural communities that still look and feel like the Wild West. This book offers first-hand details on every kid-friendly attraction, from knock-your-eyes-out thrill rides to wild-animal habitats, horseback riding to introducing your kids to an Elvis impersonator. Historical perspective and behind-the-scenes details help make visiting families feel at home in one of the most bewildering cities in the world.
